Top Ten: Characters I’d Switch Places With

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme was characters I’d switch places with – which, just so you know, was really hard! I mostly ended up deciding that these characters had a not-so-difficult arc, existed in a world I found tolerable, and whose end justified the means. Onward!

Beth from Attachments // Diana from A Discovery of Witches // Elle from Geekerella // Susan from Giant Days // Cameron from If I’m Being Honest

Cathy from I Went to Vassar for This? // Molly from Lip Lock // Millie from My Favorite Half-Night Stand // Lizzie from Queen of Babble // Jessica from Sloppy Firsts

Top Ten: Books Featuring High Schoolers

logo-TopTenTuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme was a back to school freebie, so I chose books featuring high school students because, to me, nothing screams “back to school” more than public school.
