Sometimes I write a lot of reviews and not a lot about me on this blog. Yes, it is a book blog, but I am the blogger behind the books, right? 🙂 So tonight I am sharing a bit more about me. Sorry books!
I was so excited to get this tag earlier this year from the amazing Emily over at Rose Read. Thanks so much, Emily, for tagging me to do the “Me in 5 Characters Tag!”
As the title would suggest, this tag requires you to describe yourself by using 5 book characters. So, here’s a bit more about me through some of my favorite characters!
Anne of Green Gables // I identify so much with who Anne becomes after she comes to Green Gables. Unlike Anne, I had a beautiful, happy childhood. But like Anne, I have always loved reading. I love the classics. I love my childhood home and town. I longed for (and was luck to find) many bosom friends there. I left my home town and taught school. And I fell in love with a handsome boy who had admired me from afar for a time 🙂
Hermione Granger // I bet this one was a bit obvious, but it’s true! I think a big reason the Harry Potter series is so popular is because the characters are easy to identify with. I’m like Hermione for the obvious reasons like reading constantly and doing well in school ( can totally relate to the late night, stressful study sessions!). But I am also like her because I am a loyal friend, I fight for what I believe in, and I often prefer to follow the rules than to break them. Also, I really admire Emma Watson.
Juliet Ashton // I feel like, in another life, I could be this protagonist from The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer. She is an aspiring novelist (I’d love to write a book one day!) but she also wants to write something meaningful. She is devastated by the loss of her books when her London apartment is bombed in WWII (I would be too!). And she easily falls in love with life in the countryside of Guernsey While I have not yet been to Guernsey, I could quite happily like in the English countryside forever.
Lucy Pevensie // First, I am like C. S. Lewis’s classic Chronicles of Narnia character because I believe in magic. I like to think I would be like Lucy and find Narnia first. I love books because they can take me to new worlds and allow me to meet new friends. Books are magic. Like Lucy, I have always had a big imagination and I want to help those I love. I also love the journey Lucy goes on through the series and all she learns, often through mistakes or trials. I know my life has not always been easy, but I am grateful for the journey.
Laura Ingalls Wilder // I have fallen back in love with the Little House books this year. It’s easy for me to identify with Laura because she is so full of life and we both grew up in homes where love and happy memories were plentiful. She likes to be with people and be part of the group (as do I). She makes friends easily and I often joke that as soon as I’ve met someone they are my friend. She works hard and loves her family most of all. I feel my best when I have been productive during the day. And my family is my whole world.
