TTT: Characters I’d Love An Update On

Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I’d Love An Update On

1. Terciel and Elinor
from Terciel and Elinor by Garth Nix
I just finished reading this book today and I still want to know what happens to them going forward. 

2. Kitty Fane
from The Painted Veil by W. Somerset Maugham
She made some huge strides and growth in her personality from unlikable to forgivable. Will she become a better person in the Caribbean?

3. Mary and Kitty Bennet
from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
These two sisters need their own stories or else I fear they'll forever be spinsters, the sisters who don't get any attention.

4. Adunni
from The Girl With the Louding Voice by Abi Dare
Adunni never loses sight of her goals. I want to know what her life is like when she attains them.

5. Anne (Agnes) Hathaway
from Hamnet by Maggie O'Farrell
I adore this book about the life of Shakespeare's wife. I didn't want the book to end. I want to learn more about this woman.

6. Princess Buttercup and Westley
from The Princess Bride by William Goldman
We all know that they have to live happily ever after, but where and how?

7. Lyra Silvertongue and her daemon Pantalaimon
from The Book of Dust series by Philip Pullman
I just want Pullman to hurry up and publish the third book in the series so I can find out what happens to these beloved characters. 

8. Ronan Lynch
from The Dreamer Trilogy by Maggie Stiefvater
I confess that I haven't read the second book yet but I still want to know how everything wraps up for Ronan and his brothers.

9. Virgil Wander
from Virgil Wander by Leif Enger
I love this character. I want to be his friend. I'd like an update on his life.

10. Eleanor Oliphant
from Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeywell
Just need to check in and see if she is still doing fine.




  1. The Bennet sisters seem like amazing candidates for an update!

  2. Ronan got a spin-off series I think. I haven't read it yet but I know he's featured in there at least. :)

    1. I read the first book in the Dreamer series, the spin-off Ronan series by the author or The Raven Boys. I know there is a second book in the series already published, which I haven't read. then I'll have to wait again for the third. Sigh.

  3. I do hope there will be an update on Eleanor Oliphant.

  4. I haven’t read Eleanor Oliphant yet, but I am already onboard for a sequel!

    Happy TTT!

  5. Updates on Mary and Kitty Bennet and Princess Buttercup and Westley? Yes, please! Will have to check out some of the others. Thaks for the list! My post: https://pagesandpaws.com/2021/11/23/11-characters-wed-love-to-get-updates-on/

  6. An emphatic YES on 4,7,9 and 10! I hope Pullman stays alive long enough to finish the series.

    1. All the sudden I realized I couldn't remember how things went at the end of Virgil Wander. He's okay, right?

  7. I would LOVE to know how Eleanor Oliphant is doing!

  8. I would be interested in knowing what happened to Mary and Kitty as well. Maybe Jane Austen can do us a solid from beyond the grave...

    Happy TTT!

  9. Great list! I loved Ronan - that whole series was so good.

  10. Interesting list, I think it would be neat to see an update from The Princess Bride too. Happy Tuesday! https://cindysbookcorner.blogspot.com/2021/11/top-ten-tuesday-thanksgiving-edition.html

  11. I want to know the same things about Adunni!

    Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!

  12. I would actually want an update on Lydia from Pride and Prejudice. I don't her actions as a fifteen year old should condemn her to a life of unhappiness.
