Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
I really like this week’s topic because it’s almost like looking in a mirror reading a book about bookish characters. Whether the protagonist is an avid reader, librarian, book seller or writer, there’s just something so relatable about it because it’s most likely what we are doing as well.
But as I was trying to come up with a list of books with bookish characters, I realized I don’t read many books that actually have such individuals in them. So I’m excited to read all of your other lists this week! But in the meantime, here are the few I could come up with, grouped by bookish character type.
- Last Chance Books by Kelsey Rodkey
- Recommended for You by Laura Silverman
- Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley
- The Paris Library by Janet Skeslien Charles
- Being Mary Bennet by JC Peterson
- Love & Luck by Jenna Evans Welch
- Bookish and the Beast by Ashley Poston
- Book Lovers by Emily Henry
- Sense and Second-Degree Murder by Tirzah Price
- The Roughest Draft by Emily Wibberley & Austin Siegemund-Broka
Let me know if any of these books are on your radar! I’ve read half of these and the rest are on my TBR, but I’m intrigued by it all.
Until next week!
