Top Ten Tuesday #28: Childhood Characters

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Today’s theme is all about our five star reviews. Now, I like to think that I have a fairly decent amount of five star reviews versus how many books I read a day. By that I mean, I don’t believe I hand them out like crazy. If anything I tend to do more two to four star reviews. I’ve decided only to feature the five star reviews I’ve done so far for this year. Below you’ll find snippets of my reviews. Feel free to look at them if you wish. But hopefully you’ll find a new book to add to your TBR!


1 – 5 The Girls from the Baby-sitters Club

I was obsessed with The Baby-sitters Club when I was a little kid. I first discovered the series when I was in kindergarten and these girls were how I grew up. I lived vicariously through them and even strived to create my own club when I was old enough. Of course that didn’t happen. But I loved the series so much I’ve been rereading it for the past year. I would love to see what became of Stacey, Mary Anne, Dawn, Claudia and Kristy (in that order.) Did Kristy become some star softball player who almost made it to the Olympics? Did Claudia ever finally get her act together in school? What kind of careers did they have? Are they married? Do they have kids?

6. Jesse from Bridge to Terabithia

This was one of my favorite books as a child and I was always curious as to how life turned out for Jesse and his little sister. Perhaps Jesse went on to write a great American novel about his time in Terabithia and how Leslie is still the ruler of it? Or maybe he turned to his art and created works based on the mythical land they ruled over?

7 – 9 Peter, Susan and Ducan from My Teacher is an Alien series

In book four of this series, the kids have to convince the interplanetary council to not destroy the Earth, but to give them the opportunity to develop into a better planet. After agreeing to send alien teachers to help teach the new generation, the series ends. I would love to find out what has happened to them in the past 20+ years. Perhaps it’s about time to re-evaluate Earth and the trio will be summoned before the council once more.

10 – 12 Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire from A Series of Unfortunate Events

Though the children finally escaped Count Olaf, who else wondered what happened to these three kids who can never seem to find happiness? I think it would be interesting to see if they finally found their way. Perhaps they found their happiness and the next generation of Baudelaires find themselves dealing with their own series of unfortunate events.

13. Lemony Snicket

Oh come on! He was a mystery back when A Series of Unfortunate Events was first being published and I admit, I’m still curious to know more about him. After all, he was kind of a character himself.

I’m afraid that’s all I have for today. Can’t wait to see what you all have listed today!

About Kristine

As an aspiring author, avid bookworm, fitness fanatic and dedicated mother, there just aren't enough hours in the day. I write or post about things I'm passionate about and spend my time trying to make the most of every day. Life may be a tough journey, but I have my ruby red slippers and am content on skipping along this yellow brick road until the end of the line.

  1. Never read the Babysitter’s Club! I might see if Miss L likes them when she’s a tad bit older, but I have a feeling she’s steering in the direction of science fiction. Where are they then? My TTT.

  2. Bridge to Terabithia – wail! My TTT

  3. I never read all the Babysitters books. I only read a few because our library only had a few hodge podge ones from the series, but I remember watching the show for several episodes. What would those girls be like all grown up? It would be interesting to find out! Reunions seem to be “the thing” of Hollywood right now, perfect time to also release a book along the same lines.

    • Oh no! After the mess Francine Pascal did with the Sweet Valley Confidential, I don’t think I could handle them messing up the Baby-sitters Club. 😛
