SapphicAThon Announcement and Recommendations

When the SapphicAThon was announced, I was stoked. A two-week readathon focused on reading female/female romance books? I’m in, mostly because I love readathons. Hey, it fuels the book nerd in me.

The SapphicAThon goes from 12 am your time on December 14 through 11:59 your time on December 28. You can read as many books as you like, but the main focus is to have fun.

There is an optional bingo challenge where you try to complete as many of the themes listed on the card below. You can use a different book for each spot or one book for multiple spots, but the only rule of the readathon is to read f/f romances that involve the main character.

If you are looking for suggestions, I have compiled a list of books that fit the category and are based on books I’ve read, enjoyed and reviewed for Sistahs on the Shelf. All feature POC main characters. Any book I haven’t read is marked and are based on other participants’ recommendations (*).
