Top Ten Tuesday #60 + Teaser Tuesday #21

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish 

It's so good to be back and doing these weekly memes! I missed them! Anyway, this week's Top Ten Tuesday topic is: Top 10 Books I'd Recommend to Someone Who Likes Character-Driven Stories. It was sorta a toughie, because I had to go back and think about old books I've read, and really analyze whether or not it was character-driven. For the most part, I like my choices.

This time it was much more serious. Billy had been barely able to crawl back to his cubicle before passing out. The cleaning staff found him and arranged to get him home. His mother called Rachel, the healer, who came straight to the house. The Universe Builders by Steve LeBel (pg. 193)

  1. I just picked up Universe Builders. A friend recommended it and I'm hoping to start it soon.

  2. Aww... Ella Enchanted is a cute book. So very different from the movie, too... though I like both.

    1. I like both, too, surprisingly. Though I wish they would remake it and stick close to the book this time.

    1. STRANGE AND BEAUTIFUL SORROWS is a very interesting, very well written, very disturbing book. I honestly still don't know how I felt about it. JACKABY is amazing!!!!!!!

    1. Thanks! :) I almost forgot ELLA ENCHANTED myself. It's one of my favorite books, but somehow I always forget about it when I'm listing things.

  5. Ahh, I've been looking at Cruel Beauty for aaaages. Good to know it's character-driven too; my favourite sort of book!

    1. It's amazing! I know I'm a little bit alone in loving it as much as I do, but I personally thought it was one of the best fairy tale retellings I've read.
