There's something special about reading a book and seeing yourself in one of the characters for the first time. For me, it was characters like Ramona and Anne Shirley...the ones who felt perfectly melodramatic about everything in their life, even if they didn't have cause to.
Often our favorite books and characters are the ones most like us. Why else would Holden Caulfield be so popular with teens? And if you're reading this blog post, chances are that character was a bookworm.
There's nothing more perfect than finding a fictional best friend who loves to read just as much as you do. You cheered when Rory Gilmore talked about the smell of a book...
...and when Belle sang about reading a book about "lovers in fair Verona" in the opening song...(hint hint: Romeo and Juliet)
But, of course, some of the best examples come from books themselves. Without further ado, I'll introduce you to (or help you re-visit) eight literary bookworms who are sure to quickly become your new fictional best friends.
