Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds

July 28, 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish in which they select a topic every week, and the rest of us get to make Top Ten lists based on that topic. This week’s topic: Ten Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds (love reading, are writers, work at a bookstore, etc.). I absolutely love books that feature characters who love to read (or novels that have a bookish twist of some sort). This was a fun list to put together!

Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series – I love that Hermione was always doing lots of extra reading with a strong love for knowledge.

 Hazel and Augustus from The Fault in Our Stars – One of the big events of the book is when the couple travels to meet the author of a novel that they both identified with, a desire I can truly understand!

Cath (and Levi) from Fangirl – I’m currently in the middle of this audiobook, and I’m loving it. Cath is a huge fan of the Simon Snow series of novels, and Levi grows to be a fan of Cath’s fan fiction spinoffs of Simon Snow. I adore when a book can bring a couple closer together!

Jam Gallahue in Belzhar – Jam becomes friends with a close knit group during her Special Topics in English class as they read the works of Sylvia Plath.

A.J. Fikry from The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry – Actually there are so many characters that end up as bookworms in this lovely novel. I also adore the setting in a bookstore in a small seaside town.

Anna Wyatt from Girl Before a Mirror – OK, so Anna is not a huge book nerd necessarily but the novel takes place at a Romance Writer’s Convention…..how could I not include this gem on a bookish list!

Don Tillman from The Rosie Project – One of my favorite parts of this amazing summer read was all of the pop culture references (both books and movies). I thought it was so sweet the way Don used books to help him learn how to navigate various social situations.

Cheryl Strayed in Wild – This might be cheating a bit since this one is a nonfiction book, but I loved how books figured so prominently in Strayed’s journey. It’s a part of the novel I will not forget!

Catherine Warner in Bookends – I read this book eons ago, but I loved how Catherine gave up her job to pursue her dream of opening a book store!

Cornelia Brown in Love Walked In – OK, true confessions time. I read this one awhile ago as well, and I believe that Cornelia makes all sorts of bookish references throughout the novel, but I’m not totally sure. Regardless, this is a charming little novel that would make a good summer read.

Who are your favorite book nerds?
