ttt: characters that remind me of me

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?).

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.


  1. This is a really nice way to approach this week! I love your Matilda inclusion. Cute and clever!

  2. I like your "scares easily". haha Was it you that I saw Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants with? Because I did think Lena reminded me of you.

    I want to know who you thought of for other people! :)

  3. There are 6 characters in this list I can completely identify with! :) Great, great list!

  4. I like your list and relate to Lena was well.
