This month I participated in #FFFeb2021, a month long reading challenge hosted by Imi & Ellie. The purpose of #FFFeb2021 is to read and celebrate sapphic books, the challenge included a bingo card, reading prompts and a bookstagram photo challenge to keep us all busy! You can find all the details about the challenge over on Beyond A Bookshelf. If you’re ever in need of f/f recs I highly recommend checking out the amazing F/F Masterlist that Imi & Ellie have worked tirelessly to create.
I set myself a very ambitious TBR of eighteen books, however I did note that this was to give me, a very prolific mood reader, options for each prompt! But.. I did switch out a couple of the choices for a completely different book! Below is my wrap up of all the books I did manage to read, listed under the prompt they fulfilled. If a book is stroked through, it was on my original TBR but I haven’t managed to read it yet.
An F/F contemporary, historical and/or romance:
> Little & Lion by Brandy Colbert
Melt my Heart by Bethany Rutter
An F/F book by a 2020 or 2021 debut author:
Queen of Coin and Whispers by Helen Corcoran
The Truth about Keeping Secrets by Savannah Brown
> Love is for Losers by Wibke Brueggemann
An F/F book featuring your favourite trope:
> Crier’s War by Nina Varela
I Kissed Alice by Anna Birch
An F/F audiobook, graphic novel or multi-media story:
> Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me by Mariko Tamaki (graphic novel)
> We Used to be Friends by Amy Spalding (audiobook)
An F/F backlist book:
> The Colour Purple by Alice Walker
Everything Leads to You by Nina Lacour
A re-read of a book you loved:
The Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdar
> The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
> Princess Princess Ever After by Katie O’Neill
An F/F sci-fi or fantasy:
> The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon (current read)
These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling
> Dangerous Remedy by Kat Dunn
A sapphic own voices book:
> You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson
> The Girls I’ve Been by Tess Sharpe
An F/F recommendation from a friend (Anniek):
> Ivy Aberdeen’s Letter to the World by Ashley Herring Blake
Drum Roll, Please by Lisa Jenn Bigelow
So in total I managed to read thirteen sapphic books this month, which I am very pleased about! Eighteen was a bit of a stretch alongside my other commitments, so I’m not surprised that this wasn’t possible. Attempting to read Priory alongside all these other books also proved to be a bit too challenging, so I’ll be carrying on with Priory into the month/s ahead. I also have an audiobook loan from the library of Queen of Coin and Whispers due to be available in a couple of weeks so this debut is very much still on my TBR!
