TOP TEN TUESDAY: BOOKISH CHARACTERS 28.7.15


~
TOP TEN TUESDAY
July 28th Theme at The Broke and Bookish ? 
Ten Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds 
[love reading, are writers, work at a bookstore, etc] 

Here's one TTT to get me researching my book memories!
Not sure I'll make it to 10 but will give it a go ...
Beginning with this month's PARIS in JULY theme, I'll add -
~
1-

celebrated reading any from the series of our book loving Anne of Green Gables -

~
4- 
~
Love CJ Darlington's suspense filled thriller series of antiquarian estate sales and 1st editions...
book 1 Thicker Than Blood
~
5-

~
Book 2 - Bound by Guilt - from my review:
"The story itself is intense with an increasing pace that had me laying the book aside at times to relieve the tension. Suspenseful drama, mystery, adventure, intrigue, all realistic in culturally relevant contemporary settings. Well developed growth and maturing of likeable characters; strong emotionally influential features of disliked characters. Generational variety in characters who come to life in the reading, exhibiting believable actions and reactions.
Enough twists to keep the reader guessing and unsettled enough to keep reading. 
I recommend Ms Darlington's 'Bound By Guilt' as readily as her debut, 'Thicker Than Blood'."

6-
~
3rd of the series, Ties That BindOn a quest to find her father, a young woman discovers she has two sisters who have no idea she exists. Brynn Taylor is determined to find her father, a man she's never met. Her only clue to his whereabouts is an address she finds in a rare volume of Jane Austen's "Sense & Sensibility" inscribed to her years ago.
~
7-
~
Situated in England and suddenly out of work, an opportunity to assist an author offers
A Summer to Remember
~
8- 
~
From summer to winter, a  bookstore owner's story I loved is found in Jan Karon's
Shepherds Abiding
~
9-
~
And from winter to Summer's List . 
When Summer's dying gran gives Summer a bucket list to complete, Summer must decide
if she's willing or not to venture beyond her comfortable life hidden in the bookstore.
This newly released bookstore tale brings me to 10.
