Top Ten Tuesday: Coming of Age Stories I'd Like to See

Hey, ladies!

It's Top Ten Tuesday by The Broke and The Bookish! This week's topic is ten childhood characters you'd love to visit as adults, or ten characters you'd like to see coming of age stories of.

In no order, here are my picks, thought not a full ten.  Not all would be in childhood (most are actually just set before the book/series started), and not all are the main characters!

Barrons from the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning

I would love to see a novella from Barrons' point of view, before he met Mac. He's such a fascinating character, and I would love to see the circumstances that shaped him. 

Kate from the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews

Speaking of circumstances shaping characters, who wouldn't want to see a younger Kate?

Lily and Lo from the Addicted series by Krista and Becca Ritchie

While it'd be incredibly sad, it'd be so neat to watch the bond between these two form during their childhood. 

Reyes from the Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones

I could totally get on board with a Reyes story set before First Grave on The Right. Damn, that man is fine.

Bones from the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost

Bones will always and forever be my favorite book boyfriend. I want to see him before Cat!

Gallagher from Menagerie by Rachel Vincent 

If there ever was an interesting character, it's Gallagher.


  1. I haven't read any of these, but most of them are on my list. Bookworm fail!

  2. All excellent books and worlds!!

  3. Oooh I agree with all of them except one, and only because I haven't read that one lol!

  4. This is another great Top Ten Tuesday topic! So many of those are on my TBR, but I can definitely say I 100% agree about Gallagher. Loved that character!

  5. You know who I want to get a YA book? Reyes' and Charley's baby!

  6. Kate would be a crazy one. I like that we got so may stories of Lily and Lo growing up, but yeah it would be cool to get a whole story, like right before college.

  7. I really need to read Menagerie! Fun TTT topic.

  8. I just can’t imagin coming of age story featuring Barrons. Lol. I love you list, so many unexpected characters for this theme.

  9. Somehow I haven't read any of these! A bunch are on my TBR though.
