Top Ten Tuesday (#3): Characters I’d like to switch lives with

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted at The Broke and The Bookish where they post a list idea and everyone is welcome to post the list with their own answers.  This week’s theme is “Top Ten Characters I’d like to switch places with for 24 hours”.

1. Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter (J.K. Rowling) – I’d get to mess about at Hogwarts and play with magic, without all the expectations of maturity Hermione would get!

2. Liselle from the Mallorean (David Eddings) – she’s cunning, sarcastic & has Silk wrapped around her little finger.

3. Fitz from the Assassin trilogy (Robin Hobb) – first, learning about the Skill & the assassin arts would probably be pretty cool.  Secondly, the wolf!

4. Lyra from The Mortal Instruments (Philip Pullman) – because the world is fascinating, and who doesn’t want to hang out with Iorek?

5. Sookie from The Southern Vampire Mysteries (Charlaine Harris) – the mind reading thing could be fun for 24 hours, plus finding out HER friends’ thoughts probably wouldn’t be such an issue.  And it’d be nice to have both Bill and Eric fawning for a day!

6.  Eve Dallas from the In Death series (J. D. Robb) – set in the future with a massively rich romantic husband? Yes please! Can I have my 24 hours during a quiet work period though please?!

7. Daenerys Targaryen from A song of Fire and Ice series (George R.R. Martin) – because she has dragons!  If she goes and has a gruesome death or whatever, don’t tell me, I’m only on book 3!

8. Severus Snape from Harry Potter (J.K.Rowling) – Okay, I know this is a second Harry Potter answer, and I know it doesn’t fit with the end of the book, and it could be a miserable 24 hours BUT I think it could be hilarious to spend 24 hours being grumpy and snarky without anyone expecting anything else!

9. Clary from The Mortal Instruments (Cassandra Claire) – Honestly, I know the obvious seeming reason is Jace, but he doesn’t interest me! I’d just love to be able to draw!

10. Elena from Women of the Otherworld (particularly the first two) – She’s kickass, a werewolf and I think it’d be amazing to spend time at Stonehaven with the others.

I found this week REALLY tough – who would you like to switch with for a day?

  1. I was considering Lyra too! Definitely because of Iorek, and I would love to chat with Lee Scoresby and have Pan as my Daemon (and Will Parry by my side, too). And I love your reasonings for Severus Snape! Yes, could be miserable, but also tons of fun!

    My Top Ten

  2. I found it tough too, because so many of the characters have such miserable lives, and the real world is miserable enough, thank you.
    I have two Harry Potter characters too – in fact, we have one in common! And I have a professor too, but not Snape. Although I think he could be very interesting.

  3. Oh Luna is a great choice! I LOVE Eve Dallas (and Roarke of course.. Hellooooo!) but I was afraid I’d get caught in a 24 hours full of death and psycho killers lol – Same with Sookie. I was afraid of what I was gonna get… But then again, time with Eric and Bill…? Good choices! 🙂

  4. Great list! I had Clary on mine as well. 🙂

    I can’t believe I never put Luna on my list! She’s my favorite character in the Harry Potter series…

    Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  5. Fun list! I wanted to get into Hogwarts without the expectations Hermione would have, too. 😉

    David Eddings is on my must-read-very-soon list. Can’t wait to get hold of some of his books.
