Review: Q-T-Pies, by Balogun Ojetade


I was gonna talk to you all about all sorts of topics related to this book, like intra-race relations, misogyny, black women in horror, all those good things…but the more I read Q-T-Pies the more I just kept thinking… “This isht is [bleep] up.” Repeating over and over again like a broke record. Now, that’s […]


Review: Princess Elena of Avalor

by Cheryl Wollner


I first heard about the Disney Channel show Princess Elena of Avalor last summer when speaking with a Chicana high school student about how she notices the lack of Latin@ and Chican@ representation in animation and live action programming. Elena of Avalor begins to break that barrier, featuring Disney’s first Latina Princess. Last week, I […]

REVIEW: The Night Circus (Erin Morgenstern)

by Cheryl Wollner


I recently blogged about how Celia Bowen, the protagonist from The Night Circus (2011,) has joined my list of Favorite Female Characters. She’s a surprising addition to this list, because despite the novel’s high praise and awards, I did not enjoy the novel. Two magicians pit their students against each other in a game of […]


Fairy Tales for the New World Order: Circuits and Slippers, edited by Jaylee James


It is both gratifying and heartbreaking when reality begins to resemble sci-fi and fantasy: genre fiction gets an unexpected upgrade as the predictions of mere writers come true. This collection of twenty sci-fi infused fairy tales, published in September of 2016, came at exactly the right time. Now that dystopia is becoming the new normal, […]


Review: “Ten Days’ Grace” (Foz Meadows)

by E. Young


I had a chance to view Nocturnal Animals, directed by Tom Ford, and I had a few … thoughts. (No spoilers promise) This movie isn’t as gimmicky as I thought it would be and wow this actually accurately depicts how women are treated in unfaithful relationships.
