Hello bookworms! I’m Nia and today I’m going to be talking about some of my favourite f/f romances!
Okay, this was a pretty tough topic to me, because I haven’t read many f/f romances that I can remember, so I had to think for a little while until I came across five of them. However, most of these couples aren’t main characters, and their relationship isn’t the focus of the story, which is sad because I really love them, and I’d love to read more about them.
If you aren’t familiar with Top 5 Wednesday, it is a Goodeads group now currently run by Sam over at ToughtsOfTomes on Youtube, where each week they give you a topic and you talk about 5 books that fit that category. You can join the group here if you want to participate!
Without any further ado, let’s start with this week’s topic!
Sophie & Mina | Far From You
My thoughts: I cannot tell you how heartbroken I ended after reading this book. This is not a happy love story, and I clearly knew that after reading the synopsis, but the two women were so cute together that I almost wanted to have a different plot. I loved them so much, and how they cared and loved each other. I wish there was a prequel where I could read all about the romance and friendship, because I wanted more.
I have a review of this book here, in case you want to check it out.
Nine months. Two weeks. Six days.
That’s how long recovering addict Sophie’s been drug-free. Four months ago her best friend, Mina, died in what everyone believes was a drug deal gone wrong – a deal they think Sophie set up. Only Sophie knows the truth. She and Mina shared a secret, but there was no drug deal. Mina was deliberately murdered.
Forced into rehab for an addiction she’d already beaten, Sophie’s finally out and on the trail of the killer—but can she track them down before they come for her?
Sage & Cal | Geekerella
My thoughts: These two were so freaking adorable and I want a spin-off about them. No joke. Sage was one of my favourite characters, and when I read that she got a girlfriend I couldn’t be happier. If you haven’t read it, whoops, I guess it’s a spoiler, but not really. The only thing is that this romance happened toward the end (they both were side characters), and there wasn’t enough romance, and I kinda wanted to read more about them. But still, I loved them.
Geek girl Elle Wittimer lives and breathes Starfield, the classic science-fiction series she grew up watching with her late father. So when she sees a cosplay contest for a new Starfield movie, she has to enter. The prize? An invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. With savings from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck and her dad’s old costume, Elle’s determined to win – unless her stepsisters get there first.
Teen actor Darien Freeman used to live for cons – before he was famous. Now they’re nothing but autographs and awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Carmindor is all he has ever wanted, but Starfield fandom has written him off as just another dumb heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, Darien feels more and more like a fake – until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise. But when she disappears at midnight, will he ever be able to find her again?
Willow & Tara | Buffy the Vampire Slayer
My thoughts: To be completely honest, it wasn’t until recently that I started re-watching this show that I realised how much I love Willow and Tara. This was one of my favourite TV shows when I was younger, but I’m pretty sure I didn’t finish watching all seasons, and recently I’ve been thinking a lot about Buffy, so maybe that’s a sign. Anyways, I loved them because they are so funny and have such hilarious moments together (and more dramatic and angsty ones, too), and they deserve their own mention.
Cassie & Mina | The Upside of Unrequited
My thoughts: I need a spin-off about these two, okay? Even though they were quite important, and I knew a lot of things about them and their relationship in this book, I’d loove for them to have their own novel, and possibly one that’s full of fluff and romance. They were so cute, and also funny together, that it was impossible for me not to love their relationship.
Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love—she’s lived through it twenty-six times. She crushes hard and crushes often, but always in secret. Because no matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.
Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly’s totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie’s new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. Will is funny and flirtatious and just might be perfect crush material. Maybe more than crush material. And if Molly can win him over, she’ll get her first kiss and she’ll get her twin back.
There’s only one problem: Molly’s coworker Reid. He’s an awkward Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there’s absolutely no way Molly could fall for him. Right?
Lingyi & Iris | Want
My thoughts: Even though it wasn’t the main couple of the story and they were more side characters, I still really love their relationship. There were some really cute scenes between them throughout the book. Not only they had a really pure and healthy relationship, but they were actually really amazing characters, and I’d love to read more about them!
I have a review of this book here, in case you want to check it out.
Jason Zhou survives in a divided society where the elite use their wealth to buy longer lives. The rich wear special suits that protect them from the pollution and viruses that plague the city, while those without suffer illness and early deaths. Frustrated by his city’s corruption and still grieving the loss of his mother, who died as a result of it, Zhou is determined to change things, no matter the cost.
With the help of his friends, Zhou infiltrates the lives of the wealthy in hopes of destroying the international Jin Corporation from within. Jin Corp not only manufactures the special suits the rich rely on, but they may also be manufacturing the pollution that makes them necessary.
Yet the deeper Zhou delves into this new world of excess and wealth, the more muddled his plans become. And against his better judgment, Zhou finds himself falling for Daiyu, the daughter of Jin Corp’s CEO. Can Zhou save his city without compromising who he is or destroying his own heart?
