Characters Who Are Booknerds | Top 10 Tuesday [4]


Hey guys!

Welcome back to another Top 10 Tuesday weekly fun on my blog! Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. If you want to join in the fun, hop on over to their blog to see what it’s all about!

This week’s topic is Characters Who Are Booknerds. I wasn’t always a big booknerd like I am now. I only really got into reading books avidly last year. Before then I would just read a book whenever I went on vacation, or only on the weekends, only amounting to a few books a year. But since being introduced to the Book Blogging/Booktuber community, you can never find me without a book. If I don’t have a physical book with me, I have my tablet with my e-books on it. I always thought being a booknerd was lame, but now I can’t get enough books.

So without further ado, here is my list:

10. Park from Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Eleanor and ParkIf you’ve read Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell, then you know how big of a comic book/graphic novel nerd Park is. There are all types of different booknerds, and as a avid comic book reader myself, I do believe it belongs in this topic!

9. Julian from Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Red QueenEven though Julian is a side character, he plays a big part in Mare’s time becoming a silver. He is the only one that truly appreciates books and book learning in the story. While everyone is all about their powers and strengths, he relies on information and education!

8. Hazel from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

11870085For obvious reasons I have included Hazel in this list because if you’ve read The Fault in Our Stars then you know her favorite book plays a huge part in the storyline. Without it, we miss out on so many good scenes from the story.

7. Spencer or Aria from Pretty Little Liars by Sara Sheperd

Pretty Little LiarsIt’s been a really long time since the last time I read this book, but I’m pretty sure Spencer was the academic book nerd, or was it Aria? Maybe Spencer was the academic know it all and Aria was the actually booknerd who just truly loves reading? Correct me if I’m wrong!

6. Alexia from Soulless by Gail Carriger

SoullessIt’s stated many times in the book that Alexia finds the most comfort when she is in the library. She also happens to be a very well read Lady in her era where many of the women are solely focused on getting married and fashion trends.

5. Hermoine from Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's StoneDo I even have to explain this one? Anyone who is anyone on this planet knows how much of a bookworm Hermoine is. Whether you’ve read the series or watched the movies you know this. Always getting good grades, lecturing Harry and Ron about school habits, and always the first to suggest doing research in the library’s restricted section!

4. Prince Dorian from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Crown of MidnightThis one and the next one go hand in hand together. Prince Dorian has numerous books in his possession, even lending Celaena some from his personal collection. It’s one of the biggest common interest that both of them have together.

3. Celaena from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Throne of GlassLike I said above Celaena also makes the list. Her love for books is widely expressed in the story as well as her love for smutty romance novels. She is a night reader like myself. Always reading well into the night right before passing out!

2. Andrew from The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley by Shaun David Hutchinson

The Five Stages of Andrew BrawleyNot only is he creating his own graphic novel in the confines of his little storage closet he calls a home, but he is also caught reading some classic literature to Rusty on his hospital bed. It was a very touching element to have them bond over after such a tragedy.

1. Becca from A Book of Spirits and Thieves

A Book of Spirits and ThievesProbably the biggest book nerd on the list! Her mom owns a cool book shop in downtown Toronto, where she spends most of her time with her face in a book or working. She even gets sucked into a book that brings her to an alternated world! Now if only that could happen to me. For real. This needs to happen now.

Well there you have it. The Top 10 Characters Who Are Booknerds. Let me know what you guys think of my list and share with me which books you’ve read that have booknerd characters in them!!

Until next time,

  1. Nice list! I put Hazel and Hermione on my Top 10 Tuesday list too.
    I read Pretty Little Liars books a long time ago, but I’ve watched the TV series recently. I’m pretty sure Spencer is the academic know it all and Aria is the true booknerd with stacks of books in her room 🙂


  2. A Book of Spirits and Thieves looks so good *envies a little*

    I love Alexia, happy to see her included! If you liked Soulless you’ll also love the Amelia Peabody series (I would say Gail Carigger was inspired by this series, as the resemblances are uncanny lol)
