Top Ten Tuesdays, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, feature lists related to all things bookish–characters, authors, titles, and favorites. They’re an excellent way to find new interesting books on a variety of topics, and to find bloggers that love the books you do.

Check out their blog for their top ten and lists by other bloggers!

May 7: Characters That Remind Me of Myself

This was a tough one!

  1. Elizabeth Bennett; Jane Austen. I have a bit of her biting sense of humor, and love of long walks.

2. Matilda; Roald Dahl. Though I don’t have her fondness for pranks, my childhood was an ocean of books like hers.

3. Susan Sto Helit; Terry Pratchett. I could only wish to be as bad@ss as Susan, but I like to think I have some of her spine.

4. Cath; Rainbow Rowell. I’m just as in love with some books as Cath, and I’m not so good with people.

5. Hermione; J.K. Rowling. I only correct people’s pronunciation out of love, I swear.

6. Kaylee; Joss Whedon. I don’t have her mechanical aptitude, but I strive for her bubbly optimism.

About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.

  1. I have to think about Hermione every time I come across it. LOL

  2. I love Elizabeth too! P and P is a favorite of mine.

  3. Ah! We both picked Matilda and Cath! Love your list!

  4. I’ve been seeing a lot of Hermione, and various characters from Harry Potter, on people’s lists this week. She was actually one of the first characters I read who I felt I could relate to, so I’m kind of gutted I didn’t include her on my list this week.
    Great picks for this week. 🙂

  5. I didn’t even think of Elizabeth Bennett! She would totally be on my list if I didn’t forget her. Great list!!

  6. Great list! I also see myself in Elizabeth, Matilda, and Hermone…. but I’m sure many bookworms like us do too 🙂
