Top Ten Tuesday was originally started by The Broke And The Bookish, where a topic is given every Tuesday and the blogger then produces a top ten list of books to fit the weekly subject. The topic this week is ‘Top Ten Characters You Would Like To Check In With‘ so here it is:
WARNING: THERE MAY BE SPOILERS IN SOME, SO IF YOU SEE A BOOK YOU DO NOT WANT TO GET RUINED FOR YOU, DON’T
1. Ballet Shoes- Noel Streatfeild
Reason: She always seemed to be the ‘odd one out’ in the family, not into the arts, so I am curious to know what she ended up doing, whether she got into the car and airplane industry or not.
2. Allegiant- Veronica Roth
Reason: I just need to know if he’s doing OK after Tris’ death and everything that happened in the city. I kind of just want to give him a big hug, mainly to comfort him, but who wouldn’t want to cuddle with Four!
3. The Rabbit Back Literature Society- Jääskeläinen, Pasi Ilmari
Character: Ella and Marty
Reason: I want to know whether their relationship is still standing and how they are getting on with their careers as writers. What happened to the Literature Society?
4. Paper Towns- John Green
Character: Margo Roth Spiegelman
Reason: Did she go home? Did Q go back to visit her in the distant future? What adventures did she go on? I want to know a lot more about Margo than the typical reader of this book should!
and while we are on subject of John Green…
5. The Fault In Our Stars- John Green
Character: Hazel Grace Lancaster
Reason: Does this really need an answer? I need to know how she is, how is her cancer? How is she holding up after Augustus’ death? Another character I just want to give a big hug to and make sure everything is good.
6. Before I Go To Sleep- S.J Watson
Reason: Christine went through so much throughout the book,especially towards the end, I just want to know how she is getting on with her amnesia and whether she recovered from the emotional turmoil she experienced in the novel.
7. The Hunger Games- Suzanne Collins
Character: Katniss and Peeta
Reason: I NEED TO WATCH THEM AS THEY FALL IN LOVE A BIT MORE EACH DAY AND WATCH THEM GROW OLD TOGETHER AND GO TO THEIR WEDDING UGH WHY HUNGER GAMES RUINED ME!
8. Matilda- Roald Dahl
Character: Matilda and Miss Honey
Reason: I want to know about all of the adventures they went on, whether Matilda had to use her powers again, how she got on in college, what she does for a career. I want to read Matilda’s autobiography basically, can someone write this for me?
9. The Shock of the Fall- Nathan Filer
Reason: Just to see if he’s doing ok, making sure he is keeping well and that Simon is still in his thoughts. Hope his schizophrenia is being properly treated at the new place!
10. The Very Hungry Caterpillar- Eric Carle
Character: The Caterpillar
Reason: Does he still get hungry a lot? (ok, I couldn’t think of a proper 10th one, so I’m gonna visit an insect instead!)
