I love comics and graphic novels, but I don’t really feel like as a queer woman, I belong. In the last two years I have found that there is a place for me in this wonderful, hopeful and colorful world. Of course, there are too many identities missing, too many stories untold. But there are also many amazing and important graphic novels and comics that deserve all the support.
So here there are my two cents, four sapphic graphic novels that I loved. And please, feel free to leave me your recommendations! Continuar lendo
Enter to win an Ebook of Rulebreaker by Cathy Pegau!
“Liv Braxton’s Felon Rule #1: Don’t get emotionally involved.
Smash-and-grab thieving doesn’t lend itself to getting chummy with the victims, and Liv hasn’t met anyone on the mining colony of Nevarro worth knowing, anyway. So it’s easy to follow her Rules.
Until her ex, Tonio, shows up with an invitation to join him on the job of a lifetime.
Until Zia Talbot, the woman she’s supposed to deceive, turns Liv’s expectations upside down in a way no woman ever has.
Until corporate secrets turn deadly.
But to make things work with Zia, Liv has to do more than break her Rules, and the stakes are higher than just a broken heart.”

Some people over on Twitter have decided to make a readathon for femslash in December and I couldn’t be more excited for that! If you want to participate, this is happening on December 14-28. Here you can find more details, and follow them on twitter.
The organizers also came up with a Bingo chart to help you on finding more books and I bring here a list of recommendations. You can see that most of these books fit at least two or three categories so you can build your own bingo quite easily.
Sometimes, all you need is a quick and easy read with a mostly fluffy romance where the characters actually communicate and understand each other. So I was a bit alarmed when I sat down to look through my Goodreads femslash bookshelf with almost 100 books just to find very few books that actually fit this description! I’m a believer that we need all kind of queer stories. From the lightest fluff to the deepest angst. But when we keep finding so much angst in most of our reads, what does this say? What I mean is, I wish it was as easy to find cheesy romcoms in femslash as it is with m/f couples.
But I did find a few that I’d like to recommend here today. Some of them are books that made me feel happy and others are recommendations from Twitter! I hope you find something that makes your day a little bit better. And don’t hesitate to leave more recs in the comments section! I’d love to add even more to my TBR list.
