Collage of covers listed at the links with the text Lesbrary Links: Bi & Lesbian Lit News and Reviews

I follow hundreds of queer book blogs to scout out the best sapphic book news and reviews! Many of them get posted on Tumblr and Twitter as I discover them, but my favourites get saved for these link compilations. Here are some of the posts I’ve found interesting in the last few weeks.

A Spindle Splintered by Alix E. Harrow was reviewed at NPR.

Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl by Andrea Lawlor was reviewed at Autostraddle.
