Bookish Characters || Ten Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Bookish characters are always the ones I’ll love the most. They’re the ones I GET. But in saying that, this week’s post was HARD. Like, I couldn’t actually think of that many — hence why I didn’t actually get to ten this week.

1. Tyrion Lannister.

“I have a realistic grasp of my own strengths and weaknesses. My mind is my weapon. My brother has his sword, King Robert has his warhammer, and I have my mind… and a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge. That’s why I read so much, Jon Snow.” (A Game of Thrones — George R.R. Martin)


2. Hermione Granger.

“Oh, honestly, don’t you two read?” (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone — J.K Rowling)


3. Alaksa Young.

“When I look at my room, I see a girl who loves books.” (Looking For Alaska — John Green)


4. Bilbo Baggins.

“Books ought to have good endings.” (The Fellowship of the Ring — J. R.R. Tolkien)


5. Matilda.

“So Matilda’s strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea. These books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone.” (Matilda — Roald Dahl)


6. Belle.

“What I love most in the world are my books.” (Beauty and the Beast — Disney)


7. Celaena Sardothien.

“Libraries were full of ideas — perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons.”


What bookish characters made it onto your list this week? I’m sure I’ve missed a gazillion of them. Which books have you read/want to read from my list? Link me to your posts below! Also, what are your favourite bookish quotes?

  1. When I saw this topic, the person I immediately thought of was Hermione Granger. Man, I miss seeing her kiddy version nose-deep into a book :D I can just picture her saying that quote to Harry and Ron. Haha! Yay for bookish characters who love bookish things!

  2. Aw, I forgot all about Belle. These characters bring a smile to my face…although Tyrion is always a dubious fellow (I’m still in the middle of A Game of Thrones and he’s found himself in a bit of a pickle). A Game of Thrones is so filled with politics (should have seen it coming) but I found the title in the book and GAH. It’s a perfect title cameo.
