Here are Suzi’s top sapphic reads of 2023:

1. Olivia’s Pirate by Maggie McIntyre

Age gap romance, adventure, a bit of drama, and an abundance of humor are the ingredients that make this book the amazing piece of art that it is.

Maggie McIntyre Crawford has definitely hit gold with this book and I recommend it to anyone interested in age gap wlw romance, horses, books, Ireland, witty humor, and happy ever afters.

2. When The Past Finds You by Adrian J. Smith

From a ragged past into a beautiful future. People who have trouble communicating are led to believe that the others hate them even if the driving force all along has been a more than powerful early teenage crush.

3. Reality In Check by Emily Banting

The storyline is brilliant, characters amazing, and the humor is phenomenal.

Dreams do come true, in real life as well as in fiction.

4. Study You by Melissa Tereze

This amazing quote is from the book: “You could be gone tomorrow. Any of us could. At least know that when the time comes, you’ve had so much fun that your face hurts from smiling.”

5. The Wisdom Of Bug by Alyson Root

A lovely story about two career-driven people who find themselves falling for each other unexpectedly.

A bunch of shelter dogs help in the process, especially the sweet and adorable little Bug.

I try to write, too, but I mostly enjoy reading contemporary lesbian age-gappy romance.
