Switch Places with Me? Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over @That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Characters I’d Like to Switch Places With

There are way too many to count for this list… But off the top of my head:

Chloe Lyons, Chocolate Wishes

What a fantastic idea for a business, I love her whole family, the village she lives in, and she marries the delectable Raffy… Nuff said!

Annie Hawes, Extra Virgin

She just has an amazing life… And I want it!

Harry Potter

Ye. This one requires no explanation!

Kinsey Millhone, The Alphabet Series

She’s so badass… And she lives next door to Henry, kicking ass and solving crime… I want her life!

Lyra, His Dark Materials

She just has the best, most adventurous life! And she gets to visit such cool places… Love the whole worldbuilding in the series.

Irene, The Invisible Library series

A librarian of mystery, roaming the multiverse? Ye, I want to be her…

Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat Pray Love

I love her journey in this book! I know it’s at least partly fictionalised, and everything didn’t work out quite so peachy in real life… But, in this book, at least, I wanted to switch lives with her!

All the heroines in Jane Austen books

I love her books, her heroines, and the whole idea of living in Victorian high society.

Kell, A Darker Shade of Magic

This was on someone else’s list last week, and I was kicking myself for not picking it! I know he has his share of harrowing experiences, but I’d love to visit those worlds and be able to hop back and forth!

Emmeline, Dear Mrs Bird

I have a bit of a soft spot for WWII London, I think it really brought out the best in people in an incredibly difficult time, and it’s a fascinating era of history – plus Emmeline has such a cool life (though she doesn’t realise it).


What book character would you swop lives with for a day, if you could?

  1. Oh my goodness! Lyra!! I love her character so much! I remember speeding through that series and then re-reading it multiple times (planning on doing that again). I used to wish (okay … I still do) that I was Lyra and had my own daemon and went on adventures … I STILL WANT MY DAEMON!

    Oh my gosh … embarrassing story time. I used to wish Harry Potter had a sister and I was the sister and we all went on adventures and what not … yea … BIG imagination growing up lol!

  2. I want my own daemon too!! I think that’s half the reason I first got a dog 😂 hahaha I used to wish I was Harry Potter, for sure – and I would totally love to be his sister!

  3. Great list! I also envied Elizabeth a little bit because of her travels. She got me interested in all the places that she went. That and her spiritual journey were inspiring.
