top ten tuesday key

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Broke and Bookish. This week’s theme is our top ten books for people who like (insert theme here)! Mine will be for if you like alternating perspectives.

alternating 1 alternating 2

  1. Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry – This book is a contemporary about a boy and a girl who fall in love, and I really enjoyed hearing from both their perspectives! In fact, this theme was featured on one of my previous Top Ten Tuesday posts here.
  2. Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan – A super cute story set in NYC at Christmastime! This one also has both perspectives of Dash and Lily, with strong, clear voices for each.
  3. A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall – Maybe the queen of alternating perspectives. We only hear from people surrounding this romance…and some non-people too!
  4. Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan – Both of these boys have really strong and clear voices as well. Both Will Graysons are different and that’s what makes this book fun.
  5. This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner – A sci-fi set in space! The two perspectives show different approaches to each situation, plus it allows for some really great romance.
  6. Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma – This book is about incest, and while creepy, Suzuma handles it really well. It also includes dual perspectives from the brother and the sister, to make it even more intense.
  7. Across the Universe by Beth Revis – Another sci-fi that does dual perspectives great! This entire series is one of my favorites.
  8. The Help by Kathryn Stockett – Told from three perspectives, this book gives a great insight into the South at the time of the 1960s. The perspectives allow for multiple different vantage points and experience of the prejudice.
  9. Legend by Marie Lu – Told between the perspectives of Day and June, this book is great because it features two totally different characters! Having them both tell the story allows for so much more to be said about the plot.
  10. Panic by Lauren Oliver – This one has four perspectives, each equally spread out and interesting.

Those are my favorite books with alternating perspectives! What are some of your favorites? Do you like dual POVs?

  1. Alternating points of view – that’s a good one. Oh, THE HELP. Lovely book – hard topic. And I’ve also read the Dash and Lily book. There are several here that I’d like to try. NIce list.

  2. Wow! Interesting list, I would have never thought of alternating POVs! I wasn’t that big of a fan of Gone Girl myself because it was a psychological thriller, but that one also has split perspectives!
