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, we believe that a good story is a part of a good life and that intersectional feminism is mandatory. And, well… so is caffeine.

Est. 2014

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


Today on Fuelled by Fiction you can find the same great content you’ve always found, and more. We cover social justice issues, mental health, pop culture, blogging how-tos, and, of course, all things bookish. Furthermore, you can hop over to the Review Policy page and work closely with Beth on promotions here on Fuelled by Fiction or with freelance content/copy writing and editing.

Beth O’Brien

Beth is the founder of Fuelled by Fiction. She’s an east coast Canadian girl, probably rocking double denim as we speak. When she’s not reading or writing, she’s off studying somewhere or snuggling her kitty while marathonning something gay on Netflix. She loves talking about social justice, mental health, and popular culture through a queer feminist lens*. Right now she’s a grad student studying to get her Master’s in Women and Gender Studies. As a writer, her goal is to write content for, and participate in, communities that are progressive and safe, especially for those who are underserved and underrepresented.

She’s written for Book Riot and Novel Suspects, and you can find her on the She Reads blog network.
