Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and love is in the air! So we’re recommending some of our favorite romance reads. These five books – including a 2021 release you definitely need to add to your TBR – highlight bisexual characters in swoon-worthy love stories to have on your shelf!
The Girls I’ve Been by Tess Sharpe – Coming January 26, 2021
Nora is trapped as a bank heist hostage with her ex-boyfriend and her new girlfriend, and we love the evolution of the relationship Nora, Wes, and Ivy have in this upcoming suspenseful thriller. The twisted web of secrets, lies, and murder is MUCH more complex than a love triangle.
Verona Comics by Jennifer Dugan
This heart-warming queer love story set in an indie comic book shop is also a thoughtful depiction of living with anxiety and depression, as Ridley and Jubliee come together amidst their families feuding and Jubliee’s cellist ambitions. We LOVE a contemporary reimagining of the Romeo & Juliet dynamic!
Her Royal Highness by Rachel Hawkins
Running away from her ex-girlfriend, Millie gets accepted to a boarding school in Scotland and finds out she’s living with a literal princess of Scotland. If you love the Disney Channel original movie Princess Protection Program and the rivals-to-lovers trope, this is the queer romance for you!
Odd One Out by Nic Stone
Cooper and Jupiter have been best friends forever when Rae moves into their town, and this contemporary YA explores old friendships and new crushes in Cooper, Rae, and Jupiter’s messy relationship. Stone depicts the nuances of questioning and self-discovery in these realistic characters.
Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh
Odessa, the protagonist of this epic fantasy, is a bisexual necromancer for the kingdom’s ruling Dead who finds love after a tragic loss. The series also features a great cast of queer characters navigating an increasingly dangerous world of beasts, Shades, and mages.
