[Top Ten Tuesday] Top Ten Book Characters That Remind Me of Myself

Wednesday, May 08, 2019

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl since January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Howdy, guys!

Well, this is my second TTT post after the so long hiatus. To be honest, I don't really have idea about this topic because I rarely describe myself to be one of character that I read. But still, I'll try to make a list here.

So, let's check this out!

1. Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

Actually, I don't really look like Luna. I mean, I don't have that unique style, tho. But, I think I can relate with her uniqueness. Sometimes, everyone sees her as a weird person and I feel the same too some extent. I don't really give a damn about my style itself. I can go out with the random mix and match style and I don't care what the others would say about it. Well, that's the point that I think i have in common with Luna. We have our own world.

2. Edita from Fly to The Sky by Nina Ardianti and Moemoe Rizal

Character from Indonesian novel. Yap, Edita is a drama queen. She can be really nosy and annoying. But, she will really care to her friend. Well, just say that I am drama queen too and sometimes, I too much care of someone just like Edita. Sigh.

3. Alranita from Resign by Almira Bastari

No big reason why this characters remind me of myself. Why? Because this character reminds me because of her nickname. Yep, we share the same nickname, which is "Ra". Most of my online friends call me as "Ra" and I just can't help to smile when reading Alranita's nickname.

4. Audy from Sunset Holiday by Nina Ardianti dan Mahir Pradana

Audy is an impulsive person and she is very childish. She decided to do Eurotrip alone. At first, it's very hard for her to convince her family because she is the youngest one and once again, she is really childish. But after many discussion here and there, her family let Audy go. 

Okay, maybe I ain't doing Eurotrip like Audy but I can relate with what Audy feel. I am the youngest one in my family and it's really hard for them to let me live by myself since college. Yep, I have to convince them even though I am a childish, I still can be an independent person after all.

5. Audy from The Chronicles of Audy by Orizuka

Well, me and this Audy actually have the same major in college, which is International Relations. I can enjoy Audy's story because of her background. At least, I am very happy to read her analysis about some international event. I just like it.

6. Rahayu from Entrok by Okky Madasari

Hmm, maybe the reason why this character remind me of myself is, once again, the name. How could I didn't relate with Rahayu if in the fact we share the same name? To be honest, I don't really like Rahayu at Entrok. She is just.. hmm.. easily affected by other people. But one thing that I can be sure, she is really stick to what she believe. I can relate with that because I only believe what I believe and no one wouldn't easily make me turn around and broke my believing.

7. Jamie Sullivan from A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Spark

Oh, please, don't look me like that. I am not sick like her! Just be calm. Well, why Jamie can remind me of myself? Because Jamie is a social person. She will be really selfless for others happiness. Maybe I ain't that selfless person, but I want to be like her. I want to help each other without try to ask anything back. 

8. Jenny from Elegi Rindaldo by Bernard Batubara

The hesitation to marry. Well, I know that I am still young, but I could relate with Jenny. She don't want to marry because she hasn't find the exact meaning of marriage. For me, I am thinking the same thing. I know that I want to marry, but there's still some hesitation for me to do it. Is that marriage will solve any problems in my life? To be honest, it's not.

9. Miya from Lara Miya by Erlin Natawiria

I could describe Miya as an energetic person yet vulnerable. She is cheerful yet full of sorrow. I could relate with this character because I am an INFJ. With this unique personality, I have to admit that I could show two different kind of personalities. I could be really cheerful in one moment, then I can be quite and sad. Well, just like Miya actually.

10. Rere from Simple Lie by Nina Ardianti

I could relate because Rere's background is the same with me. Yes, she attend college in Universitas Indonesia. Which is, the same university as me. We have different major but I still can relate with her life as a university student.

Fyuuh. Finally I can finish the top ten list. I have to admit that this topic is really hard. I am really sorry for choosing a lot of Indonesian book - please, nowadays I rarely to read a book. So, I only choose character that popped up in my head.

So, how about you, guys? Which character that remind you of yourself?
