Brittney (brittney_joy) | 17 comments I have an idea for a new-adult novel that involves multiple point-of-views - 4 women with very different personalities that have an intertwined story. However, I know it can be very difficult to write from multiple POVs and still keep your reader fully interested. I'd like to start reading other stories that have been successfully written in multiple POVs-- do you have any reading suggestions?

Prpages I know ones with mostly two-person POVS that have had some successes:

Under The Never Sky-Veronica Rossi
The sister-hood of the traveling pants-Anna Brashares
You could also try Perfect Chemistry by Simon Elkles
Or almost any Cassandra Clare book primarily the Infernal Devices.
Crossed by Alley Condie which is actually the second in a series or the final book in the series Reached which has the most POVS.

Good luck on your writing!

The Call of the Deep by Tracy Lane

Leonie (leonierogers) The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson is a book that very successfully uses multiple points of view, in my opinion.

It's not really a YA book, but is a book that may well appeal to YA readers.
