Finding Books with Multiple Points of View | Searching Saturday

5Searching Saturday is a weekly bookish meme created and hosted by me. The aim is to find new-to-you books that fit the topic for that week (which I post on the last Sunday of each month). It’s like a scavenger hunt, a bookish scavenger hunt! I search for the books at my local bookstore but you can also use Goodreads. For more information on the meme, go here. To see all the past topics and future topics, go here.

I was so wrong, I t took me forever to find these! Apparently, there aren’t as many multiple pov books out there as I thought there were.

Multiple POV. It’s science fiction which isn’t something I gravitate towards but I’m open to trying. The first sentence got my attention, brother and sister in a tricky situation. Interesting. But then it all went downhill. ROMANCE. It’s all about a romance. Damn it.

down I got so excited about this one. It’s all about a friendship! A FRIENDSHIP! It sounds great. I’ve added it to my TBR.

I still decided to include it because it was the first time I actually read the synopsis. I had no idea this book had multiple POV. The synopsis sounds amazing. It’s a topic I know very little about, and one I should definitely learn about. The parallel paths thing sounds like a great approach to tell the story. Again, I added it to my TBR!

Then I find this baby and I’m pretty much jumping for joy. Another Science fiction book, but that doesn’t matter. The book itself actually sounds so good! Conjoined twins? Murder? Underground sneaky business? Count me in!

Schermafbeelding 2017-05-25 om 01.08.17Synopsis MAt this point (over an hour in the store) I realized I should probably be looking at the one genre in which multiple POV is a pretty common thing. High fantasy. Sure enough, I found one pretty fast. The downside is that I am intimidated by these kinds of books. So it’s not very likely that I will be picking this up anytime soon. I love the cover though.
