Me in 5 Characters Tag

Thank you to the greenish bookshelf for tagging me in the ‘Me in 5 Characters’ – tag.  It’s fairly self-explanatory – name 5 characters that in a nutshell make up your character.  I’m a little bit late with this one – but ‘better late than never’ could be my middle name and in fact that brings me to my first character:


From Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland: The White Rabbit – I’m always late.  Put simply I underestimate the amount of time that I need to undertake a task and the actual reality of the situation.  I leave lots of things until the last minute and in fact everyone of my family and friends knows this about me.  I will alway be as late as I possibly can get away with being!


Bram Stoker’s Dracula – okay, to be clear – I don’t drink blood and I’m not one of the undead BUT I am a person who likes the night over the day!  When I’m off work I always stay up late at night – consequently this leads me to my next character:


Rip Van Winkle – I could win medals for sleeping.  I may stay up late into the wee hours but I also stay in bed very late the following day.  You couldn’t wake me if you tried.  I have to have my alarm clock at the other end of the room so that it makes me get out of bed to turn it off.  I have to have eight hours sleep or I’m like a bear with a sore head and I can sleep anywhere!  In a disco, on the bus, on a plane!


Marian Halcombe from Wilkie Collins Woman in White – I’d like to think I’d be resourceful and sensible like Marian – she makes a great adversary to the Count and she’s just one of those very upfront (blunt maybe), unromantic characters who doesn’t faint on a whim!


And finally, book loving – obviously!  There are a number of fictional characters that spring to mind but I think I would probably go with Liesel from The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak – okay, again just to be clear, I’ve not quite reached the stage of stealing books yet – but you have to remember that Liesel was desperate!

So, in a nutshell, I’m a nocturnal, sleepy, book reading rabbit who is never on time for anything!

Now, I should really choose some lucky people to tag myself but I’ve decided to tag you all – if you want to have a think about 5 characters that have similar traits then please go for it and drop me a link – surprisingly, this is a lot more difficult than I originally thought so I challenge you all! Mwahaahaha.

    This is an awesome selection of characters! I can totally see the Dracula/Rip Van Winkle combination, that makes perfect sense to me. We share the curse of lateness, so I think I’d have to include The White Rabbit on my list too. 😉

    • @lynnsbooks

      Haha – I hope you do include him – I don’t like to think I’m the only one who’s always fashionably/annoyingly late!

    This is a fun tag! I’d share the white rabbit. I have the same problem…I’m always late!! It doesn’t matter how hard I try…I even give myself a half-an-hour grace period, but it never seems to work.:-/

    • @lynnsbooks

      I think lateness must be a very common problem – that being said, my husband is the exact opposite which makes for some interesting debates!

    Haha…We share a few! I, too, could win medals for sleeping, and possibly for staying up until late (I should say early)…Plus I’m a reader, obviously. 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      That’s three the same then! So you’re also a nocturnal bunny with a book habit!

    What a fun meme and great answers 😀 I also sleep a lot! Although my problem isn’t night time sleep but afternoon naps…I love a nap 🙂 Off the top of my head, I think I would have say I am like Bilbo Baggins because I love my home comforts and food, and I dislike change to my routine 😛

    • @lynnsbooks

      Haha – I love that you chose Bilbo – how brilliant!

    For a moment, there, I was worried about the mention of Dracula, but then the explanation did a great deal to calm my fluttering heart!!! 😀 😀 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yes, I’m not one of the Immortals! Thankfully. Blood, ugh!
      Lynn 😀

  6. Jane @ Greenish Bookshelf

    Yay! Thanks for doing the tag! Love your creative answers 🙂

    LOL, this could be a post about me too! Well, minus the part being late (I’m too neurotic and obsessive about my schedules) but I am definitely more of a night owl, not a morning person at all, and I looooove my sleep. Finally the less said about drowning in my tbr the better.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Being late is almost my ‘thing’ now – I don’t think I could be on time if I really tried. Yeah, I love the night and I also love my bed!
      Lynn 😀
