Good morning, Hub readers!

Last week, we asked you to choose the upcoming YA sequel you’re most looking forward to reading this spring. According to our results, your top pick was Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor, with 35% of the vote, followed by City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare and Nantucket Red by Leila Howland, which tied for 17%. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted, and happy reading when those books come out!

This week, we want to know which secondary character in YA lit deserves a book of their own. Or maybe even a whole series, a la Magnus Bane from Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments books!  Which supporting character do you think deserves the chance to be a protagonist? Vote in the poll below or add your suggestion in the comments if we left out a good one.

    I think Lila Zacharov from Holly Black’s “The Curse Workers” series should have her own series of books. I loved reading the “13 Stories” Black had on her website before “Dark Heart” came out, but now, since you can no longer read them, I crave to read more from Lila’s perspective.

    And, speaking of Laini Taylor’s Smoke & Bone series, I think Brimstone from the first volume deserves a book of his own. I bet he’s got a fascinating backstory!

    My only answer can be Jimmy Hailler. Come on, Melina Marchetta…
