Six for Sunday: Baddies Who Deserve Their Own Story
The prompts for June are themed around bookish wishes and today’s is all about baddies who deserve their own stories. I imagine quite a few people will pick a couple of these answers.
[The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo]
I think we all want to know what he did before Shadow and Bone begins.
[Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling]
I’d love to read about Tom Riddle’s time at Hogwarts. It could be a sort of mirror series of Harry’s journey.
[Macbeth by William Shakespeare]
Lady Macbeth has always intrigued me more than Macbeth so a story from her point of view would be fantastic.
The White Witch
[Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis]
A villain origin story about the White Witch could be amazing.
[Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie]
I know there are already some books out there about Captain Hook but I’d love more (especially if he’s anything like his character in Once Upon a Time).
[His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman]
A book from Mrs Coulter’s point of view has the potential to be great. I’d love to know her motivations and desires.
