Top Ten (#7) Book-Loving Characters
The Broke and the Bookish.
I have not read a whole lot of books that features book nerds like me but I think this is a pretty decent list. Also, note that some characters are loosely interpreted by me as book nerds.
1. Liesel Meminger || The Book Thief
Nothing screams book nerd/lover as a book thief. At a young age, Liesel knew that books/words can be powerful.
Hermione would probably the model for book nerds. I mean, she's not a "nerd" per se but a very smart. book-loving, character.
Pardon my laziness, it should be A Song of Fire and Ice but I've put Game of Thrones and I'm too lazy to re-edit it. Back to Tyrion, he's also smart and books are his solace (I guess?). Also, he could read books bigger than him (in the TV series, at least), so there's that. As to why he reads so much, "A mind needs books like a sword needs a whetstone."
4. Hazel Grace || The Fault in Our Stars
She grew closer with Augustus Waters because of their shared love for books. And she used her (Augustus') precious wish to meet an author.
5. Isla || Isla and the Happily Ever After
6. Cathy || Fangirl
A girl who wrote fanfiction because of her love for a book character, where have I heard of that before? Oh yeah right! From a lot of book nerds, duh.
7. Rachel || Devoted
One of the reasons why she was ostracized (aside from the obvious, of course) from her family is because she read a book. She read a book. How is that a crime? And through out the book, Rachel flew through Lauren's (and Matt's) book shelf.
8/9. Tessa & Will || The Infernal Devices trilogy
Only the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry.
Sometimes, when I have to do something I don't want to do, I pretend I'm a character from a book. It's easier to know what they would do. I'm not even going to explain this.
10. Dash || Dash & Lily's Book of Dares
Dash would probably the book-loving character that I could relate to. I bet he'd pee his pants if he went to dictionary shop, specifically shops that has Oxford Expanded Dictionary. Additionally, he also "met" Lily via the book from a library.
So that's it. Who are in your list for characters that's book nerds?
