"I want to like her but she's the epitome of white feminism. She finally spent a little time reflecting on her mistakes but she doesn't loathe herself enough. Also? When is the book going to get around to talking about people of color? And what of the resistance? No one took to the streets when they started laying down the law?

This author is no Margaret Atwood but I imagine that doesn't matter to most people."

"For the love of all that is holy, if the breakup is all this story has been building up to I swear I am going to throw my phone across the room. I hate that the relationship is front and center and that it is making me have sexist thoughts. Cheese and crackers, Mal, man the hell up! Who cares that suddenly your girlfriend is the center of all the attention? I mean, besides you?! You are the worst! Beat it!" May 01, 2017 07:52PM

"Totally OITNB set in the UK but with ghosts and zero used tampons hidden in food. So, overall, kind of good." Apr 06, 2017 12:01PM

I wasn't particularly impressed with this story at first. The writing was at times sort of clunky, the story had a disjointed feel to it. Characters accepted strange occurrences in the blink of an eye and didn't ask many questions. However as the sto ...more

"This is a racist piece of shit excuse for a book. I'm sorry, but I can't take a book that "turns the tables on racism" by--once again--victimizing poor, young, fragile caucasian girls and vilifying POC seriously. There is no excuse for blatant rac..." Read more of this review »

What do they study now, our girls? A bit of addition and subtraction, telling time, making change. Counting, of course. They would learn counting first. All..." Read more of this review »

Singing the Dogstar Blues by Alison Goodman
"As seen on The Readventurer

Singing the Dogstar Blues is that rare specimen of YA fiction called science fiction. That's right, not dystopia or rather dystopian romance, not sci-fi romance, but real deal sci-fi. There are no love triangles in it, n..." Read more of this review »
