Top Ten Fellow Book Nerds

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week we're looking at some characters that I can easily relate to: fellow readers and lovers of books. And what's better than allowing a bookworm to explain their own love of books?

A.J. Fikry
You know everything you need to know about a person from the answer to the question, What is your favorite book?

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin

They went out every day upon parties of pleasure, balls, plays, concerts. &c. and laughed at their youngest sister, because she spent the greatest part of her time in reading good books.

―"Beauty and the Beast" in The Classic Fairy Tales by Iona & Peter Opie

Catherine Morland
"Oh, I am delighted with the book! I should like to spend my whole life in reading it, I assure you."
Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen

Celaena Sardothien
"I can survive well enough on my own -- if given the proper reading material."
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Hazel Grace Lancaster
Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Hermione Granger
“I’ve learned all the course books by heart of course. I just hope it will be enough – I’m Hermione Granger, by the way, who are you?" 

Jo March
The dim, dusty room, with the busts staring down from the tall bookcases, the cozy chairs, the globes, and best of all, the wilderness of books in which she could wander where she liked, made the library a region of bliss to her.
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

Klaus Baudelaire
When you read as many books as Klaus Baudelaire, you are going to learn a great deal of information that might not become useful for a long time.
The Hostile Hospital by Lemony Snicket

Tessa Gray
"One must always be careful of books," said Tessa, "and what is inside of them, for words have the power to change us."
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

And there you have it: ten nine of my favorite bookworms, as well as some of their best quotes.

Amanda loves few things better than sitting down with a cup of tea and a book. She frequently stays up far too late, telling herself she just needs to finish one more page. When she's not wrapped up in the stories of others, Amanda works as a children's librarian in a public library.


  1. Oh I love seeing the bookworms we have in common (Celaena and Jo March) and you've totally reminded me of a few I'd forgotten - Catherine Morland, Hermione (can't believe I didn't think of her!) and Tessa Gray. And I loved reading the quotes you highlighted, especially because I did the same thing in my post! :)

  2. Love this list, Amanda! You definitely thought of some that didn't immediately leap to my mind and I love that. I'd also add the protagonist from Fangirl on here--not sure if you've read that one by Rainbow Rowell--since she's yet another avid bookworm (and fangirl). Fantastic post, dear!(:

  3. Oh I loved this. I never would have thought of many of these, although there are many of these I've not yet read. Will definitely have to just to celebrate bookworms. :) Great post!

  4. Aww, nice :) I can't believe I missed this post originally. These characters, fellow book-lovers - I can't help but hold them so dear!!
