Top Ten Character Driven Novels

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! Yes, I acknowledge that this is late.

1. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas - I read this book way back when it came out, and I love it. The characters are majorly important, especially since the main character is fairly unreliable at first.

2. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin - Mara is insanely unreliable. She tells the reader that at the very beginning, and I often associate that with character drivenness.

3. All the Truth That's In Me by Julie Berry - This story is very original. The main character doesn't talk, and with so much of it in her head, it really shows a lot of the story through her perceptions of other characters and their actions.

4. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater - Specifically The Dream Thieves. The first two books are major character centered. I've read an ARC of the third one, and it becomes more plot centric, but the first two books are really for getting to know the characters.

5. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell - This story is not plot heavy. It is really about these two teenagers who are slowly falling in love. Also, my mom *might* have made fun of me when I called the book historical fiction. It takes place in the 80s! It takes place before I was born!

6. We Were Liars by e. Lockhart - This book put me through the wringer. I did not see the end coming, but the entire novel is there because of the main character.

7. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith - This takes place, for the most part, over twenty-four hours. Mostly on a plane ride. This is super fun, and romantic in a way that everyone will love.

8. From What I Remember by Stacey Kramer and Valerie Thomas - This book exists because one of the character's laptop's got stolen. If not for that, nothing would have happened, but somehow, all these random high school students ended up in Mexico and hilarity ensued.

9. The Selection by Kiera Cass - This series majorly depends on which girl Prince Maxon chooses, easily making it character driven.

10. Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles - A super fun read that has diverse characters that really push the plot forward.

What are your favorite character drive novels?
