WARNING: Some bad words might be used in the following post. Don't say I didn't warn you!

Hello dear book lovers and welcome to another Wednesday Chatter post! Today I want to talk to you about some characters that I wish would get their own books. Unfortunately, I will probably always just keep on dreaming about one of these characters getting their own story. A girl can dream, right?

1. Samwise Gamgee - Lord Of The Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

I've said it once and I'll say it again: one pf the true heros of The Lord of the Rings is Sam. He's the brave one that has everything to lose, that doesn't know where he's going, that is totally devoted to a guy he considers his "master", while Frodo whines. Yeah, yeah, he agreed to take the Ring into Mount Doom, but I can't help but think Frodo just wanted to emulate his uncle, Bilbo. I would love to know what happens to Sam after he gets married, after Frodo takes the ship to the Undying Lands. I want to know about his family.

2. Georgiana Darcy - Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

While I've always had a crush on Mr. Darcy, I always wondered about his sister. Georgiana is a mystery, and besides the fact that Wickham had previously tried to get her to fall in love with him and eventually marry him, I know nothing about her. From what I remember she was sweet, shy, and she saw her brother the way I would imagine she would have seen her father. I always wondered about that. I would definitely have loved to read a story about Georgiana all grown up.

3. Neville Longbottom - Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

Every now and again I wonder about the unfairness that Neville had to go through. Sure, I always sympathized with Harry, but I always hated when Neville was always made fun of, even by the narrator. I want to know what happened with Neville, I want to read about him growing up before getting to Hogwarts, I want to read about him meeting the woman or man of his dreams, I want to see him happy.

4. The Darkling - Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo

So... I haven't yet finished the Grisha trilogy, so I don't know the full story of the Darkling. But if there's one villain that has fascinated me since the first moment I met him on page, it's him. I am curious about him, and, much like any other villain, I want to know what makes him bad. Was he born bad, or was he made bad by his need for power? What made him devolve in his evilness? I know I probably would have the answers I need in the last book of the trilogy, but I would love a short story from his POV.

5. Savitar - Dark Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon

I am pretty sure he'll get his own book sometime in the future, but I would very much like for that future to be now. Savitar is the eccentric guy that loves surfing, sarcasm, and killing anything that annoys him. I would love to know his story, if somehow Appolymi is going to be his soul mate, the real reason behind him helping Acheron, the reason why he lives alone, away from anyone that might mean something to him. He loves power but he doesn't abuse it, and when he's not being sarcastic, he's a great guy. I need his story now.

Let's discuss. Which character deserves his or her own book in your opinion? Why?


  1. I love your choices! I definitely wanted to know so much more about Samwise after watching the LOTR movies. And Neville's story would be one to get me emotional :') I never put much though into Georgiana Darcy but now that you mentioned it, I would love to know hers.

    1. Right? Samwise Gamgee is fascinating and he deserves more attention. Yes, I am sure I'd cry if I ever got Neville's story. Georgiana is just one of those silent characters that have me wondering. Would she still be the quiet, shy young woman or would Elizabeth's influence make her come out of her shell? I'd love to see Darcy get his panties in a twist every time a man shows interest towards his sister as well *giggles*

  2. Ooooo, all of these sound like really interesting stories! I haven't heard of the Dark Hunter series, but I want to read it just based off of your description of Savitar. :)
