Top 5 Character Driven Books

Top 5 Tuesday

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Bionic Book Worm. Click here for July topics.

Before I could choose my top 5 character-driven books, I had to find out what that was 😉

Character driven books have characters are the focus through deeds and emotions more than the plot.

To Kill a Mockingbird By Harper Lee- One of my personal favorites. I’ve read it several times. The characters are rich as is the setting. A true classic.

The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan – This pulls the reader into the lives of a group of Chinese Americans, allowing us to see a glimpse of their lives and relationships with their daughters.

The Joy Luck Club: A Novel

The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd- Another book centering on the lives of a group of women. This one set in rural South Carolina.

The Martian by Andy Weir- the only book on my list centering on a male protagonist. Also, the only one focused on a single character for much of the book. It’s incredible.

Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg- Can I just say I love this book and fried green tomatoes.

Read one, read them all. You won’t be disappointed.
