In light of all the new books I have acquired recently I also added quite a few to my TBR list on Goodreads. After seeing this brilliant list featuring F/F books and sapphic main characters I went on a book hunting spree! In case anyone is unaware of what that means entirely, let me explain. It essentially means books that feature lesbian, bi or queer women. Because, girl power and representation, yes please! Here are Five F/F Books I recently added to my TBR:
