I just watched Tipping the Velvet....and oh my gosh, it was so good. I wasn't expecting to like it all that much judging by the cover. But I really liked it. It was all about this girl Nan and her coming of age story. Realizing she's attracted to girls and then going on to actually experiencing life, and in the process falling in love. It was set in the late 1800s in Britain. Also, I was so totally enamored/in love with Florance by the end of it :)
I got Tipping the Velvet today from the library. It's about a couple of British lesbians in the 1800s. And I assume, all the shit they have to go through to conceal their relationship. I'm not sure I'll like it, but I'm going to give it a shot. It's the tv/film adaptation, not the book. I also got Lies & Love, but I'm really not digging the main character. She's the complete opposite of me, which is usually okay, I don't need to relate to the characters for me to like them. But she's a really big snob, and I really just don't like the way she comes off.
