Top Ten Doppelganger Characters

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there will be a new topic for everyone to create a top ten list with. 

This Weeks Topic:
Top Ten Characters Who Remind Me Of Myself Or Someone I Know In Real Life

Yay! I am very excited to be starting this new weekly meme. Making lists is one of my favorite things to do so this shall be fun. The only thing is they picked a pretty rough topic for my first week (haha). Lets see how many I can actually come up with.

1. Angela from "Unspoken" by Sarah Rees Brennan
Angela definitely reminds me of myself. She is very EXTREMELY sarcastic and doesn't like people. She has friends, but she doesn't like crowds and definitely isn't afraid to hurt someone's feelings. She also is a big fan of eating and sleeping, two of my loves =D. I am one of the most sarcastic people you will ever meet, I do not like people and I love sleep, but again just like Angela the people she does care about she would do anything for.

2. Gale from "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins
Gale reminds me who my boyfriend portrays himself as to outsiders. He is strong and manly and is willing to do anything for me. He isn't afraid to speak his mind and is willing to escape everything is there is a chance for things to get better. I think this is why I loved Gale so much. He was willing to do anything for Katniss and that is exactly what my boyfriend is about.

3. Peeta from "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins
On the other hand Peeta also reminds me of my boyfriend, but the side that only I get to see. The caring, gentle, romantic, loving side of Peeta is how my boyfriend behaves as well when he doesn't have to put up appearances (lol). He will never admit it, but my boyfriend is a huge softy and that bread baking, cake decorating Peeta is too =D

4. Doc from "Shadowland" by Meg Cabot
Doc reminds me of my little brother. He is really interested in making an impression on me since he is so much younger than I am. He tries to act tough in front of me and tries to make me like him. He would say or do anything I told him just so I would keep hanging around him and that is how Doc is.

5. Mari from "Where Will You Run?" by M.E. Franco
Mari totally reminds me of my mom. My mom is in law enforcement, but it is not just that. My mom is all about the truth and willing to be a detective to seek that out. My mom and I love cop shows too so she definitely has some extra tips from those to figure out a crime. Mari's sister is put up in a mental hospital, because she says a vampire tried to kill her. Obviously nobody believes vampires exist, even Mari, but Mari is willing to look into it anyways and that is my mom to a T. She doesn't believe in the paranormal, but if one of her family members say something paranormal is there she will check it out anyways.

6. Mari's sister from "Where Will You Run?" by M.E. Franco
Mari's sister remind me of my aunt. You know the one who says vampires are trying to kill her and gets put up in a mental home. Yea, I would put my aunt there too. Mari's sister also gets into some trouble during her youth and thinks of herself as a badass and again that is exactly how my aunt was when she was younger.

7. Phoebe from "Passing strange" by Daniel Waters
Phoebe reminds me of my best friend Veronica. She is very unique and beautiful. She also does her own thing and doesn't worry about what other people think. When Phoebe becomes part of the undead her parents don't accept it and pretend that she doesn't exist, but Phoebe tries to not let this get her down and live her life as normal as possible. Veronica would be the same way. She would just try to get through it and get the "family" she needs from her friends.

I am pretty sure that 7 characters are all that I can think of right now. I will say that with such a tough topic I made some pretty good progress especially it being my first Top Ten Tuesday. Hope you stick around for next weeks =D
