Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s prompt is Ten Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds. A couple of these characters are more “word nerds” (or writers) than “book nerds”, but I think all book nerds have an appreciation for words in general.
1) Matilda from Roald Dahl’s Matilda
2) Daphne de Luce from Alan Bradley’s Flavia de Luce series
3) Hermione Granger from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series
4) Catherine Morland from Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey
5) Sadie from Sara O’Leary/Julie Morstad’s This is Sadie
6) Vander Burke from Page Morgan’s The Dispossessed series
7) Liesel Meminger from Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief
8) Ambrose Bukowski from Susin Nielsen’s Word Nerd
9) Mia Thermopolis from Meg Cabot’s The Princess Diaries series
10) Lydia Jaackson-Oberman from Jaclyn Moriarty’s The Year of Secret Assignments
Those were the ones I could think of, though I’m sure I’m missing someone obvious. Who made it onto your lists?

I saw The Beautiful and the Cursed on your list and I went, okay who… Oh! Vander. How could I forget him? I mean, he works (owns? I can’t remember by now) at a bookstore. Anyway, even if I feel kind of guilty for forgetting my favorite guy from the series, great list.
Haha, yes Vander owns a bookstore! I’m sure he’d forgive you for forgetting :P I love the sound of Wrapped from your list (and it has such a great cover!)!
I really need to read Word Nerd some day. It’s been on my TBR list for far too long. Here’s what I came up with for this week: I’m so in love with this week’s topic because I adore books about book nerds. :) Here’s what I came up with for this week: http://theliterarycounsellor.com/2015/07/28/ten-characters-who-are-fellow-book-nerds/
Oh Copy/Paste… you have forsaken me! :P
Yes, definitely! Reading your list made me add a bunch of books to my own TBR – it was such a fun topic!
Daphne was on my list too! And Hermione, of course. :) Great list!
I knew you’d appreciate Daphne being on the list! And Hermione was the first person I thought of! :)
