This week's topic:
If you could be reincarnated as any fictional character, which would it be?
Oh bother. My head hurts just thinking about this question. As others have mentioned, being a major fan of dystopian fiction doesn't give you much to work with here. Who the heck would want to be a Katniss or a Tris, Peeta and Four aside? Thanks, I think I'll pass on the severe PTSD and life-threatening situations. And then I thought about Katsa and Fire, but the degrees of Kevin Bacon to that creepster Leck kind of ruined that notion. Where there's Hermione, there's Voldy, Umbridge, and Bellatrix. Cinder—cyborg parts and a plague. (I kind of want to keep my parts. I'm weird that way.)
And then I had it:
I'd be Karou from Daughter of Smoke & Bone.
Prague, blue hair, really unique family/friends, and then there's Akiva. I'm pretty sure that 'smokin' hot angel boyfriend' is a list-topper. Karou's not without (more than) her fair share of struggles and sadness, but I think other aspects of her strange and fantastical life trump that for me. She's a talented artist, she's kickass, she's snarcastic and feisty—a multitude of things that I am not but wish I was. And seriously, doesn't this choice seem awfully appropriate given this particular topic of reincarnation? I'd love to be Karou.♥

Then again, maybe not. I'm fairly certain it would never stop taking my breath away.
