Top Ten Tuesday

Today I'm participating in Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Four Characters Who Remind Me Of Myself Or Someone I Know In Real Life
1.  D. J. from The Dairy Queen Series by Catherine Gilbert Murdock.  I have a very tomboyish friend that when I first read these books and met D.J. made me automatically think of her.
Dairy Queen (Dairy Queen, #1)
2. Willa from Pretty Crooked by Elisa Ludwig.  I went to high school with a girl who reminds me so much of Willa.  She always kind of kept to herself until she met a new crowd and then started wearing the "cool" clothes and way overspending then she got in big trouble with her parents.

3. Marley from Marley & Me by John Grogan.  We had a very lovable but very mischievous dog who always seemed to be getting into trouble of some kind.

4. Cara from Populazzi by Elise Allen.  I knew many people in high school who tried too hard to be popular and move up that social ladder.  
That's all I got.  Either I'm really bad at matching real life people with characters from books, or I just have some very unique friends. 


  1. It was really hard for me too. Great list! Seems like some interesting people.

  2. Awww! Marley!!!

    I kind of hated this prompt. Although it made me realize there need to be more books about people as we are in real life!

  3. Ha! I have tried to relate characters in books to people I know in RL and I always come up blank. Maybe it's because I secretly want to pretend that I'm always the star of the story.


I love love love hearing your wonderful thoughts! Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.
