When I grow up, I want to be…. Ten characters whose job I wish I had! Top Ten Tuesday 03/02/2021

Hi friends,

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 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  

Today’s theme is Characters whose job I wish I had!


I never considered that many of my favorite heroines had such diverse and interesting jobs!

But here, have a look…


Librarians (I bet all book blogger dream job) like Elisabeth Scrivener or Samantha


Healer, like Nahri


I could also be a badass firefighter, like Cassie!


Or a hotheaded but very gifted pilot of spaceship like Spensa


I would also love to study art like Karou as I dreamt working for Disney as a kid!


If I am dreaming of being famous, I could either be a singer, like Daisy


Or an actress like Evelyn


I could also be a princess! Like America who will later become queen.


Or I could work in forensic and help solve murders with authopsy on cadavers like Audrey Rose Wadsworth!


See? All have so interesting jobs! Where do I sign?

Thanks for reading!

  1. I’d want to be a spy like in Gallagher Girls haha

  2. I have no idea what my dream job would be! Something quiet where I don’t have to talk to people!

    1. Librarian then LOL

  3. I seriously considered going to school for forensic science. The “science” part put me off because I’m really bad at math!

    1. I am bad at math too but applied to physics strangely I did great!

  4. I think we have some similar dream jobs! Working for Disney or being a librarian are right up there for me, too! 😉

    1. Disney is a big dream for me!

  5. I love the variety of jobs you have here. Librarian would definitely be my first choice, but the forensics appeal to me too.

  6. Ooo I’d like to have Spensa’s job and be a pilot!!!

    1. That sounds so cool Caro right?

  7. I always thought being a librarian would be the best job, but it reality I would just want to sit and read all the books. LOL

    1. I think that would be the same for me too Tanya!

  8. Librarian and forensics are some career paths i’ve been thinking to study!

  9. Librarian or healer, for sure. Spaceship pilot! Yes please!!!

    1. There is some shine to being a space pilot Greg!

    1. Forensic is a career I wouldn’t mind either as I love solving mysteries.

    1. Of course Kim! LOL

  12. I’m smiling at the Stalking Jack the Ripper cover, and imagining you stalking him down dark London alleyways, Sophie!

    1. Well Alex I think I would love that!

  13. This is such a wide range of occupations, I never really thought about this before. I love all your different choices, but for me I think librarian is the safest choice:-)
