Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and Bookish. Every week (on Tuesday) they post a different topic and we create a list. This Tuesday’s is the: Top Ten Characters Who Remind Me Of Myself Or Someone I Know In Real Life.
This week, Meli and I decided to split the list 50/50 so she has five and I have five and this is what we got:
Lizzie Nichols from Queen of Babbles by Meg Cabot
She is one funny-romance seeking-messed-up girl but I couldn’t pick anybody else but her to represent me. Her overthinking-ness that creeps into her day to day life which further complicates anf sometimes helps her situation. She is honestly a character I love to this day…despite her little inability to keep a secret.
Sarah Moorehouse from Sleepless at Midnight by Jacquie D’Alessandro
The plain girl who’s a real jewel after all. Now while she seems mousy and sweet. She rather keep a low profile and not get people to notice her because she refuses to believe that she is THAT pretty, my good friend N is pretty much Sarah Moorehouse in a nut shell and like N, Sarah just wants to find somebody to love her and to accept her as who she is.
Blue Bailey from Natural Born Charmer by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
So this character reminds me a lot of our HG of Dreaming with Ink: Samii, tough, hates dramatic situations, not easy to say those 3 magical words and a real stunner to anyone who meets her. I chose Blue also mainly because of the scene when she caught her boyfriend cheating on her and instead of crying about it, she put up her fist and gave a mean right hook hahahah good times.
Dexter Jones from This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen
So he’s persistent and random and clumsy and just overall a good time. I remember when I read this book I couldn’t stop smiling at his attempts and nonsensicalness and I’m impressed at how Remy was able to resist this lovable lug. Through him I saw my friend Sasha (the same Sasha on this blog) if I need nonsense she’s who I go to and it always puts a smile on my face.
Chelsea Ross from Nothing But Trouble by Rachel Gibson
When she has a plan in mind she will not back down, despite the headings of her dear sister this girl only wants to listen to her feelings and options and let anything else follow afterwards. There is only person I can think of who fits this persona and her name is A, she likes change and likes to standout with her relentless helping hand, like our dear Chelsea…too bad for both ladies the sun doesn’t always shine down on them.
Katie Sandfordfrom Spin by Catherine McKenzie
I chose this character for myself because at the time that I was reading it my first thought of her was “That is so me!”. I wanted to be a journalist for a music magazine and I’m partial to red heads. She also took up running, and I LOVE to run.
Angel Face from Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk
Angel Face is that really loyal character (portrayed by the lovely Jared Leto in the film) in Fight Club that gets beat up by our narrator because he was jealous of the attention and praise he was getting from Tyler. Angel Face reminds me of my friend,K, because of her extreme loyalty, it bothers some people sometimes but heyyy what can you do?
Tristran Thorn from Stardust by Neil Gaiman
Tristran’s whole adventure starts when he tells the girl he likes he’ll get her a piece of that fallen star to prove his love. This need to show how far you’re willing to go for a crush or someone you love reminds me of my friend, J. It’s kind of cute sometimes watching him plan something for who ever he’s dating.
Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter series by J K Rowling
Luna’s soft spoken voice and wild imagination reminds me of my friend, A. They’re both very kind people, good listeners, and both of them have a very open view of the world. It’s quite interesting listening to her talk.
Naomi “Nomi” Nickel from A Complicated Kindness by Miriam Toews
I associate Nomi with Rebellion, and when my friend C had enough, she went down a very similar path of rebellion. I think a lot of teenagers go through that rebellion stage but as I read Nomi’s story, there was always something about her that reminded me of C that I havent been able to place my finger on.
Till next time~!
