Top Ten Tuesday: Characters We Wish Had Their OWN Books


top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.

 Today’s Topic: Top Ten Characters We Wish Had Their OWN Books

We loved these characters and think they deserve their own books!


1. Alaska from Looking for Alaska by John Green

I would love to hear the story from her perspective. It would make a wonderful book.

2. Jasmine from Tyrell by Coe Booth

Jasmine always intrigues me, and I continually think about her. I would love for her to have her own book.

3. Sohrab from Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

Sohrab is one of my favorite characters of all time. I wish I could read the story from his perspective.

4. Tom Robinson from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Wouldn’t the story be different if we heard Tom’s voice?

5. Any other character from We Were Liars by e. lockhart

I would love to see Cadence from another character’s perspective.


I realized while making this list that I just really want to hear stories with male protagonists told from the female character’s point of view.

1. Hermoine from Harry Potter by JK Rowling

I would love to hear Hermoine’s voice.

2. Annabeth from Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan

Annabeth is one of the many reasons why Percy survives so many crazy situations. I would love to hear her thoughts!

3. Sabina Pleasure from Alex Rider by Anthony Horowitz

I would love to hear what she thinks about Alex and what she thinks about being lied to.

4. Margo Roth Spiegelman from Paper Towns by John Green

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to hear Margo’s true thoughts?

5. Lady Brett Ashley from The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway

Hemingway isn’t the best writer of female characters, so I would love to learn more about Lady Ashley and truly hear her voice.

Which characters do you think are worthy of their own books?

  1. Hmmm…that’s an interesting question to ponder. You two both came up with some great answers!

    Interestingly, Orson Scott Card did exactly this with his big hit, Ender’s Game. He wrote a companion novel called Ender’s Shadow which was the same story but told from the perspective of Bean. It was really, really good and amazing how interesting it was when you already knew the story just to change the perspective. I wish more authors would do that!

    • I hadn’t realized that Ender’s Shadow was told by Bean! I abandoned Ender the first time I read it, but it was years ago. I have thought about trying again.
