Romance Novels Romance Novel Reviews Romance Reviews

There, I hope that title just upped our ranking on Google when people search for “romance novel reviews.” I looked in our referrer log and just about died laughing because here’s what people were Googling for when they stumbled on us:

- Sarah Paoletti
– Smart bitches
– Trashy bitches
– Dominican bitches

I’m going to say Romance Novel Review several more times throughout this entry because maybe Google will pick up on the key words (i.e. romance novels) and perhaps our target audience (people looking for actual romance novel reviews) shall start trickling in, as opposed to people who are looking for bitches of various nationalities and varieties, because the latter category would be people who probably aren’t interested in romance novel reviews. Maybe Sarah and I should start employing a system wherein we use the word “romance novel” the way the Smurfs use the word “smurf.”

Hey Sarah, are you having a romance novel day? Mine is absolutely romance novel-icious. Would you like to review more romance novels? Gosh I sure love to read and review romance novels.

OK, I’ve typed the phrase “romance novel reviews” so many times now that it’s beginning to lose meaning for me.

But in good news, we are the #1 Google search result for the phrase “trashy bitch” and “smart bitches.” Go Team Smart Bitches! However, sorry to disappoint y’all, no Dominicans here, just an agnostic Chink and a honkey Hebe.

    Hi guys, I love this site! I totally agree with your thoughts on reading romance novels. It’s so hard trying to justify reading romance novels to your friends who give you looks everytime you pick one up. I don’t understand it sometimes, if people are allowed to watch movies like Dude, Where’s my car?, I don’t know why they can’t accept 300 pages of proper words, that at the very least will improve your command of the language. Do keep this up, and I will definitely be a regular.

    I do have one grouch though, by calling this site smart bitches who love thrashy novels, aren’t we all subconciously concurring with our ‘less-enlightened’ friends that we are indeed reading thrashy books? Oh well, that’s nitpicking and fortunately, unlike them, I can see the humour in this!

    SOOKS! How exciting that you’re here. Another way to keep in contact with you, yayyy! I’m glad you’re enjoying the content on the website.

    As for the name of the site—well, you do have a point and it’s certainly a valid interpretation. We didn’t mean it that way, though, and there are a bunch of reasons we picked the name. Sarah will probably pipe up with her perspective, but here’s my take on it:

    - It’s funny. Or at least, I think it’s a funny name. I think slurs in general can be really funny when employed among friends who aren’t too thin-skinned.

    - It’s a way of “owning” the derogatory terms, much in the way gay people have taken some of the sting away from derogatory terms like “faggot,” “dyke” and “queen” by using it themselves.

    - Depending on the context and the person using the words, slurs can be a term of affection. I’ll occasionally call my friends “bitches” and “bastards”, but they’re almost always preceded by a complimentary adjective, e.g. beautiful bitch, magnificent bastard. (The names I call my cats are even worse, and I will KILL to defend the little douchebags from harm.) “Smart bitch” would definitely fall in this category.

    - The word “trashy” is meant to make fun of the snobbery of the literati (or shit, anyone who has never read a romance yet feels qualified to criticize the genre) and again, to own the term and take away its power to hurt. Yes, I like trashy fiction. What of it? I can still kick your ass in a math test.

    Anyway, so happy to see you here, darlin’. Come back soon, we add new things on a regular basis here.
