Happy Tuesday everyone and welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and this week's theme is Childhood Characters I'd Love To Revisit As An Adult. The characters I've listed below are some I'd like to revisit in 10 or 20 years to see what kind of adult they've become. Here we go in alphabetical order by author:
Ramona Quimby from the Ramona Quimby series by Beverly Cleary - I would love to see Ramona as a high school student - her spunk, independence, and creativity would make her an exceptional YA heroine.
Artemis Fowl from the Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer - I've only read the first four books in the series, but I would like to see our criminal mastermind as a twenty-something or thirty something. I'm picturing a combination of Ben Whishaw, Colin Morgan, and Asa Butterfield.
Matilda Wormwood from Matilda by Roald Dahl - I'd like to see Matilda as a college student, perhaps something along the lines of Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl with a dash of fantasy.
Wiggins and the Baker Street Irregulars from Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle - How interesting would it be to see what these guys grow up to be?
Coraline from Coraline by Neil Gaiman - Maybe I just want a sequel...
Star Mackie from Hope is a Ferris Wheel by Robin Herrara - Again, I think I just want to touch base with Star about five or six years down the road.
Greg Heffley and Rowley Jefferson from The Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney - I'd like to see what kind of misadventures these two get up to in high school or college.
Scout and Jem Finch from To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee - Obviously, I'm not counting Go Set A Watchman.
Ella from Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine - I'd like to see the future of the kingdom after their happily ever after.
Mae Mobley from The Help by Kathryn Stockett - I want to see how Mae Mobley turned out as an adult, say in the present day.
So, what do you think of my list this week? Do you want revisit any of these characters? Who do you want to see again? As always, thanks for visiting my blog and I try to respond to all comments!
