Femslash February TBR

For those of you who may not know, Tumblr does this thing called Femslash February, where they devote February to celebrate fictional f/f romance through art, playlists, fanfiction, etc. That, in conjunction with the recent discussion in the book community about the comparative lack of attention paid to f/f romance and the sheer number of unread f/f books on my tbr, has inspired me to devote my February to reading all the f/f romances that I’ve meaning to read the past couple of years and not gotten around to. I can’t promise I’ll finish all of them, but I will certainly try!

The Abyss Surrounds Us by Emily Skrutskie (which I’ve already started and really like!)
If You Could Be Mine by Sara Farizan
Everything Leads to You by Nina Lacour
Adaptation and Inheritence by Malinda Lo (I’ve read Adaptation but remember nothing about it)
Far From You by Tess Sharpe
The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow
The Summer I Wasn’t Me by Jessica Verdi
Fingersmith by Sarah Waters

And in case anyone was wondering, some of my favorite books with f/f romance and/or LBPQ female protaganists are:

The Engelsfors Trilogy by Sara B. Elfgren and Mats Strandberg (ensemble cast with prominent f/f relationship)
The Lynburn Legacy by Sarah Rees Brennan (secondary characters, but one of them has a POV and both characters and their romance are pretty significant in the story)
The Posterchildren by Kitty Burroughs (ensemble cast, one of the main characters is a lesbian)
Ash and Huntress by Malinda Lo
Santa Olivia by Jacqueline Carey
The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily Danforth
Not Otherwise Specified by Hannah Moskowitz
Under the Lights by Dahlia Adler
Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley
Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel by Sara Farizan
My Lady King and Make Much of Me by Kayla Bashe
The Legend Mirror by Saruuh Kelsey
Kissing the Witch by Emma Donoghue

If anyone has any recommendations, YA or otherwise, please let me know!

  1. This is a cool goal! I’ve been interested in reading Everything Leads To You for a while now. I’ve yet to read ANY F/F books, so I can’t wait to read your reviews on these ^_^

    • Well, if you ever need recs for f/f books or want to know more about the ones I just posted, definitely talk to me! There are so many good ones out there that fly under the radar.

  2. I’m intrigued by this post! I haven’t read a lot of f/f myself, though I have several in my TBR. I have read If You Could Be Mine, and while I enjoyed it overall, the relationship was unrealistic to me, in that I had no idea why one girl loved the other so much, because frankly, the other girl was selfish and manipulative. At any rate, I hope you enjoy your February reads! Looking forward to your reviews šŸ™‚

    • I’ve heard that about the book as well, but I still love the concept of the story, and I’m a fan of the other Sara Farizan book I’ve read, so I’m looking forward to this one. Thank you for your comment!
