This weeks Top 5 Wednesday is all about side characters that deserve their own story. This one’s going to be tough.
1. Severus Snape – Harry Potter
If anyone deserves a series about their life, I truly believe it is Professor Snape. I would love to read a book from his perspective about being best friends with Lily, his time at Hogwarts, his life as a death eater and more and more and more. As I’ve said before on this blog, I love hearing both sides to every story. And Snape’s story is one of the most exciting ones I’ve ever almost heard.
2. Patrick – Perks of Being a Wallflower
I like Perks more the more I read it. And I am so interested in Patrick and his backstory. I would love to hear more about him, his family and where he goes in life and what he accomplishes.
3. Uriah – Divergent series
Could I talk more about “Divergent” on this blog? I’m sorry, I’ll stop soon (but I probably won’t.) Uriah is great! I loved him from the moment he was introduced in the series and I was always really happy when he made an appearance. I think he deserves his own story alongside Tris.
4. Valentine Morgenstern – City of Bones series
Who doesn’t like to read about villains backstories? I think it would be so interesting to find out how Valentine became the vindictive father he came to be. I only read the City of Bones series (I know about The Infernal Instrument series) and I believe they might go a little bit into the backstory. I might pick these books up soon just to see if they feature Valentine.
5. Big Brother – 1984
The overruling power of “1984”. This is my favorite book and I’d just love to know about how this world works. Therefore, I’d love a good look at the inside of the governing power.
