20 Books with Bi Protagonists for #BiVisibilityDay! πŸ’—πŸ’œπŸ’™

Happy Bi-Visibility Day, everyone! Whether you are bisexual or biromantic, allo or aspec, you are loved and you belong inside our cute little bi club.
Bi Visibility Day happens each your on September 23rd ever since 1999 and was created to raise bi awareness and challenge bisexual & biromantic erasure. 2020 will be the 22nd year that we have celebrated bisexual life on 23 September and I hope it will be celebrated for many years to come.
Before moving on to the rest of the post, I want to engage a little further on the topic of biphobia and bi-erasure. Three weeks ago I made a video on my Youtube channel about that topic, including 40+ things you shouldn’t say to bi folks, 40+ things you might have never seen as biphobic before. If you have a moment, please take a look at this video and give it a like. Thank you!

40+ things you SHOULD NOT SAY to a bisexual πŸ’—πŸ’œπŸ’™ | Discussing biphobia and bi-erasure

Now moving on to why I wanted to write this post: Bi folks are often misunderstood, stereotyped and even fetishized. To help people understand it more, but also to share the bi experience, I want to recommend books with characters who identify as bi as they have the same right to exist in stories and be celebrated by booklovers as any other queer identity. Besides, seeing yourself in books is super important and some of you might just be looking for some good bi-books, but it’s also really good to read about identities not your own. So for #BiVisibilityDay, I want to share 20 books with biromantic and/or bisexual protagonists for you to add to your TBR. The following books are books I have read (and loved) myself, and books I really look forward to reading sometime. I have linked the Goodreads links to both the titles and the covers, so it’s easy to navigate. I really hope you find atleast one book that speaks to you, as that means I succeeded at my task of recommending you a good bi-book.

by Claire Kann

In this book the MC discovers she is bi-romantic asexual! We love the asexual rep, as Bi Visibility Day is not just for bisexuals.

The MC is dealing with a lot of internalised queer- and biphobia from standing in the spotlight until she meets a really cute girl who helps her with that.

Queens of Geek
by Jen Wilde

This contemporary is all about geeky stuff and fandoms. Oh, and it’s queer! There is also #OwnVoices autism rep in this book, so even more reason to pick it up!

Radio Silence
by Alice Oseman

I have fallen in love with Alice Oseman’s books, so I have no doubt this book is incredible aswell. One MC, Frances, is bisexual and the other one, Aled, is demisexual. Yes, this post is about Bi-rep, but let’s love the aspec rep too.

We gotta love cute guys who think they are straight figuring out they’re bi, because they fall in love with another cute guy.

The Gilded Wolves
(The Gilded Wolves #1)

This book has been recommended to me so often by now and it also has an autistic MC, but apparently it has a bi MC aswell? I am running out of excuses to not read it,
The Rise of Kyoshi
(The Kyoshi Novels #1)
by F.C. Yee

My favourite Avatar ever is bi and her girlfriend is adorable. That’s what I am gonna say about this book.
Sawkill Girls
by Claire Legrand

Ofcourse this queer YA horror has a bi MC, because if it hadn’t I would have started a riot (I’m joking). The other characters are also super queer and one of the MC’s is asexual!

Six of Crows
(Six of Crows Trilogy #1)
by Leigh Bardugo

Among the six main characters, two of them are bi! I really love how even though their sexuality overlaps, their relationships and love-interests are super different.

Ace of Shades
(The Shadow Game #1)
by Amanda Foody

All I need to say about Levi Glaiyser is that he is cute, he is chaos and he is bisexual. This is one of my favourite book series and he is one of my favourite characters in it.
[my review]
Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh – Paragraphs and Pages
Reign of the Fallen
(Reign of the Fallen #1)
by Sarah Glenn Marsh

The main character of this series is a super powerful and fierce necromancer. She stands her ground and uses her Death-wielding magic to protect her found family. Also, did I mention her girlfriend is adorable?
[my review]
The Disasters
by M.K. England

In no universe ever (hah, space joke) could a book called The Disasters not be fronted by a true disaster bisexual. And yes, he is just as disastrous in trying to save humanity as in his love life.

  1. Hello, I’d like at least twenty more books that look like bi flags, please, because that is FANTASTIC cover design. There are so many amazing books on this list that I also love – Radio Silence, I Wish You All the Best, A Darker Shade of Magic, Sawkill Girls – and so many that I’m excited to read, like Queens of Geek and The Rise of Kyoshi. Thank you for putting together this list of fantastic recommendations! πŸ’–πŸ’œπŸ’™
