Here are Lucy’s top sapphic reads of 2023:

1. The Headmistress by Milena McKay

The best romance I have ever read, with ice queen, age gap and a cool island private school, full of drama, and the adorable cat.

2. The Brutal Truth by Lee Winter

This book makes Me Too movement more relatable, I love Lee Winter’s masterful storytelling and the office romance is hot.

3. Perfect Rhythm by Jae

The most romantic rooftop kiss, and this book showed us there are so many different types in LGBTQIA. Love comes with different ways of expression.

4. Truth and Measure by Roslyn Sinclair

I was deeply moved by the care and love between two strong willed, accomplished women.

5. Those Who Wait by Haley Cass

Love the toaster oven romance with high profile political drama.

Since my first WLW book three years ago, I am now a big fan of lesbian romance books and I love reading a well written love story with a happy ending.
