TTT: Ten Characters I would Love to Revisit as Adults

 

top ten tuesdayTop 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.

ChildhoodCharacters

  • 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.

    1. I know 😦 I am afraid that my heart will be broken if she went the Gus way. She was an amazing character though.

  1. I LOVED Sweet Valley! I also got to read it through to Sweet Valley University! Teen days were everything. Did you have an opportunity of reading ‘Dawson’s Creek?’ I loved the series and the book even more.
    Scout was my favorite character in the Mocking Bird book. I really need to get my hands on The Book Thief. Thanks for sharing.
    Keep warm

    1. Sweet Valley series was awesome, I remember how we used to have a waiting line in high school while circulating the books around. Glad to meet another fan 😉 I missed out on Dawson Creek though. I have never read it or watched the show. I hope that you will love the Book Thief as much as I did. Its a beautiful book. Thanks for reading and keep warm too and dry especially if you are in Nairobi with this heavy rains.

  2. There is that book Sweet Valley Confidential, that shows Jessica, Elizabeth and the gang 10 years in the future, but don’t read it because it totally RUINS everything. I’m still angry about that. But if some awesome fanfiction came along about the twins, Enid, Bruce, Lila, Cara, Jeffrey and the rest of the gang as they’d really be? I’d read the crap out of that!

    My TTT

    1. Thanks for the warning. I will stay away from Sweet Valley Confidential 🙂 I guess Jess and Elizabeth were great as they were and at the time that the books were set in. Thanks for reading. Heading over to your post now.

  3. What a brilliant list! 🙂 I loved so many of these books. I’d be especially intrigued to see what became of Nancy Drew!

    1. Thanks and glad you loved them too. I bet Nancy Drew would some awesome PI or detective by now 🙂

  4. I think I also read every single Sweet Valley High and Sweet Valley University series. I remember even starting over with the series in elementary school. I also envied the twins very much. I thought they were so incredibly cool and amazing.

    1. aw, great to hear that I am not the only one 🙂 Jessica and Elizabeth used to have the perfect lives with all their friends, dating lives and everything else. They really did seem amazing and cool back then 🙂

    1. Thanks and Nancy seems to have a number of fans. When I was a teen I thought she was the more brilliant person,working and figuring out all those clues.Perhaps she would have been a Private Investigator as an adult character 🙂 Thanks for the link. Heading over to your post now.

  5. 100% in agreement about Sweet Valley High. I’ve never read The Fault in Our Stars but I’ve seen the movie and would like to know where Hazel winds up in 10 years.

    1. I have never watched the movie. I should get it sometime soon. Thanks for reading and for the comment.

    1. hahaha those boys were brilliant. I was once requested to burn one of their books because the previous owner was a suspected DW lol, high school rumors. I had to read the book before burning it :-)Good times though and nice meeting another HB fans, not many people seem to know about the books.

    1. I guess he would be especially after all the trauma 😦 Thanks for reading and for the comment.

    1. Scout and Jack were such strong characters, they did make quite an impression.

      Thanks for the link. I am heading over to your post now.
