Happy Tuesday, my bookish peoples! This week for Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, the topic is characters I’d like to switch places with. Considering, as I write this on Monday night, I am bone tired from a crappy day at work and my back is absolutely killing me, I’d really trade places with any fictional characters right now.
So, in no particular order, here are the characters I’d willing trade places with…
Arwen (Lord of the Rings) – I mean…this should be obvious. Homegirl is ethereally pretty and has the best man in all of Middle Earth. That’s the dream.
Delilah Bard (A Darker Shade of Magic) – I have a chronic issue of overthinking and caring too damn much, which I really wish I could get rid of sometimes. Lilah does NOT have this issue and I definitely wouldn’t mind some adventures with Kell.
Nina Zenik (Six of Crows) – Waffles and Matthias. Enough said.
Esta (The Last Magician) – Snarky time traveler? Yeah, I could settle into that role.
Kaz Brekker (Six of Crows) – Sometimes I just want to drop it all and become a criminal mastermind.
Magnus Bane (Shadowhunter books) – Yes, hi, I would like to be a wonderfully, wickedly awesome high warlock. I would mostly use my magic for good. Mostly.
Kady Grant (The Illuminae Files) – Okay, I could definitely do without the intensely traumatic space adventure she went on, but I’ve always wanted super awesome computer hacker skills. And I look really good with pink hair.
Steris Harms (Mistborn Era 2) – Steris really is straight up about her personality in a way that I admire and wish I could achieve. Also, she gets to hang out with Wax and Wayne, so…
Margaret Hale (North & South) – This stictly boils down to to her fortune and the fact that she gets Mr. Thornton. Sorry, sometimes I just want a crap ton of money and a grumpy man to love me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Hermione Granger (Harry Potter) – Do I even need to explain this one?
If you got to drop into a character’s shoes, who would you choose?
