Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. I only did 7 books because it’s been awhile since I’ve read a book where I related a lot to a character. Still these are 7 great characters and I hope you enjoy it!
1. The Book of Essie by Meghan Maclean Weir
I just read this book recently and really connected with the main character. I grew up in a large very religious family and left and had to deal with wanting to speak my truth but not wanting to hurt anyone, but also being angry. I loved this story and how Essie dealt with it all.
2. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
I know, I know. I mention this book all the time. Forgive me. 😀 It’s just that, Cath is me. Quiet, writer, shy, anxious, loving books more than people. This was me all in high school. Thankfully now I’ve gone to therapy so I have a little better handle on my anxiety than Cath does. 😀
3. Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova
I honestly can’t remember now what was the actual very first book I read with a bisexual main character, but this is the first book that came to mind. Magic, witches and girls in love with girls. I loved this book!
4. The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner
This book was not all that I hoped it was, but man did I relate to the main character. Much like I related to Essie, this book deals with parents and religion and learning who you are.
5. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
A book with a lot of sisters? How could I not relate. I have 8 sisters!
6. Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery
I’ve had to completely replace my copies of this series because I read them all the time as a kid. I literally wore them out. But I always related to how Anne saw the world as magical, as people was wonderful, books as friends and I always wanted to be as happy as she was.
7. We Are Okay by Nina LaCour
Another book about a bisexual girl (actually is she bi or a lesbian? Clearly I need to reread this story), but anyway. I related to her feeling of wanting to run away when life gets too hard to deal with.
