Top Ten Characters I'd Switch Places With For 24 Hours

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Top Ten Characters
I'd Switch Places With For 24 Hours
I'm going to work off the idea that I could choose the 24 hours I switch with them. Because if I had no control over the day I'm one of these characters...well, I'd probably change it a bit haha.

(Also, I did something similar to this a couple months ago for a freebie week: Top Ten Things From Books I Want To Do. Some of the following are repeats.)

Fred or George Weasley from the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
During a Quidditch match, because you can't tell me being a Beater wouldn't be awesome.

Shay from the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld
So I could hoverboard. (Full credit for the reminder of this to Steph and her comment on my old TTT)

Lennie from the Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
As long as the 24 hours were spent in the field bedroom with Joe playing the sax.

Aria from Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
Exploring a realm with Peregrine.

Church the Cat from The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare
I want to explore all the hidden nooks and crannies of the Institute!
(Clockwork Angel + Clockwork Prince reviews)

Puck Connelly from The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
Riding the island with Sean Kendrick.

Catherine Howard from Gilt by Katherine Longshore
AS LONG as it includes 1) a royal ball, and 2) not a day in the prison. All that finery, gowns and jewels!

Celeana from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Because then I'd be KICK. ASS.

Lola from Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
Working on the Marie Antoinette costume with Cricket by my side.

Hannah from Bunheads by Sophie Flack
Performance day. Dancing all day, with grace and fluidity. Heaven.

Magnus Bane from Cassie Clare's The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices
That much power and magic?! I'd love to explore that in 24 hours. Plus, I'd look like this and spend at least 12 of those hours staring at a mirror:
Godfrey Gao, recently cast as Magnus Bane in the City of Bones movie. YUM.

Who would you switch places with?
Leave your link in the comments and I'll hop by!

    haha, great list! Hoverboarding would be SO awesome. I really think that they need to invent that, stat! I also put a Scott Westerfeld book, but Leviathan instead, though I did really enjoy the ugly series. Thanks for sharing!

    Here's a link to mine!

    *high fives* I also chose Lennie as one of my ten! I actually also happen to play the clarinet haha(;

    Also, I'm curious to see what you thought of Gilt! I was lucky enough to attend an event where a bunch of authors gathered, and Katherine Longshore happened to be one of them! Usually I'm wary of historical fiction, but after books like Clockwork Angel and some other indie works I've reviewed, maybe I've changed my mind.

    I also agree with you about Harry Potter. I definitely would love to play Quidditch :D

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

    I'm incredibly uncoordinated so I'm not sure I'd be any good at being a beater but you're so right - that would be so much fun!

  4. Smash Attack AshJuly 31, 2012 at 3:29 AM

    Hoverboard FTW! Yes. I think that would be a lot of fun. And Church is one of the most creative ideas I've seen. What fun!

  5. UnknownJuly 31, 2012 at 4:06 AM

    I completely forgot about Shay! According to Back to the Future, we have another 3 years left for Hoverboards :)

  6. Tanja - TanychyJuly 31, 2012 at 4:07 AM

    I love Curch the Cat!! Great idea! :)
    I like you ten choices...we have few same series but different characters! :)

    Fred or George Weasley are definitely two characters that I'd like to switch places too. I think if I ever got to play Quidditch I'd be a beater too! It would be kind of like playing Squash. You could pretend that the bludger was someone that really annoyed you and hit it towards an opposing team member.

    Great List :)

  8. Kimberly @ Midnight Book GirlJuly 31, 2012 at 5:33 AM

    I would totaly play quidditch, but I'd make a better chaser (and really, I would pretty much do anything in the HP world). Exploring the realms made my list but I so should have made sure to mention Perry too. I have a preference to Etienne, but I would totally take Cricket too.

  9. NinaJuly 31, 2012 at 5:42 AM

    Serious, I need to read The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices series. I just need too. That guy looks good! Fred or George Weasley would be fun to switch with. They are hilarious!

  10. Bookworm BelleJuly 31, 2012 at 7:33 AM

    The Weasley brothers are a unique pick. Awesome!

