Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I Want To Switch Places With

Posted March 5, 2019 by meezcarrie in Top Ten Tuesday / 21 Comments

Happy Tuesday! Today’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is a fun one – Characters I Want to Switch Places With. It actually ended up being a little trickier than I thought it would be … namely, how to narrow it down short of saying “all the heroines”. #booknerdproblems

I’m dividing the list into two parts – based on why I want to switch places with a character.

These first five should be self-explanatory if you’ve seen my book boyfriends shirt 😉

If those are my top 5 book boyfriends, it stands to reason that I would love to switch places with these 5 heroines:

  • #myJames’ Andrea Sullivan (Five Days in Skye by Carla Laureano)
  • Ty Porter’s Celia Park-Porter (Meant to be Mine by Becky Wade)
  • Charlie Lionheart’s Ella Beckley (The Lady & The Lionheart by Joanne Bischof)
  • Vance Everstone’s Violet Hawthorne (The Cautious Maiden by Dawn Crandall)
  • Wes Harrison’s Eisley Barrett (Just the Way You Are by Pepper Basham)

Wanna live vicariously through these 5 heroines? Check out the books that introduced us:



These next five characters are people I’d like to switch places with because of something they do or someplace they live, etc.

  • Hermione Granger (Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling) – Hermione has access to all sorts of cool books (including Hogwarts: A History which I’m dying to read!) and she pretty much saves the day always, thanks to the books. Plus, I want to live at Hogwarts
  • Lucy Pevensie (The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis) – She gets to visit/live in Narnia and knows what Aslan sounds like. I totally want to switch places with Lucy!
  • Belle (Beauty & The Beast, Disney version) – Because who doesn’t want to fly across a bookshelf on a moving ladder… and that library!! Swoon! Forget the prince. Give me the books.
  • Claire Stewart (Until We Find Home by Cathy Gohlke) – She ends up in England’s Lake District where she crosses paths with Beatrix Potter & C.S. Lewis. Plus, she is part of the French Resistance, however unwittingly.
  • Willow Anderson (Never Let Go by Elizabeth Goddard) – She is a forensic genealogist, and I think that’s one of the coolest jobs ever. (The first coolest job ever is getting paid to read!)

Wanna live vicariously through these 5 heroines? Make sure these books are on your TBR list!



What about you? Are there some characters you’d like to switch places with?

    I knew you’d do Five Days in Skye so I didn’t. Lol
    It was tricky to figure out. I do love your list.

  2. Paula Shreckhise

    I need to get to some if these books. They have been on my TBR mountain long enough!

    I love your blog header.
    Hope you have a great day.
    I tend to fall for a lot of guys while reading, but my true hero is my husband.

    The George Martin quote says it all, “A reader lives a thousand lives…”
    Between the pages of books I’ve switched places with thousands of characters, so I’m not sure I could pick just ten, or twenty…
    I’m currently reading Brunch at Bittersweet Café and have switched places with Melody… because Justin 🙂

  5. Wow. How do you even BEGIN to pick?? When I was a kid, Laura Ingalls would have been my pick to trade places with because I went through a “pioneer” phase that lasted a LONG time. Then there’s Elizabeth Bennet – but only if Mr. Darcy is Colin Firth! LOL! (full discosure – I’ve attempted to read “Pride and Prejudice” but couldn’t get into it, but LOVE the miniseries!)

  6. I love that picture of your shirt! (I wish I had read some of those books to know why!) I need to have one made with some of my favorites. I think that might disturb my husband, though.

    I like that you chose Hermione. She’s such a smart chick. I think if I was going to go to Hogwarts, I would want to be some unknown side character so I could just watch in fascination as everything happens.

    I had seen your shirt when the book came out so I had a feeling Celia would be included. I would love to switch places with her too.
