Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic:
Ten Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds (love reading, are writers, work at a bookstore, etc.)
Tyrion from The Song of Ice & Fire series by George R.R. Martin
— an obvious choice. He’s one of my favorite literary book nerds.
Hermione from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
— another obvious one. Hermione is one of my favorite characters in the series and one of the reasons why she is is because her nose is always in a book.
Madam Pince, the librarian, from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
— She takes her job seriously.
Joe from the You series by Caroline Kepnes
— Spoiler so blink and jump to the next one if you like: This dude forces his captives to read and then gives them an exam on the book(s). That’s the height of book nerdiness.
The eccentric Prof. Lidenbrock from Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne
— if you’ve read the book, then this isn’t surprising. Otto Lidenbrock is an intelligent man, a total bibliophile, and a polyglot.
Amir from The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
— Amir loves to read and would often read to his friend and servant, Hassan.
Uncle Orma from the Seraphina series by Rachel Hartman
— Orma is a dragon who hoards books.
The entire Brown Ajah of the Wheel of Time series, but more specifically Verin Mathwin
— Verin, as well as other members of the Brown Ajah, can be easily identified by the ink stains on her nose or chin.
Oscar from The Brief and Wondorous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Díaz
— another obvious choice if you’ve read the book.
Myles from the Song of the Lioness series by Tamora Pierce
— a bibliophile and a bit of an introvert. Myles loves poring over maps.
These are all the characters I could think of. If you know of any others, drop a line below. 🙂
