Two sisters' reviews of Young Adult and Middle Grade books, inspired by their lovely library.
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish blog. This week’s theme is Top Ten Best Character Driven Novels. This was a hard list for me to write, and I’m not entirely sure if all of these books would actually count as character-driven, but they are all good nonetheless. Unfortunately with my busy schedule and Kate’s unwillingness to do anything blog related, we were not able to post a Top Ten Tuesday list last week.
10.) A Company of Swans by Eve Ibbotson
9.) Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
8.) The Princess and the Hound by Mette Ivie Harrison
7.) Girl With A Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier
6.) Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
5.) Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
4.) Paper Towns by John Green
3.) The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner
2.) The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
1.) The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
Are character-driven novels ones you enjoy, or do you like plot-driven novels better? For me, it entirely depends on the book — I loved The Time Traveler’s Wife, but was slightly bored with the slow plot of A Company of Swans.
