I wanted to let you know about a few updates to the site and future reviews.
1. I will continue to be doing my best to provide comprehensive and easy to find trigger and content warnings for all books I read. If there is something I miss, please, please contact me so I can add it and update the review. I am still learning about some various types of content warnings and triggers, so do not hesitate to let me know.
2. All trigger and content warnings will be near the beginning of the review and bolded where they begin, so you can choose to skip them or not. I will try to avoid extensive detail in them, unless it seems appropriate. If the warning is long, I use italics to indicate which content is a trigger or content warning and which is a different part of the review. This way, individuals can skip them if they wish to.
3. Any books that don’t meet criterion for the blog (aka, a dominant culture narrative of romance with a cis male and cis female pairing, for example) will be reviewed solely on Goodreads. I may link to them here, if that’s something of interest. The blog will continue to be focused on reviewing books outside of the dominant cultural narratives in romance and other genres. This includes LGBTQIA romances, romances with at least one non white character in a non tokenizing or exoticizing way, polyamorous romances, romances involving folks with disabilities and many others.
That’s it for now, but I would love to hear from you and any of your thoughts. Thanks so much for following me and enjoying the reviews!
Until next time,
