f-f pairings

Hello friends !

So. Today is Valentine’s Day and I’m back with a recommendations post. While trying to figure out what to choose as this month’s “representation” I remembered that for some folks the month is aaaaall about romance and things like that, which is great if you’re into it but if you’ve followed me for a while, you know that this is my third february blogging and I’ve never done anything different to celebrate this date buuuut I figured since a lot of people read romance this month and that f/f relationships are severely overlooked, I decided it’s the perfect time to highlight them. So yeah, for this month, I will be recommending books with female/female relationships.

I will try to include content warnings for as many of them. The ones that I couldn’t find content warnings for will have a (*) in front of their titles. Continue reading

You might assume my parents’ are East Asian. But you’d be right on only one of those accounts. The only thing true about the three statements above is that I love rice. I do speak a second language, but not because I learned it at home. I studied it in college. And my parents’ aren’t East Asian, in fact, my mom is white and she’s a single-mom. Continue reading
