Top Ten Tuesday | Characters I’d Like to Switch Places With

Top Ten Tuesday (5)

This was much harder than I expected! Mostly because I read a lot of YA and I don’t want to live in the middle of a war, even if there are hot fairies.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

The rules are simple:

  • Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want.
  • Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
  • Add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s post so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists.
  • Or if you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.

June Wrap Up

Crap, how is June over already? Why does summer have to go by so quickly?! Luckily for us we enjoyed June while it lasted and got some great reads in. Jess finally joined the Leigh Bardugo fan club, we finished The Red Queen series and Circe, and fell in love with Sara Wolf’s Bring Me Their Hearts and Laini Taylor’s Strange the Dreamer. Outside our book lives, Jess visited Key West and Dallas while Teagan went to the Grand Tetons and the Sawtooths.
