T5W: Characters I Am Most Alike


It’s time for Top 5 Wednesdays, a weekly meme created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to know more or join as well, just go to the Goodreads group by clicking here. I actually did something very similar to this week’s topic, but first things first. This is the official task:

Choose characters you are like, not characters you WANT to be like. You can also choose one character trait you share with a particular character. For example, you may not have Hermione’s bravery, but you do have her book smarts!

So, when I previously did something very similar, it took me forever to find the proper characters (you can check that out here), still I am determined to try it again. I am not going to stick to just book characters though. There are so many possibilities out there after all.

Rory Gilmore (Gilmore Girls) – Love for Books

I think this is the most obvious one we can ALL relate to. That girl loved her books and so do I/we (not meaning my multiple personalities with that but rather the bookish community as whole).

Emily (Sinve You’ve Been Gone) – Very Fun Wallflower

Hey, I am fun! But sometimes it takes a little time until I feel comfortable enough to show my full on craziness to people I have just met. Emily isn’t all that crazy I guess, but she does come off as shy and needs some time to adjust in a new environment. I can definitely understand that!

Caroline Forbes (The Vampire Diaries) – Insecure, Neurotic Control Freak

This is very similar to when I chose Clara Oswald, but I have made peace with that side of myself. Not all things are in my control, but when I do have some power over what is going to happen, I am going to fret and worry and try to make it as perfect as possible – that’s just me!

Simon Lewis (The Mortal Instruments) – Nerd

That guy knows his references and I think it makes life all the funnier to quote my favourite shows/movies/books as well. Not doing that all that often though, because mostly people don’t get it and then it just gets awkward, but whatever!

Felicity Smoak (Arrow) – Smarts/Awkwardness

I think I love Felicity so much because I know that she is incredibly intelligent, but still manages to be super awkward. I am not saying I am a genius like her – definitely not – but my grades were always pretty good and I was even part of the mathletics once. That qualifies me as smart for sure. Also, the awkwardness – I so feel for her saying things the wrong way. I do that all the time.


So, who are you most alike? Leave your link to your T5W post if you want to!

  1. Off the top of my head, I’d have to say I’m very much like Richard Castle from Castle: both goofy, fun-loving authors. Another character I’m like is Sevro from Red Rising. We’re both a pair of nuts who love weird and strange things.

  2. I definitely see a lot of myself in Emily. It takes me a while to adjust to new places and people but once I feel comfortable enough I relax and let loose a bit more haha. Felicity Smoak ❤ Her awkwardness always comes across as charming and she was definitely the light the show needed to save it from all the doom and gloom haha.

  3. Great list! Since You’ve Been Gone was one of my favourites because Emily just reminded me of me! I loved seeing how she came out of her shell and became more fun! Simon is so hilarious, he’s the only thing that encourage me to continue watching Shadowhunters! Agree with you on Rory 🙂

    • I think that’s partially why I like Since You’ve Been Gone best out of all the Matson books.
      I love Alberto as Simon, he does a great job. But the main reason I am still watching is Matthew Daddario lol

      • I initially thought Since You’ve Been Gone would just be a cute romance but I was wrong! Can’t wait to read the Unexpected Everything. Haha Matthew is another reason why to continue watching it XD I liked him in the beginning of the series because he was quite sarcastic like Jace is in the books! but then he just irked me.

  4. I am probably the last person who hasn’t watched Gilmore Girls! xD
    I need some time before I feel comfortable enough with someone, and then I unleash my crazy side, and it’s not always good to see, haha. I’m glad it’s not just me!
    Insecure, Neurotic Control Freak = Eh, this is me!! Come to mommy! *hugs tightly* (yep, it looks I feel comfortable enough to be crazy tonight). I am a total control freak and I worry about everything. I just want it all to be perfect. I am working on letting things go but it will probably take a hundred thousand yoga classes and a few therapists!
    Loved your post!
