Top Ten Characters I'd like to switch places with for 24 hours

Top Ten Tuesday is a fantastic Meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This weeks topic is:

Top Ten Characters I'd Like to Switch Places with for 24 hours

I have a lot of romantic ones in here, and ones with powers. Guess that's my focus cause it doesn't happen so much in real life!

Sydney from the Golden Lily by Richelle Mead

Um...last few chapters, hello! I'm sure I'm not the only one on pins and needles to see how things turn out in the follow up come February! Plus, she's discovery some magical powers of her own and the world that she lives in, while she'll have some hard choices to make, is pretty cool with lots of different species (if you can call them that).

Cat Barahal, the protagonist in Kate Elliot's Cold Magic series 

The love story in this runs the spectrum from almost killing each other to actually falling in love. Can't wait to see how it all culminates in the final installment, hopefully later this year!

Marasi from the Alloy of Law by Brandon Sanderson 

I'm SOO glad that the Mistborn universe isn't finished. I was parts disappointed that this book wasn't complete and yet excited that there should be more coming out eventually to fish up the story line. Waxilium and Wayne were lots of fun and Marasi did her fair share to help out! OR, any of the characters that can use Allomancy. I would LOVE to have that kind of power to jump around or levitate with!

Meliara from Crown Duel by Sherwood Smith

Talk about a slow burn romance! It was a little frustrating at times how miscommunications made the process longer, but it was a great pay off in the end!

Tess from The Decoy Princess by Dawn Cook

Don't let the ridiculous cover put you off! This is one of my most favorite series EVER! Tess is such a fun strong character and she meets her match in the frustratingly handsome captain of the guards. Man, I think I need to read this again!

Max from Maximum Ride by James Patterson

Not my most favorite series ever (I still haven't finished it) but it was pretty descent, and to have angel wings would be friggin awesome!

Mercy Thompson from Patricia Briggs' Moon Called

At any point in this series would I love to be Mercy. She doesn't have an easy life, but boy, having a hot werewolf husband sure makes it better! And she has some powers of her own! Being able to fix cars (I have a VW) would be an awesome ability, and she can change into a coyote at will, without all the pain of a werewolf transformation. Wasn't as much of a fan of the most recent in the series, but am looking forward to what else will come Mercy's way!

Lyra from the Golden Compass

A lot that happens in this book isn't happy stuff, but it's such an amazing world! And to have a daemon and other talking animals and magic galore, it would be awesome!

Deryn from Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld

This is such an awesome steampunk re-imagined history! I haven't finished the series, but it was off to a great start. The pictures add so much atmosphere and really helped me picture some of the more intricate and fantastical beasties!

Lessa from Dragon Flight by Anne McCaffrey

It's been awhile since I read this series, but I remember just being so blown away with how natural the world seemed and how well dragons worked into it. Can I have my own dragon? Pretty please?!? I think having a connection with a dragon would be friggin fantastic and to be able to fly, with the wind in your hair would be beyond description (but I'm glad writers, like Naomi Novik as well, can help us imagine it anyways!).

  2. Wow, haven't heard of most of these books but they sound awesome! Great top ten!

  3. so many fun ones, great list

    here's my TTT

  4. I love little Lyra in the Golden Compass, too. Good call on that one.

  5. I'd love to be Mercy! And you have a VW? How awesome! But she really is the coolest kind of shifter - quick and painless. That's the kind I'd like to be.

    I think I'm going to have to get my hands on a copy of the Bloodlines series. I've heard so many good things about it.

  6. Hey Scarlett! Thanks for stopping by my blog ~! I haven't heard of a lot of those books! :o But it all seems really interesting . I agree with Maximum Ride, I still haven't finished it but it would be awesome to have wings like that. (:

  7. Ohh Lyra from the Golden Compass! I haven't read the books, but I saw the movie. I've heard good things about Leviathan too. I should add them to be my neverending pile of to-be read books lol.

    Great List :)

    Thanks for stopping by my wordpress blog!

  8. thanks for stopping by and commenting on my post and thanks for the compliment of my blog name!

    i have only heard of bloodlines, but the rest sound pretty good! nice list!

    xo Stephanie @ Little Red Reads

  9. I was TOTALLY thinking of choosing Lyra! I would LOVE to read the alethiometre, and ride upon Iorek, and chat with Lee Scoresby, and find a branch for Serafina Pekkela, and have Pan as my Daemon, and of course just be with Will...

    Yes. Love the list for that choice alone!
    My Top Ten

  10. Haha, apart from Lyra I don't know any of your characters, but she's actually a great pick! I love her world, too!

  11. This is a great list! I loveeeee that you have some McCaffery. We had some of her books on our TTT last week!
    Also, Crown Jewel sounds great- I must find it at the library. Great TTT

  12. Lyra! Yes, that would be great and a bit scary! But, still fun! :) Great list!

  13. I picked Sydney for that exact same reason! I'd be a puddle of goo on the floor if I could have Adrian speak to me that way. It'd be amazing!

    Check out my top ten choices here!

    Sarah @ Breaking the Binding

  14. I've got Lyra as well. The rest are pretty unfamiliar to me :)

    Here's my TTT

  15. I actually haven't read any of these (!?!?!?) but your descriptions sound amazing!

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

  16. Max and Lyra are such great choices! :D

    Ivy Book Bindings

  17. Great list! It didn't even cross my mind to add Max from the Maximum Ride series. I'm surprised!

    Thanks for sharing. :)

  18. Oh, yeah... how could I forget Pern? I'd be Menolly, I guess.

  19. Oh, gosh! The Dragonriders of Pern series! I'd forgotten how much I loved those books. And Lyra's adventures were fantastic. I'd love to switch with her as well :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

  20. I've seen Lyra on a few lists and it's making me wish I'd added her to mine. What fun THAT would be!

    Thanks for stopping by! :)

  21. Crown Duel is waiting for me on my bookshelf :) I almost put Lyra, (daemon and all) on my list, but it was on last weeks, so I decided to make room for books I haven't mentioned (Harry Potter doesn't count :)

    From last week's list I am dying to read Mistborn! Love your lists, especially since I now have a ton of books to add to my to read list!

  22. LOL I wouldn't mind switching places with Sydney just to spend a day with Adrian!! <3
    And I'd love to my own personal daemon for a day!

    Thanks for stopping by! :)

  23. I'm not really familiar with any of these except Sydney and Lyra but these sound so fun! I'm so curious to see what my daemon would look like.

  24. Those are some awesome choices!~ Mercy yes!, and the Scott W series I agree - so fascinating would love to experience that. I have only read the first book thus far.

    And you steal my heart - love Anne McAffrey!!!
