I’m linking up today with That Artsy Reader Girl for Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Secondary Characters Who Deserve Their Own Books

(In no particular order)

Project Hail Mary (IYKYK!)
I definitely think Rocky deserves his own book! Would you agree?


Lady’s Tan’s Circle of Women
I would love a story from Meiling’s point of view.

Sayuri Konachi

A story from the point of view of the eccentric and unique librarian in What You Are Looking For is in the Library would be interesting!

A story from the point of view of the zoo director in West With Giraffes might be informative and historically interesting as she was the world’s first woman zoo director.

John Kinsella (“Tulip’s” foster father)

The father in Foster is a character I’d like to hear from. He’s the only one who gives the foster child who lives with them a name (affectionate nickname) and the poignant ending reveals a close relationship. He seems tenderhearted and compassionate and is a character I’d like to know better.


When Maureen (from The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry) travels north in an effort to deal with her grief over her son’s death, she stays with Kate. I’d love to know more about this compassionate, practical, and understanding person.

Mrs. Florescu

In I Must Betray You, seventeen-year-old Cristian Florescu is blackmailed by the Romanian secret police to become an informer. His mother works for a U.S. ambassador. I wonder about her and her betrayals from her perspective that enabled her to keep her job and care for her family.


In Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, Raymond befriends Eleanor. I’d like a story from his perspective and to learn more about this compassionate friend.

Mrs. Mukesh

In The Reading List we learn about widower Mukesh’s wife through his remembrances; she seems like a woman I’d like to know!


In The Girl From the Channel Islands, we meet Dorothea who is a wonderful friend to Hedy during the occupation of the Channel Islands during WWII. I wish we could have a story from Dorothea’s perspective because a google search reveals that she was awarded the prestigious “Righteous Among Nations” award posthumously.

  1. Interesting list. I’m only familiar with a couple of these books but haven’t actually read them yet, though they are on my TBR. Can’t wait to read them and see these characters.

  2. Great list Carol. I remember some of these characters from my reading of some of these books. I guess that means they were memorable. ๐Ÿ˜Š
