Sapphic Book Bingo 2023

Happy New Year and welcome to the Sapphic Book Bingo 2023!

Since my previous reading challenges (the Sapphic Book Bingo 2022, the Sapphic Reading Challenge in 2021, the F/F Fiction Crossword Challenge in 2020, and the Lesbian Book Bingo in 2018) were so popular with readers, I decided to host a new reading challenge in 2023. I hope it will keep you reading all year and help you find new favorite books and authors!

The Sapphic Book Bingo is a fun, year-long reading challenge for readers of sapphic fiction. It runs from January 1 to December 31, 2023.

In this post, you’ll find the rules, the bingo cards, and the categories for the Sapphic Book Bingo 2023.

sapphic book with a meet-cute

Sapphic books with a meet-cute (Sapphic Book Bingo #19)

For this week’s Sapphic Book Bingo category, read a sapphic book with a meet-cute. A “meet-cute” is a first meeting between the two main characters that is cute, hilarious, or unusual in some way. Often, it’s a misunderstanding or an awkward situation, e.g., one character spills coffee on the other.

As a surprise for you, I put together an anthology full of “meet-cute” scenes from 45 popular authors of sapphic fiction. You can download “Meet-Cute” as a free ebook.

sapphic book with a POC character

Sapphic book with a POC character (Sapphic Book Bingo #15)

This week’s category of the Sapphic Book Bingo focuses on sapphic books with a main character who is a person of color. The book needs to be written by an author of color. 

Of course, I encourage you to read diverse books, including books by authors whose race, ethnicity, or culture is different from your own, for ALL categories of the Sapphic Book Bingo, not just for today’s category. You’ll find books with POC characters in all my recommended reading lists for the Sapphic Book Bingo, but this category is all about them.
