Ten Eight Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds
Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review.
So, I’m pretty terrible about remembering book details after I finish the book. Something like “the main character is a big reader” would not stick with me in most cases. So, with that alert in mind, here are EIGHT (whoops) books with characters who are book nerds… as far as I can remember:
The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord… because of Quiz Bowl and Pride & Prejudice references
Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan… because of The Strand
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell… because of the comics shared on the bus
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell… because of the fanfiction and Simon Snow
Kissing in America by Margo Rabb… because of the romance novels read by the MC
Between the Pages by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer… because of the fairy tale
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon… because she has nothing to do but read all day
Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller… because she always carried a book when she moved
Good list! I read a lot of these books, but forgot about the bookishness. I didn’t even try to make my own list. My memory is pretty bad.
I’m surprised mine came up with 8!
I haven’t read my copy of Everything, Everything yet but that makes perfect sense! And Cath made my list, though I didn’t even think of Eleanor. I guess I liken her to music loving? Maybe I need to reread that book.
I just think of her and Park bonding over the comics too! So cute. Everything, Everything was wonderful
A million times yes to Kissing in America! I loved that part of the story! 🙂
Awesome list. Cath from Fangirl made my list as well. I had completely forgotten about the comics in Eleanor and Park. I love that one!
So good, right?!
I love that you mentioned The Start of Me and You in this post! I think it definitely applies 😉 I also feel that way about Where the Stars Still Shine – and now I’m itching to reread that book.
Haha I think so toooo
