    There are certain books classified as classics that are important in lesfic Forrest s name comes up a lot because she was writing lesfic before many others At least lesbian books that weren t considered pulp, that had horrible endings This is a classic lesbian romance, that if you changed a few things, could be written today And considering this was published when I was 1 years old, that s pretty good.The main characters do fall in love very quickly, but what I like about it was its sensuality We don t see that often in books any The touching and stroking and kissing, that doesn t just lead to sex, but is done because you love a person It was nice to read And overall I thought the sex scenes were pretty well written for 1983.I do wish there wasn t a rape scene It s not overly horrific, but I wasn t expe...

    I love Lex Kent s idea of starting a Fallback Friday read This one is one that I ve been wanting to read for a while, but life kept getting in the way and it just kept falling further down on my to read list I m sorry I put it off so long Set in 1978, I expected it to be a little dated, but it really wasn t I mean aside from the women smoking cigarettes and a joint , and a bit of dialogue, this could have been set today Mostly, the main things that stuck out to me as dated was just the treatment of women in the workplace Unfortunately, that s still going on to some degree, but not nearly as much as it was back then I m thankful for women who pioneered the way before us to make our lives easier as out lesbians, and out lesbians in many workplaces too.It s a sweet, tender coming out story for two women, with lots of secrecy which was very normal for the time Hell for me, the tender touches and kisses were even erotic than reading a Meghan O Brien novel Yes, the I love you came quick, bu...

    3.5 stars.It s interesting that almost nothing really told me this is a 40 year old book Yes, smartphones are not around and certain attitudes are but the book doesn t really mention anything out of date we don t use or experience today The writing is stiff at times, especially in dialogue but it comes off as real as if people felt less need to sugarcoat the realities of life But at the same time, the notion of love feels idealized, less jaded than what we read in books of today.As other reviewers have already mentioned I really enjoyed the sensuality and intimacy of their budding relationship No clothes are torn down in this read, only ...

    Nothing interesting can possibly happen in a cabin full of women So ends the first chapter of Curious Wine, Katherine Forrest s classic novel of the early 80 s in which 6 women bring their personal issues to a beautiful Tahoe cabin for a weeks skiing in an era when encounter groups were in, padded shoulders were the norm and lesbian romance was definitely still in the closet.Diane is depressed about breaking up with her boyfriend As she meets the group she instantly bonds with the gorgeous but cool Lane, high powered lawyer with a trail of downtrodden men The remaining four women are led by Liz, the angry and bullish first wife , Chris her uptight and narrow minded spinster sister, Millie the aging hippy and Madge who s too scared of the truth to find out if she is being betrayed Add into the mix a large quantity of alcohol and some grass a meltdown is bound to happen.Needless to say the encounter games don t go to well, feelings of pain and anger get out of hand and rather than bonding the group ends up hurting each other with truths they don t want to know Out of which the sensitive Diane reaches out to Lane for comfort One thing leads to another and suddenly they are on the verge of a sexual encounter Let me start by saying I LOVE THIS BOOK Yes its short and obvious and so unrealistic. but i love the characters, the story is so sweet, and i can fogive the dated games, clothes and behaviour because of what it represents.Curious Wi...

    This is the second library book I ve read in a long time Second library book since I moved And, oddly enough and unexpectedly, both include a wlw or f f plot line One has that as the main theme this book other has that as a subplot Mira Grant s Into the Drowning Deep.I d like to say something along the lines of this is the oldest lesbian fiction book that was both a romance and one with a happy for now type ending unlike lesbian pulp that I ve read that tended to have unhappy endings, and or if there is a happy ending, it definitely didn t involve two women together at the end Except neither of the main characters though only one has POV are lesbians before meeting each other both show signs of being much likely to being somewhere on the bisexual scale than lesbian as in, both still seem happy with the idea of sex with men, though one might have decided that they are all the way lesbian now the one without POV thoughts, so not sure other though is in the I find men attractive, no woman but for you column Sooo happiest oldest, in publication terms, bisexual fiction Something like that.I really need an f f shelf so I can look for those books Since bisexual fi...

    While set in the very late 1970s, this is a pretty amazing book about two women who meet on a girls camping trip to Tahoe and fall in love The build up to the first time they made love was so tender, honest and incredibly sexy The sex scenes were ...

    I liked this book because it will tell you exactly why women would choose to become lesbians and why that is so much better than the alternative Seriously though, it may seem cheesy today, but what do you expect from lesbian fiction written in the early 80 s That s part of the fun, just the descriptions of the clothes and the party games are so weird and hilarious But you have to see it for what it meant at the time, and consider it a part of women s history I am sure it was a huge milestone at the time to write about a two women discovering each other and c...
