Week Two for OUR favorites, Day Two: Blogs and Bloggers, Next up *(un)Conventional Bookviews*aka Lexxie Lin+ Ellen Oh's Prophecy/Warrior & Sarwat Chadda's The Savage Fortress/The City of Death giveaway!

Up next! Ok so ,some blogs you follow for the book rec's, some you follow for the messages being put out there by the blogger themselves, others, well...Because they're just damn fun!

Our second honor goes to...
*(Un)Conventional Book Views*

Sorting through the excess that is the blogosphere, it's great to see the a book blog that takes an unconventional look at the way they review.

Originally from Europe, between sloshing through close to 150+books a year, (Un)Convential Bookviews, aka *Lexxie* brings up excellent discussions on her blog, on the state of sexuality amongst women, and young women in novels.

They are topics one should read if you get a chance. Slut shaming and robbing girls and women of their right to explore their sexuality the way they want to should be unacceptable, but has become so apart of our culture, very few don't even realize when they're doing so.

A woman doesn't have to be a virgin to be morally just, and allowing her to have experience before the course of meeting the hero should not a reason to question her values. These are conversations that have made me question the books I read, but also the way I write myself. And it's not to separate women who have experience versus those who do not.

But it's conversations like these that we avoid, that we don't think it's ok for girls to even have sexuality. Not Cool!

There are a few topics she's brought up, but for anyone who'd like to ring in, here's a few links to some of the interesting topics brought up on her blog. 

If those dont make you a fan, you're loony, and probably nothing else will XD

You can follow her many ways if you'd like to know more through these ventures. She's extremely active/busy so dont get upset if she doesn't add you, or isnt able to herself!
