  • Jess from Bridge to Terabithia - I'd love to check in on a grown up Jess. Who'd he fall in love with? Does he still think of Leslie? Does he still visit Terabithia? 
  • Toni from The Day After Forever - Are Toni and Eddie still close? Did Eddie and Courtney last? 
  • All of the Babysitter's from The Babysitter's Club - What are they doing? Do they have their own children?
  • Daelyn from By The Time You Read This, I'll Be Dead - Did she or didn't she?!?!
  • Hazel's parents from The Fault In Our Stars - One of the best moments in the book for me was Hazel finding out about her Mum's plans to become a social worker. I'd like to check in on her Mum and Dad after her passing.

  • Mary and James from The Agency series - I have so much love for these two, and was beyond happy that they were getting married! I'd love to check in on them 10 or so years down the track. Do they have children? Are the still solving mysteries?
  • Landon from A Walk To Remember - This was my first Nicholas Sparks book that I read way back in high school. I remember it's told from an older Landon's point of view, but I don't think it mentioned whether he remarried or had children? Maybe it did. Still, I'd like to read a little more about his life after Jamie.
  • Cas from the Anna series - Did he meet someone as awesome as Anna and fall in love? Is he still hunting? I'd love to check in on Thomas and Carmel too.
  • Draco from the Harry Potter series - I know, I know. We got the 19 years later bit so I know Draco married and has a child. But I want more. Is he still an arrogant twerp? I'm sure he is. But what is he doing? What's his wife and child like? Is he just an arrogant twerp or is there some darkness lurking? What are Lucius and Narcissa up to? Tell me all!
  • Anna, Lola & Isla from Stephanie Perkins's awesome series - We know that Anna and Etienne are engaged - awww! - so I'd like to go to the wedding, please and thanks. Do Lola and Cricket, & Isla and Josh last? Please give me all their weddings! Ooooh, do they have children?
Oh, to actually be able to check in on these characters! If you could visit characters 10, 15, 20 years into their fictional future, who would you choose? Share your own Top Ten lists with me please!

  1. Ahhh!!!! The Babysitter's Club girls! It would be so cool if Ann M. Martin would write a special 'reunion' book! Happy reading! :)

  2. I completely agree about Anna, Lola, and Isla!!!! I don't think I could bear checking in with Hazel Grace though. I'd just cry!

    1. I don't doubt I would too. But I wonder about her parents so they had to make the list. :-) Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I completely forgot about Cas from Anna in my list... my mind just went totally blank this week. I'd love to find out more about Draco too though any Harry Potter character would do.

    1. Yeah, I had a few that I thought of immediately but had to really think about the others. I agree, I'd take more about any and all Harry Potter characters any day! Thanks, Lauren.

  6. Great list. I forgot about Jess. I’d love to know what he’s like as an adult.

    1. Thanks, AJ. Jess was one of the first I thought of, mostly because I watched the movie a few weeks ago. It'd be so great if we could actually check in with characters!

  7. I couldn't resist - I added the whole cast of HP. :) I like that you added Hazel's parents.

    Check out my TTT.

    1. I don't blame you! I'd love more on every HP character, that's for sure. Yeah, I had to include Hazel's parents. They were awesome and I really felt for them. :-) Thanks, Lauren.

  8. I love to hate those endings that just leave you hanging, and I've never read By the Time You Read this I'll be Dead. Is it any good?

    1. It's been a few years since I read it now, but I did really like it. It's one that sticks with you. Those open endings are killer, but sometimes they really work. Still, I can't help but wonder. Thanks for stopping by!
