Top Ten Characters You Wish Would Get Their OWN Book

Rachel Lynde from Anne of Green Gables

I’ve always wished I could read a book from Rachel’s perspective. I’m sure it would be delightfully crotchety and full of griping and gossip and conspiracies in Avonlea.

The Cemetery of Forgotten Books from The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

OK so this isn’t precisely a character, but I would love to see a collection of short stories or a novel encompassing all of what goes on in the Cemetery of Forgotten Books. The main characters always visit and it shapes their lives, but we never get to really dive into it. I want to live there, see everything.

Joey from Winger by Andrew Smith

if you haven’t read Winger yet, it’s a YA book about a young man, Ryan Dean West, who goes to boarding school and all the self-exploration and growing up he does there. It’s self deprecating and sweet most of the way through, but ends with a sad sudden occurrence in relation to a close friend of his, Joey. I wont’ ruin it but I would love to delve deeper into Joey’s story and who he was. He’s such a central character to Ryan’s story, and yet he’s not. I always felt he deserved more.

Molly Carpenter from The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher

Molly begins as Dresden’s best friend’s daughter, becomes his apprentice and then a future main/secondary character in this series. She grows from a gothy angsty high-schooler not knowing how to handle her life to confident, almost scary, powerful magical entity. It would be awesome to see the whole story from her point of view and get to know more of what she goes through, not just the bits and pieces we see in Harry’s story.

Poppet and Widget from The Night Circus

It’s not just that I want to experience more of the night circus, which I do, but the twins are awesome strange characters who wander and grow up in the circus. It’s their whole world. I would love to see a book just about them growing up as the circus grows and taking it over later.
