But sometimes a story just needs to be told from a guy's POV. Sometimes a story needs both sides, like my WIP. My plan is to alternate the chapters between the guy and girl. Now, I'm a girl (you didn't know??? gasp!), so trying to authentically portray a dude can be tricky. For research, I'm beefing up my reading list with books that feature a male POV.
Here's what's up first on my radar:
Candor by Pam Bachorz - I started reading this one yesterday and I'm only five chapters in, but already SO intrigued!
The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour
Stupid Fast and Nothing Special by Geoff Herbach
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
I'm probably the last person left to read this book, and I bought it years ago (even met both of them and had my series signed!) but it's just SO HUGE! It's very intimidating. I'm sure I'll be seeing the movie when it comes out, so I must read it before that!
Some I've already read:
Looking for Alaska by John Green, the Perfect Chemistry series by Simone Elkeles has alternating POVs, as does Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma
Have you read any books with a male POV that you'd recommend?
