I was tagged to do this by the lovely BookShelvesAndBiros. The tag seems to come from this post by BooksWithChemistry, although it somehow changed along the way and ended up being a little different. No one even mentions the original tag, only the person who tagged them, which I find a little strange, so I thought I would honour the person who started it.
The idea behind this tag, as it is now, is pretty simple – you choose 5 characters who represent you, who sort of make up who you are. I cheated a little and chose characters not only from books but also from TV shows. There just aren’t that many bookish characters that I identify with.
1. Percy Jackson (from the Percy Jackson series)
A loser with a terrible sense of humour who never gets anything right and loves his friends. That’s it. I could end this post right here.
2. Hermione Granger (from the Harry Potter series)
I didn’t wanna include her at first because it just seems like such an over-used, obvious answer, but I feel like I have to. She loves knowledge, she has an incredible sense of responsibility, she’s reliable, she’s an activist, she loves animals, she never abandons her principles, she can’t stand stupid people, and she’s not dramatic.
3. Simon Grace (from the Spiderwick series)
Simon is quiet and doesn’t bother anyone. He loves animals and spends most of his time reading. He really doesn’t like to cause trouble and he’s a good friend.
4. Charlie Bradbury (from Supernatural)
I am not as extroverted and cool as Charlie, but I am obsessed with books and TV shows and I’m a part of lots of fandoms. I also think I would react in a very similar way if I found out about all the supernatural stuff.
5. Ben Wyatt (from Parks and Recreation)
I think the main thing Ben and I have in common is that people can think that we’re a little serious and maybe even boring at first. Ben seems like this guy who only cares about his job and doesn’t like anyone, but once you get to know him he’s actually quite nice. I’m kind of like that too. And, obviously, we’re both nerds and total losers.
I have absolutely no idea whatsoever who has already done this tag, so I’m just gonna tag a bunch of lovely people.
If I haven’t tagged you and you still feel like doing this feel free!
‘Till next time and happy reading!
