Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and Bookish. Each week the bloggers at The Broke and The Bookish put out a topic, and discuss their top ten options for said topic. This week’s Top Ten is: Top Ten Characters You Wish Would Get Their OWN Book (minor or just maybe a semi main character you wish a book was from their POV)
Numair Salmalin of the Immortals series by Tamora Pierce. Numair is one of my favorite characters of all time, and I really want to know more of his backstory and what’s going on in his head. He’s wonderfully complex and I just really want to see more about him.
Isaac from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I want to know what happens next with him. Where does his story go? He was a great supporting character, providing some comedic humor, but at the same time having his own compelling story (what we saw of it.) So yeah. I want to see more of Isaac.
Professor Randolph Lyall of the The Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger. I stopped reading this series after the third book, but if I heard that Lyall was going to receive his own story, I’d come running back just to read it. He’s a character that I really liked and wanted to know more of. I did skim where more was revealed about him, but it wasn’t enough. He could carry a book of his own.
Gabriel of the Half Bad series by Sally Green. I really disliked Half Bad, and the only shining light in it for me was Gabriel. He’s an interesting character who has a few motives that aren’t quite revealed, and he’ well rounded and thought out, so unlike the main character. I want to know more about Gabriel.
Thomas of the Anna by Kendare Blake. He’s the nerd that gets the girl. I want to know what he was like before Cas entered his life, and what happens more with his relationships now that Cas is sticking around a bit longer.
Magnus Bane of the The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. Now I realize there are novellas out there, but I want a full length story about him. I wasn’t a fan of the novellas, and so I’d really love something that delved into his character, his history and what happens with him.
Jean Kirstein of Attack on Titan by Hajime Isayama. Jean is one of my favorite manga characters ever. He shows so much development and change, and he’s a smart mouthed hot head. I need to know more about him, and his past. Plus holding tight to the hope that he doesn’t die, as most of my favorite characters tend to do.
Stebbs from Not A Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis. I found him really insightful and useful. I want to know more of his history and how he came to be the crotchety old man that he is. I really liked him, and I want to know more.
The Marauders from the world of Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling. Because Marauders. Because we need to read about their exploits and their fun. Because we need to see Sirius Black laughing and happy. Because Lupin needs to be surrounded by people who love him. Because I want to read it so badly, from the very instant that they were even mentioned.
Razor Eddie God of the Switchblade from the Nightside series by Simon R. Green. One of the most memorable, mysterious and enigmatic characters that I’ve ever read–I want to know more. I want to see the Nightside through Eddie’s eyes. I want to see John and John’s choices with Eddie’s mentality. I want to know what caused him to go so far down the deep dark tunnel that he became who and what he is. I’ve been yelling about this for years, but I want more Eddie.
That is my Top Ten Tuesday list. If you’ve done one as well, feel free to link it in the comments. 🙂
