Top Ten Characters Whose Job I Wish I Had

I tend to read almost exclusively YA, and many of the characters I read about do not actually have jobs! So I had to use a little creative licence on whether or not what they did was considered a job or a duty, whether they were paid for it or it was volunteer/against their will/they are too young to have a real job, etc.

  1. Rasmira’s job as a warrior in Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller
  2. Lyra’s job as a security specialist in Sentinels of the Galaxy by Maria V Snyder
  3. Avery’s healing ‘job’ in Touch of Power by Maria V Snyder
  4. Any of the characters who work with horses in Anna Sewell’s Black Beauty
  5. Zara’s job as an Honor aboard a sentient spaceship in the Honors series by Rachel Caine and Ann Aguirre
  6. Theta Knight’s job as a Follies dancer in The Diviners by Libba Bray
  7. Jane’s job as a zombie killer in Dread Nation
  8. Odessa’s job as a necromancer in Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh
  9. Lirael’s job as a librarian/spoiler in The Old Kingdom series by Garth Nix
  10. Tea’s job as a bone witch in The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco
