Fiction lesbienne vs. lesfic, ou pourquoi I’d rather read (and write) in English

J'ai commencé à écrire ce texte en introduction à la critique d'un roman français, mais j'ai finalement décidé de séparer les deux. Il me paraissait injuste envers le livre et son autrice de consacrer autant de lignes aux raisons pour lesquelles je préfère lire en anglais, plutôt qu'à ce que j'ai aimé ou non dans … Continue reading Fiction lesbienne vs. lesfic, ou pourquoi I’d rather read (and write) in English

Don’t Cry for Me (Midnight in Manhattan, #1) – Rachel Lacey

4.5* - Who doesn’t love an ice queen? Eve Marlow has good reasons to protect her heart, and herself in general, and that no-nonsense you-do-what-you-have-to-do quality has come in very handy in her job as a TV personality helping faltering small businesses flourish. Not even the iciest of ice queens, however, can leave newborn kittens … Continue reading Don’t Cry for Me (Midnight in Manhattan, #1) – Rachel Lacey

The Mortician’s Daughter (Death Singer #1) – Nan Higgins

3.5* - When I reviewed Nan Higgins's debut novel, London Undone, I wrote that it felt as if the author had crammed a lot of things in just one story, as if she had so many things to say that she couldn't choose. I got almost the opposite feeling with The Mortician's Daughter, which felt … Continue reading The Mortician’s Daughter (Death Singer #1) – Nan Higgins

Wild Things – Karin Kallmaker & Abby Craden (narrator)

This book is special to me. Karin Kallmaker is one of the first lesfic authors I ever read, and this specific book is the first lesbian romance I translated. I don’t remember reading it since, and listening to this story so many years later, masterfully narrated by Abby Craden, was a whole new and captivating … Continue reading Wild Things – Karin Kallmaker & Abby Craden (narrator)

The Lesbian Billionaires Club (TLBC #1) – K.C. Luck & Senn Annis (narrator)

K.C. Luck is one of a few authors I followed on social media before reading any of their books. A comment here and there caught my attention, something in the way they express themselves made me want to know more. So this is my first book by Luck. Also, I've been thinking recently that I … Continue reading The Lesbian Billionaires Club (TLBC #1) – K.C. Luck & Senn Annis (narrator)

To the Moon and Back – Melissa Brayden

I love Melissa Brayden’s books because they’re often fluffy and profound at the same time. They touch delicately on challenging topics (family, anxiety, imposter syndrome…). They seem lighthearted and happy, and they are, but they’re also more than that. And I’d do well to remember that because as much as I enjoy the joyful feelings … Continue reading To the Moon and Back – Melissa Brayden

As Long As Love Lasts – Jea Hawkins & Lori Prince

Pets. Some people have cats (I have two), some have dogs. Some even have chinchillas. Marty Bell had an elephant. And that’s not even what’s most surprising about her story. When her wife Brooke inherited her great-aunt Marty's farm in upstate New York, Peyton Kennedy thought they'd sell it and go back to their life … Continue reading As Long As Love Lasts – Jea Hawkins & Lori Prince
