Reading Song of the Day: “Spotlight” by Jennifer Hudson
Wednesday–middle of the week, the slowest day b/c you just can’t wait for Friday to get here…but also: Road Trip Wednesday time with the ladies at YA Highway. This week they wanna know:
What supporting character from a YA book would you most like to see star in their own novel?
This is one of the most awesome questions ever! And we knew EXACTLY what two characters we loved enough to read an entire novel based on them. Read on:
*Lindsay from Lauren Oliver’s Before I Fall. While reading this amazing book, we got a chance to know Samantha Kingston throughout the novel. We understood her by the end AND we got to see her redeem herself. But what about Lindsay? I mean, we kinda get why she behaves the way she does by novel’s end, but me and Pam are DYING to know more about Lindsay’s personal life. We want to see what she’s truly like behind the bitchy comments and the thick wall she puts up.
*Four from Veronica Roth’s Divergent. I mean, really–do we need to say more than that? Four is the epitome of hotness. Rough, elusive, sarcastic, strong, smart. We couldn’t get enough of Four while following Tris’ adventures. Every time we turned the page, we were hoping Four would show up again. How cool would it be if there was an entire book dedicated to Four’s background (which, hello, from the taste of it we get in Divergent is pretty intriguing and dramatic) and his feelings about Tris before he makes them known? We really hope Veronica’s reading this post and strongly considers writing a book from Four’s POV :D
Okay, we’re done rambling now. What co-star in a YA novel would you love to see move to center stage?
