The majority of YA novels are written from a female point of view, so which of my favourite books are written from a male perspective?
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl: I didn’t know that this was written from Ethan’s point of view until I started reading it and I was pleasantly surprised. It was good to learn about Gatlin from a native and the book really wouldn’t have been the same if it was written from Lena’s POV.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky: This book is written from Charlie’s perspective which was really interesting to read and it was actually written in a way that made the reader feel as if Charlie was actually writing it, which is something that is often left out in many novels.
Jessie Hearts NYC by Keris Stainton: Yay for Finn! This book was super funny and I loved seeing events unfold from both Jessie and Finn.
The Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy by Maggie Stiefvater: Maggie Stiefvater never fails to amaze me. This was one of the first books that I read that contained a male POV and I was really surprised at how much it added to the books.
Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman: This is such a sad book and the addition of Callum’s perspective really added a huge depth of emotion to it. It was good to see things from his Nought view point.
