Top Ten Tuesday: Book Characters That Remind Me of Myself

Today, I am participating in Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is “Characters that Remind Me of Myself.”

  1. Hermione Granger from Harry Potter – totally nerdy and bossy but with a true love for books (and some people).
  2. Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice – not the handsomest of the sisters but fairly well read and cerebral (I wish I had her way with words, though).
  3. Anna Fox from Woman in the Window – content to drink all the wine and never leave the house. YUP.
  4. Clara from Lonesome Dove – strong and reliable and doesn’t mince words.
  5. Stephanie Plum –  pretty clumsy but determined to do the right thing; loves junk food and having a good time and can be one kick ass chick when she wants to be.
  6. Ramona Quimby – tomboy and awkward – weren’t we all at that age?
  7. Lucy Pevensie, from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe – I am the youngest of three and totally identified with her feeling like no one takes her seriously.
  8. Billy from Where the Red Fern Grows – In him, I see my love of dogs and the outdoors and not all the characters have to be girls, right?
  9. Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables – this one might be a bit more aspirational, I wish I had her creative and daydreaming abilities. I feel like I am more on the serious side.
  10. Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games – resourceful and freaking tough.

  1. I’ve seen a lot of Hermione and Elizabeth Bennet, so you’re definitely not alone in those! So interesting that you identify with Lucy. I know that feeling, too, also being the youngest of three. xD It’s a burden all of us youngest siblings have to bear.

    Here’s my TTT post.

  2. Anna from woman in the Window- I agree! I remember as I was reading that I thought several times- yeah give me a glass of wine and an old movie, or a good book, and I’m good haha! And Katniss- awesome. 🙂

    I love the kids from the Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe too. Lucy was awesome!
