July 28: Characters Who are Fellow Book Nerds

Oooooh I love this topic! When I’m reading a book and find a character that loves books, they become like 10x better. You will probably see a lot of the same answers today, but that’s because these characters are the best 😉

Fangirl     Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)     Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices, #2)

1. Cath from Fangirl: This girl is absolutely obsessed with books! She loves the Simon Snow series and even writes fanficition. I mean the book’s name is even Fangirl.

2. Celaena and Dorian from Throne of Glass: These two are constantly reading in the books. Celaena read anything and everything and Dorian’s room has book stacks everywhere.

3. Will and Tessa from The Infernal Devices: These two connected over books and reading, and it really started their relationship together.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)     The Mark of Athena (The Heroes of Olympus, #3)     The Book Thief

4. Hermione from the Harry Potter series: The ultimate book-worm. Hermione always has her nose in a book. When packing her magic bag in The Deathly Hallows, she had 19 books with her!

5. Annabeth Chase from the Percy Jackson series: She had dyslexia and still read more than characters that could read just fine. Being a daughter of Athena, she always wanted to know more.

6. Liesel from The Book Thief: I never got to finish this book (oops), but Liesel obviously loved books since she was stealing them!

The Fault in Our Stars     Matilda     To Kill a Mockingbird

7. Hazel from TFIOS: Hazel just read Imperial Affliction over and over. She even contacted the author (who turns out to be a jerk) several times because she loved it so much.

8. Matilda: This little girl had some serious reading skills. She was going to the library and reading on her own at such a young age, it was crazy!

9. Scout from To Kill a Mockingbird: Atticus always read to Scout, so she knew how to read before even entering school (much to the annoyance of her teacher).

Rory Gilmore from Gilmore Girls: Rory always has a book in her hand and is always striking up conversations about them.

Brick Heck from The Middle: Brick is probably my favorite character ever. He loves reading (Books, instruction manuals, signs) and has a obession with fonts. The time Axl spoils a book for him is the most accurate episode ever!

  1. I love these books. You should finish The Book Thief! It’s so good! I love when authors make characters love books as well . . . it is such a smart writing choice because it helps ensure that the reader will connect 🙂
