Lesbiska böcker som ges ut under 2017

Jag kommer ihåg en tid då jag svältfödd letade reda på allt jag kunde hitta som hade något med hbtq-tema att göra. På den tiden blev jag själaglad över Carol och Susan i Vänner och subtext i Xena, warrior princess. Därför blir jag extra glad när jag ser hur utbudet för lesbiska teman ökar i media och böcker. Under första halvåret av 2017 är det roligt att se att det har släppts en mängd böcker om lesbisk kärlek och identitet. Jag har sammanställt en lista över några böcker som kommer att släppas under andra halvåret. Enjoy!

baksidan av boken
Brynn Williams is out of prison, no thanks to Sergeant Kat Vander, who arrested her four years earlier. But Brynn is hopeful for a new future and excited to see her sister, who pulls up in a stolen car, high as a kite. Brynn feels used and trapped as they drive back to more family drama. But something happens on the way home, testing not only Brynn’s core as a human being, but her loyalty to her family as well.

Sergeant Kat Vander is one hell of a cop. She turns heads and leaves suspects shaking in their boots. So when she and her partner are ambushed and shot, the department is up in arms. But more surprising is who helped them after the attack. Brynn Williams belongs to the town’s most troubled family. She helped Kat, but now she’s on the run. Can Kat find her, and more importantly fight her feelings for a known criminal?

baksidan av boken
Captain Suzann Redeker earned a Bronze Star for valor, one of the highest honors given by the Marine Corps. As leader of a Female Engagement Team that patrolled the combat zone, she took out four Taliban insurgents―but not before losing a soldier under her command and sustaining an injury that ended her military career. Now back home in rural Vermont, she’s forced to chart a new life as a civilian.

From their very first kiss, Marleigh Anderhall knows Zann is the woman she is meant to marry. Valiant, dashing―the shining warrior she’s always dreamed would sweep her off her feet. Surely they’ll have all they could ever want―an idyllic life. But then Zann discovers something about that fateful day in Afghanistan that causes her to question her very identity. Would Marleigh still love her if she wasn’t the hero everyone thought her to be?

Bonnie J. Morris
lesbiska bokbloggen

En professor i kvinnohistoria hamnar i en tidsvirvel och åker tillbaka i tiden där hon träffar de historiska kvinnor som hon undervisar om. Släpptes 4 juli.

baksidan av boken
Lonely women's history professor Hannah Stern walks into her local lesbian bar one winter night, seeking love advice from her old friend and bartender, Isabel. "Women's history will be my date this year!" Hannah raises her glass in sarcastic tribute, resigned to life as a scholar, but her remark sets in motion a wild, sexy-smart romp through time. Much to her astonishment, Hannah soon finds herself meeting up with the actual figures and foremothers she assigns her college students to learn about. She's caught in a time-travel vortex: one that seemingly emanates from Sappho's Bar and Grill.

What are these figures of the past trying to tell Hannah? What wisdom do they share? Given the opportunity to ask her feminist role models questions about their lives and viewpoints, what will Hannah say? More importantly, will she find romance with women who loved women in the past? Or will she take a chance on her old friend Isabel, whose drinks and potions seem to hold the secret of time travel itself?

Spinning

Tillie Walden
lesbiska bokbloggen

Grafisk memoar om Tillie Waldens liv som framgångsrik konståkare. Släpps 12 september 2017.

baksidan av boken
For ten years, figure skating was Tillie Walden's life. She woke before dawn for morning lessons, went straight to group practice after school, and spent weekends competing at ice rinks across the state. It was a central piece of her identity, her safe haven from the stress of school, bullies, and family. But over time, as she switched schools, got into art, and fell in love with her first girlfriend, she began to question how the close-minded world of figure skating fit in with the rest of her life, and whether all the work was worth it given the reality: that she, and her friends on the figure skating team, were nowhere close to Olympic hopefuls. It all led to one question: What was the point?The more Tillie thought about it, the more Tillie realized she'd outgrown her passion--and she finally needed to find her own voice.

Visiting Hours

Tagan Shepard
lesbiska bokbloggen

En respekterad och stel professor möter en impulsiv och kaxig läkare. Konflikt och attraktion uppstår. Släpps i augusti 2017.

baksidan av boken
Alison Reynolds knows exactly who she is and what she wants. With a well-established career as a history professor, Alison is professional and, for the most part, strait-laced—the exact opposite of Dr. Jess Baker.

Jess is spirited, impulsive, and confident to the point of cockiness. A promising physician recently transplanted from the West Coast, Jess sticks out in her new home of Richmond, Virginia.

The two clash immediately and often. Jess is infuriating, unprofessional, and altogether too distracting. She also seems to be trying awfully hard to get Alison's attention. The more fate throws them together, the more Alison discovers that while their differences may be exciting, it’s the little ways they're alike that are downright irresistible.
