I'd dream of sequels, but they'd probably be awful. Except for Cursed Child which I'm super scared/excited for. And what's with all these new covers!?
c.j.'s selections ten ten ten
Chronicles of Narnia - C.S. Lewis
In my version, she ends up going back to Narnia and everybody lives happily ever after. So I do want to catch up with her and the Pevensies, but only if it goes the way I want because SERIOUSLY WHY.
Chronicles of Chrestomanci - Diana Wynne Jones
We get to see Christopher as both a kid and later as the Chrestomanci, but Cat is an eternal kid. I'm dying to see how badass and adorably sheepish Cat is as Chrestomanci with all that power and fake-sister. Romance? Or is that creepy?
Alice in Wonderland - Lewis Carroll
Come on, wouldn't it be awesome to see what Alice is like in her 20s, kicking ass and taking names and ruling Wonderland as high queen or something? ...Just gonna go write a book now. Don't mind me.
Artemis Fowl - Eoin Colfer
I was in love with Artemis as a tween because I have a soft spot for brilliant, snarky anti-heroes. Can you imagine him as an adult, going all sexy super villain but secretly hero business giant on the world!? And come on, wasn't there a thing with Holly? There were so many hints.
|five||Lyra and Will |
His Dark Materials - Phillip Pullman
After that ending, Pullman owes us some answers about the later lives of our heroes. How did they rebuild their worlds? Surely Lyra didn't just stop being a badass after the whole dust incident cleared. And maybe there's a way between worlds after all?
Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky
I realize half the charm of this book is its wayward teenage-ness, but I would totally love to see college-age Charlie in a darker, Bret Easton Ellis sort of finding himself narrative. Or, ya know, him just being happy.
Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock - Matthew Quick
Speaking of wayward youth, I want an update on Leonard. I bet there are dark times ahead for him, but the kind that he can overcome valiantly and a little clumsily in a darkly comedic sort of way. (Okay, I cheated a little. I read this recently. I just didn't read stuff like Little House, okay!?)
|eight||Will and the Drews |
The Dark is Rising Sequence - Susan Cooper
This is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITES and not enough people have experienced its brilliance! It's Harry Potter and Narnia meets King Arthur. And I ache to know what happened to my beloved children of the light after the prophecy came to be and the dark retreated. They haunt me.
|nine||Pony Boy |
The Outsiders - S.E. Hinton
Seriously, does this kid grow up okay? Does he get over all the horror and the gang craziness? DOES HE STAY GOLDEN!?
A Series of Unfortunate Events - Lemony Snicket
I mean, seriously, did these kids get a break? Did Violet marry Duncan? Did Sunny become a master chef? Did Klaus invent the world's next iPad and make genius babies with Isadora? I MUST KNOW THESE THINGS.
