Character #1: Holden Caulfield from The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
Every time I think of Holden I feel the pain of feeling like everyone around you is a phony, because that’s exactly how I felt in the last 2 years of high school. His witty sarcasm and look on life are a little extreme, but I feel are entirely relatable. I think there is a little something for everyone in Holden.
Character #2: Howie Gersten from the I Hunt Killers Series by Barry Lyga
When I think of charters I really connected with, I look back on this series. Howie is a hemophiliac and faithful friend of Japer Dent, the main character. While I am not a hemophiliac, the way Howie is such close buds with Jasper reminds me of how I am with my friends. Once you’re my friend (and continue to be my friend), I try to everything I possibly can to do you right.
Character #3: Mary Katherine Blackwood from We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
While I am not a murderer, I do feel this innate connection with this character. I feel her squirly and spontaneous ideas and imagination match me in some way, and I can connect with that.
Character #4: Kvothe from The Kingskiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfus
I can’t pin-point exactly what is that I relate to this charter. Maybe the idea that he is constantly trying to achieve his dream, is loyal to the that people who treat him right, and has a passion he is constantly working to get better at. Yeah. (And if you haven’t read these books yet, WHAT ARE YOU DOING STILL READING THIS POST).
Character #5: Detective Stephen Moran from The Secret Place by Tana French
If I had to pick a character I felt I related to the most at this point in my life, it would probably be Stephen. Throughout the three novels you get to know him, his willingness to do what it takes to achieve his dream, yet his idea of life and the importance of friendships and relationships closely reflect mine.

Well, this one, I will admit, was difficult to pinpoint. But, it was so much fun! And, if you haven’t read any of the books above, I would highly recommend any of them!
