Aaah, I’m free! I’m honestly so excited because on Monday I did my uni exam after handing in coursework the week before and now I have just under two weeks of freedom with no essays, no assignments and no course readings just free time to fill with reading and blogging and basically anything I fancy doing! So, for my first post of this fantastic stress-free period I’m going to do a tag that the lovely Ash and Lo over at Windowsill Books came up with and were nice enough to tag me in. Thank you!!
- Thank the creators of the tag (Us! Ash and Lo @Windowsill Books)
- Thank whoever tagged you
- List 5 book characters who you are most like and why
- Tag your friends!
Hermione from the Harry Potter series by J.K.Rowling
Not only do I feel like me and Hermione are quite similar but I also strive to be like her because since I first read the Harry Potter series when I was younger she has been a massive inspiration! Both Hermione and I love school and learning as well as our friends who we would do anything for!
Matilda from Matilda by Roald Dahl
Ok so I might be a little old to compare myself to Matilda now but when I was younger I literally felt like she was my spirit animal. Luckily I didn’t have terrible parents like Matilda but we did both love reading, school, learning and visiting the library.
Cath from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
I didn’t read Fangirl until my second year of University but when I did at points I literally felt like I was reading about myself! I really struggled with Uni at the beginning but managed to find my place just like Cath! Also just like Cath I love books and fictional characters play a massively important role in my life (also I also love Simon and Baz!)
Elizabeth from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Elizabeth also loves reading (what did you expect from a book blogger?) and cares enormously about her sisters even if they sometimes get on her nerves (same Elizabeth, same) but she also has plenty of flaws like being judgemental and stubborn which I’m going to be honest, I can also relate to!
Sam from The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R.Tolkien
Right, so first off on this one I can hugely relate to Hobbits just as a race, I too love food and eating, socialising and parties especially if there is dancing! Like Sam, leaving home scares me (my quest to Mordor was definitely me leaving home to go to Uni) but I’d like to think that I dealt with everything that came my way bravely (sometimes I can’t believe I’m actually going to graduate this year!). I also love my friends just like Sam does!
So there we have it, 5 characters that I not only think I am similar to but aspire to be like too! I hope you enjoyed finding out a little more about me and the literary characters I identify with! Do we share any fictional characters who are similar to us?

I’m not sure if you guys have done this tag already so no worries if you have or just don’t fancy it!
