sapphic books out of your reading comfort zone

Sapphic book that is out of your comfort zone (Sapphic Book Bingo #10)

For this week’s Sapphic Book Bingo category, read a sapphic book that is a bit—or a lot—out of your reading comfort zone.

It can be a genre or subgenre you don’t usually read, a trope or topic you normally avoid, or a format you don’t usually read. If you stick to reading novels most of the time, you could try a short story, a biography/memoir, poetry, nonfiction, or a graphic novel. If you normally read ebooks, you could read a paperback or try an audiobook. If you mostly read contemporary romances, you could try a historical romance, a paranormal romance, a mystery, or book of another genre. 

If there’s a certain point of view that you usually avoid, you could search out a book written from that point of view for this category–that’s what I might be doing. 

Below, I’ll give you some resources and suggestions.
