Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Fictional Characters I’d Like to Switch Places with for a Day
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!
This week’s TTT topic is Characters I’d Like To Switch Places With. I tweaked this topic a little, mainly just because I couldn’t think of any characters I’d want to permanently switch places with. I could think of plenty of characters I’d love to switch places with for a day though, just to walk in their shoes for a bit, so to speak. And as you can tell from my list, apparently I just really want to be a badass, even if it’s just for a day, haha!

10 Fictional Characters I’d Like to Switch Places with for a Day
1. HERMIONE GRANGER from the Harry Potter series
Oh, to be as smart and quick witted as Hermione, even if it’s just for one day!
2. MINERVA MCGONAGALL, also from the Harry Potter series
There’s something about Professor McGonagal that just always makes me feel like it would be so cool to be her.
I think it’s that combination of being feared, revered, and yet still beloved by her students.
I’d just love to be able to play in the Warcross Games. Plus, Emika’s hacking skills would be pretty great too.
4. ART3MIS from Ready Player One
Again, it’s a video game thing. I’d just love to play in the Oasis for a day and be a total badass like Art3mis.
5. DIANA from Wonder Woman: Warbringer
I mean, seriously. Who wouldn’t want to be a superhero for a day?
6. LILA BARD from the Shades of Magic trilogy
Pirate for a day? Yes, please!
7. DAENERYS TARGARYEN from the A Song of Ice and Fire series
Again, just for a day and mainly because I want to fly on a dragon’s back and call myself the Mother of Dragons, lol.
8. NANCY DREW from the Nancy Drew Mystery Stories
This one is mainly for the nostalgia factor since she’s a childhood favorite. And oh, to have her amazing detective skills.
9. ROBERT LANGDON from The Da Vinci Code
If I’m not being a badass for a day, I’m apparently drawn to characters who are intelligent and skilled at following clues
because I’d love to have Langdon’s ability to solve seemingly impossible puzzles, even just for a day.
10. JO MARCH from Little Women
Another childhood favorite, Jo is probably the only character I’d want to switch places with for more than a day,
simply because she becomes a writer, and oh what a dream come true that would be.

What characters would you like to trade places with for a day? Do we share any?
Professor McGonagal!! Yes! Also Nancy Drew is a great one.

Nancy Drew, great choice! I never would have thought of her. I would switch places with her in a heartbeat😊
Tammy @ Books, Bones & Buffy recently posted…THE DYSASTERS by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast – Review
Right? So many adventures and mysteries would await us.
I’d love to be Jo for a day. She was such a great character.

I’d also switch places with Art3mis 🙂 She is a great character, and to play around in Oasis would be so cool!
Right? I would love it!
Hermione and Lila were both on my list this week too!

Yay, great minds think alike! 🙂
Great list, Suzanne! #1—yes! I wouldn’t mind being Stephanie Plum for a day LOL. I’d also love to be Claire Randall from ‘Outlander’. Or maybe Scout Finch just because the whole world was a wonderment and mystery to her.

Stephanie Plum would be a lot of fun, especially if I got to hang out with Lula and Grandma Mazur.
Oh yes to be Hermione for one day!!!

It would be pretty cool, wouldn’t it?
Great list! I’d love to swap with someone at Hogwarts!
Here’s my TTT
Sarah recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday – Characters I’d Like To Swap Places With
Same here! I think I could have done a top ten list with just HP characters.
Da Vinci Code is an interesting choise, I do not think I saw enyone mentioning Robert LAngon in this TTT))

I haven’t seen him on any lists either.
I think we would all love to ride on the back of a dragon and be referred to as the Mother of Dragons! I could do without all the war and fighting though. Also, before she was riding dragons, she was on a horse all the time, which does not sound fun. Especially in the desert! I think I’d enjoy being Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter series.

Luna would be a fun choice!
Oooh let’s be Pirates for a day! Maybe we could be pirates who own Dragons! And can do magic!! That would be sooooo cool <3 Great list 😀

Sounds like a pretty amazing plan to me!
Nancy Drew was one smart cookie, and I adored her. And playing games professionally would be a great job, if people weren’t plotting to take me down the whole time.
Sam@wlabb recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday: Why Can’t I Be You?
I would love to have Robert Langdon’s brain for a day. I know my husband would love to go into the OASIS!
I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks it would be cool to hang out in the Oasis!
Emika for sure. I want to play Warcross! And daenerys as well just for that dragon riding thing.
Also Nancy Drew- I love those old mysteries!

Yay, I’m glad I’m not the only one who wants to play Warcross!
LOVE this list, Suzanne — in particular Nancy Drew and Robert Langdon — to have his brain for a day!

I’m glad I’m not the only one who would like to have Langdon’s brain for a day. I think it would be fascinating!
Oh, I love Jo! And yes, Hermione is an excellent choice for the Potter series. I wanted to be Nancy Drew as a preteen!
Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer recently posted…Doctor Who: Scratchman by Tom Baker
I’m glad I’m not the only one who wanted to be Nancy Drew. I always thought she was so cool.
See, I wouldn’t want to switch places with a badass because I’m not badass, and I’d just end up terrified/injured/dead lol. But if it were only for a day, and it were a day when nothing terrible was happening, then it’d be ok 😛 Fun list!
Kristen @ Metaphors and Moonlight recently posted…Visual Novel Review: Lake of Voices by GB Patch Games
LOL! Good point!
As long as I didn’t die, I’d love to switch places with Harry Potter characters. Lila and Dany would be fun because their worlds are so different from ours. Great list!
Aj @ Read All The Things! recently posted…Giveaway: Win A Book Of Your Choice
Right?! Not dying is high on my list too, which is why I said I’d only want to trade places for a day. Figured that would bump up my odds of survival in the HP world, lol.
Ooh Lila Bard. Yes! I agree with Hermione too, and I’d also add Luna on there. 🙂
ShootingStarsMag recently posted…Currently: March 2019 Edition
Oooh, yes. Luna is a great one. I think I could have probably written a top 10 of just Harry Potter characters I’d like to swap places with for a day.
