Your favorite authors' favorite sapphic books of 2022

At the end of each month, I always ask the readers in my Facebook group what their favorite sapphic book of the month was. As we are approaching the end of the year, I was curious about what my fellow authors’ favorite sapphic reads of 2022 were, so I asked some of the most popular authors for their top 3 sapphic books they read in 2022. It could be 2022 releases or previously published books they read or re-read this year.

To help guide you toward any new sapphic books you might have missed this year, I also had each author list their newest release.

  11. Thank you to all the sapphic authors. You expand and describe wlw universe. 2022 was chock-a-block full of fantastic reads for me.
    Jae- Just a Touch Away:I fell in love with cuddles. Just Physical: disability conquered by love.
    Conflict of Interest: bone chilling realism of rape
    and climbing back to safety and letting love back in
    Lee Winter- Brutal/Awkward Truth: cheers to the women with sweet fire who melt the world’s complicated ice queens
    E.J. Noyes- Ask, Tell/Ask me Again/If the Shoe Fits/If I don’t Ask: I didn’t understand the experience of being trapped by the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy until these books, these are powerfully written
