Here are Carol Anne Douglas’s top sapphic reads of 2023:

1. Integrity by E.J. Noyes

It was a very good political adventure story.

2. Extended Capacity by Elena Graf

It is a gripping novel about a school shooting. It continues the author’s well-developed Hobbs series.

3. Darkness Unknown by KC Luck

The novel continues Luck’s well-conceived Darkness Series about a world in which there is no electricity because of strange solar phenomena.

4. Once in Berlin by Jo Havens

A fine novel set in Berlin in the beginning of the Nazi era. One of the characters is a very well portrayed scientific genius.

5. Miserere by Caren Werlinger

I was moved by this story’s movement between two eras, both very well developed. She handles questions of race sensitively.
