Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they come up with a list for us to complete. This week it is Top Ten Books For Readers Who Like Character Driven Novels. I love reading character driven novels so hopefully this won’t be too hard for me to complete!
As ever, click on the book image to take you to Goodreads!
The Rosie Project– Graeme Simsion– I’m so glad that this book is the first in a series, because I absolutely adored the main character. I can’t wait to see how his story continues.
Eleanor & Park– Rainbow Rowell– I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. It’s deeper than you’d think.
The Curious Incident of The Dog in The Night Time– Mark Haddon– This is one of my favourite books by Mark Haddon and possibly one of my favourites ever. The main character is so unique.
Room–Emma Donoghue- This book is another unique read. It looks like it’s going to be completely harrowing and it is in parts, but the character of Jack does inject some much needed humour!
The Help– Kathryn Stockett– I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve included this book in Top Ten lists. This is one of my favourite books of all time. It’s raw, it’s honest, it’s got amazing characters. Just read it!!
Heart Shaped Bruise– Tanya Byrne- Another unique read. This book made me somewhat understand why the character did the awful thing that she did… (I’m so vague! 😉 )
The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry– Rachel Joyce– A beautiful book about an older man’s journey to find his friend.
The Time Traveler’s Wife- Audrey Niffenegger– This book took me a while to get into, but I ended up loving the journey that we went on with the characters.
Tease– Amanda Maciel– This one is interesting because it’s from the point of view of the bully.
Wonder- R.J Palacio- Another wonderful character in a very hopeful book.
