What a fun topic over @ RRT this week. I always enjoy seeing characters who are book nerds. Here are a few of my favorites…
In Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict and Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Viera Rigler, Courtney Stone has a love of Jane Austen’s works. She awakens to find herself in Austen’s world in these fun, time travel themed books.
Hazel and Gus swap books in The Fault in Our Stars and one of the main plot lines is Hazel finding her favorite author so that he can tell her how her favorite book ends.
Paul Sheldon and Annie Wilkes are both bookish in Stephen King’s Misery. Paul is a bestselling writer. Unfortunately for him, he meets his biggest fan, who happens to be a book loving psychopath.
King has said Misery is his love letter to his fans. This is my 1987 vintage hardcover copy that I paid about $1.00 for at a library sale.
Jo March in Little Women by Louisa May Alcott is a bookworm. She loves to read and wants to become a writer and even writes plays for her sisters to perform.
Tiffany Reisz’s Original Sinners series centers around erotic writer Nora Sutherlin. As the series goes, Nora continues to writer her steamy stories.
In Message in a Bottle by Nicholas Sparks, Theresa Osborne is a columnist. When she stumbles on a message in a bottle on the beach, she publishes it in her column and it leads her to the love of her life. Thank you Nicholas Sparks.
Jack Torrance from The Shining by Stephen King. King tends to write main characters who are writers like himself and Jack Torrance, new overseer at the Overlook Hotel is one of the scariest. That moment when his wife Wendy finds his manuscript is just plain chilling.
I read the first in the Inkheart series by Cornelia Funke many years ago when I first began book blogging. This fun start to a young adult adventure series centers around Meggie and her dad, who are both bookish and the storyline centers around books as well.
Last but not least, Rebecca Raisin writes a fun book related series. In The Bookshop on the Corner (Once in a Lifetime: The Gingerbread Cafe, Book 2.5) is a novella revolving around bookshop owner Sarah Smith. This is part of a three part series, I’ve got the other two on my TBR mountain already.
That’s my list of Top Ten Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds. Who is on your list?
Hope you are enjoying your summer! I’ve just gotten back from my vacation and will slowly but surely get to blog hopping this week. I want to see what everyone is up to.
