Top Ten Characters I'd Like to Check in With


Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

1. Leonard Peacock from Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock.

2. Charlie from The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

3. Hazel from The Fault in Our Stars. I mean, we know it's not going to end well for her, but I kind of feel like we all lost interest and abandoned her after the events of the story. But her story isn't over

4. Libby from Dark Places. Actually, I worry about all of Gillian Flynn's characters.

5. Sage from Almost Perfect

6. Auggie from Wonder. I can't imagine things would have gotten easier in high school, and I really hope he maintained his sense of humor and positive outlook.

7. Austin (and everyone) from Grasshopper Jungle

8. Tana from The Coldest Girl in Coldtown. I don't actually even remember how it ended, but I think it was sort of open and I'd really like to revisit this story.

9. Eleanor and Park from Eleanor and Park.

10. Petronella from The Miniaturist. She was so young and had to deal with a lot. I don't recall everything about how it ended (do I ever?) but she came into her own during the course of the story and I'd really like to see how things went for her later.

Most of these tend to be younger people, I guess because these books took place during their formative years and things could go so many ways after those times. What about you? Are there any characters you find yourself wondering about later?

Eleanor and Park are popping up on the lists of many people. I have some younger people on my list, probably for the reason you give.

Here's my TTT
