So since my computer time is limited this week, I'd like to share a few of my new favorite blogs to visit:
- Women Running From Houses: Showcases covers of 60's and 70's gothic romance novels, most of which display *duh* women running from houses. The jacket copy for Carol, the Pursued (1979) reads, "A captive of a nightmare religious cult - that was the fate that beautiful young Carol Ingraham fled." Yeah! So these books might have set the feminist movement back decades but hey, this kind of campy, pulpy vapid entertainment couldn't come without a price. Required reading.
- Maybe Tomorrow?: Beth is Welsh (like my name!) and also a fellow Canadian. Not only does she have a great site layout, but her book blog is always chock full of the latest vamp, paranormal romance and urban fantasy news and reviews. If this sounds like your thing, you'll want to subscribe.
- The Book Lady's Blog: Rebecca was one of the organizers of the BEA Blogger Convention and it was through the surrounding press that I heard about her blog. She writes real, in-depth reviews, has sass to spare, identifies as a feminist and knows all the cool people. This is a great find for me.
- Hot Guys Reading Books: Yeah, I'm going there. It's a Tumblr with hot guys. Reading books. I wouldn't qualify many of these men as being strictly hot hot - like *phew* is it warm in here or is it just me hot? - but there's the odd gem. And since I wrote a series on what/how men read, I'm practically obliged to give this blog props.
