#TopTenTuesday: Top 10 Characters I'd Like to Check in With

  • Tuesday, April 07, 2015

Yay, joining in once again in Top Ten Tuesday! Loved the convo's happening last week that I decided that these posts would be great for better interaction here.

For April 7, it's Top Ten Characters You'd Like To Check In With (meaning, the book or series is over and you so just wish you could peek in on the "life" you imagine they are leading years down the line after the story ends).

This is pretty random and since I couldn't just stick to one character per book/series, I put them all in.
Links out to my reviews, if available.

Cosette and Marius in Les Miserables by Victor Hugo*
After an intense courtship and what they had gone through, who can't help but wonder. I have a vision of golden haired children and a large sprawling house ... and lots of singing ;)

Griffin and Sabine in the The Griffin and Sabine Trilogy by Nick Bantock
Because we want to know what happens in a grand romance, right? Why I still don't own all three books, I don't know! Ugh.


Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist in the Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson
This was soooo good. You can read my reviews here: The Girl with the Dragon TattooThe Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. I heard ages ago that there is a manuscript for a Fourth Book. That was ages ago! Has anyone heard anything else?

Marnie, Nelly and Lennie in The Death of Bees by Lisa O'Donnell
Because these three deserve to be happy.  

Paloma in The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
I need to know -- she'd depicted on the cover. She talked about an early death often but knowing that she changed her mind, I think she must be a lovely woman. Find out about this touching and philosophical story through my review.

Budo in Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend by Matthew Dicks
It's tough enough to be an imaginary friend, but when Max no longer needed Budo, I wonder whether he may have become someone else's new imaginary friend? Here's my review.

Charlie Bucket in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
He must be making some wondrous candy. I wonder if he'll do the Golden Ticket route when he grows old and gray and need to find an heir?

Matilda in Matilda by Roald Dahl 
Because a precocious young girl will become a precocious young woman. I am thinking she still must have a bit of the naughty streak in her, despite probably living an exceptionally upright life ;) Here's my review. If you haven't read this, I am appalled.


Aren't you even a bit curious? How is his rose? Has he aged? I so love this book, I even bought the pop-up version!

Alice, the White Rabbit and the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll
Again, another childhood classic I love whose protagonist I will also wonder about.  And how could I forget about the White Rabbit or the Cheshire Cat? 


It'd be pretty cool if these characters were real people! Which character/s would you like to catch up with?
