Top Ten Tuesday (55) : Top Ten Characters I’d Love To Revisit As Adults

top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Brokeandbookish. This week’s theme is Top Ten Characters I’d love to revisit as an Adult. I’m guessing this means, characters we want to see once they are all grown up? I’m going to take it like that anyway, because I like it better, and, why not? So, let’s head into this. No spoilers, and if you want to discover the wonderful books, click on the title for a link to Goodreads!

1 • Everything, Everything, Nicola Yoon

I recently read this book, and I know it’s not been everyone’s favorite, basically because of the plot twist, but personally, I loved it. So much. And to be honest, I’d love to fast-forward a bit and see how Maddie’s doing now.

2 • Pretending to be Erica, Michelle Painchaud

If you’re into thriller/mystery books and you haven’t read that one yet, you are MAKING A MISTAKE. It’s a great book, with a huge focus on character development, and I loved it. Erica/Violet was such an interesting character, I would love to see what she’s up to now.


3 •  I’ll Give You The Sun, Jandy Nelson

Can’t go without quoting that one, and I’m not even sorry. It was just too good, and let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to know what those perfect people are up to now? .

4 • The Spectacular Now, Tim Tharp

That book was, well, the ending was very realistic, but leaving me kind of frustrated. What’s Sutter doing right now, is he okay? I NEED to know.

5 • The Mara Dyer series, Michelle Hodkin

Mara Dyer being one crazy rollercoaster of a book, I feel like I NEED to know what happens to her next. And Noah. And just, everything. It can’t just end, it’s the kind of book I want to read forever.

6 • Amy  & Roger’s Epic Detour, Morgan Matson

So, we kind of left Amy & Roger and their epic road trip behind, but with those two, who doesn’t want to know what they’re up to now?

7 • My life next door, Huntley Fitzpatrick

AHH the Garretts. To be honest, I’d fast-forward ten years just to see how’s that crazy huge and fun family doing right now. A little bit for Jase, as well, okay.

8 • More than this, Patrick Ness

If you haven’t read that book, WHAT are you doing? GO read it now. I may not have read Patrick Ness’ most famous works (I will…) but that one. Damn, it’s a slap in the face. And that ending, UGH. MORE, I say.


9 • We were liars, E. Lockhart

I know that book wasn’t for everyone, sure, but… I really want to know what happens next. It was heartbreaking and just, I cried, okay. I did. Do I need more crying? No. But I still want to know.

10 • Uglies, Scott Westerfeld

One of my first dystopian books, and it was SO good. I would love to know what Tally’s up to now. Probably doing some mischievous things.

What are some characters you’d love to see as grown-ups? Adulting sucks, yeah, but I know there are characters we’d love to see try and do that, haha. Let’s chat in comments! 💬

  1. I haven’t read More Than This by Patrick Ness and I love his dystopian series so I clearly need to get going on this. I didn’t read the Spectacular Now, but I saw the movie (I know, I know, not the same) but he would be an interesting character to see as an adult. But I worry that the realism of it might upset me haha

    1. OH you should, then! More than this was such a great story, I loved it so much. I need to read his dystopian series soon, I have it on my TBR since…forever, ahah! I can’t wait 🙂
      I thought the movie was quite good! 🙂 Ahah oh yes, I agree with you, even if I’d love to see what he becomes, I think it would make me sad, as well. Thank you so much for your sweet comment! ❤


  2. HAHAHAHHA! I love how obsessed we are with I’ll Give you the Sun ❤ Just can't shut up about it can we? huh
    And well, most of these books are on my TBR, some of which I luckily already own, so you're not ruining me too much this time !

  3. Wait, the Spectacular Now has a book? How did I not know this? I loved the movie.
    I’ve seen a lot of talk about the Uglies series and I’ve also seen it on a lot of DNF lists. I’m a bit hesitant to start it. What’s your thoughts on the series as a whole?

