Top 10 Books For Readers Who Like Character Driven Novels

Top Ten Books For Readers Who Like
Character Driven Novels
(Feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

Sometimes the setting sets the pace of the novel, determining mood and tone.  Sometimes a story is plot driven, often fast paced and in a hurry.  And sometimes an author focuses on the characters. There is still setting, and there is still plot, but they are secondary to developing well-rounded, "real" characters that you love or love to hate. 

Here are a few of my favorites :)

1) The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

2) Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

3) The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson

4) Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

5) If I Stay by Gayle Forman

6) Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

7) Paper Towns by John Green


8) Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco X. Stork


9) How to Say Goodbye in Robot by Natalie Standiford


10) We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

Happy reading!

  1. Good choices! I haven't read any of these yet, but I've heard good things about most of them, particularly regarding characterization. I plan to read Fangirl, Code Name Verity, and possibly several others. Marcelo in the Real World is completely new to me - I'll have to check that out!
