okay okay, hope you haven’t read any of these!

Wildthorn by Jane Eagland (lesbians in Victorian England!!!)

Kissing the Witch by Emma Donoghue (fairy tales retold except with queer characters)

Ask the Passengers by A S King (this one is in a way about the fact that she’s queer but also very thought provoking so yea i would recommend it anyway)

'Wildthorn' by Jane Egland

This. Fucking. Book. Wildthorn is a Victorian lunatic asylum, where seventeen year old Louisa Cosgrove ends up being sent - but doesn’t think she is where she is meant to be. The people working there insist her name is Lucy, and that she is completely insane, despite her protests that she isn’t who they think she is. I cant say much more because it is very difficult not to spoil things about this book, but I will say that it is based on a true story and is simultaneously frightening and enthralling. Also, it has Victorian lesbians which is a pretty rare concept for authors so yay for representation. At the heart of it, this is a mystery - she is trying to unravel the reason she ended up there - but it is a story about love and prejudice in a very tightly-laced society.

the crystal sketch i did for @wildthorne lives with me at the studio along with treasures gifted & collected.
