We're well over half-way through 2021, and with so many outstanding books published mid-lockdown at the beginning of the year, we thought it was good time we hauled them back up and gave them some more well-deserved love.
Bring on 'So Far So Very Good': a series of round-ups of our booksellers' favourite books published so far in 2021.
These are Christina's top picks of titles with excellent bi-visibility:
All the Things She Said by Daisy Jones - a cultural history of contemporary lesbian and bi life! a fun, important, personal and interesting read. this is one of those books that left me with a long list of film, tv and music recommendations. I loved getting to chat to the author Daisy for our event, which you can still watch on the lighthouse website!
One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston - I loved getting to witness main characters Jane and August fall in love on the New York subway. Jane is a real time-travelling butch dreamboat, August’s inner voice is hugely entertaining and relatable, and the book is sexy and smart and filled with a wonderful cast of queer characters, and drag brunches, and a séance.
Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert - bi main character Dani, a burnt out PhD student, enters into a fake relationship with introspective and very hot Zaf. Dani wants them to be friends with benefits, and Zaf wants a happy-ever-after romance. it is VERY steamy and VERY sweet, and underpinned by hibbert’s trademark wry & clever narration.
And here you'll find Christina's full list of recent bi favourites!
