This week’s category of the Sapphic Reading Challenge is a little different from the others. Instead of reading a book from a list I put together, I want you to read a WLW or lesbian book that was recommended to you by a friend. (And we’ll interpret the term “friend” very loosely here—any acquaintances you made on social media count as a friend as far as this category is concerned!)
So, if you have friends who are also avid readers of WLW & lesbian fiction, go ask one of them for a recommendation. If none of your friends (online or offline) read books about women-loving women, feel free to let us know what kind of books you enjoy and ask for a recommendation in the comments of this blog post or drop by my Facebook group for readers and ask for a book recommendation there.

If someone in a group posts a recommendation (unsolicited or otherwise), does that count too?
Sure, why not?
I need a book to read recommendation
Here are a few you might enjoy:
– If you like sports romances: Thrust by Rachel Spangler was just published. It’s about fencing: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0977JMHMM/
– House of Agnes by Fiona Zedde is a lesbian romance with intrigue and sizzle. https://www.ylva-publishing.com/product/house-of-agnes-by-fiona-zedde/
– Or if you want something to make you laugh, how about Jericho by Ann McMan: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0779HL8TD/
Thanks for the recommendations. I’ve read two of Rachel Spangler’s books and especially enjoyed Fire and Ice, probably because I live in a state where we have curling. Fiona Zedde is an author I plan to try for future challenges , but I’d love a good laugh today, so I’ll read Jericho. I appreciate the suggestions.
It’s one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy it!
A friend recommended Becky Bohan’s novel, A Light on Altered Ground to me. I liked it and will pass the recommendation forward.
A few recommendations:
“Thrust” by Rachel Spangler I just finished it tonight and WOW is it good.
For something really different, “for the price of seven good cows” by coldmackerel is a wonderful Wynonna Earp fanfic (WaHaught) You should not have trouble finding it on archiveofourown.org
And for a Xena Uber fanfic read “Lucifer Rising” by Susan Bowers http://www.ausxip.com/fanfiction/l/lucifer.html
“Lucifer Rising” is a classic! I remember reading it many years ago. And I just bought “Thrust.”
I recommend Grass Widow, by Nanci Little.
It’s historical fiction set in Kansas, 1870.
It is fantastic!
I recommend Requiem for Immortals by Lee Winter. It is one of the best books that I have ever read.
I agree! It’s a unique and superbly written book!
