This week’s topic is –

Top Ten Characters You Wish Would Get Their Own Book

1. & 2  from Harry Potter

Sirius Black and Albus Dumbledore

Wouldn’t you love to know more about when Sirius meets James, or gets kicked out of the house by his crazy mother?  And what was Albus like as a kid?  Was he a know it all?

3.  from Macbeth

The Weird Sisters

These ladies are awesome- and pretty funny.

4.  from Rebecca

Mrs. Danvers

How did old Danny get so attached to Rebecca and why?

5. & 6.  from Lord of the Rings

Tom Bombadil and Legolas

I can’t even explain who Bombadil is- he just always was. Legolas now looks like Orlando Bloom in my mind, so of course I want more.

7.  from To Kill a Mockingbird

 Miss Maudie Atkinson

Why is she so nice?  Why isn’t she married?  Will she marry Atticus?  Buy Scout a dress?

8.  from The Stand

Ralph Bretner

We know more about the others who head West, but not much about Ralph.  Who was he before the plague?

9.  from Gone With the Wind

Ellen Robiard O’Hara

How did this elegant woman marry Gerald O’Hara?  How did she produce a child like Scarlet?

10.  from Jane Eyre

Bertha Mason

I need to know more about this crazy beauty.  Was she ever sane?  Did she want to marry Edward?

  1. Fun list! There is a book called The Weird Sisters that has nothing to do with Hamlet (or Harry Potter, for that matter), but it is a great read! Also, you should read Wide Sargasso Sea, which is all about the background of Bertha Mason. It may ruin your good opinion of Rochester, though, if you have a good opinion of him.

  2. Wow, fabulous list. Ellen O’Hara is a great choice — I’d absolutely love to know more of her backstory. Sirius Black is on my list as well (love him!), and I’d definitely read more about any of the LOTR characters.

  3. Seconding miathereader’s recommendation of Wide Sargasso Sea; it’s totally different in style and tone, but definitely worth a read if you’re interested in Bertha.
