F/F Books turned into Movies and TV Shows

I’ve been interested in doing a post about F/F books who were adapted into movies or TV shows for a while now and this research proved to be harder than I thought. The only useful article I found was a post by Autostraddle from two years ago. But mostly, my own post was prompted by the fact that we have four new adaptations coming out in 2018 and I suddenly felt excited about it! So I thought I’d make this list with all links included to help the avid readers who like to watch and read both formats of stories.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have the chance to watch all of these and can’t tell you which ones end happily or not. But I hope to add most of them to my watch list soon. I’m leaving them in the order of which movie came out first so you can take a look at the history of F/F adaptations in these last years.

What about you? Leave in the comments if you have watched or read any of these stories! What books do you want to see turned into movies next? I’d love to see more YA books and romcoms in the big screen that aren’t so rooted in drama and tragedy, personally.

Author Interview || Elizabeth Tammi

This November, Elizabeth Tammi will release her sapphic novel Outrun the Wind, based on Greek mythology. Going by the number of asks we see on Tumblr from readers who are looking for books set in Ancient Greece, I’m thinking this is a story that will get people hyped. And hopefully, we can get more historical recommendations soon!

Author Interview || Lee Blauersouth

Lee Blauersouth self-published her superhero YA book this year and we finally got to interview them for the website. I have a feeling Lee’s book about a group of diverse LGBTQAP+ superheroes is the kind of genre many people around here like to read so I’m excited to let them share more about their writing here.