    1. YES! It was quite good actually, if you liked the movie, I think you should enjoy it! 🙂 Well, to be honest, I absolutely LOVED it. Read it a while ago, but I love the world-building, the story, and even if sometimes the characters annoyed me, I loved the whole message about how society is obsessed with beauty. I loved it 🙂 I hope you’ll decide to read it, I’d love to know your thoughts on that one 🙂

      1. I need to hunt that book down.
        Good world building sounds great and the message sounds like something I’ll be into. I’ll give it a try and let you know once I’m done with it :D.

  4. Oh, Everything Everything and Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour just didn’t make my list, but I completely agree about wanting to revisit them! Also, I have not yet read My Life Next Door but it seems so much fun and I hope to be able to read it soon 🙂

  5. Great choices Marie 😀 . Good thing Michelle Hodkin is writing The Shaw Confessions and we’ll have Mara and Noah back in our lifes for three more books and we’ll know what’s up with them 😀

  6. I completely agree with you I would LOVE to see a sequel for Jude and Noah. I feel there is still so much we could see of them, Noah starting his art again, Jude actually finishing her carving, the two of them just healing a little more. Honestly I just want more Jandy Nelson 😀
    And yes after the ending to We Were Liars I feel there should be a sequel in the works, it can’t really end like that can it?! What happens to Cadence next after she knows the truth, I just feel like there is so much that can still be explored, although I dunno maybe that’s why I loved this book so much, because of the open ending, it was full of possibilities for Cadence in a way.
    Great picks for this week! 😀

      1. Well, we can also probably guess based on the other Jandy Nelson books what some of the themes are going to be. I reckon there’ll be a strong sibling relationship (and I really hope there is because I love the way Jandy Nelson writes family relationships!)

        Liked by 1 person

      2. Exactly, and this makes me a bit mad, because I think that in YA, especially contemporary, those relationships are so, so important, parental figures and siblings are taking such a huge part of our lives, especially as a teenager, and it’s too bad they aren’t featured more. I’m glad Jandy Nelson does that with perfection!

      3. Oh exactly, it seems weird when you have books about teenagers and their family just seems to be shunted off to one side because, for most people in real life, that isn’t at all accurate. There needs to be more books like Jandy Nelson’s where family relationships play as big a part as the romantic ones.

  7. AHHH, seeing I’ll Give You the Sun in the future would be so very very great 🙂 My love for that book shows no limits and I really just want more 😛 Although it wasn’t much, I was glad to see a little of Amy and Roger in Second Chance Summer (even if it was only one sentence XD ) ARGH I HAVE MADE A MISTAKE. I HAVE NOT READ PRETENDING TO BE ERICA but I WILL. The cover makes me want to eat my eyeballs ITS SO LOVELY. I loved the Sea of Tranquility and the openish sort of ending but I wouldn’t mind to revisit that one 🙂 It was so great and its one of my favourites. Also Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe (AND SURPRISE BOOK 2), I’m so excited!

    1. HOW WHAT? Where what sentence, I missed Amy & Roger’s comeback in that book? I read it just a week ago, hahaha I can’t believe I missed that!
      You should read Pretending to be Erica, it was so so great, such a gripping story, I would love to know whether you like it or not!
      Ohhh Aristotle and Dante, yes, SO excited for the second book!!

      1. Aha it really is a tinny tiny sentence but they do appear in the beginning somewhere! It’s before they clog on vacations and I think they’re in an ice cream or cafe?
        OH GOSH IT SOUNDS SO GOOD. I don’t know how long I can control myself eithout buying that book. Will tell you about my feels when I do 😉

  8. Now I’m just imagining little George Garrett all grown up.. OMG maybe he became an astronaut. I’m really interested in how Maddie is doing, I mean the ending for Everything Everything just changed her whole world!

    Everything Everything was an alright book, the plot twist didn’t put the nail in the coffin for me, and I agree it would be interesting to see Maddie a few years from the ending!

  10. Great list! I would definitely want to know all about Sutter, Amy & Roger, the Garretts and the girl from We Were Liars. Those are perfect examples of when the story was done, but you did not have any clue what would happen with all the characters next even though you needed to know.

  11. I recently just finished the Mara Dyer Series and I would give anything just to know what will happen to Noah and Mara! I’m still so hung up with the ending and I just want to know WHAT HAPPENS NEXT???
