Kaniesha's TTT: Ten Books For Readers Who Like Character Driven Novels

Top Ten Tuesday is a book blog meme created and hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week we're choosing the top ten books we believe are character driven.

1. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
2. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
3. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
4. Mind Games by Kiersten White
5. Crash by Lisa McMann

6. The Diviners by Libba Bray
7. The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima
8. Angelfall by Susan Ee
9. Divergent by Veronica Roth
10. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

Bonus: All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terril, The Holders by Julianna Scott, Legend by Marie Lu

All of the books mentioned above are in my all time favorites. Each of them would not be anything without the main characters moving the plot forward. If these characters weren't making their every day decisions, the plot would literally go nowhere.

I honestly think the main point about all of these, is that it's less about characters reacting to things happening to and around them, and more of them dealing with their problems and thoughts by taking action and doing the necessary things.

Do you agree or disagree with any of my choices?


  1. I definitely agree with you on Sereaphina! I can't wait for the second book.

  2. Love character-driven books. And I'm glad you picked some action-packed ones, because I agree that those can be character-driven too.
