Top 5 Wednesday 

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly post that is hosted by Sam from Thoughts On Tomes and there is also a Goodreads group where you can find more information. This weeks topic is characters you wouldn’t want to trade places with.

Characters I wouldn’t want to trade places with:


I feel like this is a fairly obvious choice, but I couldn’t help but put it on my list. Seriously, who would really want to trade places with Katniss? I would’ve been dead within the first minute of the Games beginning so there would not have even been a full book, much less an entire series.


Theodore Finch from All the Bright Places is my next choice. He is just such a tormented character, I wouldn’t want to live with all his pain. I still need to write my review for this one, I listened to it and it was really great.


Paige from My Girl is my next pick. If you’ve read this then you’ll immediately know why I picked her. If not, I’m afraid I don’t want to spoil things, just trust me when I say no one wants to be her.


Poor Anna from No Turning Back. She has to make a quick decision in order to save the life of her infant daughter and kills a teenage boy to protect her.I can’t imagine being in that situation! She deals with intense media scrutiny, guilt and some other awful things I can’t reveal. 


Jessie from Last to Die is my final choice. At the beginning of the book there is a shooting at the school where she teaches. As if that isn’t enough of a reason to not want to switch with her, she soon begins to be hunted by a sadistic killer named Caleb. No thank you!

What characters would you guys not want to trade places with? Do you agree with any of my choices?

    Agree with these choices! Katniss may be obvious but she would certainly be on my list haha. And I would be the first dead in the hunger games. In fact, I’d not be able to survive where she lives either so I’d be useless in her place 🙂
