Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Today’s theme was:
Ten Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds (love reading, are writers, work at a bookstore, etc.)
I couldn’t come up with a list of ten bookish characters, so instead, I have a list of six characters and a quote that describes their bookishness.
Celaena Sardothien, Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas
“Libraries were full of ideas–perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons.”
Charlie, The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
“It’s strange because sometimes, I read a book, and I think I am the people in the book.”
Liesel, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
“When she came to write her story, she would wonder when the books and the words started to mean not just something, but everything.”
Hermione Granger, Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
“I’ve learned all of our course books by heart, of course, I just hope it will be enough – I’m Hermione Granger, by the way, who are you?”
Matilda, Matilda by Roald Dahl
“These books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone.”
Skeeter, The Help by Kathryn Stockett
“I always order the banned books from a black market dealer in California, figuring if the State of Mississippi banned them, they must be good.”
