Top Ten Tuesday: Characters that NEED their own book!

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week, you make a list of ten books surrounding a certain topic. This week is all about characters that should totally get their own book. Whether it is a novella or a novel, a minor character or a semi-main character, it doesn’t matter. I know that some of the books I’ve listed do have some chapters through the mentioned character’s eyes. Yet I’ve listed them, because I NEED MORE from that character. I hope you enjoy my list!

  1. Pippin (Peregrin Took)
    The Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien
    I know that Pippin already has his own point-of-view chapters in the books combined, but honestly it’s not enough. He is one of the best characters in this trilogy in my opinion!
  2. Kenji
    Shatter Me trilogy by Tahereh Mafi
    Kenji is just so witty and hilarious. A book from his POV would mean non-stop laughing.
  3. Wadi or Khareh
    The Knots Duology by Amy McCulloch
    I couldn’t decide on which character in this series. I’d love to read through Wadi’s eyes and learn about her history etc but on the other hand, I want to know what goes on in Khareh’s head!
  4. Raffe
    Penryn and the End of Days series by Susan Ee
    This needs to happen. An entire book through the angel’s eyes -literally.
  5. Mg. Emery Thane
    The Paper Magician trilogy
    We got one chapter from Emery’s POV in the sequel, The Glass Magician. It was so interesting and I really hope the third book has more chapters through his eyes. If not, then there HAS to be a novella or something.

  1. Elizabeth or Molly
    Rite of Rejection by Sarah Negovetich
    I couldn’t choose here either. I would be interested in books seen through both girls’ eyes. I want to know more of their back story and the way their minds work, if you know what I mean.
  2. Gansey
    The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater
    There can never be enough Gansey. That’s all I really have to say.
  3. Ginny
    Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
    Imagine it: the Harry Potter series rewritten through Ginny’s eyes. What do you think? It’s a definite yes in my opinion. Or maybe even Fred and George? Although I’d prefer Ginny.
  4. Arya
    The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini
    Arya is such a mysterious and wise character and a story fabricated by her mind would be so unique!
  5. Wesley Rush
    The DUFF by Kody Keplinger
    While Bianca’s story is wonderful, I can’t help but think that it would be even better if we saw a glimpse of Wesley’s thoughts.

So this was my list for this week. Did you make a list or do you (dis)agree with my choices? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. You are completely right: there can NEVER be enough Gansey. X) I would handle a book written by any of them…Noah or Ronan, totally. But Ronan does get a lot of The Dream Thieves, so I’m a liiittle bit appeased. But OH GOSH, wouldn’t Kenji’s book be hilarious? That kind of humour would just explode me. xD
    Thanks for stopping by @ Notebook Sisters!


  2. I haven’t read many of these books, although most of them are on my TBR! I think Kenji is a great pick and I’ve never really thought about Ginny’s POV, but it sounds good too.


    1. Thank you! I tried to pick some books I thought wouldn’t get featured otherwise… I’ve seen a lot of HP related choices in TTT this week but not Ginny which surprises me a bit. Maybe it’s just because I love Ginny’s character so much that I thought of it.


  3. Yes, Gansey, all Gansey, all the time. I can already smell the mint. I haven’t read The Paper Magician, but I do have it on my tablet and I’ve heard wonderful things.


    1. I can’t immediately think of any stories like the DUFF. I really liked Kody Keplinger’s Shut Out as well but it’s not the same. There’s The Avery Shaw Experiment, which is also a romance-high-school book that I love but it is very different from The DUFF.

      Now that you mention it, I can’t think of any… Must do some research soon!
      Thank you!


  4. I agree – a glimpse of the events from The DUFF from Wes’ point of view would be interesting indeed! Great list 🙂
