About the Lesbrary:

The Lesbrary is a book blog about bi and lesbian books, with occasional coverage of other identities under the broad “doesn’t identify as a man and is at least some of the time attracted romantically and/or sexually to others who do not identify as a man” category.  Lesbrary books don’t have to be written by a queer author, though it helps.

The Lesbrary is mostly made up of reviews, but also has features like Link Round Ups (a collection of all the latest lesbian and bi lit news and reviews) and guest posts.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at danikaellis at gmail with “Lesbrary” included in the subject.


The Lesbrary is made up of about a dozen reviewers at a time, but we also post guest reviews! If you would like to submit a review (or interview with a queer woman or non-binary author, or other relevant content), email danikaellis at gmail with “Lesbrary” included in the subject.

If you would like to submit a book to be reviewed at the Lesbrary, please see the Review Policy page.

About the Lesbrarians:

Once upon a time it was just Danika at the Lesbrary. Now there’s a whole team of Lesbrarians! Danika still manages the Lesbrary, but the reviews are done by the whole team.

If you would like to join the Lesbrary as a regular reviewer (at least one review a month) and receive ebooks to review, email danikaellis at gmail with “Lesbrary” included in the subject.

    I can tell I am going to love this blog. I am always looking for good lesbian fiction to read. Thanks for bringing this together. I love the blog header, by the way. Did one of the lesbrarians do the art herself? It’s great.

    This is a great site! I too am also looking for good lesbian fiction to read.

    I wish I had time to review! I’m a working on my book of short stories that are a mix of straight and LBGT stories. Do you review in advance of publication? Well no matter, I’m going to look at everything you have here!
