It’s round two of Sapphicathon!
It goes from 1st February at 12am your time to 7th February 11:59. There are seven challenges you can complete if you would like, but not a requirement. You don’t have to do these if you want to participate, you can just sit back and read sapphic books more casually. There’s also have a Twitter you can follow if you’d like to keep up to date.
Because I’m working full-time (eek!) I am not going to attempt all seven challenges. However, I’m going to try and read as much as I can over that week, and have deliberately chosen shorter/middle grade books that I’ll hopefully fly through.
Challenge two: Read a book a host has read: Learning Curves by Ceillie Simkiss. Ceillie is such a lovely person, and I can’t believe that I haven’t read her first novella yet! This includes representation of: a fat Puerto Rican lesbian main character, an asexual panromantic main character with ADHD and a f/f romance.
Challenge four: Do a challenge from the previous SapphicAThon: I’m choosing the challenge MC realises they’re queer, and choosing Ivy Aberdeen’s Letter to the World by Ashley Herring Blake. I’ve only read one queer middle grade book before, and this sounds so perfect.
Challenge seven: Read a book with a woman of colour main character: Little & Lion by Brandy Colbert. As I’ll be reading during February (which is Black History Month), I deliberately chose a book by and about a black woman. The main characters are also Jewish, and discusses mental health, specifically bipolar disorder.
I think that’s it from me! Are you going to participate in this round of Sapphicathon? Let me know!
