I always think about alternatives to books with characters I enjoyed or didn’t see enough of. That’s what makes today’s post really great for me. This week’s list is:
~Top Ten Characters That Deserve Their Own Book~
1. Rashmi (Anna and The French Kiss #1)
In Anna and The French Kiss, all of the focus is on Anna and St. Clare. We don’t find out much about Rashmi until almost the end when we discover she’s been going through a lot. I would be satisfied with a pre, during, or post-Anna and The French Kiss involving Rashmi.
2. Alaska (Looking For Alaska) Rashmi
Alaska was a flawed character who was also really mysterious. I would love to see her first go to the boarding school. I think it would be interesting seeing even before then and viewing her home life.
3. Isaac (The Fault In Our Stars)
I would like to see a post-The Fault In Our Stars book with seeing Isaac deal with being blind and losing Augustus (and possibly Hazel). It would be a great chance to incorporate flashbacks of Augustus and Isaac pre-Hazel.
4. Peeta (The Hunger Games)
I would like to see Peeta’s perspective of The Hunger Games.
5. Gale (Catching Fire (The Hunger Games #2)
Though I feel this could easily be an annoying book with the romantic feelings, I think a book from Gale’s point of view would be really interesting. I would like to see his feelings on watching the Catching Fire games, now knowing that there’s “something” between Katniss and Peeta. It would also be nice to see him talk about his feelings with Katniss and see how long he exactly liked her. It could probably do great for flashbacks as well.
6. A (Pretty Little Liars series)
I would love a book from A’s point of views. A’s such an interesting character, unknown and mysterious. It would be really interesting seeing A work (revealed or not to the readers) against the girls. A has so much power and money, I would love to see A get ideas of what to do next.
7. Spencer Hastings (Pretty Little Liars series)
Spencer is my favorite character in the Pretty Little Liars series. I would love a prequel PLL book of her life before and during her knowing Allison. It would be great seeing her living with Melissa during school and their relationship.
8. Nathan (A Midsummer’s Nightmare)
Nathan is a main character in A Midsummer’s Nightmare and towards the end, we discover he had been very similar to Whitley. It would be interesting seeing his “wild” years before he and Whitley ever met.
I really liked reading from Ari’s point of view in Aristotle and Dante, so I’d love to read more about Aristotle from Dante’s view. We don’t really know his thoughts aside from what he directly tells Ari. It would have been interesting to see him voice his thoughts while away from him.
10. Mary (Long Day’s Journey Into Night)
Although Long Day’s Journey Into Night is based on Eugene O’Neil’s life, I’d love to read a book from Mary’s point of view. I would love to see her dealing with her addiction to morphine before she went to treatment and before that Long Day’s Journey Into Night.
Sam and Patrick (Perks of Being A Wallflower)
I would love to see a book in Patrick’s point of view during Perks or a book involving the two in college post-Perks.
