Hosted by Jamie, Jana and Lauren of BrokeandBookish.com, Top Ten Tuesdays is a weekly book meme that presents top ten lists on Tuesdays that promotes favorite bookish themes.
This week's theme: Ten Childhood Characters You'd Love To Revisit As Adults (i.e. a novella or something to see what they grew up to be) -- you could always just pick YA characters you've read recently you wouldn't mind revisiting in 10 years or so. Or you could pick 10 characters and guess what you think they'd be doing in 10 years or 20 years. OR you could go the other way and wish for coming of age stories for adult characters you love.
1. The girls from Baby-Sitters Club
These books (and the 'Little Sister' spinoffs) were all I read as a kid, and I'd love to see what Kristy, Claudia, Mary-Anne, Stacey, Jessi and Mallory are up to as adults. I'm surprised I still remember all their names!! :)
2. Karen from Baby-Sitters Little Sister
Like I said before, these books were all I read growing up. I'd love to see what Karen (Kristy's little sister) would be up to, still causing mischief around the house, I'm sure.
3. Nancy Drew
I don't really remember all of the books, but my niece and I loved reading these books as a kid. And then when the movie starring Emma Roberts (pictured above) came out, I was so excited. I used to be such a stan for Emma back then!
4. The Boxcar Children
I didn't read a whole lot of these, but from what I remember, I liked them a lot.
5. Harry, Ron and Hermoine from Harry Potter Series
I don't even have to say how much I loved these books!! I still do! Mind you, I didn't read these until high school, but it still managed to make a huge part of my school life. Thanks to my best friend Kim for introducing me to one of the best series to ever encounter my reading life.
This books was so adorable, and I had a lot of fun reading the book, and the movie was so cute, as well. I'd love to be able to go back in time and see what Madeline was up to as an adult.
7. Wilbur and Charlotte from Charlotte's Web
I'd love to see how Wilbur and Fern are as adults, and Charlotte's three little baby spiders.
8. The Bernstein Bears
I'd love to see how the baby bears are doing as adults, plus Mama and Papa Bear.
9. Nick Allen from Frindle
I'd love to see what Nick and his friends have created as adults, especially since Nick's "frindle" word caused so much controversy in the story!
10. Winnie the Pooh
I don't think Pooh ever ages, so it wouldn't be hard to go back and see what he'd be up to, with Piglet, Eeyore, Owl, Rabbit, Tigger, and more in the 100 Acre Wood!!
