Top Ten Tuesday — Characters Like Me

26 Jun

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers’ answers. Everyone is welcome to join.  If you can’t come up with ten, don’t worry about it—post as many as you can!

There have been a few characters in literature that I identify with, that remind me of myself.

1. Mary from The Secret Garden — I think I have the same need to be independent and strong as Mary.  But like her, I definitely need friends.

2. Beth from Little Women — Beth has this quiet vulnerability.

3. Anne Elliott from Persuasion — I just love her so much.  For some reason, I think that I’m a lot like her.

4. Alice from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland — Alice is curious.  Alice is confident (most of the time).  Alice is trying to find out who she is.  All things like me.

I could only find a few characters that are like me.  Funny how they are all from classic books that I love.
