sapphic enemies-to-lovers romances

Sapphic enemies-to-lovers romances (Sapphic Book Bingo 2023 #11)

This week’s Sapphic Book Bingo category features sapphic enemies-to-lovers romances, one of the most popular romance tropes! 

In an enemies-to-lovers romance, the two main characters start out hating or at least strongly disliking each other at the beginning of the book, but then end up falling in love. Their initial dislike could be due to a family feud, professional rivalry, or just clashing personalities. Whatever the cause, it’s always fun to watch sparks fly and accompany them on the journey from hate to love.

Sapphic book set in a country or state you haven’t visited (Sapphic Book Bingo 2023 #9)

This week’s Sapphic Book Bingo post is a big one, with a long list of book recommendations. It features sapphic books that are set in a country or a US state you haven’t visited yet. 

One of the greatest things about reading is that it transports us to new, faraway places. It enables us to travel the world without leaving the comfort of our homes. For this category, I invite you to travel to a place you haven’t experienced before.

both main characters have brown eyes

Both main characters have brown eyes (Book Unicorn #4)

For this week’s Sapphic Book Bingo category, read a sapphic book in which both main character have brown eyes.

In real life, brown is the most common eye color. 70-80% of the world’s population have brown eyes. It’s not rare to find characters with brown eyes, but usually, only one of the main characters has brown eyes, while authors will often give the other protagonist a different eye color to set the two characters apart and not make them look too similar. That’s why a sapphic book with two main characters who have brown eyes is pretty rare—at least if both main characters are white. 

In books in which both main characters are people of color, this isn’t a Unicorn category at all. But then again, women of color are still very underrepresented in sapphic fiction.
