9 Books with Bisexual Female Characters

9 books with bisexual female characters

In this post, I will talk about 9 books with bisexual female main characters: 3 books I have read and loved, 3 books on my tbr and 3 books releasing soon. I haven’t read that many books with bisexual characters, but it’s something that’s important to me and I will definitely be reading more books with bisexual female characters in the future.

3 BOOKS I HAVE READ 

The book that inspired this list is How to Make a Wish by Ashley Herring Blake, I think the way in which  Grace’s bisexuality is described in the book feels real and honest and the way her bisexuality is treated and viewed by other characters as something normal is so meaningful. here’s my full review.

I recently read Not Your Sidekick by C.B. Lee and the main character in this books is not only a bisexual girl, she is also biracial. Sadly, it’s not that easy to find positive representation of a bisexual, biracial girl, so I think this book is so incredibly important.

Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova is especially important to me, because the main character is not only bisexual, she is latinx like me. Fantasy is one of my favorite genres and finding a fantasy book that I can relate to means so much to me.

3 BOOKS ON MY TBR 

I’m so excited to read Keeping her Secret by Sarah Nicolas, it sounds like Parent Trap (the movie with Lindsay Lohan, which I have watched countless times and loved it all of them), but instead of sisters the girls like each other and one of them is bisexual. I think that’s all I need to say about it.

I have heard so many good things about Ash by Malinda Lo from Riley @RileyMarie that I can’t wait to read it. Also, I love retellings and more when the main character in the retelling is bisexual.

Not Otherwise Specified by Hannah Moskowitz has a black, bisexual female main character that has an eating disorder.  Finding a book like that it’s so rare that I can’t wait to read it. I’m so happy this book exist.

3 BOOKS RELEASING SOON 

27 Hours by Tristina Wright sounds amazing, the synopsis is great but the fact that it has a bunch of queer teens in space saving the day has me really excited to read it.

Noteworthy by Riley Redgate has a bisexual, Asian-American female main character and it has accapela and I’m intrigued by that. I love books where there’s music and I want to see how they incorporate the accapela into the book.

Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde sounds amazing, I have heard the representation is spot on and I know it includes not only a bisexual female character, but also positive representation for autism (this is #ownvoices).

Have you read any of these books? did you enjoy them? Are you planning on reading any of them? Do you have recommendations for books with bisexual female characters?

    1. The only person I ever heard talking about this book is Riley and she mentioned in her videos that the main character is bisexual, so that’s the only thing I knew. I don’t know how I feel about Malinda Lo’s answer, I’m gonna have to think about it. Thanks for letting me know.

  1. Awesome list! I haven’t read any of these, but I’ve also heard good things about Ash. And I’m really looking forward to 27 Hours because not only does it have queer rep, it has disability rep too! The only book I can remember having a possibly bisexual female character was Winterspell, but it was never explicitly stated that she was bisexual. She just seemed to have feelings and interest in both males and females.

  2. Great list! 😀 I really want to read How to Make a Wish and Not Your Sidekick, I’ve heard endless praise for both books haha I started Labyrinth Lost last month but got distracted, I hope I could pick it up again soon hehe so glad to see you fully represented in LL ❤ I read Noteworthy and it was amazing & hilarious! I can't speak for the bi rep (people say it was spot on and nuanced) but the MC is Chinese-American and the representation of Asian family was pretty amazing. I could totally relate hahaha
