Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Characters I Wish Would Get Their OWN Book

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature run by BrokeAndBookish each week – I’m thinking I might not take part every week but just see if a week takes my fancy. I love secondary characters, sometimes more than the main character, so this was the perfect Top Ten Tuesday for me as I always want to know more about minor or secondary characters.

I quite like not knowing much about Angela’s past but I think it would be cool to have a story about what she did after Galbatorix is defeated. I’d love to see her go on more adventures and get involved in other rebellions and excitements.

Robin Goodfellow – Cal Leandros series by Rob Thurman
Robin Goodfellow is a very old puck so I’d love to read about his adventures before he met Cal and Nico in the twenty-first century.

Murtagh – The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini
Murtagh is such a tragic character. I’d love to have a book from his point of view about when he is captured by Galbatorix and how he came to be bounded with Thorn, his dragon. It wouldn’t be a fun story but I’d like to see what was done to him to make him turn against Eragon, but at the same time what made him stay strong and try to protect Nasuada.

Annie Cresta – The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins
A book all about Annie, how she won the Hunger Games she was reaped for and how it affected her would be fascinating because we know she’s not OK so how did this timid girl win over Career Tributes? Also seeing what happens to her after the end of Mockingjay could be heart-breaking.

Mogget – The Old Kingdom trilogy by Garth Nix photo (9)
I’d love to what sort of character Mogget was before he was bound to serve the Abhorsen.
(This may be answered in Clariel but I have yet to have the chance to read it – unfortunately)

Christina – Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth
I’d like to know more about how growing up as Candor affected Christina when she decided to transfer to Dauntless. I think it’d also be cool to see the end of Allegiant from her point of view to see how a certain major event affected her and how she felt when she saw what Four was willing to do.

Newt – The Maze Runner trilogy by James Dashner
I think there are prequels to The Maze Runner but I have yet to read them. I’d still like to know more about Newt, his friendship with Alby and the other guys in the Glade and how he coped with being in the maze and after he broke his leg. I just loved Newt and preferred him a lot more than Thomas so I’d love to have more books about him and from his point of view.

Luna Lovegood – the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
I’d like to see Luna painting the mural of her friends on the ceiling of her bedroom and her thoughts behind it. I’d also like to see The Deathly Hallows from her point of view, what with being stuck at Hogwarts when it’s being run by Death Eaters and all.

DSC02305Mitch – Vicious by V.E. Schwab
Mitch is such a contradiction – he is huge and looks like a thug but he is incredibly smart with computers and is a pro at cyber-crime. I’d like to see what he decides to do after the end of Vicious, whether he goes back to a life of crime or stays on the right side of the law.

Nachiel – Poe by J. Lincoln Fenn
Nachiel is a good spirit who has to help out an old Russian family. I’d like to see who he was before he became bound to them and if he actually likes having to be helpful to certain members of the family who are a bit useless when it comes to the spirit world.



  1. A book focusing on Luna Lovegood – her life before, during and after Hogwarts – would definitely be interesting!

    Great list! 🙂

  2. I actually thought about adding Newt as well, but left him out in the end. Although he was one of my favourite characters, so I’d definitely read more on him!
    I would love a book in Luna’s point of view, even though half of the time, we’d probably have no idea what she’s talking about!
    And yes, Annie… I chose Finnick myself, which would give me more Annie as well.

    Beautiful list!

  3. Great list! I love that you’ve included Goodfellow – he steals his scenes in that series and it would be fascinating to hear more from him. 🙂
