Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s prompt is Top Ten Characters You’d Like to Check In With and is described as being characters in books/series that are 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”.
I can’t talk about them without spoiling the last book in the series, so here’s a list in no particular order:
1) Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire (and Beatrice Snicket!)
From Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events (13 books)
2) Artemis Fowl (and Butler and Holly, obviously)
From Eoin Colfer’s Artemis Fowl series (8 books)
3) Charlie Bone and friends
From Jenny Nimmo’s under-rated Children of the Red King series (8 books)
4) Aislinn, Seth, Donia, Keenan, Niall, and the other faeries
From Melissa Marr’s Wicked Lovely series (5 – technically 6 – books)
5) The Vampirates crew
From Justin Somper’s Vampirates series (6 books)
6) Gemma, Felicity, Ann, and (maybe) Pippa
From Libba Bray’s Gemma Doyle trilogy (3 books)
7) Bartimaeus the demon
From Jonathan Stroud’s Bartemaeus Sequence (4 books)
8) Lydia, Emily and Cassie (and their respective boyfriends)
From Jaclyn Moriarty’s The Year of Secret Assignments (standalone, but technically part of the Ashbury/Brookfield books)
Sidenote: I love that it’s called Finding Cassie Crazy in the UK.
Fun fact: I have an ARC of it, and it was the first time I learned that there was such as thing as advanced copies (I was 14 and my sister had got it from work).
9) Audrey/James, Victoria/Jonah
From Robin Benway’s Audrey, Wait! (standalone)
10) ALL THE WITCHES AND WIZARDS FROM Harry Potter
Do I even need to tell you who wrote this series?
Sidenote: Yeah, there’s all the extra content on Pottermore, so maybe I’d get my fix if I actually logged in once in a while, but I’m sure most HP fans will agree: sometimes I just want random details about their day-to-day lives. In book form. So that I can read it forever.
Rachel Watts and James Mycroft
From Ellie Marney’s Every series
Technically the last book has not been released in North America, but I’ve read it and it was wonderful, and I just want 5346984 more stories about Rachel and James. Wattscroft forever!
