  1. I’ve enjoyed some of the classic lesbian literature I’ve read, like ‘Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit,’ ‘Rubyfruit Jungle,’ and ‘The Color Purple.’ The older YA novel ‘Deliver Us from Evie’ was also surprisingly good. As far as modern stuff, I really like Mariko Tamaki’s graphic novels. I haven’t read any of these yet but I’ve heard some great things about Sarah Waters! 🙂

    1. I will look into Mariko Tamaki more! I only know her through “Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me.” I know she started her own queer graphic novel imprint?! Very excited to read more of the work ^^
      Sarah Waters is great fun. I hope you’ll enjoy her books!
