  1. Kind of random. I’m looking for decent books with f/f or at this point I’d take just a bi or lesbian character. Do you recall any from your reading this year? I usually have good luck finding books worth reading in general while snooping through other people’s reading lists and there’s a lot here I’m not familiar with.

  2. Proper English by KJ Charles is f/f with a side of m/m. It was VERY nicely done. The other KJ Charles in the list are m/m — also nicely done, but not what you’re looking for. I have the impression, from nowhere in particular, that nicely done f/f is hard to find.

  3. Nicely done f/f is sparse. It’s got to the point I just read what I read and if there is a happy surprise in there all the better. But it’s occurred to me to ask around more. I’ll add those to my shortlist. Thanks!
