Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I Relate With

Happy Tuesday!! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) is a character freebie, which means we can choose any theme we wish as long as it involves characters. I thought it would be fun to list some characters that I relate with for various reasons.Β Some of these might be obvious connections, while others may take a little more digging.

What characters do you most relate with? What do you think of the characters on my list? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. Great choice for the topic! It’s so interesting all the ways in which we relate to characters. Also how a character can also be nothing like you and still go through the same struggle as you. For my list I went with some of the worst characters I’ve read about, because villains are always fun πŸ˜‹

    1. So true! I feel like that’s one of the best ways that books teach empathy–when we can relate with characters that at first don’t seem anything like us. Ooh your list sounds like so much fun!


  2. Okay, firstly? I love the layout of this post! It’s so nice and organized!

    I relate to Biblio and Matilda on the same level as you. I love being at home, but I also love that sense of adventure — roots and wings! And I would hope that the book blogging community would relate to Matilda! That would very awkward if they didn’t ha-ha!

    My Antonia! I read that in school and loved the story. It’s been such a long time since I’ve read it.

    I relate a lot to Lara Jean, but more because of her unique personality as a high schooler to not really NEED a lot of people in her life. She has a close knit group, which she’s perfectly content with — I relate to that a lot. And there was this quote in the book, something about how she likes the idea of love but is too scared to pursue it … I related to that HARDCORE! But like Lara Jean, I’m working on it.

    Yeah … can relate to Neville that way as well, but I kinda dig it. I used to think being an outsider was a bad thing, but now I feel like it makes me more unique πŸ™‚

    Great post! One character I would add for myself is Ponyboy Curtis from The Outsiders. He’s love of literature, learning, friends and the simple things in life is totally relatable to me. Like the way he digs sunsets and nature.

    Great post!

    1. Thank you so much, Jenna!! And thank you for your lovely comment ❀ I love that you mentioned Ponybony–he's such a great character to relate with! And I definitely agree with you about Lara Jean being content with a small group of really close people. She's one character I would love to be more like!

  3. Great choice of topic for today’s post and a great list of characters and traits too! Also, I love the graphics you’ve made for this post–they look so good 😍 I chose Matilda’s character for my prompt today as well, she’s such a good bookish character!

  4. Awesome list. I think I still relate to Matilda, not just in terms of her love of reading but also in the way that she wants to make changes when she sees an injustice. In some ways I think I relate to Jane Eyre’s outsider status as well. She feels unremarkable (even though she’s not!) and I often feel like that.
