Original Tag: The “Me in Book Characters” Tag

Hey, rad readers!

We don’t know about you guys, but tags are some of our favorite posts! We love the fun and unique questions included in tags, and we feel that they really help you learn more about the blogger and their interests! So today, we have decided to create our own tag! We wanted to make one that would let you guys know more about us, and we thought the best way to do that was to describe ourselves using book characters! Thus, we have created the “Me in Book Characters Tag”!

The Rules:

  1. Thank the creators of the tag (Us! Ash & Lo @ Windowsill Books)
  2. Thank whoever tagged you!
  3. List 5 book characters who you are most like and explain why.
  4. Tag your friends!

Our Characters:

Simon Lewis from The Mortal Instruments

The awkward best friend who seems to be constantly making nerdy pop-culture references? Yup, that sounds like us! Simon is literally the most loyal friend and he seems to value friendship just as highly as we do, so we can easily identify with him. Plus, as much as we’d love to believe that we would be the kick-butt heroine who willingly takes on the world  in a fantasy novel, we would probably be a lot more like Simon who is just accidentally thrown into crazy situations. But hey, the boy does rise to the occasion and saves the day more than once, and we believe we would do the same! Also, Simon’s humor is our humor! So all in all, we are Simon Lewis haha!

Cath Avery from Fangirl

A quiet, book-loving girl who doesn’t understand the social aspects of college? Again, this couldn’t be more us. Fangirl is basically our biography. Nearly every thought Cath has in Fangirl we have had at some point in our life. Also, like us, Cath is a writer. Though she writes fan fiction and we write regular fiction, we could really identify with her love of writing and her desire to be in a world other than our own!

Jane Grey from My Lady Jane

Jane represents us on so many levels! From her obsession with books to her sharp wit to her desire to save the world, we can truly relate to Jane! She is independent and fiery, which are words we’d like to think apply to us!

Arsinoe from Three Dark Crowns

While we books may be our first love, the outdoors is a close second. We love nature and animals and just generally being outside. So we definitely identify with the Naturalist Queen, Arsinoe! And her tomboy attitude is totally us as well! We don’t care about frivolous things or our appearance. We just care about being with our friends and having fun!

Cammie Morgan from I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have to Kill You

Yes, we may look plain, small, and unassuming, but there is so much more to us than meets the eye! The same could be said of Cammie with her ordinary appearance, but she is really a talented spy. While we may not be trained spies (that you know of), we have so much more to us than one would think. Too often, people underestimate us because we are small and look sweet. However, we are strong, intelligent, and ready with a witty remark when necessary!

  1. Hiya guys! 🙂 This tag and this post are both SO FABULOUS, so thank you so much for tagging me! I’ll be sure to get on it as soon as I can, although it may take some time because I’m super busy with the holidays and whatnot at the moment. Thank you guys so much for thinking of me!
    You guys had a great list. I totally get what you’re saying about Cath, and I think I saw myself in her as well. Like you said, she’s quiet and introverted, and I really understand that, which is one reason why I enjoyed the book so much. 😊😊

    Happy reading to the both of you!

    1. Ah, thanks for the sweet words, friend! We are so glad you like the tag and post! We hope you enjoy the holidays and we look forward to seeing which characters you choose!

      And honestly, we feel like most readers can relate to Cath! That is probably why Fangirl is such a great book!

      Happy reading!!

  2. Congrats on creating such a great original tag– and thanks so much for tagging me!! ❤ I feel like I can relate a lot to Simon as well, especially the part about really valuing friendship. I'm definitely one of those people who would rather have a small group of really, really close friends than a large group of rather distant ones.

    1. Thanks so much! We had tons of fun creating this tag so we hope you have as much fun choosing your own characters as well!

      And we are the same way! We definitely prefer having a few close friends to a bunch of acquaintances! We just rather put our energy and time into a few awesome relationships!


  3. WHAT A FABULOUS TAG! (Sorry I love to shout things…) I really relate to Cath! I love the writer connection but also the general awkwardness of her and how she feels caught by different things in her life. I don’t know a lot of the other characters but SIMON! YES, he does make a difference even though he didn’t start as hero stuff… LOVE that! I need to check out some of these other books, they sound fun! Such a great Tag… THANKS for tagging me Ash and Lo! I will have lots of fun doing this next year! I’ll have to find the perfect characters and match it to wonderful fanart like you’ve done ♥️🤩😉

    1. DUDE, WE LOVE TO SHOUT TOO! Well…at least on the internet. In real life, we are pretty quiet haha! But we hope you enjoy the holiday season and we can’t wait to see your picks in the next year!! And we LOVE fan art! People are just so dang talented!! So we can’t see which fan art you include in your post as well!

  4. This is such an awesome tag and so cool that you created it! I relate to Cath too especially when I was in college. I didn’t want to get out of my shell and was fandom-obsessed so she was really easy to relate to!

    Thank you so much for tagging me! I can’t wait to post this in January 🙂

  5. Thanks so much for the tag, I love the idea behind this one because honestly there are quite a few bookish characters out there I identify with (kind of the fun of reading right?) Cath is definitely one of mine as well, and actually probably Jane from My Lady Jane as well! 🙂
    Great post, and again thanks for the tag! 😀

    1. THANK YOU! Cath is honestly one of the most realistic and relatable protagonists in YA! She is a book-loving nerd just like the rest of us haha! And feel free to do the tag too! We would love to see which characters you pick 🙂


  6. This is such a lovely tag, girls! I don’t actually feel like I relate to any of these characters but that’s what so great about everyone being different, isn’t it? 🙂 It would be boring otherwise! I definitely felt like I knew a lot more about you now, though, so bonus points for that ❤
    Thank you so much for tagging me and I'll try to get to it as soon as possible (though I do have a lot of tags on the backburner… Eek!)


  7. This is SUPER cute you two! Awesome job on creating a book tag (2018 goal here I come!). Thank you for tagging me; I love how this is fun but also allows us to get to know one another. I feel as though I relate to you both A LOT. Nerdy pop culture references and a lover of the outdoors? Totally me. I’m a HUGE nature lover, simply loving to walk in it with no destination in mind. READING in NATURE is even better 🙂


    1. AH THANK YOU! You are so sweet! And that is the fun thing about this tag! We are finding out so many things that we have in common with other bloggers (outside of reading haha!) And yes!! Reading outside is the absolute best! Thanks again, friend 🙂 We look forward to seeing which characters you choose!
