Reviews of speculative fiction, YA, middle grade, and graphic novels, along with stray thoughts, links, and pictures.
One year, I did a super thorough overview of every book that included rape or references to rape. This year, I'm being a hell of a lot less rigorous and just including the three that spring to mind. I don't know, okay, this is just where I am.
Vicious Circle by Ellie E. Ire has a plot largely motivated by a false rape accusation.
Shifter by Jennifer Lynn Reynolds is a romance where the heroine is threatened with rape and the hero hopes the female villain will be rapes.
Expendable by James Alan Garner features a protagonist who's motivation includes seeking justice for the rape of a woman she meets on an alien planet.
I'll try to take better notes for 2017 as this isn't terribly thorough.
Still working on gender stats for 2016 as well.
