Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. I thought this would be a fun way to share a condensed version of potential rambles and thoughts that I have.
This Week’s Theme:
Ten Characters Who Are
Fellow Book Nerds
Today’s prompt looks at characters who are book nerds and it ranks up there as one of the harder topics to find characters to fit seeing as how I rarely come across characters that concern themselves with the literature. And since I couldn’t fill this list with solely book-related characters, I’ll throw some television ones out there as well.
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry – Gabrielle Zevin
One of the many examples in fiction of books about books.
Messenger of Fear – Michael Grant
I don’t remember much about this book or which characters were the aspiring authors LOL but there was reference of Random House and NaNoWriMo in this, so that has to count for something.
Red Queen – Victoria Aveyard
By the time you read this, I should be done this book. But Julian gives me old people feels. That is all.
Fahrenheit 451 – Ray Bradbury
The transition from incinerating books to being engrossed in the texts is a peculiar kind of growth.
Lexicon – Max Barry
What would readers and book nerds be without words or the power they hold?
Matilda – Roald Dahl
This kid is probably more well read at her age than I will ever be in a lifetime.
The Mindy Project
My mind tells me that Mindy was reading a Cosmo or Danny was reading some kind of book. Not certain this happened but definitely not impossible.
The Gilmore Girls
Know that I did not finish watching this because I-dont-have-a-solid-reason, so I can only ship Rory with Jess—wait, that’s not what this topic is about—yes, Rory fits the bookworm title!
I’ll admit that I couldn’t care much for Lisa but she was an integral part of this show when I watched it growing up.
Suits/How to Get Away With Murder
Any law-oriented show can basically make reading pages and pages of legal documents and texts interesting. Sure it’s not leisurely reading but dude, I wouldn’t mind spending several minutes watching them watch their text all intently. Oooh the suspense! (Not even sarcasm.)
Game of Thrones
This could have gone under the book-character specific category but I ain’t got time to read it. So hello Tyrion, welcome to the ranks of television.
Orange is the New Black
Remember when The Fault in our Stars (John Green) was featured?
Daria Morgendorffer epitomizes so many of us.
House of Cards
Frank Underwood seems to be an incredibly well read. So well read that it’s perhaps a bit scary. But I would read that non-fiction book that Yates wrote concerning America Works.
(There’s probably more though but my brain is fried.)
DIFFICULT TOPIC IS DIFFICULT.
