Top 10 Characters I'd Like To Check In With

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme run by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is: Top Ten Characters You'd Like To Check In With. (Meaning, the book or series is over and you so just wish you could peek in on the "life" you imagine they are leading years down the line after the story ends).

If I was left to my own devices, this list would include at least half the characters I’ve ever read about! I tried to keep things in check, but… yep, I went a little overboard with this list. I’ve included 17 characters. But! They’re from 8 different series… so it sort of balances itself out a little.

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

Roar (and Aria and Perry)

I LOVE these three, but Roar has always been my favourite. I’d love to see what happened to him after the last book ended. (If he ever got a spin-off series, I'd be SUPER happy!)

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Katniss Everdeen (and Peeta!)

I’d LOVE to know more about that epilogue in Mockingjay… I NEED to know all the details!

Darkhouse by Karina Halle Experiment in Terror

Perry Palomino and Dex Foray

These two are amongst my all-time favourite characters, and I’d love to see how things developed after the last book. Perry’s little sister, Ada, is meant to be getting her own spin-off series… so I’m really hopeful that Perry and Dex will show up, too! :D

Splintered by A.G. Howard


I don’t need an excuse to want to know more about Morpheus. It’s MORPHEUS! The more Morpheus in my life, the better!

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

Eric and Pam

I know Sookie is the main character… but I barely managed to tolerate her presence for the entire series. In honesty, I don’t give a damn about her! BUT… Eric. Oh how I LOVE Eric! And Pam! I would have loved these two to get a proper send-off worthy of their awesomeness. (And yes, I’ve pretty much dismissed the ‘official’ ending of the series, and substituted my own…)

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

Clara, Tucker and Christian

Now, I’m not going to spoil things, and say which of the two boys ended up being the ‘chosen one’… but I’d LOVE to see how things progressed after the epilogue!

Twilight by Marissa Meyer

Alice and Jasper

(I’m beginning to realise this list has a bit of a couples feel to it… But anyway!) I loved Alice and Jasper when I read the Twilight books, and I’d LOVE to see what happened to them after Breaking Dawn ended.

 Amy and Roger's Epic Detour
by Morgan Matson

Amy and Roger

The ending of this book was so abrupt! I would have LOVED an epilogue that gave a little hint of what came next. We did get a receipt on the last page… so I’m pretty sure things continued on, but I WANT TO KNOW!

What do you think of my list? And which characters would you like to check in with?


  1. How did I even forget about Katniss and Peeta?! I'd like to think they'd have a much more peaceful life :-) Great picks Alma! Hope you're having a great day :-) Here's my TTT @ Emma's Bookery

  2. Great list. I also really want more Katniss and Peeta.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  3. Good list! I'm curious about Katniss and Peeta...I hope they had some happiness! I always want more Pam...and I want to hear what happened to Bubba...

  4. I have Amy and Roger on my list as well! The ending was quick and I really wish we got to see more of them being together together :D

  5. Great list here. I agree with Roar and Perry and would love to know how Jake and the Wolves are doing from Twilight.

  6. OOoh great picks! Totally would love to check in on Clara and Tucker! And Roar! And Aria and Perry! And of course the Unsplintered gang! At least we'll get Untamed next year! And ooh the Southern Vampire Mystery books! Nice pick! I really enjoyed that series in the beginning, then at some point it totally lost all the mystery value they once stood for. I was okay with the ending, though I still felt sidelined by her "choice" in boyfriend. I mean I knew they were friends, but then all of a sudden she's looking at him and thinks I LOVE HIM!

    Really?! Since when?! Seriously?

    But I did enjoy the little ditty she wrote that told you, quite flat out in black and white with what happened to everyone else. There were quite a few I was wondering about that never got touched on. But then some people I was like, who the hell are they? After Dead...or something like that I think it was called.

    Nice picks though! ;)

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  7. I've only read THG and Splintered (Morpheus <3) and oh I would totally love to check up on Katniss and Peeta. Even though I know it will be slightly sad :P

  8. I agree with Unearthly. It would be cool to see some more of Clara and the boys.
    More detail about the Mockingjay epilogue would be great as well.
    Thanks for sharing!

  9. I love that you picked Amy and Roger. I totally forgot to include them on my list! I would love to check in with them! Roar is also on my list. He is my favorite character from the series too. I LOVE him! <3
    I also would like to check in on Katniss. :D
    Great list!
