Book Review: The Sexy Librarian's Big Book of Erotica

I’m a nerd. I’ll be the first to admit that and proudly accept the fact that, yes, I can name Robins from Batman in order and why Wonder Woman is the best super heroine in the DC comics universe. So when I was assigned The Sexy Librarian's Big Book of Erotica, edited by Rose Caraway and published by Cleis Press, I was a bit curious to see how it could satisfy that nerd inside me.

I was already pretty happy with a small quote by Neil Gaiman.

“Google can bring you back 100,000 answers. A librarian can bring you back the right one.” No wonder librarians are usually the most common sexual fantasy.

The one thing I really liked about the stories in the book, is the fact that it was categorized and filed like the old school library filing system. It made finding a story that piqued my interest very simple. The stories themselves are also short enough to read on a 15 minute break but still very fun and light-hearted.

If I had one complaint about the book itself, it’s the use of “gypsies”. In case you weren’t aware, “gypsy” is a racial slur against Romani people. Now it wasn’t enough to make me stop reading, but it is a concern.

Other than that, it was a great read with lots of variety and cute stories! Happy reading!
