Top 10 Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in 2010. It’s a fun way for bloggers all over the Internet to connect and post the things they love about books. This week is all about our favorite bookworms featured in books!
1. Hermione Granger – Harry Potter
Is this list even complete without the number one bookworm that stole our hearts? Known for her love of the library and all things book related, I can’t help but put Hermione as number one o my list.
2. Caleb Prior – Divergent
I think I still adore his love of books and knowledge because it was a secret love for so long. I love that he craved knowledge and reading so much that he went against everything to do it.
3. Matilda -Matilda
I couldn’t help but connect with the character “Matilda”. Loving books at such a young age is what has saved me from so many things in my adult life.
4. Willow -Willow
“Willow” is about a girl who had professors as parents (they died in a car crash). She loves books and uses them as an escape from her life. She talks about her favorite little bookstore and the random books she loves that no one else has heard of, and it makes me want to be more like that — like the girl who spends all her time in bookstores reading obscure books.
5. Ponyboy Curtis -The Outsiders
Despite his upbringing Ponyboy loves reading, and I love that. There’s something about a kid who deviates from the norm that brings me hope.
6. Belle – Beauty and the Beast
Let’s call it a fairy tale, but Belle is still one of my favorite princesses and readers. The scene in the movie where she glides around the library on a sliding ladder is still one of my favorites and it’s my dream to have a library like that one of these days.
7. Rory Gilmore – Gilmore Girls
Technically not a book, but an amazing television series. Although she’s not a book character, I would like to point out that Rory is a role model for all girls to follow your dreams and enjoy a good book or two while you’re at it.
8. Scout Finch – To Kill a Mockingbird
“To Kill a Mockingbird” is still one of my favorite books and Scout is such a lovable character with curious mind.
9. Mr. Penumbra – Mr. Penumbra’s 24-hour Bookstore
One of the more interesting adults featured in a book, I love Mr. Penumbra and his love of all things connected with knowledge.
10. Meggie Folchart – Inkheart
I have to admit, I haven’t read this in awhile, but I loved this book. I found the tale to be interesting and the characters to be endearing. It’s all about a man who gets trapped in a book and his daughter’s quest to find out what’s going on.
