    1. I can’t wait for this one! You know, I always thought/said that, too. But when I went to confirm for this blog post, I kept seeing things that lead me to believe they are non-binary! So, I just thought it was a safer *blanket* term, but if you find something that says otherwise (not wiki), please, please, please send it my way, sweetheart! I would be more than happy to change it! Also, I hope you’re having the happiest of reading! 💖xx


      1. I had read that (I’ve been following him for a while) and I hope I’m not making a colossal mistake but that strikes me as “I don’t want to out myself or refer myself as a woman” more than “I’m non-binary”? Because he has talked a lot about how his portrayal of Brezan as a trans man in Raven Stratagem meant to him, and because he has never used the term non-binary for himself as far as I know, it doesn’t feel right to me to use it for him unless he asks people to?
        And his official bio on Raven Stratagem still uses he/him pronouns (2017)

        Also I’m sorry if the previous comment came across as rude, I wrote it in a hurry from my tablet


      2. No, you’re fine! I’m at work myself, Hahahaha. But I just took it all out, and I appreciate your time. I think I was just overly paranoid to give them/him a title he/they were resentful having to come out as? I never want to hurt people, and again, I know how fluid sexuality and gender can be. But thank you, and I appreciate you.

      3. That makes sense, it can be read that way and I wouldn’t want to hurt anyone either.
        Anyway, thank you for your time, and I hope you enjoy Dragon Pearl!


  1. I’ll be interested to hear what y’all think! I wasn’t a fan of Yoon Ha Lee’s adult books, but I love the Rick Riordan Presents imprint.

    Also, sorry if you’re seeing a notification for me following you, while reading this post I must have accidentally unfollowed you somehow, lol. I swear I’m not only *just now* following you!
