Top Ten Tuesday: Fellow Book Nerds

It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! This week it’s the top ten characters who are fellow book nerds – a great topic as a proud bookworm and a former librarian! All book covers from Goodreads.

Top Ten Fellow Book Nerds

1. Ryter from The Last Book in the Universe by Rodman Philbrick

The Last Book in the Universe

It takes a certain amount of courage to continue writing in a world where everyone is plugged into a virtual reality.

2. Henry from The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

He’s a librarian! I tend to be fairly picky when it come to romance, but I surprisingly loved this book.

3. Scheherazade from The Arabian Nights

I hope I have enough imagination to come up with one thousand and one stories.

4. Clay from Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan

I wish I could work for this bookstore!

5. Alberto from The Infinite Library by Kane X. Faucher

infinite-library

Hired to work for the eponymous infinite library. Kind of reminds me of a more serious and philosophical version of Mr. Penumbra.

6. Granger from Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Imagine memorizing entire books to carry on the legacy of literature in a world where books are banned!

7. Jack from The Shining by Stephen King

If you’re a writer, don’t a become caretaker for strange hotels. It won’t end well.

8. Esther from The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

bell-jar

A semi-autobiographical writer from one of my favorite books.

9. Virginia Woolf from The Hours by Michael Cunningham

hours

I haven’t yet had a chance to read the book, but I thought the movie adaptation was superb.

10. Mikael from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

A journalist. I’m still working my way through the book, but I loved the Swedish miniseries.

      I had a surprisingly difficult time thinking up these characters! I had to go through my goodreads shelves since most of them didn’t immediately spring to mind when brainstorming items for this list. Thanks for stopping by!

      Thanks! I know, this list took me some time to come up with. I included the fourth book in the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series during the “most anticipated books of 2015” topic. I wonder how different/similar it will be from the other ones since the fourth is written by a different author.
