Wrap-up: February 2020

February was #FFFeb, so we both challenged ourselves to only read sapphic books for the whole month. Which was, to a degree, successful. Which means what you see here is every single book we read this month.

It’s also the first month I think ever that I (Anna) have watched less things than Charlotte… Let’s please all give her a round of applause!
