Advanced Review Copies are an essential tool of every author and reviewers arsenal: Authors need readers to shout about their books, and you want to shout about the books you love! It’s a match made in heaven!
Not all of the sites are exclusively WLW and lesbian content, however I have made sure that each of these sites has the option to filter or search for LGBT books. That way you can be certain that you are getting the books you want to read and promote.
This is where authors go to build buzz about their books. That’s why you can find awesome titles that are often months away from publication.
Mainstream and boutique independent publishers are looking for readers to build excitement about books they love. This means you get to find those books and read them completely free!
Booksprout has a super simple app and is free and easy for authors to use; this means there are hundreds of books for you to choose from.
All you have to do is pick a category or genre you like, scroll through the books and choose one to download. BAM you have a free book! Now, all that’s left is enjoying a great book and leaving that review. What could be sweeter?
Why not go straight to the source and get review copies right from the publisher? Now every lesbian and WLW publisher makes it this easy to become a registered reviewer.
Then, once the admin is done, you can sit back and wait for the latest titles to come to your inbox for absolutely nothing.
BookSirens is a fab way to not only find your next freebie but also grow your reviewer platform!
You can get followers, refine your preferences, and get a massive boost to your social media and book blog. This site is ideal if you want to share your reviews with even more readers.
As well as a whole bunch of free books and regular giveaways, YourNewBooks.com also has a read and review section.
You can sign up for as many genres as you like, including LGBT, browse the books in your chosen genres and download the ones you like.
This is a great site to start out on as there is only a request for an Amazon review, so what’s holding you back? Go and get started!
If you are a reader that is desperate to go that bit extra then this is the site for you!
Are you dying to correct that one type you found? Desperate to let the author know how you feel about the mother-in-law character, or noticed a plot hole? Then you could be a Typo Killer or a Beta Reader!
Just here for the Review Copies, no problem, they have you covered. You can browse LGBT books to root out the ones you want and unfortunately, they are few and far between, but you will get alerts.
PLUS they have a books slot machine where you can win a book. No. Really. They do. Check it out.

About Niamh Murphy
Hi there! I’m Niamh Murphy and I’m a bestselling author of adventure books with lesbian main characters!
I tell romantic and exciting stories of gripping adventure and epic fantasy. My favourite places to explore are historical settings, science fiction landscapes, and fantasy worlds. My stories involve exciting characters such as knights, pirates, vampires, and mermaids. But I also tell more down-to-earth stories involving teenage angst, coming out, and exploring lesbian relationships for the first time.
I most enjoy rewriting fairy tales for the modern reader or re-telling mythical stories of old with a sapphic twist. But whatever the genre I choose to write in, my stories always include romance, love, and a lesbian main character.
