Top Ten Tuesdays is a meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is
Top Ten Books with Fellow Book Nerds
1. Anne Shirley from L. M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables: Anne loves poetry and she wants to write.
2. Emily Byrd Starr from L. M. Montgomery’s Emily of New Moon: Emily’s trilogy follows her struggles as she seeks to become a writer. She has a very influential teacher who is, charmingly, very hard on her work, though ultimately supportive.
3. Jo March from Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women: Perhaps the most well-known aspiring writer.
4. Rebecca Randall from Kate Douglas Wiggin’s Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm: An aspiring writer who begins, realistically, by not being all that good–not even at spelling.
5. Betsy Ray from Maud Hart Lovelace’s Betsy-Tacy series: I never identified with her personally, but I’m sure a lot of readers did. She, like the characters just mentioned, wishes to be a writer.
6. Hermione Granger from J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series: I think she inspired a lot of girls to embrace their intellectual tendencies.
7. Matilda Wormwood from Roald Dahl’s Matilda: Matilda uses the library to escape her abusive parents.
8. Elizabeth Bennett from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice: I agree with Mr. Darcy–people who read books are people I want to know!
9. Faramir from J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings: If he were not forced to war, Faramir would be at home supporting the arts. What a great steward he would have been.
10. Aragorn from J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn is clearly a master of lore, though forced like Faramir to wield the sword.
Who are some of your favorite book nerds?

Yay for the shoutout to Faramir; he made it on my list this week too 😉 Awesome list!
I had a few of the same characters for my Top Ten Tuesday post for tomorrow. Some of my favorites are Hermione Granger, Jo March, Anne Shirley, and Liesel Meminger.
Oh, Liesel is a good one! I didn’t remember her!
Interesting to see Faramir and Aragorn on your list. I hadn’t thought of them. 🙂
I just wish I could have fit Bilbo on there!

I love that you included Faramir and Aragorn. I saw Bilbo on another list and I can’t believe I didn’t remember them. 😉
I wanted to put Bilbo, but ran out of room! Your name does imply that he should be on your list, though!! 😀
Aragorn was such a good idea!!!! He’s one of my all time favourite fictional characters, thanks for making me love him even more 😀 I’d never considered him as a booknerd before.. Great list!
Here’s my list if you want to have a look 🙂
Laura @ What’s Hot?
Ooh… Rapunzel was a great pick!
Wonderful list! Love that you included two LOTH characters 🙂 Here is my list if you want to check it out: http://www.bookworminkorporated.com/book-nerd-characters/
Thanks for leaving your link! I love that you included The Mysterious Benedict Society!
I had Elizabeth on my list too! 🙂 I didn’t see her on many others. I thought she was an obvious choice. Great list!
Check out my TTT!
I think I saw her on one or two. I wanted to fit Catherine Morland on there, too, but didn’t have the space.
