Ten Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list are the Top Ten characters who are fellow book nerds. I love this topic! I love a bookworm, but I have found it a bit tricky to think about who to include! Has anyone else had this problem?!

Book images go to Goodreads

Matilda- Roald Dahl

Matilda

Matilda is the ultimate bookworm. I absolutely love her and think she’s such a great character for children!

Celaena-Throne of Glass

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)

I love that Celaena is kick ass and a bookworm! 😀

Jo March- Little Women

Little Women (Little Women, #1)

Jo was one of the first bookworms that I read about. I loved how much she enjoyed books and writing stories.

Cath- Fangirl

Fangirl

Cath is a fantastic, relatable character. I adored her!

Liesel- The Book Thief

The Book Thief

Of course, Liesel has to be mentioned in a list like this. Liesel has a great love for books!

Hermione- Harry Potter

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)

Hermione is one of the ultimate bookworms. I love how into her books she is and how powerful they are to her.

Juliette- Shatter Me

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)

Juliette isn’t the most obvious choice, as when I think of her I think of her strength, but she is a book lover for escapism!

Hazel/Gus- The Fault In Our Stars

The Fault in Our StarsJohn Green doesn’t frequently feature in my Top Ten lists, but there’s no denying that Hazel and Gus are wonderfully bookish.

Isla- Isla And The Happily Ever After

Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss, #3)It took me a while to think about adding Isla, but when I thought about it, Isla really likes reading about adventures rather than taking part in adventures. She’s shy and unassuming. A character that’s easy to relate to.

Anne- Anne of Green Gables

Anne of Green Gables (Anne of Green Gables, #1)

Another wonderful bookish character. I think it’s lovely that book nerds are represented in children’s literature!

Top Ten Favourite Heroines From Books

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list are our Top Ten Favourite Heroines From Books.

(Book images go to Goodreads!)

Jo March- Little Women –

Little Women (Little Women, #1)

She doesn’t conform to the ‘usual’ female roles. One of my favourite characters in literature!

Strong in every possible way!

Tris- Divergent-

Divergent (Divergent, #1)

Definitely her own person. Very headstrong.

Matilda

She faces awful parents and a terrible headteacher. I love the little bookworm that is Matilda!

Skeeter, Aibileen and Minny- The Help

The Help

I absolutely love these ladies from The Help. I especially admire Skeeter for trying to make a difference.

Juliette- Shatter Me trilogy

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)

Juliette’s strength as a person grows so much throughout the series!

*New additions*

Celaena Sardothien- Throne Of Glass-

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)

She’s a kick ass book loving character!

June- Legend-

Legend (Legend, #1)

A fiesty and intelligent character!

Poppy Sinclair- Dead Jealous/Dead Silent-

Dead Jealous (Poppy Sinclair, #1)

Likeable and real!

Rowan- Me Since You

Me Since You

A heroine in different ways to others in this list. Strong despite terrible things happening to her.
