Here are S. Y. Thompson’s top sapphic reads of 2023:

1. Dark Haven by Brey Willows

The most original and best written vampire novel I’ve read.

2. Consecrated Ground by Virginia Black

A meld of vampires and witches. A ear witch returns home after the death of her father. She doesn’t plan to stay, but plans change when an upstart vampire and his brood target the town for annihilation.

3. Midlife is The Cat’s Meow by Miranda MacLeod & TB Markinson

I love this lighthearted witchy tale of ghosts, murder and flashbacks to the roaring 20s.

4. Daughter of the Light by Silvia Shaw

The 3rd in the series, but every bit as complex as the first. A woman travels through a portal into a world of magic. Lots of changeling creatures, and dark conspiracies. Everything is connected. This is one you need to pay attention to.

5. Winter’s Moon by Lise MacTague

Werewolves, but a unique spin. A small town in the woods. An unlikely hero that doesn’t see her own worth as Alpha.
