It’s time for another Friday Favorites hosted by Kibby @ Something of the Book! This weekly meme is where you get to share a list of all your favorites based on the list of prompts on Kibby’s page. Sounds fun, right? This week’s prompt is: favorite nerdy characters. Ooh, yay, fun! I always love reading about nerdy characters with their quirks and humor. They’re characters that I always relate to on some level as well! I’m going to try mentioning characters/books that I haven’t done before with this list of my top five favorite nerds!
Lazlo Strange from Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer #1) by Laini Taylor
I mean, it’s Lazlo who lives in the library, lives in stories and has great dreams. His knowledge about the city of Weep literally launched him into the greatest adventure of his life and made his dreams to visit Weep come true (as corny and simplified as that sounds)!
Belle from In Bed With the Beast (Naughty Princess Club #2) by Tara Sivec
Belle was an adorable little book nerd who had a propensity to blurt out random facts that cemented her nerd status whenever she was nervous. She was an adorable character who lived to save her library and I loved her story!
Khai Diep from The Bride Test (The Kiss Quotient #2) by Helen Hoang
I honestly love all the characters in Hoang’s books and Khai won me over very quickly! He’s super smart but his autism means he processes emotions differently, and because of that he doesn’t think he is capable of love. Oh, little dumpling of hotness. He’s one of my favorite nerds ever!
Audrey Rose Wadsworth from Stalking Jack the Ripper series by Kerri Maniscalco
So, I’ve actually only just started reading Stalking Jack the Ripper. It’s still early days but I already really like Audrey’s character and I have a feeling I’m going to love her throughout the series! I hope I’m right (lol) and I mean, what’s more nerdy than sneaking off to learn about medicine and bodies by doing autopsies with “Uncle Cadaver”? 😂
Hermione Granger from Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling
I mean… I’ve no doubt that everyone who has to answer this question will mention Hermione, but I think she’s the epitome of nerdy characters. Sometimes her know-it-all attitude can be grating, but I still love her. She’s unabashed about her knowledge and has a great thirst for knowledge, and how many times did her brilliance come through in the story!?
What are some of your favorite nerdy characters? Would any of these make your list? Leave me a comment below and let’s chat!
