I was shooting kindle sale links at my friends (as one does) and including little descriptions when I started noticing a pattern: almost everything I was sharing was F/F. There’s been a lot of chatter (read: discourse) over on book Twitter about there ‘not being any ff content’ or how it’s hard to find. Or even how the couples all have the same dynamic? It’s topic that comes up frequently and one that I just don’t understand. To to prove just how easy it is to find good F/F content, I’ve compiled 5 F/F recs that you can get on kindle for under $5 each right now.
Since the original television series, the Avatar franchise has had both good (Legend of Korra) and ugly (that movie we don’t speak of) additions. I’m pleased to share that this story about Avatar Kyoshi is definitely a win. And we get bisexual rep? Yes, please!
High fantasy. Dragons. Strong women. Hella world building. Four POVs?! Don’t let the page count scare you away from this almost entirely female-cast fantasy! Want your Game of Thrones-esque fantasy without the sexual assault? Look no furhter!
I’m a sucker for a good historical romance. Even moreso when it has a strong feminist message with it. A scientist and an artist? I SWOON! And the astronomer? She’s so passionate about scientist and is willing to do what it takes to succeed in a male-dominated field that shuts out women. It really resonated with me and the relationship in this was so well handled.
This novella has been out a little over a month and while I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, I’ve heard nothing but wonderful things about it! I’ve been promised beautiful, luscious writing and a unique story in a neat, small package. I can’t wait to sit down and devour this story!
It’s pretty much a fact of life that the Great British Bake Off is good comfort watching so it stands to reason that a novella about a holiday baking competition makes for good comfort reading. Like, I don’t even care that this is a holiday novella. If you’re looking for a short, sweet read, look no further.
I actually just read this this morning after I got home from work. The second person POV almost made it feel like a fanfic? It felt comforting and like there were no heavy expectations on you as a reader to exert yourself while reading despite the gorgeous and poetic language that was used. Yang, as always, uses prose that sweeps you away in a magic-inufsed, sci-fi tale. If you haven’t read anything by J.Y. Yang, I highly recommend picking up this short story.
Have you read any of these? Plan to pick one up? What’s your favorite f/f read?
Thanks for stopping by! Stay safe and find happiness ❤️ -Shon
