F/F Recommendations 🌈💕

Hello.

Today I come to you with a list of really great books that feature prominent F/F characters and romances. I’m sure you’ve probably heard about all of these books already but I’m gonna talk about them anyways because I love them your honour!



A Lesson in Vengeance by Victoria Lee – Dark Academia lesbians who are investigating their schools history of witchcraft and murder. Make sure you have a cup of tea when you read this one.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenksins Reid – Evelyn and Celia are the definition of soulmates.

Afterlove by Tanya Byrne – That awkward moment when your girlfriend dies and turns into a Grim Reaper. In all honesty though this book made me cry.

Book Review: The Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdar

Publication Date: May 12th 2020

When Nishat comes out to her parents, they say she can be anyone she wants—as long as she isn’t herself. Because Muslim girls aren’t lesbians. Nishat doesn’t want to hide who she is, but she also doesn’t want to lose her relationship with her family. And her life only gets harder once a childhood friend walks back into her life.

Flávia is beautiful and charismatic and Nishat falls for her instantly. But when a school competition invites students to create their own businesses, both Flávia and Nishat choose to do henna, even though Flávia is appropriating Nishat’s culture. Amidst sabotage and school stress, their lives get more tangled—but Nishat can’t quite get rid of her crush on Flávia, and realizes there might be more to her than she realized.

Please keep giving me all the f/f romances 💕

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’s John Tucker Must Die 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!

ARC Review: Yesterday is History by Kosoko Jackson

*ARC courtesy of NetGalley*

Publication Date: February 2nd 2021


Weeks ago, Andre Cobb received a much-needed liver transplant.

He’s ready for his life to finally begin, until one night, when he passes out and wakes up somewhere totally unexpected…in 1969, where he connects with a magnetic boy named Michael.

And then, just as suddenly as he arrived, he slips back to present-day Boston, where the family of his donor is waiting to explain that his new liver came with a side effect—the ability to time travel. And they’ve tasked their youngest son, Blake, with teaching Andre how to use his unexpected new gift. Read More.

Book Review: The Falling in Love Montage by Ciara Smyth.

48118801

Publication Date: June 9th 2020


Saoirse doesn’t believe in love at first sight or happy endings. If they were real, her mother would still be able to remember her name and not in a care home with early onset dementia. A condition that Saoirse may one day turn out to have inherited. So she’s not looking for a relationship. She doesn’t see the point in igniting any romantic sparks if she’s bound to burn out.

But after a chance encounter at an end-of-term house party, Saoirse is about to break her own rules. For a girl with one blue freckle, an irresistible sense of mischief, and a passion for rom-coms. Read More.

July Wrap Up!

Howdy and happy August!!

This is usually the part where I say “omg how is it August already?” or “wow time sure does fly when the world is on fireee” but I don’t have time for that because I read fifteen books in July! Fifteen!!!! I have never read this many books in one month in my life.

wowza

I’m shocked, shooketh and downright gobsmacked. 

I was truly on a roll this month when it came to reading and I loved it but now it’s time to wrap all these bad boys up!black-and-white-flowers-tumblr-transparent-12 Continue reading “July Wrap Up!”

Blog, book haul

Another Kindle haul because I can’t stop myself.

Howdy fellow booknerds 🙂

I think it’s about time someone sits me down and gives me an intervention because I just can’t help myself. I see E-books for cheap and I gotta buy ’em. I just gotta.

See this is one of the many reasons I don’t trust myself with a proper bank account yet no matter how much my dad tries to make me get one.

In the past … I don’t even know how long, since my last Kindle Haul I suppose, I have acquired 9 new E-Books and I’m going to talk all about those today 🙂


The Last True Poets of The Sea by Julia Drake.

The Last True Poets of The Sea was a simple case of “ooo pretty cover” and “ooo lastLGBT+ romance” then the next thing I knew I’d bought it and I was regretting my lack of impulse control.

This book follows a girl called Violet. All her life she’s been told her family are very lucky, hence why her great-great grandmother survived a shipwreck and founded the town of Lyric where Violet and her brother Sam return to every summer. When Sam tries to take his own life Violet is shipped back of to Lyric. While she’s there she’s determined to make amends.

Although I’ve barely heard anything about this book prior to buying it, all the reviews I’ve seen are super positive and I’m really looking forward to this.

Anticipated Releases of 2020 // July- August- September

Hello and welcome to my blog!!

It’s that time again where I talk all about upcoming releases I would sell my soul for … even though I’ve barely read any of the books released so far in 2020 that I said I really wanted to read. Make that make sense.

To be honest the next three months are golden, in my eyes, for book releases. September, especially, is going to be a good month which is really annoying because of course all the books I want to read come out the same time I’m back in school!

Out of the books mentioned in my 2 previous “Anticipated 2020 releases” I have read a grand total of … *drum roll please* … 3 books! (Out of 18. One of which I had an ARC of and read at the end of 2019). God help me.

January-February-March // April-May-June


July

Loveless by Alice Oseman

42115981._SY475_By the time I’m writing this I’m pretty sure this book has already been released which is exciting.

Loveless follows a girl called Georgia as she starts university in a whole new town as she comes to terms and learns about being aromatic and asexual.

I’m hopefully starting university next year so I think this is going to be a book I can really connect to and relate to in so many ways.

I also really want to like an Oseman book as I wasn’t a huge fan of the last book I read from her.

Publication Date: July 9th

ARC Review: Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall

*ARC courtesy of Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

bm

Publication Date: July 7th


Luc O’Donnell is tangentially–and reluctantly–famous. Now that his dad’s making a comeback, Luc’s back in the public eye, and one compromising photo is enough to ruin everything.

To clean up his image, Luc has to find a nice, normal relationship…and Oliver Blackwood is as nice and normal as they come. Unfortunately apart from being gay, single, and really, really in need of a date for a big event, Luc and Oliver have nothing in common. So they strike a deal to be publicity-friendly (fake) boyfriends until the dust has settled. Then they can go their separate ways and pretend it never happened.

But the thing about fake-dating is that it can feel a lot like real-dating. And that’s when you get used to someone. Start falling for them. Don’t ever want to let them go. Read More.
