Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s theme is:
Top Ten Characters I Wish Would Get Their Own Book
I am sure we all have favourite secondary characters that we would like to see get their own novel. I often get quite attached to side characters, a lot of the time even more than the main characters with whom I am supposed to empathise with the most. Here are my favourite side characters that I wish would get their time in the sun! 8)
I just adore both George and Jack – they are such awesome characters! It helps that you see them grow up over the course of the series (and that they never fall into the realm of ‘annoying child characters’). They were never the main focus but they played a significant part in each of the books. I keep my fingers crossed for the day that this dynamic writing duo will revisit this series (they just have to – these two characters are just screaming out for their chance to shine).
I just bet that a lot of people will include Draco on their lists. I have a bit of a soft-spot for the bad-boy types and would really love a chance to see what makes Malfoy tick! I think it would create a really interesting dynamic to see things from his POV. I know he is a bit of a git but he is an interesting character who could do with having a few more layers.
Cezar was not exactly the most likable character but he certainly was an interesting one. Tormented and twisted from past misdeeds, his story would be a fascinating one. I would really love to know what happened to him.
I love Micah Youngblood – he is such a cutie-pie! I would love to get a story from his perspective. He was my favourite character in the book and I really would like to read about him again.
I was a little meh on him in the first book but in the second… oh my goodness! I loved Agent Barclay – he was the true star of the second book in my humble opinion. His perspective would be awesome.
I love Finnick but I don’t feel like he got quite enough page time. His story was both sweet and tragic and I would love to see what lies beneath the confident, seemingly cocky, exterior.
Granted, I haven’t read the whole series (yet) but the Darkling is by far and wide my favourite character. Is he a nice guy? No – but he is extremely fascinating and I would love to get inside his head and poke around in there to see what makes him tick!
I adore Carswell Throne – he is just the kind of book boyfriend I love to read about and I would love to get more of him (I know there are some parts from his POV but not enough for my liking)!
Legolas was always a crush of mine as a young ‘un. He was mysterious and hello – hot elf!! I would have loved a book about Legolas – it would have been incredible!
I feel really bad for Meredith in this series. She is a really fantastic character and I would have loved to see her get her happily ever after. Hopefully Stephanie Perkins will revisit the characters in this series at some point.
