Top Ten Books For Readers who like Character Driven Novels1. Everybody Sees the Ants
Lucky is one of my favorite protagonists of all time. He's relatable, hilarious, and goes through an incredible journey.
Ryan Dean West may just be my favorite character...ever. He's real, funny, and he seems like a best friend to me.
3. Out of the Easy
Josie Moraine is such a determined character with lots of struggles we can all relate to, and her hope to escape the world she grew up in is sad yet admirable.
Cath. Oh Cath. How I adore you. I found so many relatable points to Cath and fell in love with her as a character.
5. Six Feet Over It
Leigh is very dark, but also very strong. Her story is an inspiration, a very touching ride, with lots of sarcasm and harsh reality to keep it real.
6. Harry Potter
Sorry, but I'm partial to the series. I love every single character that walks in the pages of this series. They are all so developed, and each walk with their own story that they create, not to just add to Harry's. J.K. Rowling is queen!
7. Please Ignore Vera Dietz
Vera Dietz is such a real character. I expect to find her in the little nooks of life and I see her in everyone. She makes a great journey in getting over her friend's death, and it's in the most sad yet genuine way possible.
8. This Song Will Save Your Life
Elise's story is often heartbreaking, but it evokes a certain emotion of pride and happiness for her as well.
Not often is it that characters are so amazingly developed in fantasy or science fiction stories. But Cinder is a talented protagonist, and the way she drives the book is fascinating to read.
10. Just Listen
Annabel and Owen are really great characters in general, and although lots of Sarah Dessen's stories have a similar feel, this one spoke to me the most.
