  1. This is a great list. I Hermione would have been on my list, had I made one (but I didn't). Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice comes to me mind and Meggie from Inkheart.

    1. I was trying to select only characters who I could find quotes or descriptions about their books/reading. The section of Pride and Prejudice where Elizabeth is reading the quote comes from Caroline Bingley, and it is said in a snotty way. Is there another section where Elizabeth talks about liking books?

  2. Great list! I should have added Hazel and it's great to see Miss Morland getting some attention! :)

  6. Great list here and some of my favs, for sure. Woohoo, for our list matching some. I cannot believe how many I forgot though that I love and didn't include! And others that I couldn't really figure out a way to include because Blogger was being a brat for me last night.

    My Top Ten List ~ Happy Reading!

  9. Jo March, yes! She's such a fun, entertaining lit character. Still cannot believe I left off Hazel. How could I forget her obsession with that ONE book!? :)

    Thanks so much for visiting Dreaming Under the Same Moon.

    1. I created the quote photos for those characters where I couldn't find what I wanted on-line. which was five of them. You can probably tell which ones I made because they are the badly done ones: Fangirl; Looking for Alaska; Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore; The Fault in Our Stars; and Anne of Green Gables.

  16. I love your list! We were really similar in our choices. Love that!.

  17. Oh great list! I should have added Alaska to mine, I am not even sure why I didn't, especially since it would have given me 10! Hazel made my list too. The only other book I've read on your list is Little Women, but of course, I had heard that Hermione, Liesel, and Cath were readers too- I must read The Book Thief and Fangirl ASAP!

    1. Alaska was the last character on my list because my daughter read my list and reminded me to add her. In fact she was the one that found the quote about Alaska and her library of books. I don't think I saw her on anyone else's list.
