Top Ten Tuesday: Characters Whose Job I Wish I Had And Characters I Would Totally Work For (3/1/21)

Hello, Lovely Bookworms!

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.

Today’s prompt is Characters Whose Job I Wish I Had. This one is a bit of a toughy! I feel like I say that with most prompts but I am definitely feeling it with this one. I guess jobs aren’t something I usually pay much attention to but I guess I should from now on! I had to go back through my Goodreads lists to find some. 😂

1.) Employee at The Tourist Trap Owned by Graham Barnett (The Tourist Attraction by Sarah Morgenthaler)

He doesn’t have any employees but I would like to be one! He may be rough around the edges but he also seems like a fun guy and at least he would be a boss to leave you alone, haha.

2.) Chairty’s Job: A Fairy Godmother (Glimpsed by G.F. Miller)

This would be a great job for helping people! If I can’t fix my own life, why not help others make their dreams come true?

3.) Azriel’s Job: Spymaster (A Court of Thorns and Roses series by SJM)

I’m not actually sure I would be good at this job but it is one I would like to try! He always seems so suave and cool and least I wouldn’t have to work with anyone for the most part.

4.) Employee at Lucas’s Resort (Meet Me in Paradis by Libby Hubscher)

Lucas seems like such a great boss and is always caring when it comes to his employees. I feel like he would be understanding and that is always a nice quality to see in a boss.

5.) Cat’s Job: An Ace for Squad 312 (Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman)

Would I be good at this job? I think so. Does it sound fun? Yes! Honestly, all of the jobs for Squad 312 sound cool and it was hard to pick just one. I think this one suits me better though as I would be a pilot and I love to drive.

6.) Being a Dragon and Protector for Yona (Yona of the Dawn by Mizuho Kusanagi)

Yona is a great leader and doesn’t just go out to fight or seek revenge on her father. I love seeing her journey and it would be an honor to help protect her and also have a cool power!

7.) Ash’s Job: A Scribe for a Savant (Crown of Bones by A.K. Wilder)

I used to love to write and although I don’t do it much I think it would be cool to be a scribe! I mean my life isn’t adventurous but I might as well go write about someone elses.

8.) Ileth’s Job: A Dragoneer (Novice Dragoneer by E.E. Knight)

I love dragons and I think this one would be cool as you get to ride them but they talk! It’s How to Train Your Dragon but better!

9.) Bilbo’s Job: A Burglar (The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien)

Although I am sure I would be quite terrible at this job, I still would like a chance because of the great group of people he accompanies on this mission. I just want to be with all of them!

10.) Working the Ren Faire (Well Met / Well Played by Jen DeLuca)

This group of people sound like a fun group and I feel like I would make a ton of memories with them. It definitely wouldn’t be a boring summer and I could totally see myself as a barmaid!


What is a job you would like to have from a book? Any of these fit the bill?

    1. Yay! Her job just seems really cool. I thought about Zila’s job as the brain but reloaded that also has to do with medical needs and I don’t like blood. 🤣


  1. Yeees, I also had being a crew member of Squad 312 on my list! Omg, how much fun would that be? Sure, your life would be in peril 90% of the time but I think it’d be a blast 😂 I think being part of a ren faire would also be super fun! Great picks, Joanna!
