TOP TEN TUESDAY — BOOKISH CHARACTERS

Hello my lovelies! I sure hope this Tuesday is treating you kindly so far, because today is my birthday! I’m not expecting much of anything for today — my last couple of birthdays have sucked majorly. Last year, I was 5 days out from a c-section, and hauling my newborn to his first ever doctor appointment. I was in so much pain. The year before that, well, it was mid-pandemic and I was terrified of catching a respiratory disease when I’m asthmatic. HERE’S HOPING THIS YEAR IS A MILLION TIMES BETTER, YEAH?

ANYWAYYYYYYYYYYYY…

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is BOOKISH CHARACTERS. I love a good bookish character — I see myself in them a lot. I also am a huge sucker for books ABOUT books.

  • DIANA, from the All Souls Trilogy — Diana is a professor, and spends an enormous amount of time in this book with her nose deep in research.
  • ZACHARY, from The Starless Sea — Zachary wants nothing more than to be a reading major
  • EDWIN, from A Marvellous Light — Edwin researches and researches, and taught himself a great many things from his books
  • LIRAEL, from Lirael — Lirael’s heart’s desire was to work in the Great Library of the Clayr. She gets her wish!
  • JACKABY, from Jackaby — Jackaby is a sort of magical/supernatural Sherlock, and as such, is constantly looking things up. His library is home to several different types of creatures, too.
  • ELIZABETH, from Sorcery of Thorns — Elizabeth is a foundling at a great magical library, and the books end up protecting her when she is in great danger.
  • JESS, from Ink and Bone — Jess is from a society where books are illegal, and ends up working at a library to save them.
  • JANUARY, from The Ten Thousand Doors of January — January finds a book that reveals her power of stepping into other worlds.
  • KIRSTEN, from Station Eleven — Kirsten spends most of her time trying to find copies of / other issues of her favorite graphic novel. I’d be doing the same if I was safe enough, and in a post-apocalyptic USA.
  • CHARLEY, from The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep — Charley can read characters out of books and straight into real life!

Who did you come up with this week? Share your links below and I’ll check them out!

    1. Thank you, Dini! Already it’s better (I’m not in pain, there’s no screaming baby!) and it’s only 9:30 am. I think you’ll love a lot of these books! I can’t recommend A Marvellous Light enough!
