The most disappointing thing for me with a book is the unused potential of certain characters. It annoys me when secondary characters are not paid much attention in a book because…it’s all about the chosen one.

There are some books I push through just to read more about the secondary characters. Does that happen to you? or am I the only one crying overt the secondary character’s burnt muffin rather than the MC’s lost powers?

 This week I decided it would a fun task to combine the prompts for Top Ten Tuesday and Top Five Tuesday. The prompts were Characters I liked That Were In Non-Favorite/Disliked Books and Top 5 books that need a prequel respectively.

Just note that the following books aren’t ones I hate or dislike, they’re simply books that are not a favourite. I enjoyed them during their time but they didn’t make my heart sigh, cry, and die.

Amarie Treadeau from Dangerous Creatures

You can blame me for this because I did not finish the series. My favourite character from The Caster Chronicles was Amarie Treadeau; I loved her supertitious and protective nature. Compared to the other characters, I found Amma to the most complex and well-developed. Revisiting Amma’s character now makes me want to re-read The Caster Chronicles just to know more about her.

Who wouldn’t want to see Viola Davis channel some magic??



Rosalie Hale from Twilight

How I wish Rosalie had gotten more attention! For those who haven’t read Twilight, Rosalie Hale to a wealthy family in the early 1900s New York. She was described as a shallow and vain human. Her vampire transformation occurred after she was gang-raped, beaten, and left for dead by her then-fiance. Once she became a vampire, Rosalie hunted down and killed her rapists WITHOUT SPILLING A DROP OF THEIR BLOOD.

This woman deserves her own book, I tell you.

The Girlfriend from A Wild Sheep Chase

One of the weirdest novels I’ve ever read! Just like any novel by Murakami everyone and everything is ambiguous. What do I know about the girlfriend beyond the power of her ears?

Yes, ears.

What I understood from the book is that she has some sort of intuitive power because of her ears.

Even though we know NOTHING about her, I feel like she’s the driving force behind the narrator. Or the novel, rather! But who is she????

Torwin from The Last Namsara



I love Torwin’s character so much. He’s a rogue slave in the book who is fiercely driven to fight for freedom and Asha! The chemistry between him and Asha is very challenging and in spite of shipping them, I believe, there’s so much more development needed for their characters. I’m interested to know about his life before Asha, and his family relationship. I want to say more but I worry it may spoil the book.


Jack Dawkins aka Artful Dodger from Oliver Twist

There’s something about Artful Dodger that made me curious about his background. I always wondered about how he got onto the streets and his pick-pocketing skills. According to the book, he shows a lot of respect for Fagin, so I always imagined that he better himself as a criminal to gain Fagin’s approval, being the only parental figure in Jack’s life. I think I’d end up crying if I ever got to read Jack’s prequel.

    Very interesting spin combining the two topics! I totally agree with Rosalie! She ended up being one of my favourites. You’re right, she was shown as a selfish and shallow person but in the end it proved just how loyal and loving she was. I would be perfectly fine with a book all about her!
    Thanks so much for participating – added you to the list 🙂

    I haven’t read the other books, but I super agree with you about prequels/own books for Rosalie Hale and Amma. For Amma, not only would it be great to see more black main characters, everything that Amma did or said in the books made me wonder what she was like as a young woman, how she developed her abilities and respect for the other side, how she came to the Wate family, etc.

    As for Rosalie, HOLY SHIT YAS. Actually, I would literally read a book about the other Cullens’ lives before they got sucked into Bella and Edward’s sappy love story. Carlisle, the preacher who used to hate vampires and who survived by living in the London sewers? Esme, who tried committing suicide? Yes, Rosalie, WHO IS A DRAMA QUEEN THAT ABSOLUTELY DESERVED HER CHANCE AT REVENGE. Alice’s time in an asylum? JASPER LEADING A VAMPIRE CIVIL WAR? Come on!!!!

    Oh perfect! I don’t participate in this, but I saw the prompt and I was thinking if I like the characters I usually like a book, didn’t even think about secondary characters! Wonderful post!😍

    Apart from Twilight, I haven’t read ANY of these books and now I don’t know whether to TBR them or not.

    The Last Namsara is already on my TBR though, so I’ll start there. For some reason rogue, underdog slave characters always get me!


  5. Charvi says:

    I haven’t actually read any of the books you mentioned except for Twilight and that was a long time ago. But yes, I do agree that I often read a book or even series just for the love if secondary characters 😍


  6. emmareadstoomuch says:

    someone tell me why the main characters from twilight are the worst ones??? bella: boring. edward: boring. jacob: bo-ring. everyone else? pretty tolerable. a rosalie prequel would be rad!


  7. Cait @ Paper Fury says:

    Aww YES I always loved Dodger!! I could totally handle a book about him too! And it’s funny but sometimes the secondary characters are way more interesting, right?!😂


  8. Daniela Ark says:

    I did not finish the Caster series either and I always wonder if I should give it another try 🙂
    I totally agree about Rosalie! I wished there has been much more about her!


  9. Evelina @ AvalinahsBooks says:

    The girl with the ears is mentioned a lot in the sequel, if I’m not mistaken 🙂 so you should read it xD but yes, I agree, she is a big driving force in the story. Murakami just does that with secondary (and tertiary xD) characters 😀 haven’t really read the others (apart from Oliver Twist, which I do not remember), so I can’t say more 🙂 and I’m sure I would be able to find some secondary characters I would love to hear more about, but currently all I can think of is Luna from HP 😀 she should have her own series!!
