POVone: The First Person Perspective

Rants and Reviews on Novels Written in the First Person Point of View

List of Novels Written in First Person

Here’s the exhaustive list of all the first person novels published since 2015 that I’ve been able to review.

The novels are sorted in alphabetical order by author’s last name. You can read the reviews by clicking on the titles or browse the categories by clinking on the category links.

The rating is a composite of the average Amazon.com review either 30 days after publication or later–at the time I reviewed the book. The average is a percentage–with the average number of “stars” divided by 5, the total possible number of stars. If a book had fewer than 30 reviews at the time I gathered the data, I don’t rate it and instead give it an “I” for insufficient data. “TBD,” of course, means that the book hasn’t yet been rated.

If there’s something you think I’m missing that should be on here, please don’t hesitate to let me know.
