It’s Bisexual Visibility Week, so what am I commemorating it with? Books.
The answer is always books. I may not be bisexual, but I’m always happy to spread the representation love, so I’ve made a list of some of the books on my TBR shelf with bisexual protagonists!
Some have been released yet, some haven’t, but all are crushing me under the weight of my TBR. But a good kind of crushing, ya know?
Autoboyagraphy by Christina Lauren
Autoboyagraphy follows Tanner, a bisexual boy who is trying to finish his senior year in conservative Utah so that he can be out-and-proud out-of-state. But then he meets Sebastian – a Mormon boy that he catches the hots for.
Even though these books are listed in no particular order, I must say that this is at the top of my TBR right now! I discovered this on Netgalley a couple of months ago and had to physically restrain myself for requesting an e-ARC. Now, I’m so glad I waited so that I can have a nice, pretty physical copy. I’ve hear so many wonderful, swoony things!
Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova
I’M LATE ON THIS ONE. I know. All the hype was going on this time last year but I already had so many books lined up that it kind of fell farther down the list. But I’m hoping to get to it at some point in the future, because I’ve heard such good things. It’s about a witch who has to save her family with magic powers that she hates and put her faith in a boy she doesn’t trust.
My only hesitation with this one is that it involves a love triangle, and as I explained last month, those can be pretty hit-or-miss with me.
Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh
I participated in a BBTC chat on twitter surrounding this book before I even knew what it was about. But after reading some excerpts from it, I was sold. Not only does this feature a bi character, but I’ve heard it’s also a steamy romance… right up my alley.
The blurb is kind of confusing to me, but I think the gist of it is necromancy, the Dead, and zombies. Pretty chill.
Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy
While I’m excited that this book is about a bi girl, I’m especially intrigued by the poverty storyline. That kind of representation can be so rare in YA, so I think I’ll learn a lot from this one! Especially since Ramona’s family struggles began after Hurricane Katrina devastated them – a topic that is especially current after Hurricane Irma in my area and Maria in Puerto Rico.
They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera
And lastly, we have the book that everyone has heard of and wants to read. I can’t wait to read this… as soon as I get in the right head-space. Everyone knows that Silvera lives to emotionally destroy his readers. I AM NOT READY.
This one has two male protagonists – Rufus who is bisexual, and Mateo who is gay. Apparently both are just a gem to read from so I’m so excited!
And there you are! Some bi books to add to your TBR. Appreciate the bisexual people in your life, and if you happen to be one of those people, whether you’re out, not, or still questioning it, I hope you had an awesome Bisexual Visibility Week!
Are you planning to read any of these? Have you already? What did you think of them? Do you have any bisexual recs for me? Tell me in the comments! 🙂
