The 10 Best Bisexual Romance Novels You Should Have Read Already By Now!

Are you looking for a timeless bisexual romance? Are you a fan of queer erotica? Does a cute rom-com make you feel like a marshmallow? We have the right book for you for every mood. Read on!

Did you know that books with same-sex romance date back to around 380 BC? Yes! Plato’s Symposium, which was penned down around 385-370 BC, describes same-sex relationships.

Recently, with increasing awareness of the LGBTQIA+ community, many literary works have represented queer people. In this article, you will find an assorted collection of bisexual romance novels from across the globe.

We have collected books representing bisexual people from many cultures around the world. Hop on as we travel with the characters from South Korea, rural Georgia, Brazil, and London. Whichever part of the world you are from, we are sure you will feel seen in these books.

In these stories, the protagonists explore their sexuality while dealing with other problems like race, gender, fat-phobia, press scrutiny and much more. Cause that’s how life is. It does not give you just one issue to deal with.

Discovering one’s sexuality never happens in isolation. It is informed, among other things, by the religion you belong to, your family, the country you live in and your race.

One of our favorite things in these books is that despite the added layer of queerness, romance is the same as in any love story. The butterflies, longing, jealousy, the perfect first kiss, and tender lovemaking are all there. Bisexual romance is romance. Much like the best bisexual movies, the stories show that no matter whom you love, it’s love at the end of the day.

All labels crumble in the face of a feeling as strong as love. They also painfully show how gender and sexuality policing can wreak havoc on a person’s self-identity. There are a lot of characters who live way too long in denial and dysmorphia.

Seeing them go through life denying their identity and happiness is heartbreaking. On the other hand, some characters are completely comfortable with their sexuality. They own it with grace. We are also given a peek into the families of the protagonists.

Some families accept and completely support them, waving bisexual flags and wearing bi pride merch, while others struggle to understand what bisexuality means or repress their bisexual identity and will go to any length to “make” them straight. And a few fall somewhere in between. This makes these books a must-read for people who identify as bisexual and for their families as well.

So what are you waiting for? Let us join the characters on their beautiful journeys of love, loss, laughter, heartbreak, discovery, acceptance and joy.

The Color Purple

The Color Purple gives us a peek into the lives of black women in rural Georgia during the early twentieth century. The protagonist, Celie, is abused and impregnated by her father at a very young age! Then she is married and lives with her no better husband.

Her first taste of happiness and passion is when she meets Shug Avery. Shug is a singing sensation that passes from town to town, performing at local restaurants and bars. Shug completely smites Celie’s husband, and they always get together when she is in town. Celie can hear them having sex in the other room! And that’s how Celie meets Shug.

But there is no rivalry between the two, at least not for long. Shug gives Celie the courage to explore her body and pleasure. A tender, sensual relationship develops between them. Shug’s love is transformational to Celie. Shug is bisexual in the book, but we are not sure Celie is.

Being mistreated by men all her life could be why she never loved a man. This book portrays bisexuality as it is- it is not over-explained or exaggerated. It is just accepted. And that is profound.

The book is written as letters- from Celie to God and then from Celie to Nettie. Nettie is Celie’s younger sister, and they are separated very early in the book. Celie writes her letters in the broken English that an uneducated black woman would speak. It’s almost as if Celie were talking to us. If you like feminist literature that is unforgiving, raw and inspiring, this is the book for you!

The Surrender of Julia

Julia is a phenomenal artist from Los Angeles. She seems to have it all, but does she? Julia’s best friend, Carmen, eventually becomes more than a friend. Carmen is a Domme, and she gives Julia something she had only once before- love and security. But Julia’s abusive past precludes her from accepting her feelings for Carmen. Instead, she flees.

Julia always had a hedonistic lifestyle, but she goes deeper into it now. She seduces many men and dominates them in bed to make herself feel better, in vain. Simultaneously, we are taken 13 years into Julia’s past when she was having an erotic affair with a male model, Jake. He was the only one who made her feel the security and comfort she now feels with Carmen.

But back then, too, she fled from her feelings. Back in the present, as she fusses further down the road of self-destruction, she catches the eyes of the Goddess Fate and her Guardian Angel, Daniel. They take her to a place called the Island. She is given a choice- wait here for her next rebirth or go back and fight for Carmen’s love. Which will she do?

Surrender of Julia is a delicious combination of fantasy and feelings. The protagonist is not likable, but as the book reveals snippets from her past, we understand her more. The erotica in the novel is ample, passionate and thoroughly enjoyable. Pick this book up on a lazy winter afternoon to chase away the blues.

She of the Mountains

This illustrated novel has a twin narrative- one is the retelling of a Hindu myth, and the other is the story of a young boy trying to figure out his feelings for a girl. The Hindu myth of creation is reimagined with a focus on the Goddess of Creation, Parvati and the Lord of Destruction, Shiva.

In Hindu mythology, they are a representation of queer. It is told Shiva and Parvati merge to form one person who is neither male nor female. The author might have used them to symbolize the need for removing labels and just letting people be. In the parallel story, the brown boy grows up in a brown neighborhood in Canada, where most people are homophobic.

He is discovering his sexuality as he falls in love with a girl. But everyone around him is telling him that he is gay. He, too, sometimes feels he might be gay, or is he bisexual? Is that why he likes the girl? The book shows the damaging effect labeling and gender policing can have on individuals.

The story is all about understanding who you are and embracing yourself completely, no matter where you fall in the gender and sexuality spectrum.

The author uses a detached narrative style in the book. There are no names given to the non-mythological characters. The abstract illustrations complement the plot and add depth to it. If raw, abstract and emotional stories are your thing, pick this one up!

We All Loved Cowboys

We All Loved Cowboys was written by the Brazilian writer Carol Bensimon and translated into English by Beth Fowler. Cora, who lives in Paris, gets a call from Julia. Julia, calling from Montreal, tells her that she is planning to spend a month in Brazil.

She hints at the road trip they had always wanted to take across their home state of Rio Grande do Sul. It is clear they have a history, and Cora won’t let go of any opportunity to win Julia back. Most of the story happens inside the car with the two characters. The story is told from Cora’s point of view. She is privileged, self-absorbed and overconfident.

While it is easy not to like Cora, the author never mocks her. The plot only tries to understand her personality. We are given a glimpse into how Cora explored her bisexuality by “getting into the backseat” of a car with multiple girls. She is still in love with Julia, but we know little about Julia’s feelings. She is sexually interested, but can it be anything more? 

This is a story of the unrequited love of a bisexual girl from Brazil. The book does not romanticize Brazil, as white writers typically tend to. It only presents the truth- the politics, deserted towns and bleak landscapes. If realism is what you seek, this unusual love story is the right fit for you!
