Q.If you could pick one character in a book, movie or television show to swap places with, who would it be?

So most of the books that I love, I would never want to switch places with their characters, because the things that make the book so great (action, conflict, dealing with issues) are the things that I probably wouldn't be able to deal with if that was actually my life. I mean it's great to read about all the action and crazy stuff in Vampire Academy, but there's NO WAY I'd ever be brave or kick-A enough to actually be Rose.

So the characters I could think of whose lives I'd actually want to have are

-Lily, from "Dash & Lily's Book of Dares," by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan (because she gets to play that game with Dash that involves writing in a journal and leaving it in awesome places around New York City for the other person to find)

-Lola, from "Lola and the Boy Next Door," by Stephanie Perkins (because she has a ridiculously awesome wardrobe. Plus she gets CRICKET, and who in their right mind wouldn't want Cricket?)

-Taylor, from "Jellicoe Road," by Melina Marchetta (all the crap that happened to Taylor when she was younger would totally suck, but the territory wars seem like so much fun and she has great friends. But most of all, I just want to have Jonah Griggs, the swooniest YA boy of all time.)

Who would you want to switch places with?


  1. I haven't read any of the books, even though I've been wanting to read them for forever, but they all seem like pretty awesome characters!

  2. Great choices! New follower stopping by to say hello!

  10. I still haven't read Lola (or Anna! I'm so behind on the Stephanie Perkins love) but from the synopsis and reviews, she sounds like the kind of girl I've always wanted to be. I'm not artistic at all, but would love to be. Good choice!
