Top 5 Wednesday | Bookworm Characters

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly prompt originally created by Lainey @GingerReadsLainey on Youtube. Every Wednesday, you are presented with a new topic and list your top 5 books related to that topic. You can join the Goodreads group HERE!

This week’s prompt focuses on characters that love to read. Not gonna lie, when I pick up a book and the characters also talk about loving to read, it ups the star rating immediately, so I was really excited to see this prompt for the week!

Matilda Wormwood from Matilda

This list just wouldn’t be complete without Matilda; she stole my heart immediately. Not only does she love to read and is super smart, but she is also such a sweet little girl and you can’t help but root for her to succeed.

Alex Nilsen from People We Meet on Vacation

Alex is top tier book boyfriend material! In the very first chapter of the book, he was sat at a bar reading a book, and from that moment on, I knew I would fall in love with him. Spoiler Alert: I did.


Klaus Baudelaire from A Series of Unfortunate Events

I was obsessed with this series as a kid, and I really enjoyed the movies too! I love all the Baudelaire siblings, but I think I relate the most to Klaus’ personality, and I like that his bookish nature and photographic memory can help him and his siblings escape precarious situations.

Elena Greco from the My Brilliant Friend Series

My Brilliant Friend is an underrated book that I don’t see being posted about often, if ever. The series follows Elena Greco and her best friend, Lila Cerullo starting in the 1950s in Naples. Both girls are very smart and love to read, but live in a pretty poor neighborhood where the opportunity to advance their studies is not a given. The dynamic of their friendship is an interesting one to read about, and it is high on my list of best historical fictions I’ve read.


Joe Goldberg from You

I read the book before it became a Netflix series, so when I heard that it was going to be adapted for TV, I was really excited because I loved Joe. Not only does he enjoy reading, but he manages a bookstore. I definitely think he is a terrible person, but the way he was written made me enjoy being inside his mind, regardless of how twisted it is.

  1. Hahaha i love love love Rory’s book collection. Also, ok Alex from PWMoV sounds really lovely. On another note, read Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen if you haven’t. The book features both heroand heroine who go on lengthy discussions about reading novels and gothic fiction haha! It’san absolute delight!
