waiting on wednesday - harry potter and the cursed child

Hi, friends! I'm back with another Waiting on Wednesday, brought to us by the ever-so-lovely Jill at Breaking the Spine. My pick this week is totally the least original choice in all the land, but since I wasn't around when it was first announced I am required by law to geek out about it now.

top ten childhood characters i'd like to visit as adults

Hello, friends! Today's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is all about nostalgia (for me, at least). We're going to be talking about characters I loved when I was younger and really want to know what they're up to now. Not even necessarily books I read when I was a kid; we're gonna go into my teen years, too. Let's get started! 

1. Everyone in the Harry Potter series, duh. Oh hey, Cursed Child! Oh hey, dreams coming true! Didn't see you there! 

2. Suze from The Mediator series. Same deal as above (although I really have no idea why I haven't picked up Remembrance yet). Soon, my minions. 

3. Madison Finn from The Files of Madison Finn. I remember really loving these books when I was a preteen, and I really do credit my love of pugs to them. And my short obsession with acquiring an orange laptop (it never happened). I feel like she'd probably work for Buzzfeed, to be honest. 

4. Halley and Scarlett from Someone Like You. I hope they're still best friends. I hope Scarlett's baby is doing well. I just really loved their friendship dynamic and now I wanna reread it. 

5. Audrey from Audrey, Wait! I see her being part of a "Someone Wrote A Song About Me" support group. Delilah, Roxanne, and Becky will also be there. 

6. The whole gang from the Twilight series. I've been known to talk some smack about the series, I know. But I do think it would be fun to check in on the Cullens and see how their lives are going. That's what Stephenie Meyer should have done instead of the stupid gender reversal. Yes, I'm bitter. No, I'm not sorry. 

7. Eleanor and Park from, well, Eleanor & Park. I did not get any closure from that book. I really need to know how it ends up for those two, okay? Please tell me they live happily ever after. 

8. Jane and Rochester from Jane Eyre. It would be cool to see how their kid turns out, y'know? Also, does Rochester stop being kind of an asshole? And what about Adele?! How's she doing? 

9. Clay from Thirteen Reasons Why. I don't know if I'm the only one who feels this way, but that boy must be all kinds of fucked up after what he went through. I would just love to see how he copes and the effects of this traumatic experience on him. 

10. All the kids from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (except for Charlie). Look, I don't really care what happened to him. What matters to me is the other kids. Does Violet ever turn back to a normal colour, or does she just stay blue? Does Augustus start eating salads? Does Mike grow back to his normal size? Does Veruca learn to stop being such a bitch? Most importantly: Does Willy Wonka get sued? He totally should.
