Top Five Wednesday 7/22/15

Today's Top Five Wednesday topic is Side Characters Who Deserve Their Own Series.

I had originally decided not to do this topic this week because I couldn't think of any side characters. Then I thought of a couple and decided it wouldn't be that hard after all, so here we go.

One For the Money

Lula from the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich - I know there is a huge back story for Lula. She is so much character, there could definitely be a series about her.

The Cuckoo's Calling

Robin Ellacot from the Cormoran Strike novels by Robert Galbraith/J.K. Rowling - Robin is way more than she appears. She's a great assistant, but she has hidden reserves of logical thinking and acting skills which are excellent for detective work.

Falling in Love

Paola Brunetti from the Inspector Guido Brunetti series by Donna Leon - Paola is so interesting. She comes from the upper class but she married a cop. She teaches English at a University and she always has a philosophical monologue in the book about some social or ethical subject.

Harry Potter

Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling - because she is my favorite in the series and I would love a story written from her point of view.

The Night Circus

Tsukiko from The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern - Without giving anything away, Tsukiko's story would be a sequel to this book, but how entertaining would that be!!

So, I did find 5. Do you have any to add?
