{Top Ten Tuesday} Trade Places With Me, Will Ya?

Posted March 5, 2019 by Leah in Memes & Features, Top 10 Tuesday / 35 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. 

Today’s Top Ten is all about characters I’d like to switch places with. I had a lot of fun with this topic;  For one reason or another–most of them very selfish–here’s a few characters I’d do the switcheroo with and why.


Lara Jean Song Covey from the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series

In the beginning of To All the Boys, Lara Jean kind of annoyed me with her naivete (although her panic about first driving a car is my story as well), but she is kind, generous, loving, and intelligent. Her closeness to her family is endearing, and her style and baking abilities are amazing. Although she didn’t end up with the boy I wanted her to be with View Spoiler », sign me up to fill her vintage shoes!


Anna Olyphant from Anna and the French Kiss

I hated the romance in this book, which is a major deal since this is a romance. So you’re probably wondering, “Leah, why would you want to trade places with the title character then?” The redeeming quality for me was that this takes place in Paris, France. She didn’t want to go to boarding school in Paris. This baffles me. So I’ll go to boarding school in Paris for her and avoid St. Clair, problem solved.


Moana from Moana

I LOVE Moana! She radiates awesomeness–from her fearlessness at facing the unknown to her love for her people (her bond with her grandmother is the best). That she would match wits with a narcissistic demigod while exploring the seas makes her even more amazing.


Vasya from the Winternight trilogy

I will not tire of my appreciation for the Winternight series, and my love for Vasya is no exception. She’s strong, brave, and fiercely loyal to her loved ones. She also has the ability to see the other world of earth spirits and the lord of winter. Her legacy is legendary and it would be an honor to trade places with her for a day.


Sarah from Labyrinth

I joined the Labyrinth fanbase late, but after seeing the movie for the first time, I got the appeal. What a quest Sarah’s is, traveling to the land of the Goblin King to save her baby brother. Meeting fantastical creatures (Ludo!) and the Goblin King himself is great, too.


Aventurine from The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart

Because who wouldn’t want to be a tough dragon with a taste for chocolate?


Claire Randall/Fraser from the Outlander series

Very selfish reason for wanting to trade places with Claire. Aside from seeing Europe and trying to avoid being accused of witchcraft, I’d want to trade places with her to meet Jamie Fraser, the Scots warrior she meets when she time travels back to the 1700s. Leah Fraser has a nice ring to it, don’t you think ? …I’ll show myself out.

      Definite perks to being Lara Jean. Yeah, after I posted this, I was really wondering if I was serious about wanting to trade places with Claire. I was too blinded by my crush on Jamie.

  1. Dani

    I would switch places with Lara Jean so I could spend my free time baking my heart out. (And Peter K.)

    Totally agree about Anna. Like girl, BOARDING SCHOOL IN PARIS. Get it together!

    Always Moana. Thanks to you, I’ll be singing this entire movie in my head all day 🙂

      I would do nothing but bake if I were Lara Jean.

      Right? I was in complete shock when she was grumbling about going to boarding school IN PARIS. Who is this girl?

      And as Maui would say; You’re welcome! 😉

  2. Oooh, you’ve got some really good picks here! So much yes to Moana! Maybe just a little bit because I’d also get to hang out with Maui. xD Sarah (from Labyrinth) is such a great choice, too! When I was younger, I totally would’ve traded my younger sibling if that’s all it took to summon Jareth. I mean, that seems like such a small sacrifice LOL.

    • Leah

      Maui’s a riot. 🙂 And I really tried to keep my cool when I was writing my reasons for trading places with Sarah, but Jareth plays a major factor in it. I didn’t want to go all flailing fangirl over him in my post.

    • Leah

      I agree with the guarantee to go home unharmed. And I didn’t want to fangirl too much over meeting Jareth…but that’s a definite reason to want to be Sarah.

  3. Greg

    I haven’t seen Moana but from what I HAVE seen it looks like she has a Hawaii/ Polynesia setting going on, and I’m all for hanging out in that part of the world, so yup! Ha ha and Paris wouldn’t be half bad either.
