How to Find a Good Book
« on: May 21, 2018, 10:49:29 am »
If you are looking for a good book with a transgender main character, where would you look? Are there any good book lists out there?

I like fantasy novels, but a word search for "transgender fantasy" pulls up a lot of books that can better be described as rape fantasies, and that is not what I am looking for. I'm not necessarily looking for romance novels either.

Try Dreadnought by April Daniels. The author is trans and its done really well.

There's also a sequel.

I've not read these and they are not fantasy, but I've seen other trans people reccomend these
