top ten characters whose job i covet
posted by soe 1:06 am

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday from That Artsy Reader Girl asks us to share the top ten characters whose jobs I wish I had. It’s a fun topic, but I admit I had to go back to Goodreads to come up with enough answers to finish this week’s list.

If I didn’t develop educational materials, I might want to be:

  1. Bandette, master thief and righter of wrongs (the Bandette series by Paul Tobin and Colleen Hoover)
  2. Thursday Next, literary detective (the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde)
  3. Phoebe, tv script writer (Red Letter Days by Sarah-Jane Stratford
  4. Dani Brown, women’s studies professor (Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert)
  5. Phryne Fisher, private investigator (the Phyrne Fisher series by Kerry Greenwood)
  6. Nina Hill, bookseller (The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Alli Waxman)
  7. Tuesday Mooney, philanthropy leads researcher (Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts by Kate Rannicula)
  8. Kate, local journalist (The Lido by Libby Page)
  9. Lola Woodby, retrieval specialist (the Discreet Retrieval Agency series by Maia Chance)
  10. Vianne Rocher, chocolatier (Chocolat by Joanne Harris)

How about you? Are there characters from your reading whose career paths you envy for one reason or another?
