6 Book Characters That Remind Me of Myself

Tuesday, May 07, 2019

I don't go into a book looking to find a character that is me, exactly. I love reading about all sorts of characters. However, it's always a pleasant surprise to find a book character who reacts similar to how I would or likes the same thing as me. It immerses me further into a story.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is: 6 Book Characters That Remind Me Of Myself:

Beatriz from Honor Among Thieves by Rachel Caine and Ann Aguirre: Beatriz reminded me so much of myself! Primarily, her love for music really made me bond with her. I'm not the best singer, nowhere near as good as Beatriz but relaxing with a few rounds of karaoke sound like a great way to spend some downtime.

Penny from Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi: Emergency Contact reminded me a lot of my freshman year of college. Also, just like Penny, I was deemed the mother of my friend group as my purse always contains potentially needed items: snacks, chapstick, bandaids, and more. You can never be too prepared.

Louisa from Still Me by Jojo Moyes: Louisa starts her journey in Me Before You and from there, her character explores herself. She's searching for what she wants and what she wants to be. Louisa really struck me as myself because we've all been where she was, we've all been lost searching for something to bring us back to ourselves.

Cath from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: If Emergency Contact was me in college, I would say Fangirl was me getting ready to go to college and the first few weeks there. New friends. Crowded dining halls. Emergency dance parties. And, of course, all the fanfiction.

Birdie from Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett: Something you may not know about me: I am a fan of the Nancy Drew PC games. In fact, I still play them to this day. I adore solving mysteries. I'm not as invested in finding little mysteries in my everyday life as Birdie is but I wouldn't mind playing the live-action Clue game that is featured in the book. Or the scavenger hunt.

Darius from Darius The Great Is Not Okay by Adib Khorram: I adored Darius from the start. We bonded over our mutual dislike for Subway (the sandwich shop, not the metro train). And our mutual love for Lord of the Rings.
