Ten Bookish Characters I Love

Hello everybody! Today, I’m taking part in top ten Tuesday, and the theme today is bookish characters- as in characters who have some kind of connection to reading or writing. Onto the post!


Matilda Wormwood– I mean, she’s just the OG bookworm, isn’t she? I know there is a lot of problematic stuff surrounding the author, and I’m not going to bat for him, but I think every bookish kid related to Matilda (although hopefully NOT the abuse parts…) and I also love how much this book celebrates libraries!!

Tilly from Pages and Co– Tilly’s family own the most incredible bookshop and have the ability to bookwander, so she obviously had to be on here. Can you imagine how fun it would be to visit your favourite books and have characters come visit you?!

Poppy from the Bookshop of Dust and Dreams– Poppy’s family also owns a bookshop, which in this case is sentient and has feelings and it’s just so magical and amazing.

Mia Tang from Front Desk– Mia really wants to be a writer and that is a huge part of her arc across the trilogy, so she just had to be on here. I love her passion for writing about her life and experiences very much, and I defy you to read these books and not want all her dreams to come true.

Daisy Wells from Murder Most Unladylike– I mean, she’s not the most bookish of all time, but she loves a good mystery and that qualifies her enough for this list imo.

Literally everyone in the Paper and Hearts Society (but especially Ed, because he is my beloved)- I love this series so much! They absolute do tackle important stuff like bullying and burnout, but at their core they’re just about people coming together because they love books and I think that’s so special.

Paige from the Yearbook– I mean Paige has a whole love story in the pages of books with the mysterious Red Pen. This book is a tough read at times due to the bullying and abuse, but the romance subplot is so wholesome and pure and precious.

Kara from Talk Bookish to Me- Kara is another writer, who also writes romance in fact, and her book is about her finding inspiration for a new book in her very own second chance romance romcom story.

January and Gus from Beach Read– the main characters in this book are both authors, who decide to write a manuscript in the other’s genre over the summer for a bet, and then they end up falling in love.

June from the Last Library– I read this book on a day when I was really ill and I think stuck in my house because it was snowing (the weather sadly greatly affects whether or not I can leave the house!). Anyway, June is a library assistant who defies her bosses to join a campaign to save the library she works in, and I just loved her so much. It was beautiful to see how her fighting for the library ended up changing her life in every way.


Thank you so much for reading! Which bookish characters did you love that I’ve shamefully forgotten? Do you have any thoughts on the ones I’ve chosen? I’d love to chat with you in the comments!!

Ten Vivid Memories I Have of Books

Hello everybody! So, today’s Top Ten Tuesday is about bookish memories, and I was originally going to try and vary these a lot more, but I’m writing this on a very bad day in terms of my illness, and it got me thinking about how many days like this there have been and the books that provided escape during them. So I’m writing all about those instead. Onto the post!

Top Ten Tuesday: Romance Books I Recommend

Hello everybody! Today I’m doing my first Top Ten Tuesday of the year, and I genuinely can’t remember the last time I did a prompt. Nonetheless, today is Valentine’s Day themed so I thought I’d chat about some of my favourite adult romances that I’ve read, as it’s become one of my absolute go to genres in the past year and I probably don’t mention these as much as YA romances I pick up. Onto the post!
