Hop in, traveler!
For the third year in a row, Ellie and Imi are hosting the F/F Feb Readathon! And this year, I’m participating!
This readathon is focusing on reading books that feature f/f pairings and/or sapphic characters and is happening during February. To help us decide what to read, they created a bingo card with nine different prompts:

I’m hoping to read 5 books for this readathon, which is a big amount for me — I usually read 4 books per month. But this year, we’re challenging ourselves! Enough chit-chat now, let’s head over my F/F February TBR.

THE EMPRESS OF SALT AND FORTUNE
prompt: an f/f audiobook
A young royal from the far north is sent south for a political marriage. Alone and sometimes reviled, she has only her servants on her side.

ANNIE ON MY MIND

When Liza Winthrop first lays eyes on Annie Kenyon at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, she knows there’s something special between them. Soon, their close friendship develops into a deep and intimate romance.

I mostly chose short books to help me achieve my goal. I’m pretty happy with my list, and I can’t wait to discover all these stories!
