So you posted about it not being many popular wlw books around here. Do you have some good books with a wlw protagonist? I really wanna read more lesbian books. Love you xx
sdfghjkl oh boy here comes a masterpost
i’m also happy to recomend individual books if you send your three current favourite books to my lit/wlw blog!
if you like percy jackson: the dark wife by sarah diemer (it’s free!). trigger warning for rape at the beginning though.
if you enjoyed the picture of dorian gray (or books that are incredibly exquisite!) read the price of salt or carol by patricia highsmith. it was recently made into an excellent movie starring cate blanchett & rooney mara.
if you like pain, read the well of loneliness. it doesn’t not end happily, but i enjoyed it nevertheless.
virginia woolf’s works have lots of sapphic themes– orlando has a nonbinary/genderfluent protagonist, and in mrs dalloway clarissa remembers her affair with sally seton. i would also read her love letters to vita sackville-west!
edit: when i get the money, i will be buying thérèse et isabelle by violette leduc, a french lesbian novel that is, most likely, the most beautiful book i have ever read. for now i’m reading excerpts on the internet, which you can find here and here.
fingersmith by sarah waters is also supposed to be good, though i haven’t read it!
