Top Ten Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme started over at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they have a specific topic for a top ten list. Link up, visit some new blogs and add to your ever growing TBR list! This week's topic is:

Top Ten Characters Who Are Fellow Books Nerds
They love to read, are writers, work in bookstores, etc

Harry Potter Fangirl The Wolves of Mercy Falls The Book Thief Matilda

  • Hermione from the Harry Potter series - Of course Hermione tops my list. She's the greatest book nerd ever!
  • Cath from Fangirl - I think most of us can see a bit of ourselves in Cath. She adores the Simon Snow series and is a talented writer.
  • Sam from The Wolves of Mercy Falls series - Oh, Sam. He was actually one of the first book nerds I thought of. He makes me want to read more poetry. And it's been a while, but I think he worked in a bookstore?
  • Liesel from The Book Thief - Liesel's love of books and stories is inspiring.
  • Matilda from Roald Dahl's Matilda - There cannot be a list of book nerds that does not include Matilda, right?

Magonia The Babysitter's Club Pride & Prejudice Kissing in America Lux

  • Aza & Jason from Magonia - These two are very well read and so full of knowledge. Reading Magonia I came to the conclusion that I need to read so much more.
  • Mary Anne from The Babysitter's Club - This is going a long ways back in my memory, but I'm pretty sure Mary Anne is a book nerd? Stacey was always my fave because of her love of fashion but if I were to reread this series now, it'd likely be Mary Anne. Well, all of the Babysitter's are awesome, right?
  • Elizabeth Bennett from Pride & Prejudice - I'm still waiting for my Mr Darcy to come along and spy me reading...
  • Eva from Kissing in America - Eva sprang to mind for her love of romance novels. That was me in high school...okay, and today, still. Romance forever!
  • Katy from the Lux series - I'm including Katy because I adored her in Obsidian, with her love of reading and her being a book blogger. Granted, I'm not the biggest of her fans anymore, but she still rocks as a book nerd. 

So which fictional book nerds made your list? Let me know so I can read about any I haven't been introduced to yet!

  1. Other than the three we have in common (Hermione, Liesel and Matilda) I haven't read any of these yet. However, I do have copies of both Fangirl and Pride & Prejudice.

    Thanks for visiting me!

    1. Hermione, Liesel & Matilda are definitely some of the popular book nerds this week. Not surprising, they're quite iconic for their love of books! I hope you enjoy Fangirl and Pride & Prejudice when you read them. Thanks, Lauren. :-D

  2. Woo we got a few of the same characters :) I thought Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones was worth a mention but I don't know if you've read that.. Great list :D

    Here’s my list if you want to have a look :)

    1. Thanks, Laura! I was surprised to see Tyrion on a few lists, I wasn't aware he was a book nerd! I haven't read GoT - I tried, but just couldn't get into it. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Cath and Katy are on my list as well! I haven't read any of the others but Magonia and Kissing in America are on my TBR :D

    1. I loved, loved, loved Magonia and enjoyed Kissing in America. It wasn't quite what I'd hoped for, but it had its moments. I hope you enjoy them both! Thanks for stopping by, Christy. :-D

  4. I completely agree! A bookish list without Matilda just seems wrong :-) Thank you for stopping by my blog earlier.

  5. Hermione! I love her and I love that she's on so many list today! It's a great thing and she's my favorite book nerd ever! Liesel is another good one, I love that she steals books. We have a fair few in common. :D Great list!

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT.

    1. I agree Alex, it was awesome seeing so many lists including characters I love. :-D Liesel is fierce! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  6. I completely forgot about Obsidian! Probably because I also kind of fell out of love with that series. Great list!

    1. Yeah, I almost didn't include Katy because it felt weird putting her on a list when I'm not so interested in the series anymore, lol. But she certainly is a book nerd, and being a book blogger too sealed it for me. ;-) Thanks, Megz!

  7. It's been AGES since I read the series--but I remember adoring Katy when I read the Obsidian series. Because a) she's a reader, and b) A BOOK BLOGGER. I mean, how often do you see THAT in fiction!? I completely forgot about her though when writing my list.

    1. Exactly! It's not just that she's a bookworm but that she's a blogger! It's awesome! :-D We definitely need more books about book bloggers. ;-) Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Lizzie Bennet! Love seeing her on any of these lists. She is an amazing character - and what a cute caption you included. Waiting for Mr. Darcy... love that. :)

    Thanks so much for visiting Dreaming Under the Same Moon. Appreciate it. :)

    1. I couldn't leave Lizzie off such a list, she's just too great a character. :-D And thanks, haha! I couldn't resist the Mr. Darcy bit. ;-) Thanks for stopping by, Rissi.

  9. YES! Katy is the ultimate bookworm! She's just so fun and her love of books and blogging is really contagious :D

    1. I was wracking my brain for characters and trying to think of some from way back, that might not be on as many lists, when I remembered Mary Anne. :-) Thanks, KayCee!

  11. How could I miss Pride and Prejudice on my list?
    I followed you! :)

    1. I felt that way about a few other characters too. There's certainly more book nerds in fiction than I initially realised! ;-) Thanks for following, Ilina.

  12. OMG YES to Mary Anne! I was just thinking about her when I read a children's book on someone else's list- I should have added her, but I LOVE that you did!! Totally forgot about Aza and Jason too! Fabulous list!
