Top Ten Tuesday #28

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish which features a variety of bookish top ten lists!

Top Ten Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds (love reading, are writers, work at a bookstore, etc.) 

Jasnah (The Stormlight Archive) - Jasnah is a educated and well-read woman who lives for reading and research.   Her topics of interest are usually controversial, but she doesn't let that deter her from her quest for knowledge. A woman after my own heart!

Hermione (Harry Potter) - Could this list even exist without Hermione?! She's the ultimate book nerd and she reads books like regular people breathe air. She's a kindred spirit of mine as I know she is for most of you guys too.

Celaena (Throne of Glass) - An assassin who loves to read (and loves fashion), Celaena is a girl after my own heart. I knew I would love her to pieces the moment that she professed her love of books and I'm such a fan of how she treasures her favorite reads. 

Sokka (Avatar: The Last Airbender) - Granted, this wasn't a book series at first, but there are tons of books moving ahead with the story now. One of the best things about Sokka is how he reminded me of Hermione at times...i.e: he wanted to have a vacation at a library :D

Gandalf (Lord of the Rings) - I love picturing Gandalf when he heads out to research the one ring, going over book after book. The old wizard doesn't shy away from giant old tomes and that makes me happy.

Barrons (The Fever Series) - This dreamy bad boy OWNS his own BOOKSTORE. Yeah. Hello? This is easily my dream come true. Can I come and work for you sir? Pleeeease!!

Dumbledore (Harry Potter) - We all know that Dumbledore was a HUGE nerd at Hogwarts and that as a wise old man, he kept tons of books in his office. What I wouldn't give to be able to check out his collection

Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables) - Speaking of kindred spirits. Anne loved stories, reading, was a hopeless romantic and had an imagination to rival almost anyone's. Growing up, I felt like this was a girl who understood me.

John Watson (Sherlock Holmes) - This guy is always writing about Sherlock's adventures. How can you not love a guy like that? I especially like that in the BBC Series, they made him into a blogger XD

Cath (Fangirl) - Soooo Cath obsesses over a book series, and then proceeds to write rocking fanfiction about said series. Yeah, this girl is a soulmate to all of us

Did I forget anyone important? Let me know!


  1. Cath and Hermione are on mine too! (I mean there's no way Hermione wouldn't be on my list sooo..) ;) Gandalf is a good choice. I didn't put him on my list, but he's definitely a reader, scouring books for the information he needs. When people to to books for information, they are book nerds! Awesome list!

  2. I have Jasnah, Hermione & Celaena on my list too. Gandalf, Dumbledore & Watson are great shouts too! Fab list.

  3. I've got Holmes on my list rather than Watson. I've also got Anne and Hermione. I forgot about Gandalf.

  4. Oh yeah, I totally forgot that Jasnah was quite the reader :3 I chose a different Brandon Sanderson character for this week's list (and LOTR character) ;) Great list!

    My TTT

  5. Great list, Micheline, John Watson's such an original choice! :) Of course Hermione made my list, too, and I love that you mentioned Sokka. Clearly I need to check out The Stormlight Archive, because Jasnah sounds great!

  6. Great list! Hermione , Cath and Celaena made it to mine. You can check out my list if you'd like to! http://rambling-reads.blogspot.ie/2015/07/top-ten-characters-that-are-also-book.html
    Have a good day!

  7. Yay for Hermione and Celaena! I included them, too. I still haven't read Fangirl yet. Great choices! Very creative list!

    Michelle @ Michelle's Minions

    My TTT

  8. Anne and Hermione are both on my list, but I totally forgot about Cath. Duh! She's a huge book nerd and a writer. Glad other people remembered her :)

    Happy TTT!

  9. I always love when a character is also an avid reader or a book blogger!

    Mands @ The Bookish Manicurist

  10. I can't believe that I forgot about Gandalf and Dumbledore! I did have Calaena on my list though. Great list!
    Krystianna @ Downright Dystopian

  11. I (finally, lol!) started watching Avatar: The Last Airbender and am currently OBSESSED with it- I couldn't agree about Sokka more! I just saw the episode with the library in the desert, and Sokka was truly in heaven there. :D And, of course, there's our Hermione; she is totally a character who takes after my own bookish heart!

  12. I am SO BEHIND commenting on all your wonderful posts, I can't even believe it...
    Um yeah, Gandalf and Dumbledore are cool picks! I forgot about the great wizards, of course they have to be book nerds, otherwise they wouldn't be great! :)
    Anne has popped up on a couple of lists this week and I completely forgot about her :( I only read the (first) book when I was 23, I think, so I didn't know it growing up, but I enjoyed it a lot.

  13. Gandalf is a great person to put on the list. I would also like to throw in Bilbo - he WROTE a book! Wonderful list! I have seen some people on here that I haven't seen on other lists!
