Here are Emily’s top sapphic reads of 2023:
1. On the Same Page by Haley Cass
A great slow burn friends to lovers with fantastic characters.
2. In the Roses of Pieria by Anna Burke
A banger of a sapphic dark academia vampire book.
3. Ink Blood Sister Scribe by Emma Törzs
A fantasy book about estranged sisters, familial connections, a really cool magical system centered around books, with a queer mc and a small sapphic subplot.
4. The Once and Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow
Not out this year, but I FINALLY read this fantastic historical fiction witchy book about three estranged sisters with one of them having a sapphic relationship. (honorable mention to her release from this year, Starling House, great gothic story with surprise lesbians for a hot min).
5. The Fiancée Farce by Alexandria Bellefleur
A really fun fake romance book with characters that are really easy to root for.
