Top 5 Wednesday: Characters You Wouldn’t want to Switch Places With

Happy Wednesday everyone, I am here with another Top 5 Wednesday and today’s topic is:

September 21: Characters You WOULDN’T Want to Trade Places With
–We always talk about how cool it would be to be a character in our favorite books, but who would you not want to trade places with?

This is another topic I love, mainly because while I love most of these characters I would not want to go through what they went through.

Top 5 Wednesday is a group in Goodreads and was formerly created by Lainey at gingerreadslainey and is now done by Sam from Thoughts on Tomes. It is open to everyone.

Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games

Yes, she is one of my favorite YA protagonists but I seriously could not survive The Hunger Games. Most likely I would have been killed within the first few minutes.

Cleo from Falling Kingdoms series

In first book she loses her father, her sister and her kingdom. She is also engaged to something she hates and than engaged to another person she hates. She spends the series basically a prisoner in her own kingdom.

Nick Dunne from Gone Girl

When his wife goes “missing” he is the prime suspect. He had to deal with the media, police investigations and suspicions from the community. Yes, he may have done some bad things but he didn’t deserve what happened to him.

Hazel Grace Lancaster from The Fault in Our Stars

Because cancer sucks, and being diagnosed at a young age is terrible, but I love her spirit.

The Stark Family from A Song of Ice and Fire

I was thinking about putting just Sansa on the list, but than I realized that the entire Stark family has went through hell. Hopefully thanks to the show the Starks are finally come up.

There is my list of characters I wouldn’t want to switch places with. What characters would you not want to switch places with? Let me know in comments below.

 

Top 5 Wednesday: Mothers/Maternal Figures

Happy Wednesday everyone, for this weeks Top 5 Wednesday it is Top 5 Mothers/Maternal figures. This was a little hard for me because most mothers are usually dead, or evil. But I managed to find five who are the best mothers.

Molly Weasley from the Harry Potter series

I know, too obvious. But she is the definitive mother in most of the books I read. A mother of seven, who also accept Harry and Hermione as her own. Also is one of the members of the new Order of Phoenix. Also how can you not feel good during her fight of Bellatrix “NOT MY DAUGHTER YOU BITCH”.

Catelynn Stark from A Song of Ice and Fire

She, like Molly Weasley also cares very much about her family, and is also willing to do anything to protect them. She even made some tough choices in order to do so either for better or worse.

Alana from Saga

She is the definition of badass. She gives birth and than has to fight her way across the galaxy with a baby. I don’t think I know any women in literature who can do that.

Frannie Lancaster from The Fault in our Stars

While she is a minor character in the book, so I am judging mostly on the movie. She is a very caring mother dealing with the fact that her daughter as cancer. She is also very supportive of her daughter in her relationship with Gus.

Esme Cullen from the Twilight series

Like Molly Weasley she really does care for her family and accepts Bella as her own. Even in the later books she protects her family from either the werewolves or other vampires out to kill  Bella.

There’s my Top 5 Mothers/Maternal figures. Let me know your favorites in the comments below!
