Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments I really love books that alternate perspectives or have a male POV. Maybe some of you feel the same way and look for this in the books you choose.

We can share suggestions here :)

The piper's song is wayy flatter than saving Francesca. Tom just annoyed me in it. I have to give a try to other recommendations!

Samia Ruponti (snoebell92) | 451 comments I love Good For You!!!


message 19: by Greta (new)

Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments Samia, I'm really undecided about that series. Some reviews say its awesome, but others are only luke warm. Are all the books, or only the last one, in the male pov?

I didn't continue the series after the 1st book, but I heard the last book is really good.

all of theme are from alternative pov. it may seem slow to some, but I'm not a fan of insta-love, so I liked all of them. The characters take a lot of time falling in love, and face a lot of "hollywood hardship" (paparazzi, faked photo etc).

Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments not sure yet if it will qualify as a "best" book ...but it's an all male perspective. Warm Bodies (Warm Bodies, #1) by Isaac Marion

Amanda (amandagb) | 43 comments Chasing nikki (Chase Walker #1) is a fantastic novel but so heart breaking too. Worth a read.


message 32: by Kat (new)

Kat (kaitlins16) Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher -this is from a male's perspective even though most of it is her talking on the tapes. Amazing book.

Intertwined (Intertwined, #1) by Gena Showalter -alternating
The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1) by Rick Riordan Jerk, California by Jonathan Friesen Candy by Kevin Brooks Ship Breaker (Ship Breaker, #1) by Paolo Bacigalupi Paper Towns by John Green Looking for Alaska by John Green An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
Being by Kevin Brooks -when I think of weird books, this just automatically comes to my mind, but I loved it.

message 34: by Greta (new)

Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments Flat-Out Matt by Jessica Park is a novella. It's Matt's perspective of the events in Flat-Out Love by Jessica Park
It includes a prologue that takes place before he meets Julie and an epilogue that tells us a little of what happened after the end of Flat Out Love.
This novella was awesome! It totally solidified my love for Matt!
