Word Wonder’s TBR Expansion: Books with Transgender and/or Non-binary Main Characters

 

Trans & enby MCs.png

 

Hello friends!

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve added to my recommendations series (since August to be precise) but we all know I was in a slump and when I got out of it I wanted to take things easy and since these posts take A LOT of time and Energy to put together and I really didn’t feel up to writing one at all. Up until a couple weeks ago so good news, WE’RE BACK FOLKS! I’m not going to be making them monthly anymore, these post will happen maybe once every three months or so because of the aforementioned reasons. I’ll stop rambling now and get on with a list of books with non-binary and/or transgender main characters.

Most of these are ownvoices, and I made sure that the ones that aren’t have positive reviews coming from trans folks. That being said, if one with bad representation has slipped, please let me know and I’ll take it off the list.

I will try to include content warnings for as many of them. The ones that I couldn’t find content warnings for will have a (*) in front of their titles.

  1. This is a really great list! I keep meaning to read Anna Marie McLemore because so many bloggers I follow love her and it seems like she writes my type of books (aka magical and queer) so hopefully I’ll get around to her soon. The Brilliant Death also looks very interesting!
