The Deja Vu Review is a new Sunday feature with mini-reviews from books I’ve read before I began my blog at The Book Addict’s Guide! Since I’ve been reading my whole life and only started my blog back in April of 2012, this is my opportunity to revisit some older books and share some mini-reviews of those that didn’t quite make it into the blog spotlight after the initial read.
This week’s topic is: Favorite male protagonists
Usually I read a lot of books where the main character is a female. Okay, so almost all of them. So I thought I’d highlight a few books that I really enjoyed with some of my favorite male MCs!
Okay, since I’ve repeated a couple of these over the past DJVRs, I’m just gonna keep it short and sweet this week!
1. The Giver – Lois Lowry: Jonas has always been one of my favorite MCs. I love watching his journey throughout this book as well as seeing him really grow into an adult quite quickly.
2. Harry Potter (all of them) – J.K. Rowling: Sometimes I’m surprised by how well I identified with Harry Potter at any given time, but that really just proves the excellent talent that JKR possesses. Even with my other favorite male MCs, I’ve never gotten into a story and a character as much as I have with Harry Potter!
3. The Perks of Being a Wallflower – Stephen Chbosky: I read this many, many years ago (when I was actually a teenager) and I need to reread it again, but Charlie’s story always stuck out to me.
4. The Maze Runner – James Dashner: Although I was disappointed with how the series ended, I really liked Thomas’s POV throughout the series. It was a refreshing take on the dystopian genre since most of the ones I’ve read are from a female perspective.
Who are your favorite male MCs? Hope you join us for this week’s Deja Vu Review! Link up is below 🙂

I really want to read The Giver and Perks. I have to watch the movie for Perks first, though! Harry Potter was my protagonist for today 🙂
Great post! I haven’t read The Maze Runner yet, but I would definitely count Harry, Jonas, and Charlie among my favorite male protagonists.
Ooh love this list! I haven’t read Perks yet, but enjoyed the other 3. I actually just finished The Maze Runner and will move on the the 2nd book soon – but I really enjoyed seeing this new World that Dschner created. And the ending – I was like … whaaatttt … must read book 2!
