Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
After a weekend filled with games it’s time to get back to my books (and some work), so let’s start this week with Top Ten Tuesday, today it’s all about characters.
Top Ten Characters You’d Like To Check In With (meaning, the book or series is 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).
First one is easy, Harry Potter! I do miss that world and would love to see all of the characters again.
Juliette and Warner from Shatter me, the ending left me breathless and just wanting more. What happen to our heroes after we left them? Did they go to war and what was the outcome of it. Is there really any hope for humanity, Juliette and her friends?
Lettie Hempstock and her mother and grandmother from Gaiman’s magical The ocean at the end of the lane. Who or what are the Hempstock? I’d love to know more of these magical characters.
Janus Mikani and Celeste Ritsuko from Apparatus Infernum, don’t know if there actually will be a third book, but book two left us with many questions. Will Mikani and Celeste go back to just being partners or will they embrace their newly discovered love for each other? Can they go back to the department? What are the ramifications of their actions.
Then there is the absolute hilarious world of Alexia Tarabotti in Parasol Protectorate, just can’t get enough of it. Luckily there are two spin of series so we can get more of the world and some of the character from the origninal series (can’t wait to start on Prudence), but it would be fun to read more about Alexia (in) famous father Alessandro Tarabotti and catch up with some of the character that we said goodbye in Timeless.
There are far too many series that I need to complete, but when I do there probably will be some that are harder to say goodbye to then others.
Like our friends from the The raven cycle and the beatuiful and magical world of Maggie Stiefvater. Or Kira and Sam (if they survive) from the post-apoclyptic America in Partials Sequence. Lily, Calder and the merpeople from Lies Beneath and last but not least, the most anticipated book of the year, the last book in Penryn and the end of days series, no matter how it will end I definitely miss Penryn, the toughest girl I’ve ever meet.

I’ve seen HP on so many lists this week that it’s clear we’re ALL missing the wizarding world. I wish J.K. Rowling would go ahead and write a spin-off series (or two, or three, or ten …) already!
Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!
And a happy TTT to you to, on a Wednesday 🙂
That would be so great, to have lots and lots of spin-off series!
After all those years with a new book around the corner, now it feels a bit empty.
Maybe time for a re-read…
