Top Ten Characters You Wish Had Their Own Book

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

As always, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely ladies at The Broke and the Bookish

1. Lazarus from The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen.
So this guy. Let's just talk about this mysterious, dark, broody hunk of a man right quick. We know he is loyal to the queen, but we know virtually nothing else about him. He's always one step ahead of everyone it seems, but we hardly know anything form his past. This calls for a book don't you think?

2. Finnick from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. 
I think I can speak for everyone in the THG fandom, that we would all want a Finnick companion novel, right? He has such a rich backstory with his love for Annie and then what happened to him after he won the games. I think I need this in my life while I bawl my eyes out.

3. The Marauders from the Harry Potter universe by J.K. Rowling.
I have been asking for this ever since we were introduced to the Marauders. I need their adventures in my life. I need more of Hogwarts and Dumbledore and McGonagall and Snape. Ugh my poor Severus. I just need this okay?!

4. Nikolai from the Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo.
Okay, so I was in love with this guy from the get-go. I liked him A LOT! He had such a striking personality, and I really would love to read a spin off series about him as he tries to rebuild his empire.

5. Rowan from Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas.
Okay, so most of you guys know I have ALL THE FEELS concerning Rowan. I mean, who can't fall in love with him? Honestly, I just want to know everything about him. I don't care if it's boring stuff, I just want to read more about him. I'm so very excited that we have three more books in the series to really unpack his character... Oh, wait... I say that, but Maas better not pull a killing curse on Rowan before the sixth book is up. I may never have dry eyes again.

6. Raoul from The Song of the Lioness and The Protector of the Small Quartet by Tamora Pierce.
This is a nostalgic one for me. I read this books back in 8th grade or freshman year of high school, and completely fell in love with his character. I wanted to read more about him and really get to know him on more of a personal level... I will admit to wanting to know so badly that I settled for terribly (and sometimes not so terribly) written fanfiction to slake my thirst.

7. Anden from the Legend trilogy by Marie Lu.
I really liked Anden. I respected him, and there were even times that I liked him more than Day. I would have really liked to see how he developed as a character in such a war torn country, but sadly, that's where Lu wanted to end things... Sigh.

8. Manon from Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas.
I already felt like we kinda got our own book with Manon, because her story was so separate from all the others. But I LOVE her. She's so dark and bloody and power hungry. I just love it! I need an origin story for her quick like. 

9. Arya from the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini.
Granted, we got a lot of her story in the series, but I really wanted to know more and really go through the love interest she had with the other elf (I forgot his name). She was such an awesome character that I would have loved to really go through her life pre-Eragon.

10. Cleon from The Protector of the Small Quartet by Tamora Pierce.
Cleon was a fun character in my opinion. He was flirty and funny but had the mettle to get down to business if he need to. We got to see him on and off through the whole series, and quite a bit in the third installment, but after that, he seemed to drop off the face of the character panel. It made me terribly sad. 

What characters would you choose to have their own book?


  1. Yes to all the Tamora Pierce characters! Numair and Maura are each getting their own books, so maybe there's hope for the others. Also, I love the Marauders. And Nicolai!

  2. A book for the Marauder's and Nikolai would be awesome! They would be such interesting stories! I agree about Finnick too but I really want to see a companion novel about Haymitch. He's my favorite character and so much like Katniss yet his life ran a different course and I'd love to see that! Great list!
    Here's my TT:

    1. Ooohhh yeah! Haymitch would be awesome! His story in the games is so soul crushing.

  3. Aack... I'm only familiar with two of these! Some of the books are on my TBR list, though.

    I've seen Finnick on a couple of lists today, along with Peeta and Gale. Gale made my list.

    1. Only two? Woah, we must completely different kind of books. Because I feel like these are the big wigs in fantasy and dystopian genres.

  4. YES to all of the Tamora Pierce characters! I am so happy to see another Tamora Pierce lover!

    Check out my TTT here!

  5. Finnick! I chose him too. And I haven't gotten to Heir of Fire yet, but I can't wait to meet Manon and Rowan.

    1. Oh girl, you are going to die! That book kills me every stinking time. I've read it twice since it was released beautiful and kickass in every stinkin way!

  6. 2. Ohmygosh YES. I would totally read Finnick's story from beginning to heartbreaking end. I think it would be so incredibly interesting, and to get inside of his head would be crazy good.

    4. I just really want to see Nikolai happy! I want him to find some gorgeous, sassy princess who totally loves him, but doesn't fall for any of his charm and gives him crap about it. Sigh. I would gobble up a book about Nikolai in no time.

    5. ROWAN. Ohmygosh YES. I would totally read a spin-off series all about that sexy fae man.

    7. I would really like to read about the times between the end of Champion, and the end of the epilogue, where Anden was the leader and doing things right, but still having troubles (as he probably would have). The heartbreak over June would be painful, but maybe he could find someone else.

    8. I would definitely like a book based on our witchy princess. I think she's so badass, and she's so different to the other witches. I'd like to know how that happened - what things changed her from the rest of them.

    As for the other books - I haven't read them (eep!).

    1. Oh you should!!! This is more or less a list of some of my favorite books of all time! You should definitely read the Inheritance Cycle, and The Queen of the Tearling. Both are excellent!
