Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This week's topic: Characters I wish would get their OWN book.

1. Hassan Harbish from An Abundance of Katherines by John Green - I love this character, I think he's hilarious, and I'd want to see him find love and success in college. 

2. Valentina from The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black - I'd like Valentina, a transwoman, to be the star of either a sequel or prequel to this novel. The prequel could be her journey to Coldtown, the sequel about making a decision to become a vampire (or not). 

3. Lindsey Lim from Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins - I feel this character, an aspiring detective with a mystery novel obsession, the Nancy Drew to Lola's Ned, was underused in this book and needs a romantic adventure of her own. Lindsey and the Meet Cute Murder Mystery.

4. Angela and Holly from The Lynburn Legacy series by Sarah Rees Brennan - This couple deserves to take center stage in their own book.

5. The Marauders from The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling - I'm obsessed with the Marauder era of Harry Potter and I'll own up to reading some fan fiction back in the day. Since Rowling is filling in bits and pieced of her universe, why not some stories about young Lupin and co?

I confess that I don't recognize choices 2-4 but think that more from An Abundance of Katherines would be fun. I tend to think that most stories are just what they should be so I rarely pine for more information on the characters. Here is my off-beat TTT-Anne

JaimeLH TheWorldfortheReading said...

Definitely The Marauders! I've seen them on a lot of lists today and I'm praying that J.K. Rowling takes notice. LOL.


Great list :)

JaimeLH TheWorldfortheReading said...

Weird. I don't remember much about Lindsey Lim, and the rest on your list are people I'm not familiar with…Lol.

JaimeLH TheWorldfortheReading said...

Haha basically J.k. needs to write books about all her other characters! That's what I've gotten from this meme ;)

JaimeLH TheWorldfortheReading said...

Ah Marauders, I need to get into their fan fiction, I heard about so many amazing stories from that universe! Hassan is a good pick as well!

JaimeLH TheWorldfortheReading said...

Completely agree about Hassan! Also, "Lindsey and the Meet Cute Murder Mystery" is an adorable title!
Who wouldn't want to see a book about the Marauders??

JaimeLH TheWorldfortheReading said...

"Lindsey and the Meet Cute Murder Mystery" sounds amazing! :)
And yes yes yes to The Marauders!!

JaimeLH TheWorldfortheReading said...

Thank you :) I'd read that book. Hooray for the Marauder fans!

JaimeLH TheWorldfortheReading said...

Thanks!
Really, it's true, who wouldn't?

JaimeLH TheWorldfortheReading said...

Haha honestly it's been years but I used to be obsessed. The one that stuck in my mind is The Shoebox Project, if that still exists somewhere on the interwebz it's a good read.

JaimeLH TheWorldfortheReading said...

Truer words have never been spoken :)

JaimeLH TheWorldfortheReading said...

That's exactly why she needs her own book. To be memorable! :)

JaimeLH TheWorldfortheReading said...

Fingers crossed. I never would have guessed we'd get a Fantastic Beasts movie or all these little shorts, so anything's possible, lol

JaimeLH TheWorldfortheReading said...

Yeah I had a hard time with this one, only coming up with five. I guess I should pay more attention to side characters.
I'll check it out.

JaimeLH TheWorldfortheReading said...

The Marauders definitely. There is sooo much to know. Hopefully she gets around to it someday.

JaimeLH TheWorldfortheReading said...

I live in hope :)
