Do you ever read a book and just think man, if I could have their life… Well I do, so I have compiled a list of some of the characters whose lives I want to live. There is a slight blurring of the lines between this post, and my post about worlds I would want to vacation in, but I tried to distinguish between the two best I could!
1. Paige Mahoney from The Bone Season
Yeah, her life is a tad-bit stressful, but who wouldn’t want clairvoyant powers?! I want to be able to visit people’s dreamscapes!
2. Diana from The Discovery of Witches
Because who doesn’t want a hot AF vampire boyfriend in addition to being a super-BA witch? (…let’s be honest, as much as I want her powers, I really just want to be wedded to a perfect vampire hottie.)
3. Nix from The Girl from Everywhere
I WANT A MAGICAL SHIP THAT WILL TAKE ME TO ANY LOCATION (fictional or real)!!!!!! See my review of this book here.
4. Hermione from the Harry Potter Series
Duuhhhhhhhhhh. Does this one even need an explanation? Who doesn’t want to live in the Harry Potter world?!
5. Peter Pan from well, Peter Pan
While I actually didn’t like this book that much, I still really enjoyed the whimsical world. I would very much like to be a 12-year-old boy who is surrounded by magical things, never has to grow up, and can fly.
6. ANYONE who lives in the Dawn Court from A Court of Wings and Ruin
I read about the Dawn Court palace in ACOWAR and wanted nothing more than to transport myself there immediately. HANDS DOWN my favorite place in that entire series. See my review of ACOWAR here.
7. Kell in the Shades of Magic Trilogy
I. WANT. TO. BE. AN. ANTARI. PERIOD. See my review of the first in the series, A Darker Shade of Magic, here!
8. Someone who works in Caraval
I want to be one of the many people who acts in Caraval. I feel like it’d be like working at (albeit a slightly more creepy) Disneyland, which is also something I greatly want to do. See my review here.
9. Myfawny Thomas in The Rook
She’s rich, she lives in London, and she’s powerful AF. Plus, she’s a smart-ass. I WANT TO BE HER. See my review here.
