When I meet a character who loves books as much as I do, I immediately fall in love and, if I’m being honest, the characters on my list this week are all my favourite.
1. Tessa Gray (from The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare)
Tessa is immediately the character I thought of for this list. She loves to read and talk about the stories too so she’s definitely 100% bookworm at heart.
Will is the person who fuels Tessa’s interest in books once she gets to London. Honestly, those two are the sweetest when they’re talking about A Tale of Two Cities.
Hermione is really the kind of bookworm I aspire to be. It seems like she’ll always find time for a good book and I can’t always do that. Not just fiction either but her ability to actually want to read a textbook in her free time is something I really wish I could do.
I don’t believe anyone on this list loves words more than this little girl. Her passion and her determination to learn to read is something that’s really touching in the book.
Oh, I adore her. One thing that I love about my fellow bookworms on this list is how much they love to talk to other people about books and Miss Morland is no exception.
I mean, I don’t want to spoil anything but this girl has some book hoarding problems and I can 100% relate.
This guy basically demands Celeana reads his favourite books so she can tell him what she thinks which is basically what I do every single day. Those two are the sweetest, honestly.
Hazel is my kind of book lover. She has a leading favourite book but she’s comfortable trying out something completely different. Plus, she’s really appreciative of books and words in general.
9. Augustus Waters (from The Fault in Our Stars)
Although he has quite a different taste in books than Hazel and myself, Gus is such a nerd and I had to include him in this list. He’s also not afraid to fanboy over a book. His reaction to the ending of An Imperial Addliction? Priceless.
At first I wasn’t going to put Alaska on this list because she isn’t the obvious choice and I’m not even sure if she counts. HOWEVER, the reason I am including her in this list is because of her amazing collection of books that she wants to read. Basically: yet another character with a book hoarding problem and I love it.
