This week’s topic:
February 14th: Favorite F/F Couples
— Who are your favorite ladies loving other ladies? (Note: this isn’t specifically cis lesbian couples, but also applies to couples that include bi women, trans women, pan women, ace women, etc.)
Last week was kind of a wild ride with everyone’s posts about m/m couples and I can only imagine what a mess this week will be. If you follow me on twitter you’ll know what I mean, but anyway here’s my list of favorite f/f couples in random order!
(Usual spoiler warning because these are canon couples!)
- Cas x Swift from The Abyss Surrounds Us: I love them so much! All you need to know about this series is that it’s about sea monsters and pirate girlfriends and if that doesn’t make you want to read it then I don’t know what will! I love this romance because it’s so healthy and they recognize the power imbalance between them and know they can’t be together while that lasts. #whenwillyourhetcouple
- Annie x Liza from Annie on my Mind: if you know me, you know it’s very hard for me to pick One favorite but if I have to go with one absolutely favorite f/f couple then it’s gotta be this. Silly me thought this book was going to be boring because it’s from the Eighties!!! How wrong she (me) was!!! I don’t know if I’ve ever felt a romance in my bones as much as I’ve felt this one. It’s like I was Liza and I was falling in love with Annie myself. Most importantly, this has a happy ending because sapphic girls deserve happy endings too.
- Sunati x Austen from Always Human: okay okay I know I talk about this all the time now but LISTEN they stole my heart and this whole comic is purely amazing (the art, the friendships) but the romance, the romance!!! It’s literally the cutest thing I’ve ever read and I’m so happy that it’s becoming my legacy to have people add this to their TBR and read it.
- Mia x Ash from Godsgrave: well who would have thought that after book one I’d be on board with this! But oh my god. Enemies to lovers is my all time favorite trope and this was done so right. I also love how Mia’s bisexuality wasn’t pushed aside for the sake of the romance – Mia was very aware of her attraction to men as well.
- Barrie x Ava from A&B: I think this was the second or third f/f romance I’ve ever read and I still think about it all the time. It’s a perfect enemies to friends to lovers and it talks a lot about music and the creative process, as well as things like envy and social media exposure.
Also, just a quick reminder to enter my giveaway on twitter because today is the last day! These are all queer YA books and four of them have main f/f couples (two of which I’ve talked about in this post).
