Welcome! I'm Cassandra, a writer and book lover producing content about the intersection of books and politics. I started my blog because I looked at the state of political discourse, particularly online, and thought we desperately needed more centrist and grounded perspectives on what's going on. I have a special interest in dissecting instances of cancel culture and defending people who have been mobbed for wrongthink. Things are...not very sane right now. I hope the things I write can be a small drop in the bucket to counterbalance the extreme ideology and intolerance of dissent currently pervading the book world and society as a whole. Support from readers like you helps me keep the site running and keep writing, and I appreciate it more than I can say.

My content ranges from deep investigative dives into current events to book reviews and short opinion pieces. I typically publish posts at least once a month. All blog posts will be cross-posted here, in addition to patrons-only posts, updates, and discussions.
