sapphic sports romance

Sapphic sports romance (Sapphic Book Bingo #4)

This week’s Sapphic Book Bingo post features sapphic sports romances. 

A sports romance is a book with a main character who’s an athlete or otherwise involved in a sport, e.g., a coach, physical therapist, etc.

In order for the book to count for this category, the sports setting needs to be essential to the book, not just be mentioned in passing a couple of times. 

It can be any sport, from the more well known, e.g., soccer, baseball, tennis, etc., to lesser known ones such as curling, lacrosse, or ultimate frisbee.

This week’s Sapphic Book Bingo post features the “award-winning sapphic book” category. Read a sapphic book that won a literary award. It doesn’t matter which award the book won, when, or in which category. It could be an award for LGBT+ literature or a mainstream award. 

For awards celebrating LGBTQ books, check out the Golden Crown Literary Society Award (affectionately called “Goldie”), the Lambda Literary Award (“Lammy”), or the Rainbow Awards.

Character is a business owner (Sapphic Reading Challenge #44)

This week’s Sapphic Reading Challenge features sapphic books in which the main character is a business owner.

The character can be the CEO of a big, successful company, or she can own a small business without any employees.

The business she owns could be a major part of the plot, so we see the character at work a lot, or it can play only a minor role.
