TTT: YA Couples I’d Like to Revisit as Adults


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, if you want to know more about it, you can just click on the name! This week we had some room for interpretation of the topic, because it is as follows:

Ten Childhood Characters You’d Love To Revisit As Adults (ie a novella or something to see what they grew up to be) — you could always just pick YA characters you’ve read recently you wouldn’t mind revisiting in 10 years or so. Or you could pick 10 characters and guess what you think they’d be doing in 10 years or 20 years. OR you could go the other way and wish for coming of age stories for adult characters you love.

Now, I chose to stick with YA characters, couples in particular, that I’d like to see as adults, simply because I couldn’t conjure up too many real children characters. Let’s do this!

Anna and Etienne

Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1)I know that throughout the Anna and the French Kiss series we got to see more of Anna and Etienne than we did about any of the other characters, but it still wasn’t enough. I want a short summary of the rest of their lives together – of all the joys and pains that fate brought them and their friends. The others should be mentioned as well of course.

Sam and Jase

My Life Next DoorAren’t Sam and Jase from My Life Next Door the cutest. They had some quarrels (nothing serious, don’t worry) in The Boy Most Likely To, but I would like to think that they can figure out the future together. I think they’ll have a real big family one day.

Daisy and Edmond

How I Live NowDaisy finished the book practically quoting the title, by saying “And that is how I live now.”, but the thing is, I don’t actually know how you live now, Daisy! I just know you are sad and that both, you and Edmond, are a little broken. Could you be fixed? Did you build life for yourselves after the disaster of WWIII? I want to know!

Echo and Noah

Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits, #1)What did I hear about a proposal story that I have no clue as to how to get? (darn it … should have pre-ordered Walk the Edge …) I would love to hear some more about how their paths continued.

Ali and Jace

Tone DeafI am not sure how many of you have read Tone Deaf yet, but Ali and Jace have a special connection that they couldn’t ever have with anyone else. At least I highly doubt it, so they better stayed together for the rest of their lives and led some sort of glorious rockstar life, because that’s what I want to read about.

Emi and Ava

Everything Leads to YouThis is one of the few couples where I am not sure they will stay together forever, but I loved Emi so much. Her job, her personality, she was relatable in all the ways. So, I’d like to think she had a happy life with Ava, both of them becoming hot-shots in Hollywood. I so want to see that … I mean read … I wouldn’t mind a movie either, I guess.

Liesel and Max

The Book ThiefOkay, I am definitely stretching the term “couple” here, aren’t I? But I always thought that they would have made a lovely couple. I don’t care about the age difference, they had something that really bonded them and therefore they belonged together. I know that they stayed friends until the end, so that’s something. I would have loved to see that, too.

Baz and Simon

Carry OnRowell‘s books are never fully concluded and that’s okay … it’s her style of writing, but I would have liked to accompany those guys for a little while longer. So why not a short story collection about their lives? I would have definitely read that.

Cath and Levi

FangirlI had to triple check because I couldn’t believe that the couple mentioned in Landline was Cath and Levi, but they were. I have no idea how people guessed that, it’s a mystery. But instead of just hinting at them, why not give us a whole second book just with their regular life? And maybe Cath becoming a famous author?

Alex and Nadia

City of the BeastsI’ve read the Eagle and Jaguar books such a long time ago and I sure as heck can’t remember everything in detail, EXCEPT that I wanted them together so bad and when they FINALLY go on a date, the series ends. Like how is that fair? So, I need more of their adventures and it will be nice to have them deal with everything actually being all grown up. That was some heavy stuff for children/teens anyway.

  1. Ohh I love your list, so glad you decided to talk about couples! I’d love to see Anna and Etienne’s lives together for sure, but Isla and Josh’s as well! And I’m all for Sam and Jase, they are one of my favorite couples ever ❤
    I've seen Everything Leads to You around, and I've always wondered whether I should read it, or not, but it sounds SO good 🙂

  2. OMG SO EXCITED FOR TONE DEAF!! The blurb just sounds so good. Thank you for reminding me about it! And YES I need so much more Etienne and Anna. They’re just so cute together >.<

  3. I shipped Liesel and Max like crazy, too. And I thought it was interesting that Markus Zusak never confirmed who Liesel married, leaving it open-ended to let us wonder who it might have been… Do you think she married Max, or someone else?

    • YES! Shipped them so hard too. I once read an interview with Markus Zusak where he said something along the lines that you can decide for yourself if she ended up with Max or not. Whatever you choose will be true for you and something else can be true for another person.

  4. I would LOVE to see Sam and Jase too, and I also think they’ll have a big family one day, just because of the Garretts. And in what context were Cath and Levi mentioned in Landline? I haven’t read that book yet. D:

  5. A PROPOSAL story! Why didn’t I know about this. I mean Echo and Noah getting their happy ending is all I want! I would love to revisit Cath and Levi, those two are just all sorts of adorable. Same with Sam and Jase. I can just see those two settling down with a family of their own and seeing George all grown up would have me feeling like a proud parent haha. 😛

      • Damn and I thought of pre-ordering the book as well. Here’s hoping that it gets released online sometime soon. I need my Echo/Noah update haha.


  6. I would see Liesel and Max as more siblings then romantically. I always feel like the odd one when I say that as there’s a huge backing for them as a couple- I just don’t see it hahaha,
    OMG A SHORT STORY COLLECTION FOR SIMON AND BAZ WOULD BE SO GREAT! Rowell should definitely consider that idea!
