Top Ten Tuesday is a lovely original feature/weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week we’re talking about characters we absolutely adore… those characters that you wish had entire books dedicated to their awesomeness. I don’t really know if I need this in my life–I definitely don’t need more feels to feel if you know what I mean. But, here it goes anyways! There are some spoilers for Mockingjay in here… so, if you haven’t read that book yet… beware.
Also, most of these are men… I swear, I’m not obsessed. I read more female-driven books than male-driven books, so I’m more likely to want to read more about the males in my reading life.
1. Gale (Hunger Games)
Okay, so let’s be real for a second. What the flippin’ flapjack cracker happened to Gale at the end of Mockingjay? Oh, that’s right– nobody freakin’ knows. Peeta this… Peeta that. Peeta my FOOT! Now don’t get me wrong, I ain’t one of those Team Peeta crazies (no offense if you are a Peeta lover), but I would like to know what happened to one half of the love triangle after Peeta ran off with Katniss. I’d just like a book detailing his life after being ditched by Katniss–that jerk.
Also, if you get this gif’s reference, ten points for you! And, if you don’t, check it out here and consider yourself good!
2. Ash (The Iron Fey series)
I can never get enough of the character of Ash… I’d love to know about his life before meeting Megan Chase. Ya know, the basic details about his love life, battles with gobblins, Winter Court quabbles, etc. I’d gobble that stuff up.
Julie Kagawa? You game?
3. Rhett Butler (Gone with the Wind)
4. Dee (Lux series)
I’d really love to know more about Dee’s life. She’s such a spunky, fun-loving character (most of the time anyways). While I got glimpses of her life through her friendship with Katy, I still want to know her! And, I’d absolutely love to see her POV of the events of all of the Lux books. I think Dee Black and I would be friends in real life, but her positivity would probably rub me the wrong way at times.
5. Fitzwilliam Darcy (Pride and Prejudice)
Come on ladies, I can’t be the only one that has wanted to know Darcy’s history. What was he like before meeting the beguiling and lovely Elizabeth Bennet? WHERE ARE YOU WHEN I NEED YOU, JANE AUSTEN?!
6. Rooster (The Bible)
So, I know this is on all your minds, so I’m just going to go ahead and speak up. Whatever happened to the rooster that crowed three times and let Peter know that he had messed up royally? I wanna know more about THE ROOSTER! Why doesn’t the Bible talk about the rooster’s life more? Ugh. Come on.
That’s it for this week! What are some book characters that you adore? Link up and let’s chat. ❤
