Ah, these wanton women
Review of Wanton Women: When Girls Get It Together - Miranda Forbes by Walowiz

Advantages: Inspiring, memorable, prosaic
Disadvantages: None none none

Why did I buy it: Forever on the hunt for the perfect book on lesbian erotica, I happily stumbled across “Wanton Women: When Girls Get it Together”, by the lovely Miranda Forbes. The book was £2.99 in paperback and as I gently flicked through the pages ... Read review

Not the best book club choice!
Review of Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? - Jeanette Winterson by Calla76

Advantages: Some interesting sections
Disadvantages: Difficult to read in places, too much introspection

January's choice I have recently joined a Book Club, and this was the choice for January 2013. It is a (sort of) memoir by the author Jeanette Winterson, who is a novelist and wrote Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit, which was published back in 1985 ... Read review

Jewrotica!!!
Review of Friday the Rabbi Wore Lace (Jewish Lesbian Erotica) - Karen Tulchinsky by Walowiz

Advantages: Cheap, nice cover illustration
Disadvantages: Not much in the way of actual erotica

Why did I buy it: I’m Jewish. I love women and I am particularly interested in self-confessed GAY Jewish women. It was also cheap (in hardback) and cost only £1.99. No delivery charges, either! Its sounded erotic and I think I can justify reading thi ... Read review

It was Mitch whodunnit - to everyone
Review of The Back Passage - James Lear by Walowiz

Advantages: Graphic, extremely humerous, sexy, there is a plot even
Disadvantages: None

...I buy it: It looked intriguing, the title alone caught my eye and I enjoy a ‘whodunit’ type murder mystery but also like a bit of sexual shenanigans thrown in to liven things up a bit. It seemed the ideal read. I have been off work ill of late ... Read review

Yes, I was up all night, ah yes
Review of Up All Night - Rachel Kramer Bussel by Walowiz

Advantages: Short stories, truly erotic, titillating, true to life, adventorous sex at its best
Disadvantages: I'm not too keen on the butch lesbian presentation

Why did I buy it: It’s a book about lesbian sex, an area which appeals to me, purely from an educational point of view. I am both fascinated and intrigued by this genre and I ordered this particular copy Online for £6.49. It contains only 265 pages bu ... Read review

Alex's constant cock hunt continues
Review of Great Cock Hunt - Alex by Walowiz

Advantages: Easy to read, great if you are gay, I'd imagine, I didn't have to pay for it.
Disadvantages: No plot - does Alex ever find his 'true love' I wonder?

Why did I buy it: I didn’t buy this book. I was given this book by a friend who just happens to be gay. It’s what he terms a ‘lad lust’ book. I am not gay but can perhaps be described as ‘curiously heterosexual’. Nothing wrong with that peeps. I lov ... Read review

A Pretty Wet Collection, really
Review of Wet: True Lesbian Sex Stories - Nicole Foster (Editor) by Walowiz

Advantages: It was going cheap, a bit of titillation
Disadvantages: Stories rather too short and quite contrived and too tame

Why did I buy it: Well why do you think? I was after some bedtime reading and as I’m fascinated by lesbians per se I snapped this up as soon as I saw it in my local The Works. It had an RRP of £8.99 but was on sale for £1.99. It was hardback and it lo ... Read review

I love this book too. I also think it's a bit misleading for Ciao to categorise this as Gay fiction! by jo-1976
Excellent write up. I totally agree that this book shouldn't be simply regarded as a 'lesbian' book. I feel it's a historical novel with a much broader appeal. by ladybracknell

Can kisses be punishment?
Review of Punishment with Kisses - Diane Anderson-Minshall by mum2boys82

Advantages: More risque than a MIlls and Boon story!
Disadvantages: May be too risque for some!

Punishment with Kisses is the 3rd book I have read for my summer reading challenge. The cover of this book informs you that it is a sexual odyssey so I was fairly sure that it was going to be similar to a good ‘Mills and Boon’ read, but probably a bit mo ... Read review
