Myself in Five Characters Tag

It’s Thursday! Which means two things: one, there’s only one day left until the weekend and two, it’s tag day!

I enjoy doing tags from time to time because I think it helps of thinking of books and reading habits in a new way – if that makes any sense. Anyways,  I was tagged by the ever lovely Katherine at Mapping Souls with Words for the Myself in Five Characters tag, thank you! :) Sorry it took so long!

This tag is about picking characters that best represent you or a part of you, which sounds really interesting! We’ll see if I can find five characters.

Annabel Greene

51738

The first character to come to mind was Annabel Greene. I was never an ‘It Girl’, but what I identified with about Annabel is that she’s an avoider of conflict; she doesn’t want to do anything to cause excess worry or do something that would intentionally hurt the other’s feelings. I never thought she was a super exciting character, but she felt very real to me.

Mercy Thompson

But at the same time, I can be hugely sassy when I want to be and I’m extremely loyal to those closest to me. I’m sure if it came down to it, I would fight for those I care about (though I hope it wouldn’t be physically). I also know when to admit to my faults. Mercy may know how to fight, but she’s also really smart and knows how to hold her ground verbally – which I know how to do, most of the time haha. She also knows she isn’t perfect and neither is anyone else.  (clearly she’s more badass than I am)

Elizabeth Bennet

I’m sure I’m not the only one to put her on this kind of list. Lizzy is a very independent person, which I definitely am. We all know she’s an avid reader, but she’s also not afraid to show people that she’s smart and that she has a voice that wants to be heard. She’s not huge on society all the time, but does make appearances; I’m an ambivert, mostly. I think the biggest thing besides being a reader and enjoying the outdoors is that she doesn’t want to marry simply for the status or anything else. She wants a marriage; a partner – something I want as well. Like Lizzy, I’m also stubborn.

Luna Lovegood

Okay, so I really wanted to put Hermione down, but ultimately I always had a soft spot for Luna and I think ultimately I have more on common with Luna. She’s definitely a unique character and while everyone is unique in their own way, she doesn’t tend to care what others think. I used to, but then I got to college and found ‘my people’, but still came across diverse people. She’s also super sweet and open minded, things that I like to think I am as well.

Louisa/ Will

Okay, so maybe I’m cheating a little with putting two for the last slot. But both are from Me Before You and I identify with both. Louisa is quirky, which I am sometimes, but not quite the extent that Lou is. Mostly what I identify with is that she’s comfortable where she is in life. However, with Will, he’s a traveler and an adventurer. I find myself stuck between what these two represent to me. I’m comfortable, but at the same I don’t always realize that I’m afraid to go off and travel and find an adventure, but at the same time I kind of know that I really want that. I have a head of logic at time, but a heart that wishes to be gypsy and chase the sun kind of thing.

So this was a lot of fun! Now I want to reread some of these books! I feel like are more characters that I could add, but alas I was only allowed five.

As always, no pressure if you’re tagged!