  11. AnonymousJuly 31, 2012 at 7:41 AM

    Magnus Bane is such a great idea - I bet he'd get to have a lot more fun than Clary which is who I picked. I would love to be able to draw though, so maybe she wasn't such a bad choice.

    Fred & George are great answers too.

    I can't wait to read Throne of Glass, and I've added Gilt to my TBR list too now, thanks!

  12. UnknownJuly 31, 2012 at 9:12 AM

    Puck Connelly, YES! And JOE FREAKING FONTAINE, yessss... The forest bedroom. Outside Lennie's house in the rain. Joe's house drinking $400 bottles of wine. ANYWHERE, so long as Joe is there:)

    And WOW, helloo Magnus Bane!

    Great list, Ashley!

  13. AnonymousJuly 31, 2012 at 9:16 AM

    Wow, I love how you picked Church! I would never have thought of that! How awesome would it be to be both a cat and get to explore the Institute! Plus, Magnus Bane. A warlock? So cool! I have Under the Never Sky waiting to be read. Need to get to that! And Scorpio Races. Great list!

  14. MilkaJuly 31, 2012 at 10:43 AM

    Lennie from The Sky is Everywhere is a great choice to your list :)
    Thanks for stopping by at my blog!

  15. MichelleJuly 31, 2012 at 10:53 AM

    I like your list! Being a ballerina for a day would be cool!! and I also put george and fred on my list too :) Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  16. Kathryne (Paperback Fantasies)July 31, 2012 at 10:54 AM

    I would love to hoverboard or spend some time with Peregrine! Great choices. Thanks for stopping by!

  17. Katja WeinertJuly 31, 2012 at 11:22 AM

    Oh yes, being Magnus :)) Super list!

  18. KrystiannaJuly 31, 2012 at 11:43 AM

    I didn't even think of Shay! I absolutely adore the Uglies series.

    Thanks for sharing! :)

  19. SashaJuly 31, 2012 at 11:54 AM

    "Plus, I'd look like this and spend at least 12 of those hours staring at a mirror" - Haha, perfect comment is perfect!

    Great switcheroo choices!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)

  20. ReeJuly 31, 2012 at 12:03 PM

    Love your choices! I'd definitely enjoy switching with quite a few of those, as well. :)

    Thanks for stopping by! :)

  21. UnknownJuly 31, 2012 at 1:09 PM

    You have great picks! I can't believe I missed Bunheads, I loved reading that book! Thanks for stopping by!

  22. LBCJuly 31, 2012 at 3:46 PM

    The Sky is Everywhere is a great book. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  23. Sarah @ Y.A. LoveJuly 31, 2012 at 3:56 PM

    I've been wanting to read Gilt for a long time, and some of your reasons are my reasons for wanting to read it. The same applies to Throne of Glass. I like the variety you included!

  24. UnknownJuly 31, 2012 at 4:06 PM

    You have some of my favorite books in your list! We also have HP in common :) I love The Sky is Everywhere and Throne of Glass (although I'm not sure I want to be an assassin)

    Thanks for stopping by!

  25. marissa | Rae Gun RamblingsJuly 31, 2012 at 4:07 PM

    Church the cat would be a FANTASTIC one. my mind is spinning with the awesome possibilities man this topic just makes me want all of this to be possible

  26. JoieJuly 31, 2012 at 6:43 PM

    LOL Church the cat!! XD
    Fantastic picks! I wouldn't mind switching places with Magnus and raiding his closet!

  27. Sierra AbramsJuly 31, 2012 at 7:03 PM

    Whoohoo!! Great list Ashley! :D

  28. elenaJuly 31, 2012 at 7:38 PM

    YEP to pretty much all of this! All of these books have such good looking peeps & I'd love to know how it would be THAT attractive for Magnus too.

  29. fakestephAugust 1, 2012 at 7:36 AM

    HOVERBOARDING YES!! Also, as Magnus Bane, I'd be putting the moves on that mirror.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! Have a wonderful day <3
