1) Shay – UGLIES by Scott Westerfield || Shay is badass. I want to know more about her story and how she got to be just so freakin’ badass. And I want to know her story of how she got involved with David and Smoke. And what made her change her mind about turning pretty.

2) Ginny Weasley – Harry Potter by JK Rowling || I wanna know what she was up to this whole time.

3) Bitterblue – GRACELING || I know, I know. she has her own story in the next book. BUT I would like to know the younger Bitterblue and more about her life during the time period of Graceling.

4) Ky Markham MATCHED by Ally Condie || I would like to know more about his point of the Rising and Cassia from the beginning and then end and more about his thoughts and turning points.

5) Primrose – HUNGER GAMES by Suzanne Collins || I would like to know what was going through her mind after her sister was taken from her and where she went from innocent young girl to the rebellious district 13 follower.

1) Sarene – Elantris by Brandon Sanderson || Sarene is one of the most enjoyable female characters I’ve read. She is super smart, independent, but also vulnerable without being completely weak. I would love to read more about her upbringing, especially her teenage years.

2) Charles “Dill” Baker – To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee || I immediately fell in love with Dill when he first appeared in the book. I just wanted more of him. I think if he had a book all about him, it would be a heartbreakingly hilarious adventure story.

3) Max Vandeburg – The Book Thief by Markus Zusak || MAX. MAX. MAX. Ugh. My heart goes overtime when I think about Max. I want to know everything about him. EVERYTHING. If you have read this book, you probably feel the same way.

4) Margaery Tyrell – A Song of Ice and Fire Series by George R.R. Martin || In the Song of Ice and Fire series, Margaery does not have her own chapters. She is always in someone else’s perspective. I would love to read about her and her grandmother’s plotting and what they’re thinking. Margaery has her own plan of what she wants to happen with the Iron Throne. She needs her own chapters. Get with it, George!

5) Edward Rochester – Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte || I really want to know how Rochester was as a boy and young man. We don’t get to know his past very well in the book; we just get a handful of his past. I’m not sure it would make the best book, but I think Jane Eyre lovers would like to learn more about him like I want to.

Corinna’s Picks

1) Minnie – Ten by Gretchen McNeil || Because she’s slowly going crazy and I want to know her full story of why.

2) Neil – Chain Letter by Christopher Pike || A murderer changes his mind and I’d like to see what was going through his head.

3) Charles Wallace – A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle || He’s just so cute and smart!!!

4) Shay – UGLIES by Scott Westerfield || She trusts someone and then gets stabbed in the back. She also gets turned pretty so all her thoughts about life are changed.

5) Sissy – Deep and Dark and Dangerous by Mary Downing Hahn || It would just be cool to read in the ghosts perspective.
