Top Ten Tuesday: My Top Eleven Bookish Characters

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely Jana at The Artsy Reader Girl.


This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic is favorite Bookish Characters and here are some of mine: 


Even Hell has a library and Claire is the head of the Unwritten Library in this first book in A.J. Hackworth's series, The Library of the Unwritten


Lindsey Norris is the Director of the Briar Creek Public Library in the Library Lover's cozy mystery series by Jenn McKinLay. 


Liesel is more than just a book thief in this moving novel by Markus Zusak set in World War II. 


Carrie Singleton is in charge of programs and events at the local public library in the Haunted Library cozy mystery series, which also features a ghost!



Down on her luck Carmen is tasked with helping turn a failing bookstore around in Jenny Colgan's The Christmas Bookshop.


Librarian Amy Webber has her hands full in Victoria Gilbert's Blue Ridge Library cozy mystery series. 


Jess Brightwell, whose family has a long history of stealing and selling books on the black market, gets a position with the Great Library and must work extra hard to hold onto it in this fantasy series by  Rachel Caine. 


Brooklyn Wainwright is a rare book expert in San Francisco in the Bibliophile cozy mystery series by Kate Carlisle. 


Bookstore salesclerk Nina Hill wants more in life but doubts her life will ever live up to the fiction she enjoys reading in Abbi Waxman's The Bookish Life of Nina Hill.


Trudell Beckett is a librarian who takes matters into her own hands when her library goes book-less by creating a secret library in the basement for patrons who aren't ready to give up their physical books in the Beloved Bookroom cozy mystery series by Dorothy St. James. 


Irene
is my favorite spy and librarian in the Invisible Library series by Genevieve Cogman that combines fantasy and mystery.
