Hello fellow bookworms 💕 It’s time for another Top Five Wednesday, which is a weekly meme which was created by Lainey and is now hosted by Sam! This week’s topic is Favorite F/F Couples! (Note by Sam: this isn’t specifically cis lesbian couples, but also applies to couples that include bi women, trans women, pan women, ace women, etc.) This week is actually the only week I will be participating, because the next two topics aren’t for me, as I don’t read a lot of romance novels and have already talked about Urban Fantasy books I like.
Nevertheless, I was really excited for this week’s topic, as F/F couples seem to be underrepresented in YA compared to M/M couples, which is why I definitely wanted to participate. Sadly, I haven’t read too many books that feature F/F couples, which is something I want to change, so I also included a few books that I want to read in the future, because it’s important to support them!
1. Grace & Eva (How to make a Wish) 💕This book generally is so underrated, you should definitely check it out! How to make a Wish is about Grace (who is bisexual) and her struggles with her emotionally abusive mother, who keeps switching between boyfriends and disrupting her life. When she is back in her town, she meets Eva, who was taken in by her best friend’s family and both girls grow closer together. I loved seeing them get to know each other and spending lots of time talking. Each girl has a lot to deal with Grace with her mother and Eva with the grief she is coping with. Things are complicated, but I love that both girls still find together, no matter how difficult everything becomes. Therefore, I really enjoyed reading about Grace and Eva and would highly recommend the book!

2. Charlie & Alyssa (Queens of Geek) 💕 You should know by now that I absolutely loved Queens of Geek, because it was such a heartfelt story about fandom, anxiety, friendship and so much more. Charlie is one of the two narrators and an openly bisexual Youtuber, who recently starred in a popular indie movie. Throughout the course of the book she falls head over heels for her crush & YouTube idol Alyssa, who is also attending the convention at which the book takes place. However, Charlie’s crush is not one-sided like she thought and so both girls end up falling for each other. Their romance is super cute and I was totally rooting for them! Alyssa makes Charlie realize a few things and in the end there is a happy ending for both of them!

3. Vivia & Stix (Windwitch) 💕 I have to admit that they are not a canon couple and their relationship is just unfolding, but I really like what I have seen of their romance so far. Vivia is one of the main characters and has a POV in Windwitch, which is the sequel to Truthwitch. Stix is her right hand (or something, it has been a year since I read said book right when it came out) and both have known each other for a very long time, therefore they also trust each other. Towards the end of the book there is a short kiss scene, which has me hoping that we will see more of their beginning romance in the next book, because as of right now they are not a couple. However, I do see potential for them to grow closer in book 3. Both are two kick ass witches, so they would make a great power couple!
4. Nicole Haught & Waverly Earp (TV) 💕 I have to admit that I haven’t watched all of Wynonna Earp yet (but it’s seriously so good, you should watch it!), but I had to include these two, because they are so cute together. Waverly’s ex-boyfriend was super annoying, so I’m very glad that she meet and fell in love with Nicole, because she’s so much better and actually values her. I haven’t watched far enough to see a lot more of their relationship, but I’m very much looking forward to it! Now that my semester is over, I should finally have the time to binge-watch Wynonna Earp!
