Tag Tuesday: the “Me in Book Characters” Tag

Thank you very much to Ash and Lo from Windowsill Books for creating this tag and tagging me in it! Sorry it took so long to get to, it definitely took some thinking but it was so fun!

The Rules:

  1. Thank the creators of the tag (Us! Ash & Lo @ Windowsill Books)
  2. Thank whoever tagged you!
  3. List 5 book characters who you are most like and explain why.
  4. Tag your friends!

Alex from the Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis

Okay so not in her violent tendencies, but definitely in her perception of other women. I loved her outlook on women and sex, and it’s something that I aspire to think like all the time.

Kiko from Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman

I totally related to Kiko’s social anxiety. Like, I’ve never read a better description of social anxiety and how I feel in social situations.

Skulduggery Pleasant from Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy

If you’ve read this book, you know Skulduggery is just a sarcastic shit the whole time. And that’s honestly me I’m sorry. There’s one scene I distinctly remember where he’s arresting someone and goes

“I’m placing you under arrest for murder, conspiracy to commit murder and, I don’t know, possibly littering.”

And honestly, same. My brother and I still say that all the time.

Marjane from Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi

This one’s a little weird because it’s a memoir about her childhood. But I related so hard to Marjane. She’s headstrong and passionate and rebels in small but powerful ways. I really saw a lot of myself in her.

Diana Holland from the Luxe Series by Anna Godbersen

When I read these books, I related so much to Diana. She falls hard for the pretty boy (#relatable tbh), but in the end (*spoilers*) she leaves him to go to Paris by herself because it’s what best for her (*end of spoilers*). I still think she’s a great heroine and really enjoy and relate to her.

I’ve seen this tag going around quite a bit, so I’m not going to tag anyone. But if you want to do it, please let me know! I love reading people’s answers for this tag. And thanks again to Ash and Lo for tagging me!

Thanks for reading! xx

  1. This is a lot of fun! I don’t know the characters you mention, but I like your reasoning. 🙂 I may eventually do this book tag as well, because I’ve seen it going around a lot, too. (If I do, I’ll let you know!)
