As for lists of actual bisexual books may I suggest people start with relatively easy stuff such as the Finalists in the “Bisexual” category(s) in the Lambda Literary Awards (since 2006 only, they didn’t let us in before that):
Book lists & articles from various Bisexual sites:
We also tag any bisexual books when we review them.

What if the one you love can’t love you back?
For anyone who has ever wanted to be more than just friends.
Pretend You Love Me by Julie Anne Peters
“She wasn’t mine, Not now. Not yet. But someday. Some way. I’d make her love me, the way I loved her.”
Just finished reading this book. Learned a lot of lesson in here.. A must read book.. 👍👌👏📖
Ah yes, this book! It’s funny sort of book, at least in the context of most YA coming out stories, with most of the coming out being the main character getting over her own internalised homophobia. And I am really pleased with the ending. Anyway, we’ve got a full review here.
Including Australia, Canada, England, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Middle East, New Zealand, and 25 US states.
At some point we’ll have to do an adult booklist as well.
…some day when we have nothing to do. Make that some week :D
Two new artworks in the GoodLesbianBooks Zazzle store this week! The posters are linked below, but you can find the designs on lots of different things.
This one was inspired by the Lesbians in Space book list, a mix of starry eyed and starry skied romance, and slightly over the top science fiction. Basically, while it’s not obviously ‘bookish’, it was probably what I’d paint for the cover of the genre.
This was a more graphic design-ish work. Rainbows for LGBTQness, and a quill for writing with.
You can find more lesbian themed posters from across Zazzle and Amazon here.

I can personally recommend Dayna Ingram’s book, Eat Your Heart Out.

There will be a new Strangers In Paradise story next year for 2013—the 20th anniversary of SiP. You’ll have to wait until then to find out what America’s cutest couple has been up to, but one thing I can tell you, they’re very clean.
*marks diary for 2013*
(If you haven’t heard of Strangers in Paradise - it is the most fantastic graphic novel series featuring beautiful art, amazing and complex characters and lesbian/bisexual leads. It was self-published by the artist/author and did really well. I highly recommend it to everyone).
May will hopefully see reviews posted for Far From Xanadu by Julie Anne Peters, Lunatic Fringe by Allison Moon, Water Logic by Laurie J. Marks, and Liar by Justine Larbalestier.
On the to-read list are The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth (it was due back at the library yesterday -_- ), When Women Were Warriors by Catherine M. Wilson, and the seven or eight requests sitting in our email.
We’re also updating some of the older posts and reviews from this time last year, which aren’t up to scratch and are thus too embarrassing to stay.
For a full list of stories we’ve reviewed, see The List of Book Reviews.
