top ten characters who need their own book
posted by soe 2:14 am

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday from That Artsy Reader Girl invites us to share the Secondary/Minor Characters Who Deserve Their Own Book:

    1. Gigi, Eve, Dani, and Chloe’s grandmother, from the Brown Sisters’ trilogy by Talia Hibbert
    2. Cal, the carpenter, from Travis Baldree’s Legends and Lattes
    3. Ginger, who lives in a lighthouse, from Linda Holmes’ Flying Solo
    4. Gwyn the cousin from The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling (This is cheating, because she absolutely has her own book, but I haven’t read it yet.)
    5. Ainsley, the new friend, in Sonya Lalli’s Serena Singh Flips the Script
    6. Dex, the BFF, from Kate Racculia’s Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts
    7. Georgie and Clem from The Greenglass House series by Kate Milford
    8. Sofia, the daughter, in Amor Towles’ The Gentleman from Moscow
    9. Berta, the housekeeper and crime-investigating partner, in Maia Chance’s The Discreet Retrieval Agency series
    10. Palamedes, the knight, from Michael Scott’s The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series (again, cheating, because I know Scott wrote short stories to fill in the back stories, but my list my rules)

This was way harder than I expected it to be after the first character.

Category: books. There is/are 2 Comments.

Gwyn would be a fun character to get a book for.

I’ve only read The Brown Sisters series from your list, but Gigi is a great choice! I just recently read Evvie Drake by Linda Holmes, but I immediately added Flying Solo to my tbr. I’m happy to see it on your list. Happy reading!
