Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This Week’s Topic is Ten Characters That I Needed Adult Versions of Yesterday
So here’s my list of all of my favorite characters from childhood, and a few YA heroines, that I would love the opportunity to revisit in adulthood. Also, Sorry I’ve been kinda absent lately, these past few weeks at work have sucked and I’m devoting more attention to working on my commenting game 🙂
Matilda – Was her life with Miss Honey magical? Did she ever see her parents again? Did she go to college? Is she some awesome book publisher living abroad just looking for love Bridget Jones’ style? I need answers!
The Boxcar Children – I really need to know if they are all now still living in the Boxcar with their families.
Flipped – So adorable! I just want to keep using that word because that describes everything in this book. I need their adorableness to continue into post-college life.
The BabySitters Club – MARY ANNE FOREVER
Encyclopedia Brown – I loved him so much a child and I really hope he went on to just be the male Veronica Mars.
The Secret Garden – Plot thought: An adult Mary trying to save her childhood happy place.
Tuck Everlasting – I know there’s an epilogue and la-di-da but I really want more story about what her teenage self got into.
Madeline – Teenage Madeline please, also if it could have the same pretty artwork that would be great.
Someone Like You – I would read about an adult Scarlett’s life any day
Are you there God? It’s Me, Margaret – I would love to read about a mid twenties Margaret trying to sort out life and adulting.
What characters do you wish you could revisit as adults? Do you also get so busy with other things that you neglect all of your blog life for a week straight?
