Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all self-reflection, as I take a look at some of the fictional characters that remind me of myself. Now, obviously, none of the following characters are exactly me. But each of them have a few character traits that do remind me of myself.  Let’s go!

Leah  from Leah on the Offbeat

People either love or hate Leah and I’m in the category of those that love her. Sure, she can be rude and say the wrong thing, but she’s a teenager and her fears and insecurities and lashing out reminded me of myself as a teen.

Chandler and Monica from Friends

If anything, I’m definitely a mix of Chandler and Monica (OTP BTW). Sarcasm is my defense plus I’m a bit of a control freak.

Taylor from Queens of Geek

Taylor’s geekiness, fangirliness and social anxiety really spoke to me.

Rory from Gilmore Girls

It may be a cliché for us booklovers, but I still consider Rory as one of the best representations of myself out there. Introverted lover of books, likes to learn new things, loves junk food.

Cath from Fangirl

Take a heavy dose of fangirlyness and add loads of social anxiety and hey, it me!

Lara Jean from To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

Lara Jean made homebodies cool again. Ain’t nothing wrong with being a homebody! I also relate to her love of escaping into fantasy worlds. I only WISH I could bake like her though.

Yuri from Yuri on Ice

Anxious, insecure and shy softie with a tendency to eat their mood? Me.

Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer

One of my earliest role models, Willow reminded me of myself as a teen. She’s a witty, shy nerd, but she’s also an awesome friend (and I hope I am as well).

Honorable mentions:

Any sassy, sarcastic sidekick (think Seth Cohen, Stiles Stilinski or Nick Miller), Jessica Jones (without the badassery but with the same fashion choices and dark humor), Lane Kim from Gilmore Girls (gotta love the music), Samwise Gamgee (the most understated but loyal hobbit I aspire to be at all times), Desi Lee from I Believe in a Thing Called Love (awkward when it comes to love, but lover of kdramas) and Alice from Let’s Talk About Love (Pop Culture Fanatic,…)

Tell Me:
Do we have some fictional characters in common?
Do you also relate to any of the above characters?

    I love this list! I’m also quite sarcastic and can totally relate to characters who use sarcasm as bread and butter. Also, definitely relate to Lara and her tendency to escape in the fantasy world!

    I love your list! My husband adored Friends when it originally aired. Then, when Netflix picked it up, my two teen girls became OBSESSED with the show. It’s become a family thing. ?

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!
