character with a disability or mental illness

Character with a disability or mental illness (Sapphic Reading Challenge #7)

Category #7 of the Sapphic Reading Challenge features another group of people that is definitely underrepresented in WLW & lesbian fiction: characters who have a disability.

It can be a book about a character with a physical disability, a chronic illness, or a mental disorder. When you pick the book you’re going to read, don’t forget that some disabilities are invisible or less apparent, for example, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, migraines, and mental illnesses.

Character with an everyday job (Sapphic Reading Challenge #2)

It’s time for the second category of the Sapphic Reading Challenge. This one features sapphic books with main characters who have an everyday job.

As you probably know, a lot of books—especially in WLW and lesbian romance—feature characters who are actresses, famous musicians, surgeons, or CEOs of big companies. That’s why I’d like to spotlight protagonists who don’t have glamorous jobs. Instead, they make a living as a waitress, cashier, mechanic, massage therapist, or work in another everyday job.

12 WLW & Lesbian Phone or Online Romance Novels

Which is a little strange, since so many of us find love—or great friends—online, right? So I thought I’d put together a list of 12 f/f romances that start out on the Internet or via the phone. Make sure you scroll all the way down for a free bonus story.   Wrong Number, Right Woman by Jae Flirting has …
