Adult Sapphic Recs

Hello and welcome to my giant adult sapphic rec list!

This is in no way an exhaustive list, if I tried to include them all I'd never manage to actually publish it but I've tried to include a vast range of authors and genres, and I will update this semi-regularly throughout time! I've combined all sorts of contemporary sub-generes together but historical fiction and fantasy / sci-fi have their own section at the bottom and everything is organised alphabetically by author last name.  If you're more into Young Adult or New Adult then you can check out my rec list of those titles here!

Disclaimer: I created these rec lists entirely by myself and therefore any mistakes are mine. If you know that a specific author / book is missing please fill in this form and  I will add them when I next update the rec list.
