SapphFic Mischief Saturday Morning Graphic
It’s starting to feel like spring around IHS Headquarters!

Saturdays are when we round up all the sapphic book news from the previous week into one convenient location. Think of it as your personal queer reading directory! After all, we know the weekend is when so many of us are able to unwind for a minute and want to get lost in a good wlw book. What could be better?

It’s the weekend, so naturally it’s forecasted to rain for the next forty-eight hours. We’re hopeful this will lead to fantastic May flowers. At least rainy weather means it’s a good time to curl up on the couch with a cup of tea and a good book.

If you’re looking for something to read this weekend, below you’ll find 16 books on sale. Need more choices? Check out the BookFinder, which has more than 3,500 books for you to choose from, ranging from steamy sapphic romance books, ice queen wlw romances, lesfic audiobooks, queer superheroes, best friends to lovers lesbian romances and so much more!

Don’t see your favorite women-loving-women book in the I Heart SapphFic database? Let us know by filling out this form. We’ll take it from there!

What a year it’s been!

It was exactly a year ago that TB and Miranda reached out to the design team at Waxcreative to discuss building a new website, one that would include a fully searchable database of sapphic books.

Miranda dug into the stats and we’re very happy with how things have gone. Check them out and find out the top 10 books readers have purchased so far in 2023.

Without further ado, let’s get to all the sapphic book news from this past week!

Meet Lucretia (Louie) Mott, orange tabby

This is Louie’s author photo, and the only way you’re likely to ever see her. She is terrified of people except the ones she lives with. I adopted her from the Humane Society when she was 3 months old, on January 2, 2021. Submitted by Sandra de Helen, an author.

Where the heck was TB?

TB loves exploring places near and far, so we’ve created a weekly game where TB goes on an adventure, snaps some photos, and then lets you guess her location.

To answer last week’s mystery, 33% of you were right. Miranda & I visited the Charter Street Cemetery in Salem, Massachusetts. Also, 34% of you guessed I kept saying how unfair it was that none of the victims of the Salem Witch Trials were buried in the cemetery. I did. Not only was it a hideous time in US history, but not providing proper burials makes it even more heinous. People can be terrible sometimes.

We visited another place in Salem and for this leg of the trip we brought along The Once and Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow.

Here are some facts about the home.

1. It was the home of Judge Jonathan Corwin (1640–1718), which is located at 310 Essex Street in Salem, Massachusetts.

2. It’s the only building still standing that has direct ties to the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. Corwin was a presiding judge in the trials.

3. The home is an example of 17th-century New England architecture, but historians don’t know the year it was built.

4. In the 1940s, the home had to be moved 35 feet due to the street being widened.

5. It was featured in season 4 of Ghost Adventures.

Below are some photos of the cemetery and The Once and Future Witches.

Time to vote on the name of this home in Salem!

Polls are open until May 4 and the answer will be revealed on Saturday, May 6.

This poll is no longer accepting votes

Where in the Heck are TB & Miranda?

Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend!

Miranda & TB
