Top 10 Tuesday: Characters that Remind Me of Myself

Welcome back to Top 10 Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl!

This week’s prompt is Characters That Remind Me of Myself. This is such a fun topic! I am a bit stereotypical when it comes to characters that remind me of myself. Or perhaps it’s that I aspire to be like these (mostly) classic characters. Regardless, these are some of my favorite characters from some of my favorite books. Enjoy!

Jo March, Little Women // I am an aspiring writer like Jo, with a matching ability to lose my temper. Although, I would have married Laurie.

Eleanor Dashwood, Sense and Sensibility // I always get Eleanor when I’ve taken “which Jane Austen character are you?” quizzes. I think it fits because I am rather practical, I’m a planner, and while I adore Elizabeth Bennett, I am not quite as daring as she is.

Anne Elliot, Persuasion // I can appreciate Anne’s tendencies to rely on the opinions of people she admires for advice. But I also choose what will make me happy (and I like to think it doesn’t take me so many years to find happiness!)

Hermione Granger, Harry Potter Series // Classic in so many ways. I am very much like Hermione as a student–a recovering perfectionist who always wanted A’s.

Anne Shirley, Anne of Green Gables // I love reading and dreaming like Anne. And I have grown very attached to my homes over the years. Anne is very attached to place like me.

Lucy Pevensie, The Chronicles of Narnia // I like to think I would go through the wardrobe into Narnia. And I definitely will always believe in Narnia.

Liesel Meminger, The Book Thief // Words have power. I like to think I would have had the courage to help a friend and hide a Jew during WWII. And I know that books and words would have given me courage during a war.

Juliet Ashton, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society // I want to write something that means something. I think friendships are important. And I would fall in love with Guernsey just like Juliet does.

Marianne Daventry, Edenbrooke // I love this book and the way Marianne comes to see herself in the best ways through Philip. I feel the same way about my sweetheart.

Rosalind Penderwick, The Penderwicks Series // I’m an oldest sibling like Rosalind. So everything she does and how she protects and leads her family really resonates with me.

Which characters remind you of yourself?
