We all love books. Pretty sure that’s pretty evident based on the fact that we, in a weekly fashion, join in a meme that’s all about (or at least 99% of the time) promoting books. However, how often to be meet characters in the pages of books that we relate to or remind us of… us? That’s right today we meet a few of the favorite book nerd characters we all know (?) and love (?).LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO… 13 FAVORITE BOOK NERDS #TOPTENTUESDAY #LIST #BOOKLIST #BOOKNERD #BOOKWORM #READER #AMREADING #READERS #READING Click To Tweet
Oddly enough I find it hard to find book worm characters in fiction. I don’t know why this is, but I don’t seem to run across them a whole lot. Nonetheless shall endeavor to find some to create today’s list because I’m always and forever all about a good book nerd or simply a character who loves to write. Whatever the case, let’s see who on my shelf has this charming trait.

1: BECCA from THE UPSIDE OF FALLING
2: BELLE from BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
Technically this character may have been a “movie first” character (yes? No?), but I cannot let a list like this go without mention of Belle. If for no reason other than don’t we all want her library? Shop the 2017 adaptation on Amazon Video
3: ELIZABETH BENNET from PRIDE & PREJUDICE
Just iconic. And that’s all I have to say. Amazon Shop the Book | Goodreads | Shop the 2005 adaptation digitally on Amazon Video
4: NORA BRADFORD from TRUE TO YOU
This book is all kinds of stunning if you like contemporary. Really, Becky’s novels are solid all the way around if you like more than just “fluff” in contemporary (though I don’t mind). Plus in True to You we have a lovely character who loves books and it’s just… ideal reading. Amazon | Goodreads
5: LARA JEAN COVEY from TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE
6: MARIANNE DASHWOOD from SENSE & SENSIBILITY
I mean, come on, Marianne is pretty bookish, right? She’s perhaps not in the way Lizzie is or even her sister Elinor but Marianne loves poetry and is quite the romantic. We can agree, she fits fine, right? Amazon Shop the Book | Goodreads | Shop the 2008 miniseries digitally on Amazon Video
7: JANE HAYWORTH from AUSTENLAND
Pretty sure an Austen fanatic qualifies for this list. Plus, we #RELATE, right? Shop the film adaptation digitally on Amazon Video
8: NINA HILL from THE BOOKISH LIFE OF NINA HILL
Sadly I didn’t really love this novel and I wanted to… so badly! But I think most everyone I see chat about it thought it was fun, so likely, this is a “me not you” kind of situation. Amazon |Goodreads
9: SARAH HOLLENBECK from THE SECRET LIFE OF SARAH HOLLENBECK
10: KELS from WHAT I LIKE ABOUT YOU
11: LIBBY KINGSLEY from UNTIL I MET YOU
12: JOSEPHINE MARCH from JO & LAURIE
Originally from Little Women, of course, I’m adding Jo from the YA novel Jo & Laurie since I’ve read it and not Louisa May Alcott’s classic story. That said, of course I do love the film adaptations based on Alcott’s stories and Jo’s scribbles are always to be admired. Amazon | Bookshop.org | Goodreads
13: ANNE SHIRLEY from ANNE OF GREEN GABLES
