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.

Better Off Red

Better Off Red - Rebekah Weatherspoon I arrived at the 5% mark of the book and closed the book, thinking in the lines of :
— damn, the cheese of college stuff plus the cheese of vampire stuff? I feel like I drank a whole chocolate fountain. I can't, no more, please.
— an orgy of 18 year-olds sounds terrifying. I should go back to my thirty something jaded lesbians.
— why does this book reads like hetero porn?
— was there a "mind control rape erotica" tag on the book description? I can't remember.
— come on there are a thousand unusual story ideas with vampire romance that don't start with mind control rape.
— oh god we lesbians have actually managed to do worse than heteros. And twilight.
— I've never understood you north americans and your frat/sorority stuff anyway.

But nah, nope, sorry, I'm not giving this book the chance to show me it can rise above rapey mind control femslash.
