Polyamory Book List

Thought I’d put together a list of books on Polyamory that I have read or need to read, since that is kind of a niche topic and one I enjoy reading about!

Links go to reviews if I have written one, Goodreads if I have not. I’ll only be including books I’ve read unless otherwise noted. This list is definitely a work in progress, and I will totally take suggestions!


The Harrad Experiment by Robert H. Rimmer (probably my favorite fiction about polyamory so far.)

Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein (not my favorite, but kind of a classic.)

Next Year, For Sure by Zoey Leigh Peterson

Ask Me About Polyamory: The Best of Kimchi Cuddles (this is actually a book of comics; I haven’t read the actual book, but I adore her comics and read them online!)


Many Love: A Memoir of Polyamory and Finding Love(s) by Sophie Lucido Johnson

The Jealousy Workbook: Exercises and Insights for Managing Open Relationships by Kathy Labriola (incredibly helpful!)

More Than Two by Franklin Veaux and Eve Rickert

The Ethical Slut: A Practical Guide to Polyamory, Open Relationships and Other Adventures by Dossie Easton and Janet W. Hardy

Polyamory in the 21st Century: Love and Intimacy with Multiple Partners by Deborah Anapol
