Top Ten Tuesday: Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds

This week's Top Ten Tuesday focuses on characters who are fellow book nerds.  Here are my favorites: 


1.  Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery - Anne is my all-time favorite bookworm and will probably always be.  If you have read the novels, you know her love for books is hard-core.




2.  Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen - I also really love Elizabeth Bennet. She can always be found with her nose in a good book. She's a smart protagonist with opinions and I like that!




3.  Hermione Granger from Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling - I dressed up as Hermione one year for Halloween...that's how much I love her!  She's the quintessential bookworm. 




4.  Jo March from Little Women by Louisa May Alcott - Jo is an aspiring writer, so her love of books knows no bounds. 




5.  Paige Hancock from The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord - Paige is one of my "new" favorite characters. I found her easy to relate to. She likes books (makes a ton of literary references!), TV, and is a loyal friend.




6.  Francie Nolan from A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith - Some of my favorite quotes about reading come from this book.  Betty Smith knows what's up.  




7.  Belle from Beauty and The Beast by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont - Ok, so this is probably cheating since in my mind I am referring to Belle from the Disney movie, but how could I not include her? She dances and sings in bookstores! Truly a girl after my own heart.




8.  Matilda Wormwood from Matilda by Roald Dahl - I remember when I read this many, many years ago, I LOVED Matilda. Her to-be-read pile is just as big as mine! 




9.  Lara Jean Song from To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han - Jenny Han created a memorable character for me. She's a bit of a homebody and would rather hangout with her sisters than go gallivanting throughout the town. She likes books and writing, so she gets a spot on my list.




10.  Scout Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee - Scout is one of my favorite literary characters ever. In fact, I named my dog after Scout! I love that she asks the tough questions.

  1. Fantastic list! I was struggling to come up with enough characters to participate and finally decided not to :(

    You've reminded me of some I'd forgotten like Anne Shirley and Matilda. I love that you included Belle! One of my favorite bookworms is Liesl Meminger from The Book Thief.

  2. Great list!! I included Hermione on my list as well. I'm sure she will be a popular choice this week. Some of these other books I read so long ago that I honestly don't remember much about them. It is probably time for a reread.
