We’re feminists, and we read romance. Deal with it.
Love in a Time of Feminism is a blog for all things romance. YA…NA…Adult…you name it! We love our cowboys just as much as our shapeshifters. We believe in equality and empowerment, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like a good swoonfest.
You’ll find reviews, discussions, spotlights and author takeovers, plus themed months!
Things you’ll find on this blog:
- Lots of swearing
- Strong people who love strong people
- Gifs galore
- Plenty of covers with half naked men
- Anything from clean YA to the dirtiest of erotica
We’re not here to do an in-depth analysis of each and every book from a feminist slant. We’re not here to write perfectly polished and diplomatic reviews to please authors. That’s what newspapers and journals and dissertations are for. We’re readers writing for other readers about the books we loved… and the ones we didn’t.
The Loved Up Feminists
The Faerie Queen
The creator of Love in a Time of Feminism, Dani is a computer geek, technical consultant, and blogger at Dani Reviews Things. She loves Young Adult and New Adult books, with a particular penchant for all things fae. She likes her books with hot heroes who can take charge…but only if the kickass heroines want them to!
You can find her on Twitter as @dani_reviews!
The Ginger Snap
Emily joined in 2018, and we were so excited to have her. She runs XO Editing and Writing. Emily loves regency and contemporary romance with strong, ambitious female heroines who are on equal footing with their heroes. She’s also a sucker for beta heroes and the forced-proximity trope.
You can find her on Twitter as @smooches_seitan!
Jamie brings balance to the table with her romantic scepticism. She runs Books and Ladders. Jamie’s favourite thing ever is aliens, and she’d gladly be abducted and held for experimentation.
You can find her on Twitter as @booksandladders!
