Top Ten Characters I Wish Would Get Their Own Books

November 11, 2014

Links go to my reviews!


1. Rachel Elizabeth Dare (Percy Jackson series) — I love Rachel Elizabeth Dare so much. Like, so so much. I want to see what wacky adventures she gets into when she’s not popping up to talk to Percy and Annabeth about the latest prophecy. What is her life like? Did she have a crush on Percy? GIVE ME MORE.

2. Hogwarts (Harry Potter series) — I want a story set at Hogwarts that has nothing to do with Voldemort or Harry Potter. Just a story about some random Ravenclaw/Hufflepuff/Slytherin/Gryffindor and the wacky adventures s/he and his/her friends get into. I want to see Hogwarts from a different perspective. In fact, my ideal would be a collection of short stories set at the school

3. Tina Hakim Baba (Princess Diaries series) — Basically, I’m putting her on every list ever because I love her so much.

4. Chrysanthemum “Chrissy” Everstar (My Fair Godmother series) — What does she DO when she’s not complicating mortals’ lives? The book hints at the parties and stuff she gets into, but I really would like to see the world she inhabits.

5. Isabelle (Belle Epoque) — She was by far the most interesting character in that book. I’d love to see her wacky scientist adventures.

6. The Capitol (The Hunger Games trilogy) — I really wish the movies had done more with/about showing how the other districts–especially the Capitol and District 2–experience the Games. They are so different than District 12 and 11 (and all we know about them is what Katniss tells us) that I would really enjoy seeing how someone so far removed from the Games but glamorizes them (or maybe doesn’t, like Cinna!) experiences the whole thing.

7. Einar (Son) — Oh, I love him and Claire so much (separately and together) that I really, really would just read a whole book about them.

8. Reece Malcolm (The Reece Malcolm List) — Not grown-up Reece since I have a clear handle on her, but I’d love to see teenaged/young adult Reece. She’s so fascinating.

9. Deb (What Happened to Goodbye) — Deb was a standout in What Happened to Goodbye. I was so intrigued by her and her varied interests. I am sure she would follow the contemplative mode of all of Dessen’s narrators, and I’m not entirely sure how I feel about that, but. I do think she would have a rich interior life, and I am here for it.

10. Cecile (One Crazy Summer) — She is so complicated and so interesting! When I read the second book, I loved her letters more than anything. Cecile! More please!

    I totally agree with you about Cecile! What a fantastic character. She definitely made book two of the series.

    Definitely agree with Hogwarts!
