Top Ten Tuesday: Supporting Cast Members Who Stole the Show

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Ten Books That Feature Characters ____________: Examples: Ten books that feature black main characters, characters who hold interesting jobs, characters who have a mental illness, characters that are adopted, characters that play sports, etc, etc. This week I’m going with:

Supporting Cast Members Who Stole the Show Book

These are some of my favorite characters who should have been an MC.


1. Frank Sanger
This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills

Every chance I get, I tout Frank Sanger’s praises. He is one of my all time favorite characters. Frank Sanger truly stole the show. If Emma Mills were to write a book about him, I would send her a thank you card.

2. Tiny
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green

I know Tiny has since gotten his own book, but I couldn’t leave him off the list. Will Grayson, Will Grayson will always be my favorite John Green book simply because not so tiny Tiny made it shine.

3. Logan Kade
Fallen Crest High by Tijan

Okay, so Logan got his own novella, but I wanted an entire book or series about the guy. He’s just so funny.

4. Kyle
A Boy Like You by Ginger Scott

Kyle was such a supportive friend and all around great guy. I would love to see him go off to college to find his true love.

5. Noah
Where I Belong by J. Daniels

I really, really need Noah to grow up and for J. Daniels to tell his love story. It has to be with Dylan’s daughter from Sweet Addiction series. If you’ve read the books, you know why!

6. Trent
Wicked Restless by Ginger Scott

Honestly, this entire list could have been an ode to Ginger Scott’s side characters. There are so many who I’ve wanted to become main characters over the years. Trent is one that I have wished would get his own book for years.

7. Colt
Don’t Tempt Me by Lori Foster

I would love for Colt to get an NA book all about him. He seems like a really great kid who has gone through a lot of tough times. I would like to see him make friends and experience his new high school.

8. Jackson James
Truth or Beard by Penny Reid

Jackson is Jessica’s older brother. He seems like a big jerk, but I think he’d make an excellent MC. I’m sure there is more to him than what I’ve met so far. Plus, I love Penny Reid’s humor and I can only imagine what predicaments she would put the police officer through.

9. George (or any of the other Garretts)
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick

Anyone who has read My Life Next Door cannot get enough of the Garrett family. I’m one of those people. They’re a close knit, amazing bunch of people. I specifically picked George because his facts kill me. I love them!

10. Earl
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews

This is an odd choice for me. I did not really like this book. I couldn’t stand Greg, but I loved Earl. I think he would make a way better MC. I wouldn’t mind seeing the world through his point of view.


After finishing my list, I noticed that all of these characters are male. I’m not sure what that says about the books I’ve read. I know many of the female characters I love get their own books because they’re usually in series. Maybe that’s it? I hope that’s it.

  1. I wish I would remember more about some books. Logan was definitely a character that stood out and deserved his own HEA. But many of the books you mentioned, even though I read them, I don’t remember enough about them to know the character you picked – I’m getting old.;-(

  2. I haven’t read any of these! My memory is SO bad – I wish I could remember more details of the books I read. I know there have been awesome supporting characters that I’ve loved – I just can’t remember! Lol.

  3. Oh, great list here! I can just imagine a book where George Garrett would be the lead character. It would be filled with awkward facts and questions and just… well, it’d be so fun to read ahah 🙂

  4. I haven’t read any of these but I love that you are giving attention to supporting cast members. They deserve more attention. I have some favorites in that department haha.
