Recommendations: Books With Non-Binary MCs + My TBR

Hi everyone!

I am so excited about this post, where I will be shining some light on books with non-binary main characters! I am always after more recs, so please comment if you have anymore. 

Note: While I use the term “non-binary” in my title, the characters from these books all use different, personal gender identities and pronouns to express themselves and how they feel most comfortable. For example; genderqueer, enby, gender fluid etc. And a range of pronouns like; they/them, she/they, he/they, she/her, he/him etc and neopronouns like xe/xir/xirself etc.  I have decided to use “non-binary” in my title because I see it as an umbrella term for those on the spectrum.

  1. sadly, I’ve only read I Wish You All the Best from this list. it was great rep though, but I’m not an own voices reviewer. what I can say that it was such a fun but exciting read! I also really want to read Mooncakes if I find a copy because everybody has been raving about it!
