So before starting this tag I wasn’t sure I could think of one character, let alone five, I shared traits with. However as I looked through the books on my bookshelves and on my Kindle I realised there were more than I thought. Picking one or two traits from each character I could find, before I knew it I had way more than five to choose from and my only issue was narrowing it down.
I was tagged by Yasaman at Following Muses and Izzi at Ravenclaw Book Club. Thank you both so much for the tag; I had a lot of fun with this one, like I do all the tags I’ve posted so far. Everyone should check out both their original posts and their blogs because they are both amazing people who post really interesting reviews and discussions.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Like Cath I am obviously a massive fan girl, maybe not for Simon Snow specifically but plenty of other fandom’s out there. Also like Cath I was a complete fish out of water when I started university; where Cath would prefer the company of her sister I preferred the company of my old friend who came to university with me rather than making new ones. I was unsocial and preferred to stay home and read rather than go out and enjoy the night/university life.
The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig
Like Nix I want to travel all around the world. Nix is desperate to learn how to Navigate so she can set off on her own and see the world from the helm of her ship. Unfortunately I don’t have a ship which can take me through all the different eras of history, but one day I’d love to have the funds and the freedom to travel all over the world and see places I’ve only ever read about.
Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
Etta is really passionate about the violin and her future playing. When I was in high school and sixth form I played both the guitar and the clarinet, and although I haven’t picked up either in a while music in general is still a massive part of my life. I am constantly listening to my iPod or downloading new songs, and honestly I’d rather leave my Kindle or book at home than my iPod.
A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Grey
While I’m not as talented at drawing as Marguerite obviously is I do enjoy it, and I consider myself a creative person. Also Marguerite is willing to go to the ends of the earth, and all through the multiverses, to save her family and those she loves. I’d like to think if I was ever in the same situation she was I would do the same; I love my family and my friends and if any of them were ever in trouble I would do anything I could to help them.
Cress by Marissa Meyer
Cress spends a lot of time daydreaming and creating worlds inside her head to escape the satellite she lives in. I do the same. Time and time again people have asked if I’m all right because I’ve just been staring off into the distance for a while not saying or doing anything, instead I’m creating whole worlds inside my head and daydreaming the minutes away.
