Top Ten Tuesday: Give These People a Book!

1. Ben from Paper Towns by John Green
Ben makes me laugh out loud when I read this book. But not only is he funny, he also has depth and changes and matures right next to Q.
Paper Towns review

2. Haasan from An Abundance of Kathrines by John Green
Basically, every Green main character's bff could have made this list. Haasan is hilarious and I would love to read his narrative voice. 
3. Magnus Bane from The Shadow Hunter Series
I really like Magnus Bane's personality. I know Clare has a novella series out that focuses on Magnus, but it's not enough! I want to learn more about his past romances and adventures and I really love his relationship with Alec. Also, while we are requesting books from Clare, I'd like a trilogy about Jem and Tessa please.
City Of Bones Review

4.  The Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll 
Part of the reason I really enjoyed Tim Burton's film adaption of this story was because of the level of depth that was given to the Mad Hatter. I would love to read about the exploits of Wonderland through the Mad Hatter's narration.

5. Irene Adler from A Scandal in Bohemia by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Irene is the woman! I love her wit and power in this novel and love how Holmes respects her. There is a series about her solving crimes by Carol Nelson Douglas, but I have yet to read it. She has such potential, I thinks she could withstand being the main character in many more books. 

6. The Lost Boys From Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
Peter Pan is my favorite story of all time. We have a YA book narrated by Tinker Belle (Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson) but now I want a book about the lost boys.


7. The Lisbon Sisters from The Virgin Suicides by Jeffery Ugenides
Then we would really know what was going on behind those closed doors and windows of the Lisbon house. I would love to learn more about the girls and why they did what they did. But then I guess that would take the mystery out of the story wouldn't it?
Virgin Suicides Review

8. Infinite Darline from Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan
Infinite Darline is truly infinite; she is larger than life. I love her outgoing and postive personality and the way she stands up for herself and her friends. I would love a book about her romantic endeavors.
Boy Meets Boy Review

9. Sturmhond from Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
I would love to read about Sturmhond's adventures as a pirateer! He's so funny and frustrating to those around him.
Shadown and Bone Review

10. Mary Bennet from Pride and Prejudice 
I love Mary Bennet's attitude and disdain for sappy romance in the novel. She is such a contrast to her two youngest sisters, and I would love to hear her narrate her annoyance with their obsession with young, handsome officers.
Pride and Prejudice Review


  1. A book about The Lost Boys would be great fun! I hope that happens at some point. Great list!

  2. I would also love to see some books with Irene Adler as an MC as longs as they didn't involve Sherlock Holmes. I hate when books/movies/tv-series try to turn their brief acquaintance into something more than what it was. Part of what fascinates me about her is that not only did she beat him, but she walked away from that and never looked back. I may check out the series you mentioned!

    1. So true! But I do think that Holmes is in at least one book of her series. I think she could be such a powerful and dynamic character if she was explored more.
      thanks for stopping by!

  3. Irene Adler and Mary Bennet are great choices! :D
