#5OnMyTBR – 5 Books with Asexual Characters

Hullo everyone!

In case you still don’t know what #5OnMyTBR is, it’s a bookish meme hosted by E. @LocalBeeHunter’sNook and you can learn more about it here. It occurs every Monday when we post about 5 books on our TBR. Come share with us your a piece of your ever increasing TBR 💕

This week I’m really excited because we got a Free Pride Day and I’ve decided to share with you some of the books on my TBR that feature asexual characters! I even stopped myself from putting these on last week’s post lmao I’ve been waiting for this post ever since I saw the free prompt 💖

Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann

This is probably the first book with a clear asexual character I added to my TBR, but I have yet to read it. This book has a biromantic asexual character which is exactly what I identify as, so I really want to read it once I have the opportunity! I also just found out that it’s currently at $2.99 on Kindle so I now have it on my library.

Radio Silence by Alice Oseman

I discovered Alice Oseman like two months ago and let me tell you I fucking love her. I’ve only read Heartstopper, but I really liked her representation there. This book even has a character that I already know and love, which is also why I’m excited. I love reading and discovering more about the side characters I love from other stories.

Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody

A recent addition to my TBR, I had not heard about this book before but when I read the synopsis I thought I definitely had to read it some time. However, I have not much to say for the same reason tht I haven’t heard about it before!

Loveless by Alice Oseman

I know, another Alice Oseman book? But look. I love her and I want to see what she will do to my heart with this book. I have this book preordered and really hope I’m able to receive it with no problems!

Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand

I remember I saw this book cover several times, on several lists, on Pinterest, and while it catched my attention I ended up never looking it up on Goodreads. And what a mistake that was, I read the synopsis and thought Why is this not on my TBR yet? I’ve read reviews from people on the ace spectrum and it seems to be a relatable read as well.


Now, I’m going to admit and say that I cheated and went looking for recommendations for books because as much as I would love to already had these on my TBR, it’s a little hard to find books with main asexual characters! Probably because I don’t know how to look for them and because I hadn’t seen the community talk about them. But I have to say that I couldn’t have this list without them, as they are the ones that provided many recommendations when I actually asked for them!

Do you have any other recommendation for me?

  1. Amazing list, Nikkie!! I loved Radio Silence and I’m planning to read Loveless as well! I haven’t read many books with ace rep but one of the main characters of Tarnished Are the Stars
    by Rosiee Thor is ace/aro and there’s an important ace/aro character in Our Dreams at Dusk by Yuhki Kamatani! ❤ Also, I think one of the mains of Hullmetal Girls by Emily Skrutskie is ace/aro?
