Sapphic Coming Out Stories (IHS Reading Challenge #40)

Welcome to week 40 of the 2022 IHS Sapphic Reading Challenge!

Tomorrow marks Coming Out Day, which was founded in 1988 as a way to raise awareness of the LGBTQ+ community and the movement for LGBTQ+ civil rights that was heating up at the time. Being open with friends, family, and community about sexuality and gender identity can be both scary and empowering, and it’s often an important part of sapphic stories. Today, we’re kicking off Coming Out Week with some fabulous books that explore this theme.

Some of the books are on sale, too, so scoop up some fantastic reads at bargain prices.

Remember, the sale ends Friday, October 14.

Before you buy any books on Amazon, please ensure the sale price matches. (Some international prices may vary.) We do our best to double check prices ahead of time but sometimes changes can happen that are out of our control.

Before we go, we want to remind you of two ways you can interact with other readers to enhance your experience during the challenge this year.

First, you can join the I Heart SapphFic Facebook reader group. Every Monday we will announce the category for the week, and every Wednesday you will have the opportunity to post what book you are reading and be entered into the monthly drawing for a $25 Amazon gift card. (For those who are not on Facebook and still want to enter, you can email your reading selection to [email protected]).

Second, we have created a Goodreads group where readers can discuss books, swap recommendations, and generally have a good time.

Happy reading!
