Top Ten Tuesday-Characters I Would Trade Places With For the Day

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, brought to you by The Broke and The Bookish, is all about swapping places. This is a tricky one because I would never want to be some of my favorite characters. Not even for a day. I’m looking at you Sabba and Katniss! Talk about trouble. Here are my picks:

1. Amy Curry from Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson. While Amy has some baggage she’s dragging around, I would totally appreciate every part of a road trip!

2. Jacky Faber from Bloody Jack by L.A. Meyer. Ok, so being an orphan and part of a street gang kind of stinks. And life is hard for everyone in the early 1800’s. And there are pirates. BUT…her adventures are so amazing! I think I would enjoy a day of singing and dancing on the high seas. Without the pirates.

3. Katla LeBlank from Stork by Wendy Delsol. She certainly finds herself in some tricky situations, but her power is so cool! And she has fashion sense.

4. Gwen Shepard from Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier. Time travel. Need I say more?

5. Frankie Landau-Banks from The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart. I love a good prank!

6. Lucy Hamilton from The Drake Chronicles series. This girl is human, gets to stay human, and have vampire best friends and still be bada**, cool and hilarious all on her own. She rules. And she can eat chocolate.

7. Laura Ingalls Wilder from Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder. She was a real person, does that still count? I say yes! I would love to trade places with her for a day. But only for a day because I do enjoy indoor plumbing and sleeping past sunrise.

8. Cammie Morgan from The Gallagher Girls by Ally Carter.ย  I wish I could go to a top-secret spy school. But I think in the end it would be totally exhausting, so one day would be enough for me!

9. Jessie Sloane from Into the Wild Nerd Yonder by Julie Halpern. Like Julie, I fully embrace my nerdiness (but secretly wish to be cool). This girl has a good thing going and I would be down with a day of D&D and pizza. A little known fact about yours truly: I totally rock at D&D.

10. Elizabeth Rew from The Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman. Elizabeth has The. Best. Library. Job. Ever.

I also would mind trading places with Anna from Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, Mary Lang from The Agency series by Y.S. Lee, and Amy Goodnight from Texas Gothic by Rosemary Clement-Moore. Who do you want to trade places with?

Happy Reading!

  1. I debated putting Jacky on my list, but really I would have a hard time picking when I’d actually want to live her adventures… I did pick Cammie too, though, cause I seriously would love to be a spy for a day.

  2. Ruth Donnelly

    Frankie is on my list, too. I wish I’d thought of Elizabeth from Grimm Legacy–it’s one of my favorite books!

  3. Gwen is a great choice! She’s so funny! And time traveling would be amazing for a day!

    My TTT

  4. I’ve always wanted to be Laura! ๐Ÿ™‚
    So many of these are on my TBR shelves…Amy and Roger’s Epic Adventure is on the pile of summer must reads from my oldest daughter ๐Ÿ™‚ Need to get on that pile quick, don’t I ?

  5. I need to read Ruby Red! I like time travel! Great list!

  6. Great list! I’ve seen Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour on a couple lists for the same reason. I like that you have Frankie on your list; she’s one of my all-time favorite characters. I should have included her on my list!

  7. I haven’t read most of these, but Laura would be fun (for only a day. I couldn’t do the whole living like that.). I think that being Cammie sounds really cool, but I’ll have to read the books first before making a decision on that!

  8. Great picks! I really want to start Alyxandra Harvey’s series. I also can’t wait to read Ruby Red.

    Thanks for sharing! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. I want to be Amy also. Roger is so swoony! : )
    I need to read the Alyxandra Harvey series. I’ve had it forever.

  10. I should have put a time traveler! Such a bonus!

    I’d pick Lola perhaps from Stephanie Perkins, though she didn’t make my list either! Basically these posts have shown I need to work on my fantasy life!

  11. I definitely need to read Into the wild nerd yonder sounds like my kind of book!
