Here's today's fascinating question!

The magic book fairy pops out of your cereal box
and says:
 "You and your favorite character
(from a book of course) can switch places!"
Who are you going to switch with?

This is an incredibly easy question for a Twilight lover like me to answer!  I would switch with Bella Swan, of course!  In fact, when I read Twilight for the first time, I felt that I was, indeed, Bella Swan.  I could relate to her very well, because I tend to be a bit klutzy myself, although not to the degree she is!  I could also relate quite well to a lot of her feelings, with one notable exception -- I don't like hot weather at all!  I much prefer the cold weather, although I must admit, not quite as cold as it gets in the northern states.  (I'm in Miami, Florida, USA, and it gets pretty darn hot here every year, even before we start June!)

Edward is the type of man I wish I could have met, too.  He is very attentive, kind, and a great listener!  Adding to all this, he makes a girl's knees go weak without even touching her!  And, as if this weren't enough, he's a GREAT kisser!  However, the one thing that makes him totally irresistible is the fact that he's completely crazy about Bella!  What girl wouldn't want a guy to feel like that about her? 

I'm a hopeless I'd give anything to have a guy look at me the way Edward looks at Bella!!  I'd also love to hear the things Edward tells Bella....sigh....

Not that I don't love my husband, but he's a regular, real guy.  I understand that Edward is an ideal, a fantasy.  He is what most of us women want, and no real-life man can ever quite measure up to him.  But a girl can still dream, can't she?



  1. Sounds like you have a case of OCD, Obsessive Cullen Disorder. Haha! I know. Cheesy but when will I ever get to use that line again? I loved reading about your switch :-)

  2. Hi, Fable Fairy! Yes, I definitely DO suffer from this disorder! And I don't want to be cured, either!! Lol. Edward Cullen -- as played by Robert Pattinson -- is just sooooo romantically dreamy....

    Thanks for the comment! : )

  3. Edward Cullen is my dream guy too. My OCD just isn't as serious as yours. I don't wanna switch places with Bella though, don't want to be stalked by blood thirsty vampires.

  4. Hi,

    Hopping by for the follow friday.

    I do not know the book./character you name. Gonna check it out.

    Wishing you a wonderfull weekend!

    I thought about Twilight for my answer, but I didn't come up with anything original I'm afraid. You can check it out at

  6. Aw, that sure sounds easy! But yeah, Book Edward isn't a bad choice to be with at all. ;) Lol.

    New follower. :) Happy weekend!

  9. Bella seems to be a popular answer. I can see why, although I'd prefer to switch with Hermoine Granger. Who wouldn't?

    Glad to have found you via FF. New Follower!

  10. Hopping through. I know exactly what you mean about Bella. I would love to have an Edward. As time has gone by, I have grown just as big of crushes on Carlisle and Jasper. All the vamps are great. New follower!

  11. Thanks for the follow - following back!

  12. Jez: Yeah, I don't really like that part, either. However, I DO enjoy the parts where she gets rescued by Edward, particularly in the first book! He must make a supreme effort to suck out the venom left by James, the evil vampire, without killing Bella himself. It's only his great love for her that allows him to accomplish this. Sigh...

    Thanks for commenting!

    Kyanara: Wait a minute. You.have.never.heard. of.Twilight. Are you sure? How could you have missed all the media attention given to this series? The movies? The fans' adoration? Yes, you've got to find out what it's all about! if you're a hopeless romantic like me, you'll LOVE it all, too!!

    Thanks for the comment! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, as well!

    flashlight_reader: Yeah! Twilight is awesome!! But I'm sure what you decided to write is interesting, too! I'll go check it out.

    Thank you so much for the comment, as well as the follow!

  13. bex: Of course "book Edward" is a GREAT choice! But hey, so is "movie Edward"!! I have OPD, too!!! (That'a "Obsessive Pattinson Disorder". Lol.)

    Thanks for the comment & the follow! Happy weekend to you, too!

    Amy: Thanks for the compliments, as well as the follow!!

    Kati: Ohhh, I gotta go find out what your own take on this question is!

    Thanks for the comment & the follow!

  14. Susan: Yeah, I thought of Hermione Granger, too. I was undecided at first. I also had Jane Eyre in mind. But in the end, I picked Bella. I admit to having a major case of OCD!! (See comments above.)

    Thanks for commenting & following!!

    Alison: I know what you mean -- I love Carlisle myself! He's so good and kind, with very high moral standards! But my second major crush, right along with Carlisle, is Jacob. If Edward weren't in the picture, I would want Bella to end up with him!

    As for Jasper, he's very sweet, so I understand why you would have a crush on him.

    Thanks for the comment and the follow!

    Nicki: You're very welcome!! And thanks for following back!!

  15. Bella is a great choice! I'm a huge Alice can but my pick would be Elena from Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series. Not only is she the only female werewolf but she's also married to Clay. Yum! I'm your newest follower, happy weekend!
