Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the gals at The Broke and the Bookish. For this week, here’s my the Top Six Characters I’d NEVER want to trade places with.
1. KATNISS EVERDEEN
from the Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
I love how strong and vulnerable she is at the same time. I understand the weight of her burdens and responsibilities. And she holds the love of one of the most awesome male characters I’ve ever read. But despite all these, I’d never want to trade places with her. For one, I don’t think I’d ever survive the Hunger Games arena.
2. HARRY POTTER
from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
The Harry Potter universe is one of the book worlds where I would like to live in (see HERE for the rest of my list). That being said, I’d never want to be Harry Potter. He had a lot to suffer through ever since he was born. Imagine that. Even through his baby eyes, he had seen his parents get killed, granted he wasn’t still aware of what it was he was seeing. But those leave scars, you know. And not just that one on his forehead.
3. WILL TRAYNOR
from Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
I’d never know what to think or how to feel if I were Will. He had his whole life ahead of him and an accident left him a quadriplegic. I can only imagine what his life is like, and although Jojo Moyes has done a great job in establishing this one in the book, it’s still a life that I couldn’t quite imagine living. Imagine the loss, not just of control of your body, but of your whole life.
4. MIA HALL
from If I Stay by Gayle Forman
As much as books are about the characters, the integral part of a story is really the conflict. So if an author uses a villain as the main conflict, I want to read about a villain who’s not one-dimensional. I want him or her to be as complicated as they can get. I want to care for him or her, on what his or her motivations are, what makes him or her tick.
5. TRIS PRIOR
from the Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth
Well, I wouldn’t trade places with any of the characters in the Divergent world but most especially with Tris. I know she has Four in her life but I just couldn’t imagine living in that world and with her kinds of problems, I would not know what to do.
6. NIKITA DUNCAN
from the Psy-Changeling series by Nalini Singh
Imagine being Psy in the amazing world that Nalini Singh has created. A Psy has to erase all emotions and feel nothing. And then imagine being a Psy who is also a mother. Granted I have no experience yet in motherhood but I could only imagine being a Psy and not being able to feel for your children or in Nikita’s case, her daughter.
