Top Ten Characters I’d Like To Check In With

Ya’ll, I’m getting some serious feels writing this post. WHY do these books have to be over???

Post prompt from The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Characters I’d Like To Check In With

top ten characters i wish i could check in with harry potter hermione granger ron weasley

1-3. Harry, Hermione and Ron– This is way obvious and like a necessity. Those little check-in articles J.K. Rowling has written are NOT cutting it!

4. Alina– from the Grisha trilogy. I just want to see how she’s handling the fallout after…everything. GAH!

5. Jonas– from The Giver. I can handle ambiguous endings better than when I was in middle school, but I really do want to know what happens to him. SO MANY QUESTIONS.

6. Bitterblue– from the Graceling books. Bitterblue was such an intense read, you guys. I loved the world Kristin Cashore created and would read like 5 more books set there. From my blog to Cashore’s ears…

7. Cassel Sharpe– from the Curse Worker series. Cassel Sharpe is for sure up to some shenanigans, and I’d love to get the deets on what exactly.

8. Jacob Black– from the Twilight Saga. Judge me all you want, but Jacob totally got the bad end of the deal in book 4. Has Renesmee grown up? Can he finally stop being in love with a toddler?

9. Four– from the Divergent books. !!!!!! I can’t even type this out. I’m still not over it.

10. Eleanor-from Eleanor and Park. UM another ambiguous ending I tried to pretend I was satisfied with. Don’t get me wrong, I freaking love this book, but like, throw us a bone, Rainbow Rowell!

Which characters do you wish you could “see” one more time??

About Lisa Parkin

I'm a hardcore lover of young adult fiction and have been reviewing books since 2011. Other interests include Downton Abbey, heat lightning storms, Harry Potter land and (begrudingly) one orange tabby.

    Totally agree about Bitterblue – so hoping for more in that series!!! And Four – of course. As far as Twilight – I always wonder about Leah Clearwater – she didn’t die in the book right?? I can’t remember – but always felt like she got the shaft because Sam imprinted on that other chick… And nostalgically, always wanted to just check in on the Shire to see how everyone is.

  • LOL totally agree about Eleanor and Park! I pretended to be satisfied/happy with the ending that’s kind of appropriate given their ages/the situation, but SERIOUSLY it’s been like 30 years since the book ended (since it took place in the 80’s) – now I need some closure!

  • Definitely Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Ginny. I would also love to check in with Priscilla the Great, and the Percy Jackson gang.

  • Great list. Eleanor and Park made mine too. And yes, I would love to know what happened with Jacob! Also, did you ever read the two sequels to The Giver? They answer all questions. 🙂

  • Oh, that kid from The Giver! Good pick. I barely remember how the book even ends, now I’m curious….
