Top Ten Tuesday #2

Top Ten Tuesday is  weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish. Each week they give a topic, and then other blogs make their top ten list for that topic. 

This week's topic is Top Ten Characters We'd Want to Switch Places with for 24 Hours

This week's list is compiled by both Megan AND Rachel.

1. Bird from Sundancer by Shelley Peterson (and other books)

To sum it all up- Bird can talk to animals. I think that says all that needs to be said.

2. Hermione OR Ginny from Harry Potter by J.K.Rowling (Happy birthday Mrs. Rowling!)
Many reasons for this one, I guess. First, there's the magic factor, of course. Then there's also the Hogwarts thing and being part of the resistance and Dumbledore's Army and also getting such happy endings. And they are both smart and pretty and clever and good friends!

3. Molly Moon from the Molly Moon series by Georgia Byng
She's a talented hypnotist, can time travel, AND can read minds! Who wouldn't want to have this all-powerful life for a day or two? And I almost forgot! She is British! That just makes it all the better (Megan often she wishes she was British...)

4. Daine from the Immortals Series by Tamora Pierce
Has Rachel mentioned how much she loves Tamora Pierces' books, and how Tamora Pierce is one of her idols? Well, it's true. Anyways... Daine has the powers to talk to and heal animals, as well as turn into them (there's that animal-thing again...) she's independant, deadly with a bow and arrow and completely kick-ass. It's a close tie between her and Alanna from the Song of the Lioness quartet by the same author, but I think Daine wins out just because of the animal-thing.

5. Sapphire from Ingo by Helen Dunmore (also British!)
Sapphy can breathe under water, and that's just wicked cool. Even though she has to face some fearsome villains, being able to swim with the fishes at the sea floor for a day would be awesome! I've always wanted to see what's at the very bottom of the deepest parts of the ocean.

6. Sylvi from Pegasus by Robin McKinley
Sylvi is a princess in a kingdom where all people of upper status are bound to a pegasus of upper status. So she spends her days with a pegasus prince who she can talk to. (Starting to think that Rachel has a thing for talking to animals...) (Review coming soon, FYI!)

7. Susan or Lucy from the Narnia series by C.S.Lewis
They get to go to Narnia. And be Queens.

8. Nancy Drew from the Nancy Drew series by Carolyn Keene  
Her life is so exciting! It seems there would never be a dull moment in the super-sleuth life of Nancy Drew. Taking her place for a day would be an adventure and a half!

9. Buckbeak from Harry Potter by J.K.Rowling
Half horse, half eagle. He can fly. He lives with Hagrid. And then he lives with Sirius Black. Could life really be any better?

10. Tris from Divergent by Veronica Roth
She's fearless. Well, Dauntless actually. Life would be one huge adrenaline rush the way she lives her life. She's totally badass! She's tough, and has mega survival instincts, plus an admirable personality and drive. Plus, she has a hot boyfriend! Icing on the cake that is... :)
