Book Lists: Champions Read

To celebrate the end of book week I decided to take a leaf out of the CBCA’s shoes and go with their 2012 theme: Champions Read!

So here is a list of books with protagonists, or characters, who read.

Harry Potter Series by JK Rowlings

Hermoine is the unsung hero of all the Harry Potter books (personal opinion). Where does she get all her knowledge from? Books, books and more books.

Matilda by Roald Dahl

What made Matilda special was that books were given emotional currency. They were a lifeline, an imaginary escape, from her reality. Matilda found friends, adventure, acceptance and comfort in the world of books.

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

Jo March; head in a book, clouds in her eyes and a determination to stand up and be heard. Her book reading inspired stories and play time with her siblings. Books inspire Jo to dream of changing the world to make it a better place.

Getting Over Garrett Delaney by Abby McDonald

What’s fresh about this protagonist and her reading is that she rediscovers the joy of reading. Sadie’s life for the last two years has been about Garrett. What Garrett does. What he likes. What he reads. Her crush has caused her to lose herself and become a Garret puppet. So instead of reading Garrett Delaney sanctioned pretentious literature, Sadie is reading romance and sci-fi and having a dandy time of it.

Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer

In-between falling in love with vampires, having werewolves fall in love with her and acing her history quiz, Bella always found a quite moment to sit in the sun and have a bit of a read with the classics. Say what you will about Twilight, but it made classics like Wuthering Heights in-vogue again.
