On my TBR – Novels with f/f romances

headpict_ff.PNG

Look, I don’t usually do resolutions. I don’t even do TBRs anymore because for some reason I never manage to follow them. However, last year I realized that I almost never read stories with f/f romances, and… well, it made me feel uncomfortable, which is great, if you’re asking me. Yes, it’s great, because I know that my discomfort comes from the realization that I have internalized biases – and I want to crush them. Hard. Because how shitty would I be if I ignored the fact that my inner self acted as if men’s stories were more interesting?

I won’t hide from the fact that as far as I’m concerned, my f/f versus m/m ratio makes a crappy human being out of me (because of course, I’ve read way more m/m than f/f). God, I want to slap myself sometimes, but instead of whining and looking for ways to find excuses (I have none), I prefer doing something about it. So here we go : thanks to all my wonderful friends on twitter, I put together a list of novels with f/f pairings to add to my TBR, and I cannot wait to read them all.

And because I love challenging myself (I’m a teacher, after all), I aim to read at least 20 of them before July 15th.

  1. aaaaah Alienor I’m so happy!! The Abyss Surrounds Us is great if you like enemies-to-lovers and bed sharing and really funny banter – I think it’d be your thing. A&B is great if you like hilarity and I think you would also love it. How to Make a Wish is great for a really emotive contemporary, which I know you haven’t been reading as much lately, but is so worth the read if not!

  2. Thank youuuuu ❤️ Wow when you describe it like that, The Abyss Surrounds Us DOES look like 100% in my alley, omg 😍 I already own it so it will probably be one of my first choices 😃 I do love emotive contemporaries as well when I’m in the mood for them (when I’m in a good place?). And I read and really enjoyed the first novel of Mechanical Hearts – I thought it was over the top but in a good way, you know? So funny and cute. Anyway thank you so much for your advices 💕

  3. Great list! Of the many books on here, I think there’s only 8 that I’ve even seen reviewed/promoted. You make a good point about the m/m vs. f/f balance. I think all of the books I’ve read have mainly been from a m/m perspective, which is interesting because that definitely wasn’t a conscious choice on my part. I wonder how the publishing stats break down. The cover for A&B is adorable.

  4. Don’t worry, Alienor, I was the same!! It took me a while to realise I was reading way more m/m compared to f/f – and I hadn’t even noticed until discussions were brought up on twitter about how everyone prioritises m/m over f/f. I’ve started reading way more f/f now, and I’ve found a few favourites. I love the list you’ve created: I’ve seen a few books I loved and some more I haven’t heard of! You’ll love The Love Song of Sawyer Bell, Queens of Geek, Knit One Girl Two and It’s Not Like It’s a Secret.

    Can I recommend one more? The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo!! Not many people realise this is an f/f novel, but it is and it’s the most beautiful book I’ve read in a long, long time. The book really queer-baits, it’s amazing 😂 If you get the chance, give this incredible book a chance. You’ll love it so much!!!
    Great post!

  5. Yessss I’m so happy you want to read more! I’ve barely started getting more into f/f myself and honestly? I don’t think I ever wanna stop now. I have read a few of the books you linked up and even more are on my TBR, but there’s also a lot of stuff I had never seen around or that I didn’t know was f/f! I shall keep this post as a f/f guideline ❤

    • Awww your comment made my day ♥ Thank you ! I don’t know why I never read many f/f??? I mean I did read some but so few compared from m/f and even m/m. When I realized that I felt so shitty honestly. Anyway I can’t wait to read them all now, and I’ll look at your reads as well!
