We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since January 2018 Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s topic is Characters I’d Love An Update On. Some characters just stick with you after you finish reading a book. There have definitely been books that when I was finished reading I wanted more about certain characters. Sometimes even side characters. Let’s take a look at some of my choices.
Stevie – Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
After binging this whole series recently I’ve become really attached to this gang of characters. Stevie is such an interesting character who is trying to figure out everything in her life. I would love to see how her last year of high school goes and what mystery she’ll solve next.
Liz & Wes – Better Than the Movies by Lynn Painter
Liz & Wes have a special place in my heart. At the end of the book they’re both off to college. I’d love to read about their college adventures. I loved their story so much I didn’t want it to end.
Patrick – The Guncle by Steven Rowley
Patrick was dealing with a lot of grief and when his best friend died it got even worse. Taking care of his niece and nephew gave him a new look on life and he learned to bring down the walls he was holding up. I would love to see how he’s doing a while after the ending of this book.
Cath – Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Cath has a series she loves and her love of this fandom has turned into a fanfiction. Being involved in this world has gotten her through a lot of tough times and I think the author showed how important fandoms can be. That being said after all she goes through I would love to see where she is a few years after the ending of Fangirl.
Cassandra – The How and the Why by Cynthia Hand
The How and the Why was such an emotional read. Cassandra decides to look for her birth mother and we get a look at the life of the woman she’s looking for as well. While I completely understand why the author chose to end the book the way she did, I would love a little glimpse of how things continued. What happened after the last page of that book?
Noelle – I’m Dreaming of a Wyatt Christmas by Tiffany Schmidt
I loved the holiday spirit in I’m Dreaming of a Wyatt Christmas and how the main character really started thinking about what she wanted and how to talk about her feelings. For me it ended just a bit too open. I would’ve loved just a few more scenes (including a chat with her dad) to see how everything plays out. Maybe even a little sneak peek at a few years later.
Linus & Arthur – The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune
The House in the Cerulean Sea is one of my favorite books and one I think of frequently. I grew attached to all of the characters and I would love to know how Linus, Arthur, and all of the amazing children are doing.
Kiera – Slay by Brittney Morris
Slay was such an amazing book and Kiera is a character I still haven’t forgotten. At the end of the book she is at the beginning of an amazing journey and I’d love to see how that all developed. She was meant for amazing things and I would love to read more.
