Hello darlings. It's time for Top Ten Tuesday again, yay! TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, today's topic is: ten books for people who like character driven novels. At first I was sure this will be hard but actually I found many character driven books on my shelf. Well... at least I think these are character driven.
To all of you who enjoy character driven novels I hope you'll find some books that you haven't yet read but find interesting. I added my favorite quote under each book, take it as an introduction. Have fun browsing through my list.
“Music is a total constant. That's why we have such a strong visceral connection to it, you know? Because a song can take you back instantly to a moment, or a place, or even a person. No matter what else has changed in your or the world, that one song says the same, just like that moment.”
“Nothing made me the way I am. Nothing but me.”
"Because the pathetic, messed up girl in the mirror is unrecognizable. She's like a mosaic of what everyone else wanted her to be. And I don't remember there being any broken pieces before. Because I used to be whole. "
“Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be.”
“To tell the truth will make me loathsome in your eyes.
Even more than I already am.
I pledge to give you all the truth that's in me.
And you want me to tell you this.”
“That's the thing about the internet. It's really good at giving you pointless facts like how many horses a star owns, but not important things like how to invade his trailer.”
“You going in? I mean, of course you are, I just—should we go?”
“Well, we’ve already come this far,” he (Carmichael) says. “Why not just enter the mouth of hell?”
“This is the you I like. You definitely dressed sexier and are, you know, blond, and that's different. But the you who are tonight is the same you I was in love with yesterday, the same you I'll be in love with tomorrow. I love that you're fragile and tough, quiet and kick-ass. ”
“I shiver, thinking how easy it is to be totally wrong about people-to see one tiny part of them and confuse it for the whole, to see the cause and think it's the effect or vice versa”
“Here is something I love about Gat: he is so enthusiastic, so relentlessly interested in the world, that he has trouble imagining the possibility that other people will be bored by what he’s saying. Even when they tell him outright. But also, he doesn’t like to let us off easy. He wants to make us think—even when we don’t feel like thinking.”
That was all for today, loves. I hope you found some new book or some that you cherish on my list, don't be shy, share your thoughts upon them with me. Leave me the link to your TTT, I can't wait to find out what ten character driven novels you enjoyed.
Thanks for stopping by.
