Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Characters I Would Like to Catch Up with Over Tea


This topic is a little difficult for me because I think there is a point where you can have TOO MUCH information about the characters after the ending of the book (J.K. Rowling, I'm looking at you!) If an epilogue describes every detail of the characters entire life after the book ends, I usually get annoyed. That's too much information! I like to be able to imagine my own epilogues and futures for characters, and I like a bit of mystery. That being said, there are some characters I wouldn't mind sitting down with for a cup of tea and a brief chat  about what they have been up to. 


1. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
I would love to hear how my favorite literary bffs are handling retirement.

2. Noah from I'll Give You the Sun-- Review
Oh man! I loved reading from Noah's perspective, and I would keel over from excitement at the chance to read more from his p.o.v. But, I would love to catch up with him and see all of the beautiful art he has made.
3. Tessa Gray from The Infernal Devices 
I'm sure she would have tons of awesome stories because of you know, spoiler reasons.



4. Esther Greenwood from The Bell Jar
I would love to see what happens to Esther after the end of this novel! The end is a little ambiguous, so I would love to see how things turn out for Esther. (I'm thinking things work out for the better.)

5. Lizzie Bennet and Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice
Doesn't everyone want to meet the Darcy children?

6. Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany's 
Holly Golightly is a woman who will have a million adventures in her life and I would love to hear about them. She is such an interesting character.



7. Eleanor and Park from Eleanor and Park
I love these two! They are so sweet and genuine. I would love to hear about how Eleanor's life is going and how sweet Park still is to her.

8. Tom and Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby 
I would love to see if these two are happy together and if things have changed! I'm guessing the answer to both of those questions is a big ol' nope!

9. Holden Caulfield from The Catcher in the Rye
Does Holden get over his angst? Does he become a phony adult himself? 



10. Olivia Mead From The Cure for Dreaming
I know Olivia is going to do cool things with her life (well, you know, she would if she was a real person) and I would love to hear about all of the awesome girl-power adventures she has had.

Leave me a link to your post, I would love to come check it out!

  9. Eleanor and Park made my list. :) I was not a huge fan of Catcher in the Rye, but it would still be nice to check in with him. I would like to know if he ever grew out of his arrogance and pretentiousness.

  10. Great list, Mallory! Sherlock and Watson are a brilliant choice - I'd love to see these two as old(er) men, I have a feeling Sherlock doesn't quite understand what retirement means. ;)

  12. I added a Jane Austen book to my list as well. Me, I'd like to talk with Elinor Dashwood from Sense and Sensibility. And, I would like to know what happened to Harry Potter and company. Yes, I know, the epilogue, but I'd like to know more. ;-)
