Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Lainey. You get a new topic every Wednesday, and you list your Top 5 books related to the particular topic.
Today’s Topic is: Books with Multiple POVs
I read a lot of fantasy so this topic was actually pretty easy for me – the hardest part was narrowing it down to just five books! I have therefore listed my top five book series that contain multiple POVs, in no particular order, as follows:
The Raven Cycle Series by Maggie Stiefvater
One of my absolute favourite series ever! I love the multiple POVs in this (especially when Ronan Lynch is added to the mix in The Dream Thieves). This series just wouldn’t work following a single POV- there is just way too much going on.
The Lumatere Chronicles
This series is absolutely incredible. I love the fact that you get so many POVs – you really get to see all sides of the story. My favourite POV would have to be Quintana though – she has a very unique voice.
A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin
No list would be complete without the epic ASOIAF series! True, the story does get far more convoluted with each new POV that is added and it is easy to get lost within each of these massive tomes but the story is so far reaching it wouldn’t work told any other way.
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
This series is interesting in that it adds more POVs as it goes along. With every book, new protagonists are introduced but we still get POV chapters from characters from the previous books. I think it works really well here. You get a chance to know the new characters but you don’t lose track of the old ones either.
Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
This series is a little bit similar to ASOIAF (it has been described as the young adult version of that series) as it has multiple POVs but there are a few core characters that the story focuses on. I really love this series. The first book was a little light on plot but each new installment has upped the ante and it is definitely one of my favourites.
