Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature from The Broke and The Bookish, that gives us a weekly book related topic, to write a top ten list on.This weeks topic is top characters who are fellow book nerds. This includes character who love reading, are writers or work at a bookstore etc.
My list mainly involves young adult books, so I’m sorry if you’re not a fan of YA.
To kick it off…
- Violet from All The Bright Places, by Jennifer Niven – I have only just started this book, but it is already apparent that Violet is a writer. She shared a blog with her older sister, Eleanor, but after the car accident, she hasn’t written since. I’m really enjoying this book and hope that she gets back into writing. No spoilers though, please!
- Cath from Fangirl, by Rainbow Rowell – Cath writes fanfiction and is an ultimate fangirl over a series that sounds a lot like Harry Potter. Super relatable. This had to make my list.
- Penny from Girl Online, by Zoe Sugg – Penny is a famous blogger, like I hope to be one day. Haha. It never really says that she loves to write, but you can tell that writing helps her to vent. If you want to check out my review, you can do so here.
- Ellie from Tomorrow When The War Began, by John Marsden – The narrator of the story, Ellie is chosen by her friends, to write their story and experiences in the war so far. It isn’t said that she loves writing, but she is the best writer in the group and as the series continues you can tell that she uses it as a kind of escape. Chris, one of the other characters is also a good writer. You can read my review of this book here, if you like.
- Adam from If I Stay and Where She Went, by Gayle Forman – Adam is a songwriter and musician, which I think counts. I really wanted to add this because, especially in Where She Went, you get a taste of his lyrics at the start of every chapter. I have reviewed these books here.
- Joel from Joel and Cat Set The Story Straight, by Nick Earls – I don’t know that Joel really loves writing, but he seems to be very passionate, when Cat doesn’t do it properly in their tandem story writing assignment. I haven’t finished the book yet, so I don’t know the whole story, yet, but they are both in Extension English.
- Cat from Joel and Cat Set The Story Straight, by Nick Earls – see above.
- Noah from The Notebook, by Nicholas Sparks – From memory (It’s been a while since I read this) Noah loved reading poetry. He never could write poetry, but he loved to read it. I am also pretty sure that this book is the only one on this list that is not YA.
- Mia from Princess Diaries, by Meg Cabot – It takes Mia most of the series to realise that she is a writer, but you most certainly are a writer when you write in your diary in almost every class.
- Charlie from The Perks of Being a Wallflower – I see Charlie as a bit of a book nerd. He is constantly given new books to read by one of his teachers. He is extremely intelligent, but socially awkward. He loves all of the books that he reads and each new book that he reads becomes his new favourite.
Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them? What would you add to the list?
Thank you for your reading!
