Top Ten Tuesday, Cool Characters

Top Ten Books Which Feature Characters Who                      

Paper Towns

 Deserve Their Own Television Show

Margo Roth Spiegelman from Paper Towns is a natural for the attention of being a leading lady. She is powerful and determined which would translate to the television screen as a strong female role. I am thinking a cross of Rory Gilmore and Blair Waldorf–smart, cool, and in charge.
The Help
Minny Jackson from The Help would give Dr. Phil a run for his money. I think she would make an excellent talk show host. Her bluntness is the best thing about her, in my opinion.

The Little Lady Agency (The Little Lady Agency, #1)All of the characters from The Little Lady Agency should have their own show. The adventures that Melissa experiences during the series is a sitcom in the making.

Lisbeth Salander from The Millennium series is tThe Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1)he perfect character for a lead role in an action show. She’s a kick butt now, ask questions later kind of girl. Think Sydney Bristow from Alias or Buffy Summers from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Into the WildAn ideal candidate for a reality TV show would be the character from a nonfiction book like Into the WildChristopher McCandless’ story is one that stuck with me long after reading the book. He could be the host of a nature/adventure show.

  • Peeta from The Hunger Games should have his own show on Food Network.
  • Amy from Gone Girl would be a great new contestant for a Real Housewives of Missouri.
  • Will Grayson, Will Grayson‘s Tiny Cooper may have his own story now in Hold Me Closer but he’d be fabulous in his own television show.
  • Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon would make crime/thriller shows more enjoyable.
  • Hagrid is one character I would love to learn more about from The Harry Potter series. I know I’m not alone.

This Top Ten Tuesday list topic is brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week yields a new topic and a new list. Thanks for stopping in this week to check out my list*.ttt

*I understand some of these books and their stories have already been made into movies which I have enjoyed. Some stories we can’t get enough of which inspired my list.

Top Ten Tuesday, Cool Characters

Top Ten Tuesday, Checking In


This week’s topic from The Broke and the Bookish is about checking in with characters from books/series that have ended. Life is suppose to go on, we read other books but the following characters have left their impression. I still think about them and wonder what they are up to now.

Top Ten Characters You’d Like To Check In With

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7)

  1. Everyone wants more Harry Potter, I am no different. These books were a part of my life for a decade so of course they make the list. I would especially want to check in with life at Hogwarts.The Little Lady Agency and the Prince (The Little Lady Agency, #3)
  2. The characters in The Little Lady Agency are spunky, fun, and realistic. I wish I were friends with them. Melissa is smart and sassy, we would be best friends. I loved this whole series and would love to see how the present is treating Melissa.Sisterhood Everlasting (Sisterhood, #5)
  3. I had no idea there was a fifth book, so after reading this I might take this book off this list. I still want to be a part of the sisterhood. I would want to check in with the whole sisterhood.Succubus Revealed (Georgina Kincaid, #6)
  4. Georgina Kincaid is my favorite Richelle Mead series. It was a quick, enjoyable read and I would love to head back to Georgina land.Pride and Prejudice
  5. Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth, need I say more?

Those would be my must check ins but a few others would be:

  • I have yet to read A Shiver of Light but I want Meredith Gentry’s story to never end. An ex–private detective, now full-time princess, Gentry has a life full of adventure.
  • I am always curious what happens next after Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist ends. I would want to hear what Nick’s ex, Tris, is doing these days.
  • After Last Sacrifice we get tidbits of Rose and Dimitri in the Bloodlines series but I would want a more detailed update on their lives after the dust has settled.
  • Robert Langdon (Inferno) where are you now and what conspiracies are you involved in this time?
  • Lisbeth Salander is making a return in The Girl in the Spider’s Web and I don’t know if I am worried or excited.

Well, that’s all folks for this week’s top ten.

What characters would you want an update on? Which books still have you wondering what happened next?
