Top Ten Tuesday: Relationships I Would Like to Check Back In On

A weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

If you are a regular reader here you know that I am not a big fan of romance and in most books I wish there was no romance at all. But every once in awhile there will be a relationship that I am super curious about that I will want to check back in about. Sometimes it's to verify that they're still together and sometimes it's to make sure they broke up.

1.) Lara Jean and Peter K in To All the Boys I've Loved Before series by Jenny Han
Spoilers for Always and Forever, Lara Jean: I am so curious what these two are up now. Did they make it work long distance and stay together while they are away at college? I sure hope so. If these crazy kids can't make it work, who can?

2.) Kaz and Inej in the Six of Crows series by Leigh Bardugo
This relationship was so painful in how long it took to develop. Never in my life have I been so excited about two characters holding hands. But I need to check in to make sure they did more. I need that! We all do.

3.) Ronan and Adam in The Raven Cycle by Maggie Steifvater
I think we will get just this in the new Ronan series Maggie is working on. Unless it's a prequel which I am also okay with. I just feel like this ship had such a slow payoff I want to make sure they are still together and still happy.

4.) Kel and Lila in the Shades of Magic series by V.E. Schwab
And yet another book with a long payoff. I guess I really like a slowburm. Anyway, I would like to check back in to see what these two are up to. Are they being pirates together? Traveling through dimensions? Just chilling in Red London? I'm hoping all of the above.

5.) Simon and Blue in Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
Another good slowburn. I really love these two and I want to make sure they are still together. Young/first love is tricky that way. But I am very hopeful that we will get some updates in Leah on the Offbeat.

6.) Abigail and Charlie in the Jackaby series by William Ritter
I don't want to give too much away because that would spoil some of the best moments from The Dire King, which was great. But I will say, there are two very specific reasons why I want to check in on this ship. I'd love a spinoff series.

7.) Kestrel and Arin the Winner’s trilogy by Marie Rutkowski
This relationship is one I am kind of surprised I shipped but they had been through so much. But I want to make sure they are still together because, as I said, they have been through so much.

8.) Chubs and Vida in The Darkest Minds trilogy by Alexandra Bracken
Now don't get me wrong, I ship these two hardcore but a part of me thinks that they aren't really in it for the long haul. I want them to stay together but I feel like they are just too different and end up

9.) David and Megan in The Reckoners series by Brandon Sanderson
This is another one like the previous one. I love these two and I ship them real bad but I feel like they are just so different. A part of me thinks that over time they would definitely break up. Sorry, David.

10.) Sophronia and Soap in the Finishing School series by Gail Carriger
So here's the thing about these two, I wasn't sure I shipped it until something happened that I was really sad about. But this series has expanded and has spinoffs but there has not been any references to Sophronia and Soap and I wish there was.

Honorable mention from some I don't ship:

How to Hang a Witch by Adrianna Mather
Is this girl still making out with ghosts? I sure hope not. There was a perfectly good guy next door.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
I didn't finish this series but I heard Anna and Etienne got engaged and like, what?

There you have it. All the ships I wish I could check back in on. What ships do you want to follow up with? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!

  6. I'm with you on the girl making out with the ghost. Just no. Also, I shipped Sophronia and Soap in the first book, but nothing happened. I guess more does happen between them?!?!?! I'll have to read. I skipped your Lara Jean one because I still need to read to the end of that series, but I loved Peter in the first book.

    1. Ohhh and Anna and St Clair getting engaged was a NO for me.

  7. First of all, I am in love with this topic. I am well know for wanting epilogues, and a especially, jump ahead epilogues, because I need to check in. Of all of these, I am the most curious of LJ and Peter K. It was all so up in the air, and this was a couple I shipped really hard since book 1. I need to know they made it. This is why I think Han should do a Kitty spin-off, but she should age Kitty up to high school. Then, LJ would be old enough for us to get a meaningful update on her life. I'm just saying...
