Top ten sapphic love stories

Lily Lindon is a writer and editor living in London. She studied English Literature at Cambridge University, where she was involved with the Footlights comedy group. She was an Editor at Vintage, Penguin Random House, before joining the creative writing school The Novelry.

Her novels are Double Booked and My Own Worst Enemy.

At the Guardian Lindon tagged ten "books that affirm that Sapphic love can be one of life’s greatest pleasures." One title on the list:
I Kissed Shara Wheeler by Casey McQuiston

McQuiston writes brilliant New Adult romantic comedies with punchy concepts, adorable characters and delightful dialogue and this is my absolute favourite. A month before high school graduation, the perfect principal’s daughter kisses three people and disappears, leaving behind pink letters with clues to her whereabouts. Her academic rival is determined to be the one who finds her – to prove she’s cleverer, of course, not because she’s secretly in love with her.
