Q&A: “have you read any books with non-binary characters in them?”
Hey, Vesper, have you read any books with non-binary characters in them? I found several on amazon Kindle, which is super exciting, but I’m also kinda wary of them.
i’m afraid i haven’t had the time or energy to read much of anything for a long while now, so i haven’t read anything with non-binary characters in it apart from webcomics…
i can’t personally vouch for the content of any of these lists, but perhaps these book lists from GoodReads.com and the reviews on them will help you find quality books to read?
- Non-Binary and Genderqueer Characters in YA Fiction
- Non-Binary (Genderqueer, Genderfluid, Gender-Unspecified, etc) Fiction and Memoirs
- Gender Non-Binary Fantasy & Science Fiction
- oh, and: 17 Pathbreaking Non-Binary and Gender-Fluid Novels (not from GoodReads)
i totally understand being wary or apprehensive of reading anything with a supposed non-binary character in it. :/ i’d be inclined to research the book in question as thoroughly as i could before buying it to try and avoid any disappointment or frustration from poorly written/researched books or characters, but i know that finding reviews or information that actually pertain to what you’re concerned about isn’t always possible.
hope you can find some quality books that don’t disappoint you!
