Get ready to add books to your TBR pile!

As the end of the year draws near, we have one question we want to ask book lovers the world over. What were your top 5 sapphic reads of 2023?

Luckily our readers like to share! We look forward to passing along these recommendations to you daily into the new year.

Here are Nicole’s top sapphic reads of 2023:

1. Aurora’s Angel by Emily Noon

It is a beautiful epic love story set in a fantasy world. There is too much to say in such a small space. It has become my favorite book of all time.

2. The Blood-Born Dragon by JC Rycroft

Kick-ass MC with a heart of gold and magical dragon. Adventure, f/f spice, and did I mention dragons?!

3. Unleashed by Alli Temple

Final installation of the Pirate and Her Princess Trilogy. Fantastic finale! More adventures for our lady loves, will they save the day?

4. Giovanna by Victoria Arrow

It was… very educational. lol Spice off the charts, dark and gritty Italian mafia politics, and justice served!

5. Stars Collide by Rachel Lacey

This sweet and sexy toaster oven novel has a slow burn, low angst, decent mid-level spice with a satisfyingly happy ending. I consider it a comfort read.

Meet Nicole Writes

I am an avid reader of sapphic fiction. I have been doing a bit more reviewing lately and most of those are posted to Goodreads. I do have a blog where I share some reviews and some of my artistic ventures. I had a really good reading year so choosing only 5 was hard!
