Based in the UK and run by The Velvet Lounger, The Lesbian Reading Room reviews short and long fiction for and about lesbians, with attention to works produced in the United Kingdom. That’s right, lots of books with that elegant “u”, a personal favourite of mine.
Readers will find a well-organized search and category structure. LRR’s reviews are generally positive but include what readers felt were flaws. There are also other helpful lists, such as the year’s shortlisted award books and their reviews of them.
The LRR also produces a monthly “upcoming releases” page, and readers can subscribe for free to weekly and monthly email.
Writers wondering what kinds of things savvy readers like and dislike can learn from reading reviews here. If you rely on their reviews, a click to purchase a book through their links will help pay a few of the bills of running the site.
