Hi everyone and happy Friday! Part of wanting to post frequently and more often is going to be monthly reading wrap-ups. I’ll be honest, though: only about half of the books I read are sapphic. I know, I know. Because of that, I’m going to include non-sapphic books in my wrap-ups because I still want to share what I’ve been reading!
- The Prince and the Troll by Rainbow Rowell (December 2020)
This novella was part of a collection of fairy tale retellings.
- Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston (May 2019)*
Yes, I started off the new year by rereading a favorite for the fifth or sixth time. I don’t need anyone’s judgment.
- Legendborn by Tracy Deonn (September 2020)*
If this book isn’t already on your TBR, do yourself a favor and add it now. Also, the protagonist’s best friend is sapphic and there’s a side-character sapphic couple!
- Down Comes the Night by Allison Saft (March 2021)*
An atmospheric enemies-to-lovers fantasy that I had a ton of fun reading, and has a bisexual protagonist! I’ll post my review here at the beginning of March!
- Perfect on Paper by Sophie Gonzales (March 2021)*
Omgomgomg. I can already see this as being one of my top reads of 2021! Another book with a bisexual protagonist, but this one deals with biphobia head-on. Honestly, everyone should read this book.
- Into the Heartless Wood by Joanna Ruth Meyer (January 2021)
This one was… interesting. I loved the idea of tree sirens, and this was a wholly original concept (as far as I know), but y’know… I’d love it a lot more if it was sapphic.
*included sapphic characters of some sort
Goodreads tells me I’m on track for my 2021 Reading Goal after finishing that sixth book, so here’s hoping I can keep up the momentum. What did you read in January?
