Best Lesbian Books Fiction
For some rewarding lady-love books, try these lesbian classics
In Suzanne Rindell's novel The Other Typist, old-fashioned Rose falls into a dangerous obsession with the glamorous Odalie. For some happier lady-love endings, try these lesbian classics:
Valencia - Michelle Tea
A true(ish) account of a year spent among the women of San Francisco’s Mission District: radical Marta, tormented poet Willa, beautiful but dramatic Iris, and Iris's ex, the fantastically-named Magdalena Squalor. The most badass, punk-rock queer book ever written.
Tipping the Velvet - Sarah Waters
Orphaned pickpocket Sue sets out to scam the rich and trusting Maude – but matters get complicated when they fall in love. You can’t beat a good bit of melodrama, particularly when the baddies get their comeuppance and Maude and Sue have a nice snog.
Annie on My Mind -- Nancy Garden
A sweet, safe story of two high school girls who fall in love. A minister in Kansas publicly burned this 1980s teen novel on its publication – give it a read just to spite him.
The Price of Salt - Patricia Highsmith
While working in a toyshop, naïve Therese develops a crush on elegant older woman Carol – but Carol is going through a messy divorce, and could lose custody of her daughter if the courts find out about her relationship with Therese. Not a blissfully happy ending, but pretty progressive for the time.
Best Lesbian Erotica - Various
This anthology series has been running for 18 years (and counting), and every single year the stories are more daring, beautiful, and -- of course -- downright smutty than before.

Well, this probably won't do you any good because you said you already read a lot. But my friend misunderstood and gave me a list of BOOKS instead of FILMS. Sheesh. So, for whatever it's worth...here are her book reviews. I've got her working on a video list now (I hope). (The item numbers are from Good Vibrations.)
AFTER MIDNIGHT: TRUE LESBIAN EROTIC CONFESSIONS
This title I liked because it had diversity - not all butch on femme (zzzzzzzz) action and not all tranny boi action like so many tomes seem to have as the current 'cause celebre', some older couples which was REALLY nice
