ugh, I definitely am! let us know how these books are! they look really interesting and I might check some out.
It’s all for my dissertation, so it’s a loooot of work, but at least I’m interested in it! I haven’t read much of the theory stuff yet, but I definitely recommend Judith Butler, lots of interesting stuff about gender as an act you perform and are socialised into and stuff! And I love some fairy tales and then the Bloody Chamber is full of Gothic, feminist rewritings of fairy tales which are really interesting to think about, and the Bell Jar is amazing (although kind of painful) and Lolita is CREEPY AS SHIT but sort of beautifully written as well which makes it a really, really odd read.
