Top Ten Tuesday this week is about
❄Top Ten Characters I'd like to switch places with ❄
(In no particular order)
Jude from the Folk of the Fair series by Holly Black
Okay so maybe Jude isn't exactly well treated among the fairies. She is mentally and physically bullied, but oh damn does she live in an interesting world among the generals and the princes...
Nina Zenik from Six of Crows duology/Grishaverse
Nina Zenik is a smart, strong, beautiful, determined, funny and warm person, so who wouldn't want to be her? And besides, she has a pretty good looking fellow too (or does she?)
Lucy Hutton from The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
I'm not usually the one for steamy contemporary books, but The Hating Game blew me away! Especially when the whole experience was from an audiobook. The love interest Joshua Templeton is one beautiful man and Lucy one lucky girl.
Lazlo Strange from Strange the Dreamer Duology by Laini Taylor
Lazlo finds out there is a whole new world out there that he could have never fathomed in his deepest, the most secret dreams. And on top of that, he meets the love of his life and of course, then there's no turning back.
Agnieszka from Uprooted by Naomi Novik
Another story about discovering a whole new world (but in a smaller different scale than in Strange the Dreamer), overcoming your fears and predispositions. A great character development arc!
Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
"You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you."
Sabetha Belacoros from Gentleman Bastard series by Scott Lynch
Sabetha isn't fully introduced into the storyline until the third book so I don't want to spoil anything else, so all that I'm going to say is that she is badass!
Sophie from Howl's Moving Castle by Diane Wynne Jones
Another story about another girl discovering something unexpected and great. Never gets old!!
Hermione Granger from Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
I'm guessing Hermione will be on so many lists this week, but honestly, Hermione got the best of two worlds: she gets to grow up in the muggle world, but gets to grow old in the magic one. She gets to go to Hogwarts when she is about to reach the age when children stop believing in magic, so the magic never loses its glory. Besides Hermione is smart, resourceful, and unselfish!
