Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke And The Bookish where bloggers and readers create a list of books based on a weekly list theme.

Today’s topic was: Top Ten Books For Readers Who Like Character Driven Novels

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

I only read this book this year, but it’s absolutely perfect and left me with the biggest book hangover to date. It’s not only gripping, but irresistible and I dare you not to fall in love with the characters. Set in WWII its traumatic in not only setting, but through character dynamics. It’s the life of these characters that move you and death (the story’s narrator) alike.

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

A terribly horrible and holds-no-bars look at teenage cancer and the impact that has on oneself, their family and friends, and the community around them. It’s beautiful, but it would be nothing without the strong characters John Green has created.

The Lunar Chronicles Series – Marissa Meyer (Cinder, Scarlet, Cress)

Man I love this series. Not only does it combine some amazing writing, genuine creativity, and a futuristic adaptation of fairy-tales, but each book in the series is centred around one particular iconic fairytale character and explains her/or his position within this new world and the way in which they work together, or don’t work together as the case may be.

 

Just One Day/ Just One Year/If I stay/ Where she Went by Gayle Forman

I couldn’t choose just one of Forman’s books as each and every single one of these is centred  around a moment in time as seen and felt by the characters. Nobody writes characters like Gayle Forman.
