This week's Top Ten Tuesday on the Broke and the Bookish is top ten literary characters that remind you of yourself (or someone you know). I wanted to try and do people I know, but it got too complicated and I was afraid my choices wouldn't like their characters. So instead I'm going with the person I know best: myself!
I'm flattering myself in some of these choices, but I'm not deluded enough to think that any of them are a perfect fit.
Each of them though have some traits or interests that I share (or think I share? hope I share?).
TOP TEN TUESDAY:
Characters That Remind Me of Me
1. Jo March (of Little Women) = Bookish. Imaginative. Aspiring author.
2. Matilda Wormwood (of Matilda) = Frequent library patron. Smart (I say modestly!).
3. Cassandra Mortmain (of I Capture the Castle) = Young, hopeful writer.
4. Hermione Granger (of Harry Potter) = Bookish. A-Student. Planner.
5. Emma Morley (of One Day) = Writer. Francophile.
6. Bridget Jones (of Bridget Jones's Diary) = Awkward. Bad habits. Determined. Imperfect.
7. Catherine Morland (of Northanger Abbey) = Reader. Too imaginative. Scares easily.
8. (pre-baby) April Wheeler (of Revolutionary Road) = Wants travel, not suburbs. A dreamer.
9. Holden Caulfield (of The Catcher in the Rye) = Weary of phonies. :)
10. Lena Kaligaris (of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) = Quiet. Travels to Greece. Artistic.
