Alienne I can't believe 'Keeping You A Secret' isn't on here! *adds*


message 2: by Jess (new)

Jess I wish there were more books :( I don't really know any heh.


message 3: by Ab (new)

Ab Everyone should check out feministqueerlibrary and add to friends! My girlfriend and I are trying to get together a bigger, more comprehensive list of books in the LGBT genre, fiction and non, adult, YA, children's, etc. So if you have any books to add after viewing the list, you definitely should send a message suggestion!


message 4: by Briar Rose (new)

Briar Rose I don't think it actually counts as lesbian fiction, but The Telling, by Ursula Le Guin is a great sci-fi novel with a lesbian main character.


message 5: by Baxter (new)

Baxter Trautman Check out the latest from Lambda Literary Award nominee, Baxter Clare Trautman. The River Within follows three women whose bonds are strained, reforged, and ultimately strengthened as they struggle to choose between the lives they think they should have and the lives they want.


message 6: by Sandra (new)

Sandra Forbes hmmm, what about the Beebo Brinker series?


message 7: by Xandra (new)

Xandra I recommend Haruki Murakami's Sputnik Sweetheart. It's an unrequited love story, but it's beautiful and full of emotion.


message 8: by Sandra (new)

Sandra Forbes Lesley Gowen is pretty good too

Ulithium The Kendrian Chronicle: Human Zero

By Ulithium

[image error]On a planet called Chromast, fifteen year-old Kendra opts out of the daily psychotropic supplements widely consumed in her utopian society. After evading detention for disorderly conduct, she is left to face her bourgeoning sexuality, her mother’s untimely death, and the newfound knowledge that her planet isn’t as harmonious as it seems.

In this science fiction, coming- of- age, LGBT-oriented epic, a new heroine emerges. Kendra embodies the archetypal mystical revolutionary in a new way. She is determined to rescue the love of her life, Lindra, from an abusive center for troubled children, only to come face to face with the price of utopia.

message 15: by Nancy (new)

Nancy Did I miss seeing The Dark Side of Venus by Shirley Verel on this list? Can't believe it isn't on here. I remember it well as I went to the trouble of acquiring a hardcover first edition from England-which I still have! Well written and the 2 women end up together. Published in 1960 and I don't believe it has been re-issued but I am researching it now. Google has digitized it but the link seems to not work this morning.

message 16: by Anna (new)

Anna Rose Can anyone recommend any books with a femme couple/pairing? Lately (or all) the F/F books I've read feature a femme woman and an androgynous woman. Would like to discover a femme/femme pairing for once! (preferably historical or a good erotica but I'm not picky as long as it's a good read)

Try "Desert Hearts" aka: Desert of the heart. Years ago I got all my Lesbian books via naiad press... http://www.naiadpress.com/ I read so many I can't remember them all.. I do remember one of my favorites was Kathleen Forest "An emergence of green" Hope this helps and if I think of anything else I will let you know.


message 18: by Anna (new)

Anna Rose thanks Sandra, was there a movie of that? Sure I watched it


message 19: by Sandra (new)

Sandra Forbes Hi Bb, yes there was a movie and the movie was better. I had a hard time getting through the book but that was back in the 80's and I was still just getting into reading. Check out the naiad press link, find what you would like there and then look to buy them somewhere else cheaper ;) Back in the day I used to order from them and they would arrive in the mail in brown paper disguise... those were the years where we could not just but them at any bookstore... was like being a pervert, crazy really. Check out "Travels with Diana Hunter" can't remember the author... that one is more of a players story but I don't remember there being a lot of butch/femme distinction. It's hard to find fem/fem from back in the day because it was an uncommon pairing up back then. I would imagine today there would be more of it but, I just can't seem to recall any off the top of my head... although I did read one not too long ago.. I will look later on my shelf to see if I can find some.


message 20: by Anna (new)

Anna Rose thanks for the info Sandra, will look into the book!


message 21: by Chi (new)

Chi Can anyone tell me of any books that feature a married woman that falls in love with a woman? Books like Elena undone and an infatuation..

Thanks!

Try my Small Town Series. The first novel is called The News In Small Towns. It sounds like exactly what you're looking for.
