Are you doing Jae’s Sapphic Reading Challenge 2021? If not, maybe you should consider it! There are prizes on offer, as well as the chance to read more widely and be introduced to a ton of new books and authors. Plus, if you join her Facebook group, you could even chat about the books you’ve read with other like-minded readers, too. It’s a triple win!
How does it work? In Jae’s own words: “The goal is to read sapphic books that fit as many of the 50 categories listed as possible. You can read ebooks, paperbacks, or audiobooks; and they can be new-to-you books or re-reads. I’ll post book recommendations for a new category once a week. Of course, you could also just read whatever books you want and then, afterwards, see what categories they fit into. Depending on how many sapphic books you manage to read in 2021, you can earn different badges and book prizes.”
Basically, read books that fit certain tropes, and there are prizes to be had! Plus, you get to call yourself a Book Penguin, a Book Dragon or even a Book Unicorn.
Jae has 50 categories to tick off in her challenge, so I thought I’d list my books and what category they fit in. I’ve got 18 novels, and there are 50 categories. I might miss some matches, but I’m going to do the absolute best I can, and hopefully it might help you to fill your challenge card and puff your reading muscles. Ready? Here goes…

Welcome to episode 41 of the Lesbian Book Club as I interview US author TB Markinson, whose recent books have included The Fall Girl and A Family Woman. TB talks about being an American in London, the highs and lows of living the writing life, the magic of characters and story, and why she started her new website www.iheartlesfic.com to serve the lesbian fiction community.
As usual, I also do a run-down of the Amazon lesbian fiction charts in the US & UK, as well as highlighting the shortlists for the Diva Awards and the Goldies – Diva is taking place in June in London, and the Goldies in July in Las Vegas. Tickest are still available for both! Plus, if you’re in the UK, don’t forget EllCon, the brand-new European Lesfic Literary Conference on the block coming in August. For more on that, head to: http://ellconmeet.org/
As if that wasn’t enough, I also fill you in on what I’ve been up to, including wrapping up The London Of Us, book four in the London Romance series (due out in June); and writing my joint lesbian romance with Harper Bliss – called Once Upon A Princess – a royal romance due out at the end of May.
