8 comments

We're readers, so we love finding kindred spirits in our reading--that is, bookworms. ;)



Beauty - Beauty - How do you survive longterm imprisonment in a magical Beast's castle? Ride your horse and read.

The Dragon - Uprooted - How do you stay sane when caught between an evil forest and a chaotic mess of an apprentice? Read your books and follow the directions exactly so.

Verity Newton - Rebel Mechanics - How do you prepare for an independent life as a governess to the rich and magical? Read.



Jessamin - Illusions of Fate - How do you go to university across an ocean? Read.

Hermione Granger - Harry Potter - How do you keep your idiot friends alive through all seven years? Read.

Thursday Next - The Eyre Affair - How do you become a Spec-Ops LiteraTec agent responsible for literature everywhere? Read.



Andrew Hope - Enchanted Glass - What do you do as a history professor who hopes to one day write his own book? Read.

Jo March - Little Women - How do you learn to write? Read.

Catherine Morland - Northanger Abbey - How do you experience the excitement of a gothic romance without leaving home? Read.

Polly - Fire and Hemlock - How do you get wrapped up in a fey scheme and do magical things? Read.


That's it for this round of 10! Thanks for stopping by and check back tomorrow for this week's Updates! In which I ate real ramen and got my shiny new computer. :)

    1. Tilney! :D The Eyre Affair didn't wow me as much as I hoped, but you have to give something set in a world where classic literature has the popularity of today's TV/movies/music a try.

  2. JESSAMIN! One of my favorites - that book is my favorite White book, too. And Beauty! I need to read Uprooted, I think :D

    1. I think it's the only Kiersten White book I've read, but I really enjoyed it; and Beauty is an old favorite. I think you'd like Uprooted! It might be a little low on the romance for you, but it has a good story and great writing. :)

  3. Hermione!! Of all the bookworms, she most definitely proves the USEFULNESS of reading. =)

    1. True! We don't always remember knowledge is power, but in the world of Harry Potter, the more you know, the more you can do...and live through. :)

  4. This would be a tough list. I can think of two reading characters off the top of my head, one being Celaena from Throne of Glass. I am sure there are more bookworms, but unless it is important part of the story, I forget about it!

    1. This was actually harder to pull together than expected, and midway through I could only think of characters from classic literature. I was like, doesn't anyone read in stories anymore? But I'm sure there are more. I just can't think of them. :)
