I’m joining SapphicAThon!

SapphicAThon is a readathon created by Tasha @catsandpaperbacks and co-hosted by AmelieEliseJamieson, and Miriam.

It’s all about reading books where the main character is involved in a F/F romance (it can’t be a side romance!) and it runs from December 14th to December 28th of your timezone.

This post is kind of late because I wasn’t sure that I would have time to participate, but since I’m flying home for the holidays it looks like I will (hopefully) get a lot of reading time.

Even if you aren’t sure you can participate, I still encourage you to look at Tasha’s post because it comes with a ton of F/F recs.

Kind of side note, but people, it’s not enough to complain that there aren’t many F/F romances out there and do nothing about it. The books are there and they’re getting published and they’re often by marginalized authors and it’s everyone’s job to find them and boost them the same way M/M romances are. I myself know that I need to do better in this regard and participating in this readathon is hopefully a step forward in this sense.

If you do decide to participate and need some extra sense of accomplishment, you can look at the bingo board below. It has challenges that can help you decide which books you want to read, and you don’t have to get a bingo but it’s an added bonus if you want to challenge yourself more.

I myself don’t know exactly how many books I’m going to be able to read. I am a slow reader after all and I have a few things I need to do before Christmas, other than spending time with my family obviously, but I decided that no matter how many books I’ll manage to read, it will still be better than not participating.

I will probably make a quick TBR post next week to help me stick to it and I’ll also try to link a few other rec threads/posts that I found over the months to help you find even more F/F books.

Let me know if you will participate and make sure that if you’re on twitter you follow along with #SapphicAThon and follow the official account @wlwreadathon. I will probably make a thread in order to track my progress during the challenge so if you want you can follow me there too and laugh at me when I fail (just kidding, there is no failing 💪🏻).
