Here are Dana’s top sapphic reads of 2023:
1. Scatter by Molly J. Bragg
I love superhero fiction and this is one of the best mixing in a cool time travel plot and dragons.
2. Can’t Spell Treason without Tea by Rebecca Thorne
This is my favorite of all the cozy fantasies I read this year. The world’s most powerful sorceress and a palace guard to an evil queen run away together and open a tea shop.
3. Love or Hate by Rita Potter
I loved this book because I am a Christian and I could see myself as the Christian who falls in love with her opposite, an out progressive lesbian. There is some magic body switching going on between the two which brings them closer to understanding each other. It’s a timely book for today’s divided world.
4. In the Blood of the Greeks by Mary D. Brooks
This is the first book of a series I love about two young women meeting during World War II and their life together after the war. They had to go to great lengths to hide their relationship because it was not acceptable at all in that time period.
5. Talk Nerdy to Me by C. A. Beymer
I am a nerd and this is a romance taking place between a fan and an actress of a hit TV show at a science fiction convention. I loved all the fandom references.
