Happy Wednesday! This weekly bookish meme was created by gingerreadslainey and you can check out the Goodreads group for more information. This week’s topic is side characters that deserve their own series. I like this topic because there is always so much focus on the main characters, but the side characters are just as important. The side characters are the ones who influence the main character and make them who they are. They are also amazing fodder for fanfiction (wink, wink).
5) Rachel (Syrena Legacy TrIlogy)
Okay, this may be a tad biased because I am currently listening to Of Triton, but Rachel is just awesome. She is ex-mob and will do anything for Galen. Her the fact that she is supposed to be dead, yet has the abilities to sneak around the government with Rayna and Galen, who are also not supposed to exist as humans is so kick-ass I cannot even deal with it.
4) Etienne St. Clair (Anna and the French Kiss)
While I love Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door, I feel like St. Clair is romanticized in these books to be the perfect boyfriend, which is just not okay. I feel like there is much more to him then the reader sees and could be revealed in his own series.
3) Rayna Forza (Syrena Legacy Trilogy)
Another possibly slightly biased character, BUT I just admire Rayna. She is so incredibly sassy and strong and does not take anything from anyone. Rayna knows what she wants and gets it, yet she is still a kind-hearted person (syrena?) and will protect her loved ones.
2) Metias Iparis (Legend Trilogy)
Hmm…I have been trying to figure out how to explain this one without any spoilers…While we did not see much of Metias in the trilogy, he was a huge part of June’s life. He made a difference where he lived, yet dealt with so many personal issues. I believe his story would be quite interesting to read about.
1) Ginny Weasley (Harry Potter)
I mean, who grows up in a wizard family, being the only daughter of seven children, with no stories to tell? I would love to hear stories about the Weasley family when all seven kids lived at home, before they met Harry. I bet meal time was always exciting in that house.
