May is, I hope, turning out to be a fresh start. And I am counting down the days to celebrate my 30th birthday. And even though I am undecided of what to do, I’m intrigued to see what this new decade will offer. But I have to admit that I’m more excited to read some of my anticipated books more than anything, really. 😂
Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. The first TTT prompt of the month is characters who remind us of ourselves. Ahaha, I get to show off my dark (and slightly weird) side. 😈 So get ready for stabby and powerful women!
Jude from The Folk of Air
When I first met Jude, I knew we’d love scheming ways to take control of Elfhame. And we wouldn’t bat an eye. She is a character I’d love to aspire to because she refuses to back down.
Nova from Supernova
Nova walks a fine line between hero and villain. And even though she’s picked a side (or has she?), she still questions who she is. And I do that daily. I see myself in characters who have a troubled and dark past that continues to shape who they are. And Nova is at the top of my list.
Zara from Honor Among Thieves
Oh, I love Zara. Her character spoke to me on a personal level. She’s on her own, she’s suffered at the hands of her father, but she found a family she can call her own. I just want to snuggle my smol bean.
Serina from Queen of Ruin
In the beginning, I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy Serina. But when she lost everything, she transformed into a formidable character. I loved her growth and her determination to destroy the very society she wanted to be apart.
Sarah from Adulthood Is a Myth
Anxiety, depression, agoraphobia, love of art and books all rolled up into one character. How can I relate to a comic book character? Well, I do. Sarah somehow takes every aspect of a person and makes it acceptable.
Kit from Hellhound’s Legion
Kit Davenport, the woman I envy like you wouldn’t believe, has survived untold horrors. And yet she finds love and fights for who and what she wants. How could you not relate to her? Okay, I’m not a coffee fiend like her. But I love her.
