It’s been a while since I’ve done a T5W but I felt like I could answer this topic, so yay. Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey @ gingerreadslainey and is currently hosted by Sam @ ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to join Top 5 Wednesday take a look at the Goodreads group!
The topic of today is “Characters you are most like.” The full task is as follows:
Choose characters you are like, not characters you WANT to be like. You can also choose one character trait you share with a particular character. For example, you may not have Hermione’s bravery, but you do have her book smarts!
Awesome. I’ll stick to book characters only for this one, even though I could only really think of three characters.. #fail
Simon Spier (Simon VS. the Homo Sapiens Agenda)
Something about Simon’s personality just spoke to me and I recognized myself in some of the things he was thinking about that I’ve never seen people talk about before. So I was like “aaaay, me too, bro!”
I didn’t really like Fangirl, but I can’t deny that Cath is me and I am Cath. She is so me on so many levels that it’s not even funny. Though I would never blatantly write fanfic for class, I’m insulted that she was such a moron.
Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games)
All right, so she’s definitely way braver and way more kickass than me, I’d be the first to die in the Hunger Games, not gonna lie. But I identify a lot with her on a more personal level. That’s what first hit me when I read these books. Give me more stoic, unromantic girls.
