The “Me in Book Characters” Tag

Ever wonder what kind of book characters I would be? Well, I’m here to tell you exactly that. Thanks so much to Ash and Lo @ Windowsill Books for tagging me in this original tag that they created!

  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!

Hermione Granger from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

I would be amiss if I didn’t include Hermione at the top of this list, mostly because she was such an influential character to me when I was growing up. I definitely prioritize academics and studying, but I also really value friendship and I’m not afraid to confront someone when I really feel strongly about a cause.

Bilbo Baggins from The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

Like Bilbo at the start of this novel, I would certainly consider myself a homebody. I like being cozy at home instead out on risky adventures– that is, until I inevitably find myself tugged out the door! (I’m looking at you, study abroad…)

Pip from Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

Pip isn’t really sure of himself and is definitely still trying to figure things out even when he’s matured in age… sounds familiar!

Jane from Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

Perhaps this one is more aspirational, but I really admire and identify with Jane independence, wit, and thoughtfulness. I’ve always loved her as a character, especially her way of reflecting on her past. Besides, she says the best quotes:

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.” 

Matilda from Matilda by Roald Dahl

Reading, reading, reading– that’s me!! When I first read Matilda this past summer I immediately saw myself in this voracious little bookworm. So many trips to the library, so little time!

What book characters are you most like? What do you think of the ones I’ve mentioned? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. This is a great book tag idea! I would love to say that I was also like Hermione in school, but I was too painfully shy to be like her. Volunteer answers in class? No no no, that’s way too scary; even though I knew the answers I would wait for the teacher to call on me.

    1. Definitely understandable! I used to be really shy in class as well, until I got tired of awkward silences in classes when no one would answer a teacher’s question and then I started talking more. Hermione certainly had guts! 🙂


  2. Ah! Yay! We are so happy you did the tag! Hermione was such a good pick! We almost included her in our list as well! Jane was a great one too! We love Jane Eyre, and we honestly aspire to be like her! She is just so strong and intelligent and independent! And we totally relate to Bilbo as well. We are huge homebodies too!

    Thanks again for doing the tag! We really loved your list!

    Happy reading!

  3. I’d like to think I’m a combination of all these characters too. Of course, I love Hermione’s intelligence but also her protectiveness and loyalty to her friends. I also think I have a bit of Jane in me too. She’s one of my favourite characters ever. I’ve always admired her strong beliefs. This was a very interesting post to read! Loved your answers Holly!
