TTT: Ten Characters I would Love to Revisit as Adults
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, bloggers get a topic which entails giving a list of ten things based on the topic.
Today’s topic was Childhood Characters that I would like to revisit. However, I decided to mix it up a little bit. On my list. I have some childhood characters and others are Y/A and children characters from my favorite books that I would like to revisit.
- Nancy from the Nancy Drew series – I read so many books from this series. I loved and admired Nancy Drew. I wouldn’t mind revisiting the young detective.
- Jessica and Elizabeth from the Sweet Valley Series. As a teen, I read Sweet Valley High and then the Sweet Valley University series. I was envious of Jessica and Elizabeth and wanted their lives back then.
- Frank and Joe Hardy in The Hardy Boys by Franklin Dixon- another series that I read in my teens. I would like to know what happened to the boys. Perhaps they grew up and became detectives in another series, yes? No? Okay, maybe not.
- Veronica Mars– Another series that I loved. I also used to watch the TV Show.
Favorite teen couples
- Anna and Etienne St. Clair in Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins- The book ended when the relationship was just starting. It would be nice to know how the two ended up.
- Ben and Fallon in November 9 by Colleen Hoover- Their relationship sort of revolved around the one date and they had only met about 5 times in 5 years. I wonder how everything worked out for them.
- Hazel from the Fault in our Stars by John Green- Oh Hazel, so many questions.
Child Narrators from my favorite books
- Scout in To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee- I liked this young, brave girl.
- Leisel in The Book Thief- I know death told us a bit about Leisel’s life but I still would have liked to know more about how she ended up.
- Jack in Room by Emma Donoghue- Jack spent the first seven years of his life locked up in a room where he watched his mother get raped almost daily. He also lived through his mother’s suicide attempt. So many bad things happened to this little; brave boy. I wish there was a second book about him perhaps with a happy ending.
- Handful in The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd- Handful grew up as a slave and the books ends with her escape from slavery. I wouldn’t mind knowing about her life as a free woman.
Those are some of the characters that I would like to revisit. Which characters would you like to revisit? Please feel free to share the links to your TTT posts.
