Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I'd like to swap places with for 24 hours

Top Ten Tuesday at Broke and Bookish
Top ten characters I'd like to swap places with for 24 hours

1. Lucy Pevensie in The Chronicles of Narnia---I'd love to visit Narnia and Lucy is my favorite human character in the series.

2. Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice---Mr. Darcy, need I say more?

3. Emma in Emma---Because it would be lovely to be rich and beautiful for at least 24 hours.

4. Hermione Granger---So I can hang out in Hogwarts with my best friends, Ron and Harry.

5. Anne Shirley in Anne of Green Gables--- I'd like to step back in time and soak up her simpler life.

6. Jo March in Little Women---To be one of the March sisters for a few hours would be so fun.

7. Celia in The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern---To be an illusionist and in love with Marco would be magical.

8. Amy in Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson---To go on a road trip with a really nice guy.

9.Andi Alpers in Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly---because I'd love to go to Paris, in two time periods.

10. Ani in Goose Girl by Shannon Hale--- to be a princess with magical powers in a magical land would be awesome.

I realized when I was making this list how I do not want to live in the dystopian worlds that make up popular YA lit right now so I had to stretch back for examples.

What character would you like to swap places with for 24 hours?


  1. So many good ones! love your list

    here's my TTT

  2. Fantastic list. I think Lucy is a perfect person to want to switch with for a day!

  3. I was considering Josephine March too, I'd love to be in that house filled with her sisters and Marmee! Narnia is a great choice too, I'd love to explore that world in a wardrobe. Great list!

    My Top Ten

  4. Celia is such a good one! Now I'm angry that I didn't add her to mine. ;) I have Hermione on my list as well!

    My Top Ten Tuesday

  5. Interesting choices - Celia would be high on my list too.

  6. Emma! I have her on my list aswell. Yes, who doesn't want to be her for 24 hours. :) Also Lucy Pevensie would be fun too. Narnia! Yes, I want to see that!

  7. I picked Anne Shirley too, I loved reading this book when I was younger and I so wanted to live at Green Gables!

  8. Some great characters on here! I definitely considered the Jane Austen characters, Anne Shirley and Jo March for mine.

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

  9. Great list :) I must read The Night Circus - it's in so many brilliant lists.

  10. Awesome list. I have to finish the Night Circus. I only got halfway through. Classes were very busy. I have to agree about the dystopian characters. I put them on my list, but now I'm wondering if I'd be that brave. Thanks for stopping by!

  11. wow. The Night Circus...Such an inventive, magical, and just...creppily awesome world. I never thought of being Celia but I want to go change my answers now! lol...wonderful list!

  12. 4 and 5 has been popular today.

  13. Awesome top 10! I recently read Revolution & I loved it. I'd definitely want to switch places with Andi. :)

  14. Absolutely love Anne of Green Gables and Ani from Goose Girl! Great choices! Goose Girl was one of my favorite books growing up, I can't believe I forgot to add Ani :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  15. Yes! I didn't pick Celia, but that's a good one. Agree with Elizabeth Bennet and Hermione.

  16. We have one in common. I chose Lucy as one of mine too. I'm currently reading P&P and you'd think I would've put Lizzy, but no. I forgot. *rolls eyes* And, I did choose someone from Harry Potter, but I didn't choose Hermione. I wanted to be different. :)

  17. Hermione! Anne Shirley! What fun it'd be to switch out with either of those two. :)

    Thanks for stopping by LiteraryObsession.com! :)

  18. We do share 4 of the same characters! So funny! GREAT picks!

  19. Mr. Darcy would be a good reason to be Elizabeth.

  20. Yes, I love your choices! I'd like Mr. Darcy and go on a trip with a nice guy too!
