Welcome to week 16 of the 2023 IHS Sapphic Reading Challenge, where we have so many sapphic books to share!
67 readers have reached Garnet level so far this year by reading 15 books. Well done! We’ve also had 53 readers reach Topaz level, which is 25 books, 33 readers have reached Sapphire level with 50 books, 4 readers have reached Amethyst level with 100 books, and 2 amazing readers have reached Emerald level with 200 books in 100 categories!
An important note about the Christmas in July category: you do not need to read your Christmas book in July! That is when we will be featuring the category, but if you are waiting on that one, wait no more! You may read your Christmas book in any month you’d like.
Remember, if you are participating in the reading challenge, you only need 15 books in 15 categories to reach the first level. With 100 categories and over 2,000 book recommendations coming your way this year, our aim is to make it as easy as possible to reach your reading goal!
Have you reached a new level? Tell us about it here and enter the end-of-year drawings while you’re at it. Remember, this year you will be entered into the drawings for every level you complete, not just the highest.
Now for the books!
The first section contains sapphic Forced Proximity / Stranded Together books of all genres. 12 are on sale.
The second section is dedicated to sapphic Speculative Fiction stories. 1 of those is on sale.
There are some fab options in both sections, including several top names in lesfic such as Jae, Cindy Rizzo, Lily Seabrooke, Carolyn Elizabeth, Cara Malone, Nita Round, and so many others. You’ll find plenty of steamy sapphic romance books, wlw suspense, queer paranormal, and more with women loving women characters. If you get lost between the two lists, just look for the rainbow hearts at the start of each new section.
13 of the books are on sale, too, so scoop up some fantastic reads at bargain prices.
Remember, the sale ends Friday, April 28th.
Before you buy any books on Amazon, please ensure the sale price matches your expectation. (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.
