Friday Feels- February 28th, 2020

Happy Friday Night Worms!  It’s our last #fridayfeels of Women in Horror Month and I had a completely different post planned for today but then I binged this whole book. (It was supposed to be a buddy read and I just flew through it, oops.) As soon as I set it down I knew I had to show this one off instead of my originally planned photo. THE BABYSITTER’S COVEN by Kate Williams is as much fun on the inside as it is on the outside. There are some...

Hysteria and Female Writers

How dumb old-timey doctors made females do nothing all day because they made books instead of babies.


For me to tell you what a struggle it was for early female writers, especially female horror writers, I have to give you a very brief overview of what hysteria was. Hysteria was the first mental disorder attributed to women. It was a catch-all-dumpster-fire of a diagnosis for women who didn’t behave like men thought they should. Didn’t want to have sex?

There are stories from some AMAZING authors in here and they do not disappoint. And just look at that cover,...

The Importance of Female Protagonists by Sadie Hartmann

I was a skinny, gawky young girl. I would eventually stop growing at six feet tall but all through middle school and high school, my body was stretching; especially my legs and my feet. 7th and 8th grade P. E. was torture. We had to dress down in the girl's locker room in front of one another. I didn't feel like other girls. They were way shorter than me and already filling out their bras. Sometimes I would stuff my gym clothes into my regular clothes and act like I was just using the toilet but I was really changing...

February is Women in Horror Month and I am celebrating by reading works from lots of female authors. I think that all readers should be making a conscious effort to read female authors in February and every other month. The fact is that horror is largely a male-driven industry. Go to any major book store’s horror section (if they have one) and count how many female authors you see on the shelves. I’ve done the legwork and I can...
