Maria recs || Sapphic media to watch on Netflix

Every time I open Netflix, there is a moment of struggle to find something new that I’m actually interested in watching. I scroll through all the different genres until I get stuck in the LGBTQ+ section that barely has anything that I find enjoyable or that I haven’t watched a hundred times already. But sometimes I find one or another new surprise! So I’ve decided to share some of the movies and series that I loved because I’m sure someone else will need this small but nice list. Hopefully, more sapphic media will be added to the catalog or someone will recommend me some more options! Feel free to add your own favorites at the comments.

Summary:

Some love stories are not simple, Sweety’s is one such story. She has to contend with her over-enthusiastic family that wants to get her married, a young writer who is completely smitten by her, a secret that she harbors close to her heart and ultimately the truth that her true love might not find acceptance in her family and society. Resolving these issues proves hilarious, touching and life-changing.

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.
