Ten Childhood Characters You'd Love To Revisit As Adults

There are so many characters I love from my childhood!  Heads up, some of these pictures are from movie adaptions of the books or graphic novel adaptions and are so not what I originally pictured them as.

Also keep in mind, I hated reading until I was about 12 years old!  So most of these are middle grade and young adult level.

1.  Severus Snape (Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling) - Who wouldn't want to revisit him after reading the books growing up?  I want to more recently since the new "book" is coming out and it's been a few years since I last re-read the series.  The picture is an original sketch of him by J.K. Rowling.

2.  Artemis Fowl (Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer) - I never got to finish the series as a kid, but I always wanted to go an adventure with Artemis and Captain Holly Short.  The picture is one from the graphic novel and not at all how I pictured him.

3.  Max (Maximum Ride by James Patterson) - Loved her as the fearless leader in the first three books!  And I consider those to be the core books.

4.  Kira (Gatherin Blue by Lois Lowry) - I remember feeling a great love towards the gentle soul that was Kira, I would just generally love to feel the peace of her again.

5.  Laura (Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder) - She was so free!  Exploring the great unknown world with her sisters at her side and her parents always there.  Nostalgia at it's finest for me right here.

6.  David & Crew (Everworld series by Katherine Applegate) - If I can ever get my hands on this rare and old series again I will devour it in a week.  This is how much I loved it.

7.  Jack & Annie (Magic Tree House by Mary Pope Osborn) - Do I really need to embellish on this one?  I thought not.

8.  Nancy Drew (Nancy Drew by Caroline Keene) - I've only read these as an adult, but I would have like to re-read her in the future when I'm even more of an adult.

9.  Alyssa (The Silent Storm by Sherry Garland) - I re-read this book every year.  Alyssa is such a strong girl who finally finds herself after being lost in a real and emotional storm.  She is empowering.

10.  Corduroy (Corduroy by Don Freeman) - Favorite bear as a little kid.
