This book was one of my most anticipated for 2021, and we were lucky enough to get approved for it on Edelweiss!! I absolutely ADORED this book, I finished it in one sitting and cried throughout about 90 percent of it. This book is about Grace, who has been working towards getting her PhD for 11 years and as a celebration for completing it, she goes to Vegas, where she ends up getting drunk married. Grace’s life plans fall apart when she meets her wife for the first time again after getting married.
(Young Adult Mystery/Thriller)
When a girl with a troubled history of finding dead bodies investigates the murder of her ex, she uncovers a plot to put herself—and everyone she loves—on the list of who’s next. Another recent read that I ADORED, Flora is my chaotic disaster bi baby, and this book was a JOURNEY. Full of friendships, murder, investigations, fights and family, this book was everything I love in a novel.
Sadly this book was one I didn’t love :(( This is a story about twin sisters Victoria and Vanessa. In high school, they used to bully Riley and Riley was glad when they finally moved away and she left high school. But now the twins are back, and Victoria is regretful for her past and still harbouring a crush on Riley from all those years ago. I just couldn’t get behind this book sadly, Riley went from hating Vic and everything she stood for to kissing her and being completely enamoured with her within 24 hours of seeing her again and one half-hearted apology.
(Young Adult Contemporary Sci-Fi)
I finally got round to reading this after seeing Theresa and so many other people screaming about it on twitter, and I’m so glad I did!! This book is so heartfelt and beautiful, I loved the writing style so much. Ryann Bird dreams of traveling across the stars. But a career in space isn’t an option for a girl who lives in a trailer park on the wrong side of town. One day she meets Alexandria and when a horrific accident leaves Alexandria with a broken arm, the two misfits are brought together despite themselves.
Every night without fail, Alexandria waits to catch radio signals from her mother. And its up to Ryann to lift her onto the roof day after day until the silence between them grows into friendship, and eventually something more . . .
(Adult Fantasy Romance)
A devout mermaid. A disgraced princess. A feud as ancient as the gods themselves. Worlds collide when Tallora is kidnapped from her ocean home and forced to be a pet to a tyrannical foreign empire. Her only hope for rescue lies with a sworn enemy—Princess Dauriel, infamous for her stone heart and conflicted past. I loved this book and this series as a whole! They’re all super short and the whole trilogy is out so I binged the 3 of them and it was super good!!
Sasha’s recent WLW reads:
(Young Adult Fantasy)
This is the sequel to The Rise of Kyoshi, a YA novel set in the world of Avatar: The Last Airbender and focusing on Avatar Kyoshi, renowned for her fierceness and for the creation of the Kyoshi warriors. I absolutely adore this series, it’s wonderful. Kyoshi is such an interesting and complex character and my absolute favourite thing is her romance with her friend, bodyguard and firebending teacher Rangi, the tension and yearning between these two is real!
(Adult Historical Fiction)
I finally got round to reading the most popular sapphic book, and I really enjoyed it 🙂 Hollywood icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the world her story, and when she selects unknown journalist Monique, Monique suspects there is more to her tale than meets the eye.
(Young Adult Mystery/Thriller)
When her sister Silva goes missing, Becks is determined to figure out where she went, with only a few clues left in Silva’s bedroom to help her. I quite enjoyed this mystery thriller centering round sisterhood and most of all I loved our main character Becks and her romance with her friend China 🙂
(Adult Contemporary Romance)
This short and cute f/f romance novel quickly cemented itself as a favourite of mine! Lo is in a tight spot money wise, but the only way to get ahold of her inheritance is to get married – so who better to get fake married to than her best friend Cara, who also needs some cash? It’s just a ruse to get the money, after all Cara is straight and it’s not like Lo could ever fall for her childhood best friend…right? This was a masterpiece of friends-to-lovers, marriage of convenience and SO much yearning, I absolutely adored it.
(Young Adult Fantasy)
Amber constantly screams about this book and has single-handedly made so many people on sapphic book twitter read it so I finally picked it up too!! I loved this one so much.

But when a lifelong friend with connections recommends her to the king to track down a runaway princess, her life gets turned upside down. Finding the princess is easy. Deciding what to do in a conflicting mess of politics and emotions… not so much.
