Top 10 Tuesday — Book-Loving Heroines

21 Feb

Happy Tuesday! Today TTT is featuring favorite heroines. I have been a bookworm since forever, and I love a character that shares my passion for books and reading. They are the kind of characters that become friends. My list today includes heroines that are unapologetic book nerds like me, or are those who come to love books in the course of the novel. It’s an eclectic list, as I am an eclectic reader. I hope you can find a book and heroine to love! Note on the list: all are randomly listed. In the case of series in which they appear, I have listed the first book.

For more favorite heroines, check out That Artsy Reader Girl.

    I enjoy book-loving heroines, too. I’ve seen Beauty and the Beast and I think I have read the fairy tale. I love Northanger Abbey. I’ve read Wonderland Creek but don’t remember much about it–didn’t review it for some reason. I’ve got Hope Between the Pages and The Librarian of Saint-Malo in my Kindle.

    One of my favorite books featuring reading heroines was Dear Mr. Knightley by Katherine Reay. It’s my favorite of her books.

      I liked that book as well. The Librarian of Saint-Malo was a particular favorite of mine.
