Birthday Post: Bi-Girls in SFF


I’m a terrible blogger! I completely missed my first anniversary this month! I thought it was in July? Doh!

Anyway, to mark that, along with it being the last few days of Pride month and the fact that today is my birthday(!) here’s a very self-indulgent post.

I want to read more books with bisexual protagonists/ significant characters… but I’m not that keen on contemporary fiction, which is where it seems most common (although common is a bit misleading).

So here’s a list of bisexual girls in SFF. It’s by no means comprehensive. I’ve marked any that I’ve already read/ reviewed but the rest aren’t necessarily recs. Most are my TBR, but hopefully, by this time next year, I’ll be able to tick a lot of them off.  🙂

Have you read any of these? Have any others you’d recommend? Drop me a comment.

Books I’ve read

Ash // Malinda Lo // My review – ★★☆
Ash (protagonist)

Failure to Communicate // Kaia Sønderby // My review – ★★★★★
Xandri Corelel (protagonist)

Not Your Sidekick // C. B. Lee // My review – ★★★★
Jess Tran (protagonist)

Of Fire and Stars // Audrey Coulthurst // My review – ★★★☆
Princess Amaranthine aka. Mare (protagonist)
