Today’s topic is a super fun one! I’m a huge supporter of colorful secondary characters in books, so I had a difficult time putting this too-short list together!
10. Lily in The Cinderella Moment. This is a great, classic, switching-places YA, and Lily is the quirky best friend whose head I’d love to peek inside.
9. Primrose Everdeen in The Hunger Games. We only ever see Primrose through the eyes of her big sister, so seeing who Prim is around other people would be interesting.
8. The Lasalle boys in Of Breakable Things. This family of super fun boys enjoying the afterlife is cool on so many different levels. I’d love to see a book from any of the boys’ points of view.
7. Emily Young in Twilight. Now, I’m not a huge Twilight fan, but I’d actually love a book that dove deeper into the Native American culture through Emily Young and Sam Uley’s relationship.
6. Johnny in The Outsiders. I had a crush on pretty much every greaser, but I’m fairly certain Johnny’s mind would make for the most interesting read.
5. Isaac in The Fault in Our Stars. Isaac was a really funny and clever character who underwent a devastating life change. I’d love to see his story through the lens of his own dark humor.
4. Ginny Weasley in Harry Potter. To be honest, I always felt like Ginny was an incredibly flat character considering the important role she played. A book from her point of view would certainly help!
3. Samwise Gamgee in Lord of the Rings. I would love a book from Sam’s point of view! He’s such a cool guy! The ultimate BFF.
2. Moaning Myrtle in Harry Potter. Wouldn’t you love to hear firsthand about her time alive?
1. Gollum in The Lord of the Rings. Okay, this might be a little annoying considering how Gollum speaks, but think of the character arc! Hobbit to Gollum? That’s a bigger fall than Walt in Breaking Bad!
What characters would you guys love to see score their own book?
