WORD WONDERS’ TBR EXPANSION : Books with main F/F pairings PT. 2

f-f pairings

Hello friends!

A year and a half ago, I posted a list on here with some 30+ books with main f/f pairings (linked at the end of the post). And in the time since then, I found myself with so so many books that fall under that category to recommend and debated whether to update the old list or just make an new one so I just settled on making a new one 1/ for easy access and 2/ because a post with almost a 100 books can be pretty tedious because YES, this list of sapphic books I have today is 50 BOOKS LONG. And there are so many more out there that I haven’t included or don’t even know of, and the number of f/f reads out there just waiting for me to discover and/or read them just makes my heart happy. Without further ado, here are the books.

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.

Word Wonders’ TBR Expansion: Books with East and South East Asian Main Characters

East and SE Asian.png

Hello friends!

I’m back again with a book list post that takes a WHOLE DAY (literally) to make but hey! No regrets, even though I hate making these, I love making them. Forgive me if this doesn’t make sense, it’s well past two am as I’m typing this and I might or might not be delirious with fatigue, but shhhh. ANYWAY. As I was working on my #YARC2019 TBR last month, I realized that although I have lists that include South and West Asian books, I still hadn’t done one with books that have East or South East Asian main characters, but FRET NOT, I’m here to remedy that today. And so far, this is the list I’ve compiled that has the most books with 70+ items.

Word Wonder’s TBR Expansion: Books with Transgender and/or Non-binary Main Characters


Trans & enby MCs.png


Hello friends!

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve added to my recommendations series (since August to be precise) but we all know I was in a slump and when I got out of it I wanted to take things easy and since these posts take A LOT of time and Energy to put together and I really didn’t feel up to writing one at all. Up until a couple weeks ago so good news, WE’RE BACK FOLKS! I’m not going to be making them monthly anymore, these post will happen maybe once every three months or so because of the aforementioned reasons. I’ll stop rambling now and get on with a list of books with non-binary and/or transgender main characters. Continue reading

Word Wonder’s TBR Expansion: MENAH Month Recommendations

Menah Month

Hello friends!

I know I haven’t really been keeping up with blogging the past month and I’m really sorry about that! But I’ll get more into that in my August wrap-up, for now, I am back with a list that’s near and dear to my heart. In case you didn’t know (how?) I’m North African, Moroccan to be more specific. So, in celebration of August being Middle Eastern North African Heritage Month (which, most of the world isn’t aware of) I decided I would make books with North African and Middle Eastern  main characters the focus of my recommendations post.

WORD WONDERS’ TBR EXPANSION : Books with South Asian Main Characters


South asian MCs.png

Hello friends!

It’s been a while since I’ve done a recommendations post, with my hiatus and only being here for half June, I didn’t get around to putting one together last month and I also didn’t have a time slot for it. But now here we are. I’ve been wanting to do Asian book recommendations for a while but since there are so many beautiful identities under the umbrella term, I decided that to make easier for me as well as for people who are looking for recommendations, I’ll split it up in regions so for today’s post, it’s books with South Asian main characters.

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

WORD WONDERS’ TBR EXPANSION : Books with Depression representation


Hello friends !

For this month’s recommendations I chose Books with Depression representation. There was no mystical reasoning behind it, I just thought that there isn’t enough mental health talk and featuring more books with it -centering it or not. I already did Anxiety and I’m slowly making my way but let me tell you, this list was way harder to gather than I originally anticipated. Depression in books isn’t that common to begin with and a lot of books seem to go about it the wrong way so actually finding some that are good was quite the struggle, not gonna lie. And even then, the number of books I was able to find isn’t that impressive.

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.

WORD WONDERS’ TBR EXPANSION : Books with main F/F pairings

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.

#DiverseBookBloggersDiscuss : Fat Characters Mariam is Excited for


It’s a great honor to be featured on the blog of the person who literally was the reason I created mine. I began blogging and reviewing seriously because Fadwa inspired me. I would not have half of my confidence if it wasn’t for her and many others in this community. (Fadwa’s note: I had tears in my eyes when I read this. It means the world to me.)

It’s no surprise I’ll be talking about fat protagonists in my feature because I’m a proud fatty and I’ve been recently inspired by the cover reveal of a certain book. Continue reading

WORD WONDERS’ TBR EXPANSION : Books with Native/Indigenous Main Characters

Native indigenous MCs

Hello guys !

I’m back again with a recommendations post that I quite frankly have been procrastinating for a couple weeks, like everything blogging lately to be honest, I’m just having a hard time doing anything blog related these days because of stress and whatnot but THAT’S NOT THE POINT. The point here is I’m back with a new recommendations post, I had planned a completely different topic for this month but as it was brought to my attention that November is Native American Heritage month, I thought it would be more fitting to come up with a list of books by Native / Indigenous authors and boost those to the best of my capability.

I got most of these books through Weezie @ Weezie’s Whimsical books and the recommendations they bless us with on Twitter so I’d recommend checking their blog out and giving them a follow because they do a lot for the community.

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

WORD WONDERS’ TBR EXPANSION : Book with Anxiety representation

Anxiety rep.png

Hello guys !

A whole month has gone by and it’s time again for a recommendations’ list and this month’s isn’t as extensive as the previous ones and definitely not as extensive as I would’ve wanted it to be. This month’s theme is Books with Anxiety representation because October 10th was Mental Health Awarness and even though I’m a few days late that’s what sparked this post. And while researching for it, aside from the fact that anxiety rep is severely lacking as a whole (which I expected but still surprised me) I came to two realizations:

  1. Anxious POC are almost inexistant in books.
  2. Anxiety in SFF doesn’t exist either.

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
