This series holds a very... strange place in my heart. When I’m reading it, I’m completely engrossed and totally obsessed. When waiting between installments, I certainly am eagerly anticipating the next one, but I have no problem waiting. And by the time that next one comes out… I seem to have forgotten all the pertinent details. This doesn't usually happen with books I love, but love these books I do.

How Reading Made Me a Feminist (Or Realize I Kinda Already Was One)

Books and Feminism, How Reading Made Me a Feminist

I’m a twenty-five year-old woman, and I consider being a feminist a large part of my identity. Ten years ago, that wasn’t the case. Hell, five years that wasn't the case.

Growing up, I fell victim to the narrative that many people do—feminism was an ugly word used to describe man-hating, overly-sensitive, “politically-correct” (as if this were a bad thing), crazy people.

I believed that feminism sought to destroy the nuclear family, force women from the home, and spread anger and bitterness. I was ignorant to the actual meaning of feminism and what it sought to do.
