1. The Enemy Series by Charlie Higson
I feel like I talk about this series in nearly every post, but it’s that good. It’s definitely a character-driven novel, although the plot is really good as well. The characters are interesting and unique and just really fun to read about.
2. The Infernal Devices Series by Cassandra Clare
In this series, you get nearly every major character’s viewpoint at least once. The characters are deep and multi-layered, and the series focuses mostly on them and their relationships with one another.
3. The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
In addition to being one of my favorite classics ever, The Catcher in the Rye is very character driven. Holden is a really compelling character, who makes a lot of bad decisions that drive the plot forward.
4. Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
I would recommend this book to anyone, especially those who enjoy character-driven novels. It focuses on four different characters, all very different from one another, and the choices they make is what moves the plot forward.
5. Every Day by David Levithan
This one is sort of a mix between action-driven and character-driven, although I’d still recommend it as character-driven. The main character’s choices are what drive the plot forward. Some of them are good, some aren’t, which makes for a very interesting story.
6. Winger by Andrew Smith
I just read this one, and it was enjoyable. Definitely character driven. You can read my review here for more information.
Yeah, so those are my top six books for lovers of character-driven novels. Sorry that once again it’s not the full ten. Next week, though, I’m really excited about the theme, so I’m sure I’ll do the full ten. Anyways, thanks for reading! See you tomorrow with a Waiting On Wednesday!
