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.
