Just giving a feminist critique of the books I read. Pretty simple!


My views don't represent all feminists, as we're all different. There are liberal feminists, eco-feminists, radical feminists . . . and so on. I consider myself an anarcha-feminist, which means that I'll also include critiques of capitalism and neoliberalism in my analysis. 

Additionally, I don't think feminism is just about gender -- it's about race, class, sexuality, etc.

I'm also not here to engage with anti-feminists, sorry! 


New Start

So, I've decided to frame my reviews: a feminist focus.


All reviews prior to this post (likely mass-posted on 5 Oct.) don't necessarily reflect my current views, nor a feminist analysis. They were written in 2010, before I had my "click."


I don't know how often I'll be posting or reviewing, as I'm pretty busy this season, but we'll see! I hope to use this space to refine my writing skills and delve deeper into feminist thought.


As my blog description states, I'm not here to debate, though if I'm wrong about something, feel free to point it out. I don't intend to host discussions here about the merits of feminism, or to convert skeptics; that's another, separate part of my life.


I enjoy reading and hope that, above all, that love shines through any critiques I might have.
