SapphicAThon is Acomin’!

Do I have a list that is pretty much beyond possible to complete before the end of 2017? Have I already gone above and beyond my 2017 Reading Challenge already? Am I gonna add a big list of F/F books to my 2017 TBR because SapphicAThon is just around the corner?





If you haven’t checked out the guys running @wlwreathon you should for sure check it out. Because for 2 weeks, starting at 12am 14th December, they are hosting SapphicAThon – a readathon with just 1 rule:

Read f/f romances that involves the main character

You can head over to Cats and Paperbacks, one of 5 gorgeous hosts, to check out some details including a incredibly helpful rec list and an optional bingo board!




This is my plan of attack at the current time. I’m focusing on YA books (bc I love me some YA) and while some of these books overlap categories I’ve listed them as I will be using them for the bingo board. This list will most likely change as I am relying on library availability for this challenge*.

*Because with xmas around the corner I should limit the destruction of my wallet and bookshelf.

There’s also a 110% I won’t get to all these books.

Note(1): At this time I’m not aiming to get a bingo, but rather just complete the challenges as a way of broadening my reading throughout the challenge! It’s completely up to you how you approach this readathon though.

Note(2): You’ll notice there is a lot of overlap with C&PB’s rec list – this is because I used her list as a foundation and then expanded and checked out what my library had available.

*I made a mistake because Ramona Blue doesn’t actually have any F/F romance despite the MC being bi. Thank you to Tasha @Cats and Paperbacks for fixing me up a bit!
