May is Get Caught Reading Month, so seems perfect for this top ten Tuesday theme of bookish characters who can be readers, librarians, writers, authors, professors, etc. My list includes characters I encountered over the years (many in my recent reads), and when you open the pages of the book they are in, you are sure to catch them in the act of reading (or being bookish in one way or the other) sooner or later (literally!).
10+ Fictional Characters Who Would Get Caught Reading For Sure
From Books I have read
- Asher and Darcy from The Library of Lost Things by Laura Taylor Namey
- Cussy Mary Lovett from The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson
- Daniel Sempere from The Shadow Of The Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
- Honey Lovett from The Book Woman’s Daughter by Kim Michele Richardson (just finished reading this one, so yet to review it, but suffice to say, it is a worthy sequel to a wonderful book)
- Karina from Counting Down With You by Tashu Bhuiyan
- Odile Souchet from The Paris Library by Janet Skeslien Charles
- Olive and Theo from Love and Olives by Jenna Evans Welch
From Books on My TBR
- Deza Malone from The Mighty Miss Malone by Christopher Paul Curtis (My teens enjoyed Bud, Not Buddy a few years ago, and while I wanted to read it, somehow I never did. But this one caught my eye recently and I added it to my TBR)
- Rachel and Henry from Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley
exegetical: (adj): critical explanation or interpretation of a text, especially of scripture; an exegetical text
I found this in the Afterword of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (and the Afterword in itself was an exegetical text of Sir Gawain). How I came to read this in itself is a story in itself (for another time though)
tittynope (n): refers a small quantity of anything left over. It is said to be an old English term derived from the word tittle (those small marks or points used in writing, including the dots over lowercase i and j).
From watching Netflix’s Murderville (and we heard it on both the episodes we watched – at random)!!
Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where you can share new words that you’ve encountered, or spotlight words you love. Feel free to get creative! It was first created by Kathy over at Bermuda Onion and is now hosted at Elza Reads.
And Now, the End of this Post
Dear readers, who would I find in your list of fictional bookish characters? Have you read any of the books on my list here?
