This is such a fun topic! My favorite assignment from high school (probably the only assignment I remember) was to rewrite a passage from one of my favorite books through a minor character’s POV. I love thinking about stories from other characters views so let us begin.
1. Archer Cross and Jenna Talbot from Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins — I am aware that he has some…. baggage but I think that would make for such an interesting book! I would love to know all about his past and his dealings with The Eye, I think it could make for a fun book. I also adored Jenna’s character and would love to read about her vampire ways.
2. Cameron Halston from Spies and Prejudice by Talia Vance — PEOPLE! I push this book in every possible circumstance because I loved this book! Read it. I have a weakness for intelligent men who are funny and Tanner, the main character’s love interest, fits the bill! He is AWESOME. Oh humans, I sure do like Tanner; he is smug, sexy, intelligent, and hilarious, my kind of book boyfriend! I loved reading Spies and Prejudice through Berry’s eyes but I would like a book through Tanner’s eyes.
3. Benny Baker (aww) from Something Real by Heather Demetrios — Benny was my favorite character in Something Real and that is saying a lot because Patrick Sheldon exists in this novel. He added so much to this book and I just loved everything about him. He was a lot more grounded than Chloe but I really enjoyed their interactions together. I love siblings (being as my sister is my best friend) and it was wonderful to read about. I think that a story about Benny would be hilarious and thoroughly interesting.
4. Tom Imura from Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Maberry — I read two and a half books just so that I could learn more about Tom Imura. He is a literary man and I LOVED him; I was incredibly bored by the recycled plot but oh boy, I wasn’t bored by Tom. He is a famous zombie hunter who humanely kills zombies and people, more like crazies, fear him. FEAR HIM. From my psychology background, I just wanted to talk with him and find out the intricacies of his mind because he is brilliant. PLEASE, I need more!
5. Remus Lupin from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (and the remainder of the series) by J. K. Rowling — So many people get caught up in Harry or Ron but Lupin is where it is at! There are so many reasons that I want books about Lupin: he married the coolest person, he’s incredibly intelligent, he’s everything. It still upsets me that he didn’t get a proper death in the final book.
6. Brian Nelson and Curtis Schwenk from Dairy Queen by Catherine Gilbert Murdock — Oh humans, this might be my favorite series ever; at least it was in high school. Brian Nelson is the the punk football player who STOLE MY HEART in high school. I would love nothing more than to read a book about him. I just love him. That assignment I mentioned earlier, I wrote about Curtis, the main character’s brother. Catherine has since written a book completely in his POV; I like to think I inspired it. 🙂
7. Lucien Armstrong from Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson — Lucien, for those who don’t remember, is a minor character who Amy and Roger meet along their journey; he is Roger’s ex-girlfriend’s brother who lets them stay with them and ends up being quite a crucial characters for two spoilerly reasons. I obviously didn’t want him to be with Amy but I did thoroughly enjoy his character and I would love for him to get a happy ending as well.
8. Levi Unknown Last Name from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell — Oh Levi, you are my ultimate book boyfriend. I adore you so. I would LOVE to read a book about Levi because it would be so entertaining and heartfelt and just wonderful.
Thanks for reading!
