Top Ten Characters I’d Like to Check in With

TTTcustombannerAs usual, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the fantastic blog The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s topic is “Top Ten Characters You Want To Check in With.”

1) Teddy Lupin from Harry Potter– I know wanting to check in with the second generation of Harry Potter characters will probably be on everyone’s list today, but I couldn’t help myself! I loved the parallelism between Harry and Teddy’s characters and would love to see what he (and all of his various cousins since, you know, everyone’s related now) is up to now!

2) Mia Thermopolis from The Princess Diaries– My favorite YA protagonist of all time, I’m so lucky that my dreams of following Mia further are coming true! I cannot thank Meg Cabot enough for writing The Royal Wedding!

3) Kate Quinn from The Wrong Side of Right– So I just finished this book this past weekend and I ADORED it. It was an excellent standalone but I became so invested in Kate’s life as the illegitimate daughter of a prominent politician that I really want to know what happens to her after becoming a part of her new family!

4) Amy & Nick from Gone Girl– Um, I really want to know what happens to that poor, poor child of theirs. And what twisted turns their marriage has taken since the end of the novel.

5) Nyx from Cruel Beauty– I loved this dark heroine from one of my favorite fairytale retellings ever, and I’d really love to read more about her the end of the dark fairytale. She was so wonderfully flawed and sassy and realistic that I would definitely want to read more about her adventures!

6) Carlisle Cullen from Twilight– For all of its faults, I loved the rich historical back story of the Cullens, and what they choose to pursue with their unlimited lifespan. In particular I’d like to know what amazing sort of medical strides Carlisle has made, and if/how he’s managed to help more vampires get in touch with their humanity.

7) Mara Dyer from The Mara Dyer Trilogy– The last book left SO many things unanswered, and had me doubt everything that I’d read! I really want to find out what happens to her, Noah, Jamie and the rest of the characters who are inflicted/gifted with powers!

8) Allyson & Willem from the Just One Day duology- So the novella Just One Night brought some closure, but after reading about what life-changing journeys the both of them went on after simply meeting, I want to know how actually, finally being together impacts their lives!

9) Grace Brisbane from The Wolves of Mercy Falls Trilogy– The ending lacked so much closure, I was SO MAD when I first read it. Nothing was conclusive, from the state of Grace and Sam’s relationships (wolves vs. humans) to the state of Grace’s future (college?) to the state of her relationship with her parents. I would LOVE an epilogue book, perhaps set a few years in the future!

10) Daemon & Katy from The Lux Series– I know it’s implied that hybrid babies are super dangerous and stuff, but I really want them to make perfect alien babies together.

Who do you want to check in with? Did any of my picks crossover to your lists? Did you go with characters that lacked closure, or ones who you want to see how their families turned out? Link me up to your TTT posts in the comments!

  1. Loved reading about all the characters you’d like to check in with! I also did a TTT today, and I picked the characters mainly because I did not reach closure at the end of the book and also because I just crave more of the character and more of the world they live in!

    • I had been waiting since the prologue of the first book to get answers, and I feel like they were barely touched on by the end of the trilogy! I wish we had more closure, but regardless I’m sure this is a trilogy I will be rereading!

  2. I just reread some of the Just One Day duology over the weekend and you’re so right. I need more closure! Just One Night wasn’t nearly enough for me, I just love the characters so much and I would love to see Allyson and Willem’s relationship develop.

  3. A big YES to Teddy Lupin! And to Daemon & Kat. I would obviously say yes to pretty much anything about the wizarding world… And I really enjoyed the Lux series, it was so addicting! All of her books seem to be.

    Great list!

  4. Amy and Nick for sure! I’d love to know what’s going on in their lives after all that craziness and if they’re getting along… Also, Carlisle as well! I’d love to know more about his past and his future!

  5. Great list! I’ve seen a lot of Harry, Neville, Luna, Hermione, and Ron but you’re the first to say Teddy Lupin!! I love it! Amy and Nick is such a great choice, as well. I’d love to know how their “marriage” is coming along. I loved Carlisle, too! I liked his history and personality. I agree with everything you sad about Mara Dyer and her friends. I had to stop myself from reading what you wrote about Allyson and Willem just in case there were spoilers for Just One Year. Grace, Daemon, and Katy also made my list!

      • It’s okay 🙂 I just skipped it. I read it maybe 6 months ago. I liked it. It’s so weird because they we see them together for half the book, not even actually. But I loved them together! I was really sad when he wasn’t there the next morning. I liked that it wasn’t just their love story but how that led to Allyson’s self discovery and breaking out of what her parents wanted from her. I just recently bought Just One Year, so hopefully I’ll read it soon.

  6. I just want a series that’s the next generation of Harry Potter…Albus Severus, James, Lily, Rose, Hugo, Fred, Roxanne…I just want more Harry Potter, period.

    And Grace! I want to know what happens to Grace and Sam and if she decides to the try cure and everything else that happens. Awesome list.

    • Thank you! And yes! I was so frustrated with how vague and open ended the mercy falls series ended, especially since I felt like I went on such a journey with Grace and Sam! I really want to know how things panned out for them!

  7. Gone Girl didn’t cross my mind when I was working on my list, but now that you have mentioned it, I am dying to know about their baby! That poor kid is being born into a total mess.
