Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Characters That Are Fellow Book Nerds

It's Tuesday which means that it is time for a Top Ten Tuesday post. This week's topic is ten characters that are fellow book nerds. The Top Ten Tuesday feature was created by The Broke and the Bookish and more about it can be found here. Let's get started...

10. Gus/Hazel from The Fault In Our Stars

The Fault in Our StarsHazel from TFiOS is obsessed with the book An Imperial Affliction to the point that she reads the book over and over. The novel follows after she passes it on to Gus who then falls in love with the book to the point that he uses his wish to meet Peter Van Houten although it doesn't go to plan. It is fair to say that Gus and Hazel should have a place on this list. 

9. Park from Eleanor & Park 

Eleanor & ParkAlthough Park is more of a comic book fan but it is fair to say that Park is still a fellow book nerd. It is the way that Eleanor and Park have their relationship start and they also deserves the place on this list.

8. Amie from the Spectacular Now 

The Spectacular NowAlthough I am not a massive fan of this book as a whole, Amie herself is a massive fan of fiction especially science fiction in which point she tries to introduce the novels to Sutter who who himself may be a little fan of fiction. 

7. Celaena from Throne Of Glass

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)Celaena may be an assassin but this doesn't stop her love for literature. In Throne Of Glass, Celaena uses Dorian's private library to get out books and loves them to a full extent showing that even those with a heart of steel are still a little soft when it comes to literature. 

6. Hermione from Harry Potter

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)Although her love may not be for fiction books like the other characters on the list, Hermione still has a love for her education and thus her magic books. It is safe to say that Hermione is still classified as a total book nerd. 

5. Simon from the Mortal Instruments

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)Although Simon is not fully bookish, he definitely counted as a nerd. With his obsession with anime, Simon definitely counts and this may mean that he reads manga anyway. 

4. Charlie from the Perks of Being A Wallflower

The Perks of Being a WallflowerCharlie from the Perks at the beginning of the book but as it progresses Charlie's book collection slowly grows with recommendations from his English teacher his book collection grows turning himself slowly into a book nerd. 

3. Liesel from the Book Thief 

The Book ThiefFrom the start of this book, Liesel is definitely a book nerd she just doesn't know it yet. From the Beginning Guide to Grave digging to saving books from burning, Liesel is definitely a book lover, even the title of the book itself says so. 

2. Alaska from Looking for Alaska 

Looking for AlaskaMiles from Looking for Alaska describes Alaska as "a girl who loves books" which definitely makes Alaska a book nerd. She has a wall full of shelves that she is afraid that she may not read before she dies and has many a book. It is fair to say that Alaska is definitely a book nerd. She states "I’ve maybe read a third of ‘em. But I’m going to read them all. I call it my Life’s Library. Every summer since I was little, I’ve gone to garage sales and bought all the books that looked interesting. So I always have something to read.” 

1. Cath from Fangirl 

It is fair to say that Cath is totally a book nerd. She reads lots of books especially the Simon Snow books to the extent that she writes fan fiction able the series. She definitely should be number one of this list.

My Reading Tastes Are Changing

For the last couple of years, I feel like this has become a reoccurring blog post but I want to talk about it now because I think something is actually happening in my reading life. My reading tastes are changing. I've felt it for a while. I haven't really been drawn to YA titles that much anymore especially contemporary. Being busy in my time, I have been really selective in the books that I pick up so for me: the shorter, the better. And when picking up shorter books, the less likely they are to be YA. The more I am exposed to more books, the more I get to read books that I connect to Some of the books that I have picked up have really surprised me because of how much I ended up enjoying them. I think as I grow older, I am looking for different stories, different experiences and different perspectives. These don't just fit the YA mould. I also have been really into different genres like horror and the occasional thriller which have not read from before and I'm interes

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti

Book Review: The Great Godden by Meg Rossoff

   * I am reviewing this book which I was gifted for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. * Title: The Great Godden  Author: Meg Rossoff Publisher: Bloomsbury  Source: NetGalley ( Bookshop UK |  Hive |  Goodreads  |  Storygraph ) Book Summary: Everyone talks about falling in love like it’s the most miraculous, life-changing thing in the world. Something happens, they say, and you know … That’s what happened when I met Kit Godden. I looked into his eyes and I knew. Only everyone else knew too. Everyone else felt exactly the same way. This is the story of one family, one dreamy summer – the summer when everything changes. In a holiday house by the sea, our watchful narrator sees everything, including many things they shouldn’t, as their brother and sisters, parents and older cousins fill hot days with wine and games and planning a wedding. Enter two brothers – irresistible, charming, languidly sexy Kit and surly, silent Hugo. Suddenly there’s
