Hiya guys! A few weeks ago on Twitter, I (Sasha) asked people to tell me their favourite tropes and I’d recommend them a sapphic book! I answered a few, with Amber’s help, but soon enough my followers were taking over, recommending each other books. I think we all added several books to our TBRs, especially me! Anyway, I thought it would be fun to turn it into a quick blog post! – Sasha and Amber
