Please keep giving me all the f/f romances πŸ’•

Hi, and howdy. Welcome to my blog 🀠😊

I took my mum for her Covid Vaccine today and I have never been so jealous watching a person be stabbed in the arm before. I want it!

Besides from being jealous, today I come to you to talk about some F/F romances I’ve added to my TBR recently and am super hyped for!

We’ve come leaps and bounds when it comes to LGBTQ+ fiction but I feel like sometimes f/f stories are overshadowed by popular m/m books. I in no way want to take away from the importance of those stories, I just want to show a little love to the Sapphic books too, which I’m happy to see are slowly becoming just as hyped!!


The Lost Girls by Sonia Hartl

After the vampire craze of the early 2010’s which left us all burnt out and fed up with books and shows about blood-suckers, I’m happy to say I’m back on board. This is evident by the fact that I read the entire Vampire Academy series last month and can be found scrolling the Twilight Renaisance tag in the early hours of the morning.

What I’m really loving at the minute though is fresh and fun takes on vampire stories and The Lost Girls seems like it’s going to be just that.

Right from the bat we have the tag line of “it’sΒ John Tucker Must DieΒ with a feminist girl gang of vampires” which has me hooked. I’m getting really good vibes from this book already, and I’m excited to read it a soon as!


Adiba Jaigirdar

It’s been a year since Adiba Jaigirdar’s debut novel, The Henna Wars was released, and I still haven’t read it. I’ve also, only just become aware of the existence of her sophomore book, Hani and Ishu’s Guide to Fake Dating.

I recently purchased both of these books so hopefully the fact that I haven’t read either of these yet will be rectified soon. I’m looking forward to reading these for a number of reasons. First of all, the covers are adorable and I’m expecting the insides to match. Secondly, I’ve heard really great things. And thirdly, both of these books centre around tropes I love!

With The Henna Wars, we have rivals-to-lovers as it follows two girls who have competing henna businesses at their school. And Hani and Ishu’s Guide to Fake Dating has, you guessed it fake dating after one of the girls says she has a girlfriend after coming out to her friends as bisexual and they invalidate her sexuality because she’s only ever dated guys.

Like I said, I’ve only just got my hands on a copy of these books but I’m really excited!!


Some Girls Do by Jennifer Dugan

I currently have another Jennifer Dugan book sitting on my shelf, waiting patiently to be read and I have a really good feeling about her books. Does anybody else ever feel like they have some sort of sixth sense for when they’re going to enjoy a book? Well that’s what’s happening for me right now.

I don’t know over much about this book, besides from the pretty cover and this one line of the synopsis “openly gay track star falls for a closeted, bisexual teen beauty queen with a penchant for fixing up old cars“.

Hopefully I’ll get to Verona Comics within the next month or so, I’ll love it (🀞) and can impulse buy this straight away!


She Drives Me Crazy by Kerry Quindlan

I took one look at this cover and added it to my TBR instantly. How could I not? Infact, I can’t offer you any hint on what this book is about because I don’t know. I’m guessing jock girlfriends but I don’t need to know.


I Think I Love You by Auriane Desombre

Again with the pretty covers. I can’t deal! I especially love the colours on this one, but that’s completely besides the point.

I haven’t heard much about I Think I Love You but it’s definitely caught my eye. This book follows two girls with very different personality’s and outlooks on life who have to have to make a film together for a film festival. Something along those lines. There’s some fun puns in the Goodreads synopsis and I’d be lying if I said those didn’t win me over πŸ˜‚


Last Night at the Telegraph Club by Malinda Lo

I said it in a recent review: historical fiction is not my go to genre … however if more LGBTQ+ histocial fiction are being released, then that’s something I can definitly get behind.

This book is set in the 1950’s America which is not a great time for two girls to be falling in love. It follows a teenage girl called Lily who stumbles across a lesbian bar called the Telegraph Club.

As well as having a sixth sense for books I feel I’m going to love, I also have a sixth sense for books that I think are going to make me cry. I don’t know what about this cover or synopsis is making me think that I’ll be bawling my eyes out at some point while reading, but there ya go.


Bonus: Ciara Smyth

So far I’ve restricted this list to books I haven’t read yet, but I can’t miss up on the opportunity to force Ciara Smyth’s books down your necks because I loved them and think they’re both well worth the read!

The Falling in Love Montage was one of my favourites from last year. It follows a girl Saoirse whose mother was diagnose with early onset dementia, and since then she’s vowed not to fall in love. Then she meets Ruby, a die hard romantic with a love of rom-coms. Ruby convinces Saoirse that there’s no harm in a summer fling where they can play out all the cheesy love-montage moments, and skip the painful parts of a love story.

Not My Problem is the newest release and while I didn’t love it as much, I still thought it was great! It follows a girl called Aideen who ignores her own problems by unintentionally getting a reputation as being able to fix everyone else’s problems. All of this starts with her pushing her arch-nemesis down the stairs and the books continues to be full of laughs from then on!

If you haven’t read these yet, I seriously can’t recommend them enough!!

And so there we go! A bunch of Sapphic romances that have grabbed my attention recently. If anyone has any reccomendations, or has read any of the books mentioned I’d love to know what you thought.

Thanks for reading :))
