July 31: Top Ten Characters I’d Like To Switch Places With For 24 Hours

This is definitely a hard one to do because the characters I tend to read about have pretty crappy lives. I mean, they have to go through some serious stuff, guys (one person I'd never want to be is Katniss Everdeen, for instance.) Anyways, here's my list in no order:

1. Isabelle from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare.
She's a Shadowhunter, she has a whip, she's super bad ass, and her (sorta) boyfriend is Simon. She has some pretty awesome friends, and I'd love to just kick ass for a day.

2. Katy from Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout.
Okay, well, she doesn't have the best luck. She's nearly been killed, like, two--three times now? But still. She has Daemon. 

3. Cammie from the Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter.
She's a spy. 'Nuff said.

4. Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
She's a witch, her best friends are Harry and Ron, she goes to Hogwarts and she's super smart. Seriously, who wouldn't want to be her for a day?

5. Caelena from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.
She's a bad ass assassin. Who kicks major ass frequently. 

6. Annabeth Chase from the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan.
She's a Demi-God and the daughter of Athena. She also goes to Camp Half Blood. Freakin' awesome.

7. Tris from Divergent by Veronica Roth
Sure, she's another one who doesn't have the best life, but I'd love to be fearless (well, nearly) for a day.

8. Jasmine from the Deltora Quest series by Emily Rodda.
Ah, how I used to love this series as a kid. I'd love to go on adventures with Leif and Barda.

9. Anna from Anna and The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins.

10. Bella from the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer.
So I could punch everyone in the face. Especially Edward. And myself. Repeatedly. 


  1. I chose Celeana too! Even though it'd probably be terrifying, you can't say not being a kickass girl assassin! (And Dorian and Choal don't hurt, I won't lie...)

    My Top Ten

  2. I chose Tris and Hermiona too!! :) I like that you picked Anna, I'd pick some girl if I had read any book placed in Brazil. I must do some searching I guess! :)

    Tanja's TTT

  3. Everybody seems to want to switch with Hermione Granger! & I would too! lol. And Bella, yes, punch everyone in the face would be great to do! Also to kiss Edward and then move to much warmer place..and to hug Bella's dad, because wow, he needs one!

    1. Totally agree about hugging Bella's dad! Poor guy.

  4. I love how prominent Hermione is on every list today. Seriously, who wouldn't want to switch with her for a day?!

    Great list this week! I'm your newest follower :)

    1. Been seeing her on almost everyone's lists!

      Thank you! And I shall follow back. :'D

  5. I love your last one.... too funny!!! Cool list!

    My TTT

  6. Great list! I had Tris on mine as well. :) I really need to start reading Jennifer L. Armentrout's novels. They sound so good!

    Thanks for sharing. :)

    1. Yeah, definitely check them out! Freakin' fantastic is what they are.

  7. Finally someone who has someone from Galagher girls lol Totally agree with your choice, to be any character from the series would be rather cool

    1. Aha, I love the Gallagher Girls series! Ally Carter is a genius. Bex would be a good option, also. :}

  8. 4 and 7 are popular and even 9 is trying to creep up.

    1. True, I've been seeing Hermione and Tris on most people's lists. :)
