Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week I will make a list of 10 books, authors or other bookish things surrounding a certain topic. Today, the topic is “Ten Childhood Characters You’d Love To Revisit As Adults”.
Frodo and Pippin // The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien // Doesn’t anyone else wonder what life is like for Frodo after he left? How does it look like? TELL ME. I want to know how he is. And I know Pippin didn’t join him, but he’s my favorite so I have to know what happens later on in his life. I know I’ll never get it, but wouldn’t anyone else like an epilogue-book? 20 years later, how is everyone doing? I know it’ll never happen though.
Percy and Annabeth // Percy Jackson & the Olympians by Rick Riordan // I think this is mainly because I have trouble letting go. But I also want to know how they do with adulthood and adulting in general. I can see Percy being very nonchalant about it all, and Annabeth being very meticulous, paying every single bill immediately. I want to know.
Literally everyone // Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling // I know we got a little epilogue at the end of the last book. But that was like 1 chapter! I need more.
Eragon // The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini // What happens to Eragon after the end? What is his life like? I feel like these questions might actually be answered one day because he is planning on writing a fifth book in the series. No one knows when that will happen though… (sad face).
Elisa // Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson // I truly loved this trilogy. A big reason for that is because I loved Elisa’s character. She’s not a typical YA heroine, and I admire her so much. So I want to know, 20 years later, what’s happening?
Eli // Legend of Eli Monpress by Rachel Aaron // If you’ve been a follower of my blog for a little while, you probably know I love this series. Eli is just an amazing character. So I want to catch up! What have you been doing lately, Eli?
Ari & Dante // Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz // This is one of my favorite contemporary reads. It’s very much character-driven, which I highly enjoy. I felt so much for these two characters. My heart was just filled with love for them. And I’d like to know how the rest of their lives went.
Kristin // None of the Above by I.W. Gregorio // Again, another memorable contemporary read. This is about a girl named Kristin, who finds out she’s intersex. I’d like to know how Kristin’s life turned out, after the ending. How is adulthood treating her?
I know that’s only 8, but oh well. That were 8 characters I’d love to revisit! Have you read any of these books? Do you agree with me?
