This tag is really fun and it was also difficult. I struggled to come up with five characters who I related too, but pulled through in the end! Thank you so much to Emma @ A Dreamer’s Library for tagging me!
The rules are as follows:
- Thank the creators of the tag
- Thank whoever tagged you!
- List 5 book characters who you are most like and explain why.
- Tag your friends!
Lara Jean (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before)
There is so much about Lara Jean that I identify with. Everything about her was pretty much me in high school. I was a little bit naive, a homebody, a baker, and fell for a football player.
Bridget Jones (The Bridget Jones’ Diary)
I never thought that I would ever be able to relate to Bridget Jones but here I am in my late twenties and I totally get her. This buzzfeed article about sums it up perfectly! I am just sitting here waiting for my Colin Firth…
Scout (To Kill a Mockingbird)
I always related to Scout and I can not really explain why. I think part of it is the fact that I have looked up to my dad and he always has words of wisdom. He may not be Atticus Finch (I mean who is?) but he comes pretty close. I also have a brother and our relationship is very similar to that between Scout and Jem. We were constantly coming up with games and using our imaginations!
Fortunately my home life was nothing like Matilda’s growing up, but I definitely relate to her passion for reading. Reading has always been an escape for me and it is rare for a day to go by where I do not read at least a few pages. I guess it doesn’t hurt that Matilda was one of my favourite movies as a kid.
Lena Kaligaris (The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants)
I had a group of three girl friends and each of us identified with one of the girls from The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants. For me, it was Lena. I think we have similar temperaments. She is more reserved and it takes her awhile to open up for someone. That is so me.
