I have a happy life. I have a wonderful family and friends. I retired from a job I love. I like my home very much.
Some might say my life is...well, a bit dull. If I was going to trade places with a character, I think I'd pick characters that lead adventurous lives. Like...
Lucy and Edmund from Voyage of the Dawn Treader
They, along with their cousin (who I would not want to be) are taken into a painting and end up aboard the Dawn Treader ship and travel to some islands and almost get their ship sunk by a sea serpent and meet some merpeople.
Jack and his aunt's butler from By the Great Horn Spoon!
They stowaway on a ship and join in the California Gold Rush.

The five explore an island and a treasure from a sunken ship.
Tomasu, Lord Shiguru, Shirakawa Kaede, and Lady Maruyama from Across the Nightingale Floor

Hal and Roger from Amazon Adventure

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. Each Tuesday That Artsy Reader Girl assigns a topic and then post her top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join her and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.
