TOP TEN TUESDAY
Hosted by: The Broke and Bookish
Sorry everyone, I have been on a not purposeful hiatus this last week. My son had an illness that kept me from doing much of anything. Ah, the joys of parenthood I tell you. Well, it’s not Tuesday but I think that the best thing to do would to jump right back into Top Ten Tuesdays that are hosted by The Broke and Bookish.
This week’s prompt is to list 10 fellow bookworms that happen to be from books. So without further ado, here goes:
1. Hermione Granger (Harry Potter Series by J.K Rowling): I know that everyone has put Hermione and quite simply she is the easiest. But the reason that I put her there was because when the Harry Potter books where coming out I was in the 4th grade and loved to read. Hermione was one of the first bookworm-ish characters that I read about and she will always have a place in my heart because of it!
2.Elizabeth Bennett (Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen): If I ever was to have a role model Elizabeth would have been it. Surrounded by scorn, either by her mother because she won’t marry the first person that comes along or some of the rich family that comes to their town Elizabeth handles it all in stride. She picks up her book and just drowns out all the negativity. Love it!
3. Anne Shirley(Anne of Green Gables Series by L.M Montgomery): Again, this is a bookworm that I grew up reading and felt such a connection to. She had a fiery temper and ended up marrying the love of her life, all things that I can relate to even now.
4. Matilda Wormwood(Matilda by Roald Dahl): This again is one of my favorite books as a child. Matilda grew up in a family that didn’t understand why she liked to read. Instead of letting her families opinions change her she fought back! You go girl!
5. Jess Brightwell (Ink and Bone by Rachael Caine): The main protagonist in the book loves books. The kicker though is that he lives in a world where owning physical copies of books is illegal. I’m not going to go into much detail because it will spoil the book for those who haven’t read it yet, but I can say Jess and his world put a whole new spin on what it means to be a bookworm.
6. Diana Bishop (All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness) : This is one of my more favorite series. Diana, the main character, builds a life around books. She travels half way around the world because she fell in love with a library! Now that’s what I call serious bookworm dedication!
7. Tyrion Lannister (A Game of Thrones Series by George R.R Martin): Out of all the characters in this massive series that I have loved it is Tyrion. He is not only witty, drunk, a dwarf, but also the most well-read character in the book. He would rather read a book than deal with people who obviously don’t want him around. I can completely relate to this feeling.
8 Cath Avery (Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell): Now, I don’t usually read contemporaries but there is something about the description of Cath and her life that just drew me in. She is a bookworm that took her love of books and turned it into an art.
9. Meggie Folchart (Inkheart by Cornelia Funke): Oh man, this story! I loved this story as a kid and I loved the whole concept of it and the magic that was involved. Sadly, I never finished the series but Inkheart and Meggie will always have a place in my heart.
