When I was little I loved the Ramona books. I even told my family that I changed my name to Ramona. They had to start calling me Ramona or I wouldn't come. Not even to the table to eat. LOL

When I turned 30 my sister sent me an original hardcover edition of Ramona Forever. When the movie came out everyone asked me if I was going to see it. Well, of course.......

I was such a little character.

How about u? Does someone leap off the page?

I have always wanted to be Alice in Alice In Wonderland. Wonderland fascinated me. To my delight, in kindergarten, we did a play on Alice in Wonderland. I only got to be one of the flowers but that was okay. I was in Wonderland. My favorite books and movies are from the book or adaptations...I adored the mini-series that Syfy did a few years ago (and fell in love with Hatter).

I always had an affinity for Trixie Belden. I first read these books when I was very young and revisited them occasionally over the years.

I wonder how many people identify with someone from the Harry Potter books. DH always gets a chuckle when we watch Hermione bc he says I can be a bit like her. Esp when she shoots Ron dirty looks when he insults her reading habits.

I don't know if there's just one character I really relate to but a group of characters I can really relate or would love to be are Kresley Cole's Valkyries. They are awesome!

My mother has always said that she thought I was the reincarnation of Scarlett O'Hara. LOL, I'm not really sure exactly what she meant by that.... :oops:

Nothing really from my childhood, but recently I see dribs and drabs of myself in Kristen Ashley's leads, there are little things about them that have me thinking, "that is so me" (clearly not in the looks and hot guy department tho' :mrgreen: ), more along the lines of love of rock n roll, crazy comments and insecurities....

Must be the reason I love her books so much. :roll:
