10 Characters I’d Switch Places With and Anna and the French Kiss Necklace

This week’s top 10 with Broke and the Bookish is so fun – 10 book characters you’d switch places with for 24 hours. So fun right? This was a lot harder than I expected. Sure there are tons of worlds I love but being a reader of dystopian and post apocalyptic novels makes me wary about really switching places with even my favorite of characters.  Here what I came up with.

Ginny Weasley from The Harry Potter Books – you get the awesomeness of the world but not quite the same level of danger as the main players

Poppet from The Night Circus – growing up in the circus, in all the amazingness with knowing some of the magic that sounds awesome

Petra from Ender’s Game  – it would be so awesome to be at Battle school and I think the unique feature of being a girl at battle school would be super cool

Art3mis from Ready Player One – umm just going through all the virtual worlds would be so cool and pretty much living a fandom dream

Fire from Fire – I would love to see the bridges. Especially Monster bridge at sunset.

Aria from Under the Never Sky – but when she’s still in the Realms. I didn’t care for most of the book wandering in the dessert but the Realms where you can go literally anywhere you can imagine would be amazing.

Artemis Fowl from the Artemis Fowl books – he’s always doing crazy things but seems totally safe, most of my adventurers are in real danger but I never fear for good old Artemis with Butler by his side. 

Tessa from the Infernal Devices books – all the cool magic plus going back when there were amazing dresses and you actually got dressed up for dinner every night that would be fun to see.

Annabeth from the Percy Jackson books – I would love to hang out at Camp Half-blood for a day.

Anna from Anna and the French Kiss – to be in boarding school in France um yeah I think I’d do that for a day

As always I’ve written reviews for each of these you can see them on my Goodreads. And if you want I’d love to be Goodreads friends :) Ohhh and I’m trying to get more book folk to link up their reviews and such at my weekly link party. If you have any post you want to share I’d love you to link up at my most recent party and come back on Wednesday for this weeks party!

And since I can’t resist a good book inspired necklace I made myself this baby after finding an awesome listing for banana shaped lampwork beads on etsy. All I did was add a jump ring, opening it sideways as opposed to simply spreading the ring, and it was ready to put on a chain.

I know I’m a total geek.


  1. The Night Circus and Ready Player One are on my to-read list! Might have to bump them up
    -Paula, TB&TB

  2. Really great list! I have yet to read the Night Circus but it is just sitting on my shelf! And Ender’s game was a way awesome read, I hope they do it justice in the movie!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I love your list :D I also had Art3mis on my TTT since I just finished Ready Player One. I also agree with your choice of Petra (even though I didn’t put her on my list – why didn’t I think of her?) and Annabeth, although I’d probably choose to be Hunter of Artemis.

    And your Anna & The French Kiss necklace is so cute :o And it’s great that you’re a total geek (well, at least in my opinion), because, um, I’m a geek too :D Whoopeee!

    Anyways, thanks for sharing! Here’s my TTT if you want to check it out(:

    PS: I added you on GR, if that’s okay(:

  4. cute necklace!!! I love it! Anna Banana!

    I’d totally trade places with her. It would be the most perfect 24 hrs ever.

  5. thanks guys, bwahaha I just realized how many times I said awesome in that posts…awesome

  6. I chose Aria too! And twisted it a teensy bit, because I definitely wanted to explore the Realms but also with Peregrine at my side. I didn’t write it in the post, but I would also sing for a solid few hours, just to hear how awesome Aria’s/my voice was! And I like your reasoning to be Ginny!

    My Top Ten

  7. I hate that I didn’t add anyone from The Night Circus. I would love to see it for 24 hours! And yay for Ginny! Great choices.

    My Top Ten Tuesday

  8. I Need to read more. I’m so behind in my reading list. I just finished the Hunger Games. Thanks for the recommendations and I’ll check them out.
    PS. I’m now following you on Blog Lovin.

  9. I almost put Petra and Aria on my list for the exact same reasons! Great list!

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

  10. I like your necklace. Visting from the link up party. You can visit my blog if you want.

  11. I haven’t seen Ginny on anyone’s list yet! I’ve only seen Harry & Hermione.

    Thanks for sharing. :)

  12. Ginny would be a great HP character to switch! Love that you mentioned Anna too. Cute necklace!!

  13. Ooo, Art3mis! I totally didn’t think about Ready Player One for this list, but I totally should have. That would be too fun. :)

    Thanks for stopping by LiteraryObsession.com!

  14. Ahhh I love that banana charm!! <3
    And yes I too would LOVE to see just what monster bridge looks like at sunset!
    Great picks! :)

  15. The world of The Night Circus and Ready Player One are such fantastic worlds! Ready Player One would be any geek’s dream come true. Super cute necklace, btw!

  16. I love this… do you write, too? A lot of avid readers are writers. Just wondering if you do National Novel Writing Month in November. Erin Morgenstern is sort of a NaNo hero, so it made me wonder…


  17. So what is the banana necklace from?

    If I ever have time again (maybe this winter? I think I say that every winter) I will add the ones I haven’t ready to my stack.

    When I saw Aria I immediately thought of Aria Stark from Game of Throwns series. I would love to be her for 24 hours!
