Top Ten Tuesday: Read me Like you Do



As a reader, there's a special connection whenever I encounter a character who loves books like I do. It doesn't make him appear snobbish or an introvert to me. Just someone imaginative, who understands that answers are hidden in books. 

This novel tackles a lot of subjects, but among them, Dante's love for poetry and how he encourages his friend Aristotle to read. 

The Night Bookmobile by Audrey Niffenegger

Picture a Winnebago outside your house, holding all the books you've ever read. That's what Alexandra saw one night and couldn't stop thinking about it. She didn't want to leave. She wanted to travel in it forever... unfortunately not all wishes are wise. 

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Fanfiction!! That's an important word to E.L.James and Cather, of course, who spends her time in this novel writing about her favorite character, Simon Snow. 

Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer

A reader who falls in love with a main character. Hey, it happens! But a character who falls in love back? Now, that is a novel worth reading.   

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling

Couldn't do this list without Hermione. She is always carrying a book and absorbing its knowledge. The definition of a true bookworm. 

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Liesel, who once struggled to read and write, falls in love with books and becomes a writer. 

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin

I have never seen a book with so many bookish references. Of course, the main character is a librarian and his love interest distributes books. 

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

Jo March loves books so much, her passion soon converts to writing them. 

Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld

The main character Darcy is a YA novelist about to publish her first series and living the dream life in NYC. 

The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank

Could have also gone for The Perks of Being a Wallflower or The Diary of a Wimpy Kid as all books appear in the form of a journal. But, Anne Frank's an original and that counts for something. 

Who is on your bookworm list?
