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. 

What are some of your favourite characters who are fellow book nerds? Leave them in the comments below. 

See you soon,

2nd Year Blogging Anniversary and GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)

So if you see by the title of the blog post, it has been over two years, on the 15th June 2015, since my first blog post. I said in my last blog post that a lot has changed in a year but I feel like the thing that has changed most is the layout because let's face it I haven't really been consistent this year. (I blame university.) Although my posts are inconsistent I still love blogging and come up with so many ideas that I want to write about and would love to become more consistent over the next year but we will see how that goes. Blogging comes with a great community of people and Twitter chats have made me find so many books that I love and interact with great people so I am happy to be part of this community. 

So last year I completed a mini-survey which spoke about books that I like and want to read to see if I might have changed in a year so I thought that this was something I will do again...

Female Representation in Harry Potter: A Transcription

So later today, in 2 hours I am going to be doing a presentation on Female Representation in Harry Potter for my university's Harry Potter Society and I thought some of you may be interested in what I had to say. I also respect that people may disagree with my views on the subject and understand that this is not the only opinion you can have. So here it is...

Hello, everyone. Thank you for coming! Today I am going to discuss female representation in Harry Potter books and films. The aims of this presentation would be to introduce you to the fact that female representation in Harry Potter may not be what it seems. So you may think that female characters are actually quite well done in the series but at some points, this is not the case. To look at this further I will be looking at characters individually as well as some aspects of the series in general. I guess that until I first researched the topic, I thought that of course, Harry Potter was going to have good female representation…
