18 Interesting Books with Multiple POVS

Few things sell me on a book faster than finding out it has multiple POVs. Whether it’s different characters or different timelines, I’m all in. I love getting to dive into a story from different points of view because you can feel the world better. I DEVOUR Jodi Picoult novels and a big part of why is the multiple POVs from different characters, all of which seem disparate but eventually come together in a really cool way. Other books, like Sometimes I Lie and Young Jane Young, have different POVS that go through different timelines. Recently, I read Pivot Point and Split Second by Kasie West and she had the same character going through two separate timelines in the first book, which was really unique. Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid does the same thing, though with less paranormal activity.  So, in celebration of my love for these books, here are eighteen books that utilize multiple POVs to tell the story in a more interesting way!

    I love multiple POVs too, and there are a few on your list that are on my TBR – perhaps it’s time to move them closer to the top of the pile!
