This week’s Top 5 Wednesday theme is “star of the show.” What are 5 books in which you would want to be the main character?
I had trouble with this top 5. There are books I’d want to be see their world, but I don’t want to live in them. There are other books where I’d want to be an ancillary character in. And then in some books I just want to be an observer.
Star of the Show
After lots of thinking, here are my 5 picks (with caveats):
1. Discovery of Witches:
No caveats here! Diana is a badass witch, a tenured professor of history, and has a close group of friends and family.
2. Pride & Prejudice: Elizabeth has always been a favorite character of mine. I wouldn’t exactly want to stay in Regency era for long as a woman, but it’d an interesting trip.
3. The Shadow of the Wind:
Daniel’s visit to the Cemetery of Forgotten Books is the main reason I’d jump into this book.
4. Aimée Leduc Investigations:
Aimée’s life as a private detective in Paris is the kind of fictional life I’d like to experience.
5. American Gods:
Ok, so I do not want Shadow’s life. I do want to meet all the gods and talk to them.
