This Week In Lesbian Book Reviews

Welcome to Literally Lesbian, the book review blog dedicated to connecting authors and readers of lesbian literature!

Let's start with a quick tour of lesbian book reviews out this week.

After Ellen's Heather Aimee O'Neill reviewed two new releases and a classic. To read her full review, head to Across the Page: April 09.

First the new titles:

The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters

Now, don't hate me for this, but I didn't exactly adore Fingersmith. Still, O'Neill's review certainly has me considering adding Waters' latest title to my nightstand collection.

"As with Waters’ previous novels, The Little Stranger weaves a plot that continues to surprise. From the beginning, the story takes on new twists and the reader can’t help but turn a suspicious eye on all of the characters — including the house itself."

My Life With Stella Kane by Linda Morganstein

"My Life With Stella Kane is an entertaining look into Hollywood during the fifties and the pressure actors experienced to stay in the closet. In many ways, the rules here don’t seem all that different from today’s rules — one of the book’s subtle but effective ideas."

Aquamarine by Carol Anshaw

"Carol Anshaw’s innovative novel, Aquamarine, is a storyabout fate and circumstance."

Thinking about adding one of the books discussed at Literally Lesbian Book Review to your reading list? Please consider clicking through the links on this page. You'll pay the same low Amazon price, but a portion of the cost will go toward supporting this blog - buying books, paying reviewers, and supporting lesbian authors!
