I am so lame. Seriously, guys. Last night, I talked on the phone for 2 hours and then played Angry Birds for almost the same amount of time. I’m sort of behind the times in playing this game, but I just downloaded it for free on my google phone. Bad idea!!

What’s missing from the above list is writing the White Cat review. Agh! It will be forthcoming- I promise!! 🙂

Today’s FF Question: The magic book fairy pops out of your cereal box and says “you and your favorite character (from a book of course) can switch places!” Who are you going to switch with?

A: This is really a tough question! There are so many book characters I would trade places with!! I guess I’ll have to go with Kim Murray from Coronets and Steel (to see my review of this book, click here).

Kim can fence. She is a world-traveler. Oh, and her love interests include a dashing prince and a roguish duke. Her life is seriously adventurous, and I wouldn’t mind trading with her for a day.

…As long as that day didn’t include being kidnapped like she was in the book.  😀

What character would you choose to switch with?

About Lisa Parkin

I'm a hardcore lover of young adult fiction and have been reviewing books since 2011. Other interests include Downton Abbey, heat lightning storms, Harry Potter land and (begrudingly) one orange tabby.
  • Kim sounds like an exciting character. It’s no wonder that you would want to trade places with her for a day. You know all this talk of trading places with the book characters make me wonder what some of them would think of our world…

  • Hopping by to visit and follow! Wow, I’ve never heard of Coronets and Steel before, but any character who can fence sounds pretty cool to me. 🙂

  • I started reading The Poison Study because of your review of it and L-O-V-E-D it. Then I attacked the rest in the Study series and Glass series. I’ve also read the Iron King, Daughter, and Queen, which I thought were also good. I was wondering if you know any books similar to these that would be a good read?
    I’m a very avid reader. I’ve read all of Melissa Marr’s books, read the Sookie Stackhouse series, and I’m waiting for Nightshade to come out. As you can probably see I love fantasy. It’s the best escape for me, but I do love good books like Lunch In Paris and of course the classics. Love all your reviews. I don’t think I would’ve read The Poison Study because I never would’ve known about it if you hadn’t done a review on it. Thank you so much!

      Bethany!! I’m so happy you loved Poison Study!! That’s seriously one of my favorite books of all time!! 😀 Plus the Glass series is amazing too!! I’m so so so glad you liked the books I suggested. As a blogger, you write reviews and just hope people will read them. To know someone has actually read a book because I suggested it is an amazing feeling! You seriously made my day!!

      For other suggestions- I’m probably beating a dead horse here, but I absolutely suggest reading Divergent by Veronica Roth and The Hunger Games (if you haven’t already) by Suzanne Collins. They’re both great end-of-the-world fantasies, and they will get you addicted to Dystopian novels!

  • LISA! I LOVE sherwood smith but have never heard of this book! Now I can’t live without reading it! Thanks so much for bringing it to my attention!!!

    • Lisa

      Celesta- It was a really great book! I’ve only read a couple other things by Sherwood Smith, but I think Coronets and Steel is one of her best books! 🙂 I really hope you like it!! 😀

  • Nice choice. That’s how I am about most characters, too. I want their fun adventures without any of their problems.
    I just discovered Angry Birds about a week ago. It’s seriously addictive. 🙂

  • Hopping through. Love a character who can fence. I’d like to learn. And even more to be a world traveler.
