Bisexual Awareness Week 2017

Hello readers! As you may or may not know, it is 2017 Bisexual Awareness Week from September 17—24! I’m almost out of time (and who knows when this post will even be up!) But in honor of my LGBTQ+ friends and followers, I wanted to do a feature post!

On my Instagram I have a post featuring YA bisexual book recs and some great own voices bi bloggers, you can find it here. And I have a Tumblr post of the same photo, slightly different wording, here. Point is, I’m very eager to support my favorite bloggers and stories!

OKAY, BUT WHY AM I HERE, THEN? You’re probably wondering. Or not, you could just be skimming my words. In that case, hello, I do the same thing, don’t worry.

But I personally wanted to share some quick YA novels featuring bisexual main characters. (All books that are own voices will be noted next to title.)
