~Top Ten Book-Loving Characters~
The inspiration behind the entire list. Love her obsession with books of all types and how she uses that knowledge to help her friends.
2. Pauline Simms -- Any Duchess Will Do by Tessa Dare
A barmaid whose ultimate dream is to own a bookstore and a deal with a wealthy duke puts her that much closer to her goal.
3. Jane Jameson -- Jane Jameson series by Molly Harper
A children's librarian who is turned into a vampire the day she is unfairly fired. Jane is quirky and just fun to read about especially with her love for the novels of Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters.
4. Daisy Bowman -- Scandal in Spring by Lisa Kleypas
An American heiress who (along with her sister) is trying to attract a titled British husband even though she would rather read romances and day dream.
5. Cress -- Cress by Marissa Meyer
A young woman who has been stuck on a satellite for seven years with only her netscreen and books for company.
6. Katy Swartz -- Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout
A teenager who not only is a bookworm, but is a book blogger! I love this element of her character even more than her relationship with sexy alien, Daemon Black.
7. Augustus Waters -- The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
*sob* One of the few male characters I could think of that enjoyed reading. His favorite book series is a major plot point and just made me fall more in love with him than before.
8. Sebastian Iverly -- The Dangerous Viscount by Miranda Neville
A romance hero who is obsessed with books! I loved the way that this book took the classic wallflower theme and gave it a gender twist.
9. Matilda -- Matilda by Roald Dahl
Another of my childhood idols! I love the way that Matilda muses about why she is attracted to books.
10. Liesel Meminger -- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I couldn't have a list of book-loving characters and not mention the admirable Liesel who was obsessed with them even before she learned how to read.
