For this week’s Sapphic Book Bingo, read a sapphic book in which one of the main characters inherits something within the first three chapters of the book and the inheritance plays an important role in the book.
The inheritance could be money, a house or property, a company, or any other material possession. If you want to get creative, you could also read a book in which the character inherits a title.
Welcome to the first Book Unicorn post of the Sapphic Book Bingo! The Book Unicorn categories of the Sapphic Book Bingo represent books with a harder-to-find theme, and the category we’re starting with is a true unicorn: ice queen characters who are younger than their love interest!
In sapphic romance, you’ll find a lot of books that combine an ice queen character with an age gap romance, but usually, it’s the ice queen who is older.
Since ice queens are in a position of power and often at the very top of the food chain in their profession, it takes them a while to get there. That means ice queens are often in their late thirties or forties or fifties. Of course, they could still fall in love with a woman who’s older, but most authors seem to prefer pairing their ice queens with younger love interests.

In this post, you’ll find the rules, the bingo cards, and the categories for the Sapphic Book Bingo 2023.
This week’s Sapphic Book Bingo category features sapphic romantic comedies, which are also called “romcom”—light-hearted, humorous romance novels that are guaranteed to make you laugh.
Often, the line between a romcom and a romance novel with hilarious moments is a bit blurry, so I’m not going to be very strict about this category. If it feels like a romcom to you, go ahead and count it for this category.
For this month’s Book Unicorn, read a sapphic book that is told from more than two points of view. That could mean that not just the two main characters, but also at least one supporting character gets their own perspective in the book. Books with more than two POVs are a Book Unicorn because most sapphic books, especially sapphic romances, are told from the points of view of the two main characters or, sometimes, just from the perspective of one protagonist. 15 recommended sapphic books with more than two points of view: Here are my book recommendations for the …
