Pillows & Blankets

I'm a social geography student from Paris, and a contributor for a new blog dedicated to pop culture & intersectional feminism called Critical Writ. I'm particularly interested in lesbian fiction of every genre.


I have a preference for romance & Fantasy/sci-fi, and will pay a lot of attention to gender roles, healthy/unhealthy relationships and consent in stories I read.

Blindsided - Karis  Walsh A good, touching romance, but a hard one to get into as I felt the book tells too much and doesn't show enough. The beginning in particular suffers from it as we're treated to frustrating characterization infodumps that I feel could have been much better integrated in the narrative, instead of having a long introspective inner monologue every other page— I think that may be the result of having next to no actual side characters beyond our two protagonists and their dog : they don't really interact with anybody else but themselves.

Still, it's a good read.
