Top 10 Tuesday: 10 Fellow Book Nerds

Hey bloggers and readers alike!! So it's Tuesday and that definitely means another Top 10 Tuesday is upon this. If you don't know Top 10 Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish . This weeks theme was to choose 10 characters that love books just as much as we do. So without further delay here are my top 10 choices!

1. If there ever was a book character that loved books, it hands down would have to be Hermione Granger from the infamous Harry Potter series. Hermione could be found using books as her means of getting herself, Ron, and Harry out of trouble in every single book. Her book knowledge allowed her to excel beyond all the other students in her year making her one of the brightest students to ever grace the doors of Hogwarts. When it came to the three characters she truly was the "brains" behind the operation.

2. Another one of my favorite book obsessed "bookish" characters would be Klaus Baudelaire from The Series of Unfortunate Events. This kid loved reading so much that he would literary spend hours of his day in his parents library reading as much as he could. Of course, this reading would eventually assist the children in getting out of a lot of trouble with Count Olaf.

3. One of the cutest and most adorable book-obsessed characters would definitely have to Matilda. In both the book and the movie, Matilda finds comfort and solace in reading books when growing up in a family that didn't care about her as much as they should have.

4. Although this may seem like a stretch for some people since Hazel Grace was only obsessed with one book, she truly is one of my favorite characters that loves books. Her passion for An Imperial Affliction is what guides the book and sets the tone for a lot of themes that make TFIOS so wonderful.

5. I just love appreciating how bad ass of a character Celaena is to begin with, but then on top of that she loves to read!! Like it really doesn't get much better than a female assassin that loves to cozy up with a good book.

6. Charlie from The Perks of Being a Wallflower demonstrates his love of reading and writing to the point that his English teacher assigns him extracurricular book reports as a way to mentor him and assist him in growing as a writer.

7. The wonderful Katy Swartz from the Lux Series loves reading. It's a comfort area for her and guess what?!? She blogs too! I fell in love as soon as I figured that out.

8. I could go on and on and on about Ms. Chase, but I'll her love of book and knowledge speak for itself.

9. Ms. Elizabeth Bennet can be remembered as being chastised by Ms. Bingley for her chose to read books instead of play cards with the rest of the party while waiting for her sister to recover from her illness. She also uses reading to her advantage to chide Mr. Darcy...ahhh the level of despising someone then growing to love them is just beautiful in this book.

10. This list would not be complete without Ms. Scout Finch from TKAM, a loud, boisterous, and outgoing tomboy who is so very well remembered for not only her understanding of race relations in the American South, but also her intelligence and most importantly love for reading. 

What are your favorite books with characters who are book nerds?!? Leave your comments below. :)

  1. Nice list! Hermione, Matilda, and ATTICUS Finch are on my list today as well. The first two especially are pretty much the ultimate in fictional bookworms.

    Happy TTT!
