Fuelled by Fiction

Vita sine libris mors est; Life without books is death

Everyone has the things that fuel them. Those things can be as varied as the people around us. Good conversations, friends, family, beer, art, music, work. Here at Fuelled by Fiction, I believe that a good story is a part of a good life and that intersectional feminism is mandatory. And, well… so is caffeine.

I started writing book reviews in 2013–first on Goodreads and then on Tumblr. In 2014, I moved them to their home here at Fuelled by Fiction. As I explored the bookish community online, I expanded from solely reviews to other types of bookish discussions and more.


Today on Fuelled by Fiction you can find the same bookish content you’ve always found, and more. I talk about social justice issues, mental health, pop culture, and blogging how-tos. Furthermore, you can hop over to the Review Policy page if you’d like to work with me.

Hi! I’m Beth! I’m the founder of Fuelled by Fiction. I’m an east coast Canadian girl, probably rocking double denim as we speak. When I’m not reading or writing, I’m off studying somewhere or snuggling my kitty while marathonning something gay on Netflix. I love talking about social justice, mental health, and popular culture through a queer feminist lens*. Right now I’m a grad student studying to get my Master’s in Women and Gender Studies.

I’ve written for Book Riot and Novel Suspects, and have been part of the She Reads blog network.
