Top Ten Tuesday

This week's topic is:
Top Ten Character Names I love...

Sebastian - The Nature of Jade by Deb Caletti
Margot - Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Jericho - The Diviners by Libba Bray
Étienne - Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Augustus - The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Tristan - Tristan and Iseuldt by M. Joseph Bedier
Mara Dyer - The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
Atticus - To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Tobias - Divergent by Veronica Roth
Gemma - A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

The Broke and the Bookish is a group of college aged and twenty somethings that have an unhealthy obsession with reading and would spend every last penny on books even if it meant skipping a few meals. We are the people  who lurk in the library, buy handbags based on how many books can be stashed in them, and who refer to characters in books as if they are personal friends.
We sought after other bookish college students to share in our love for reading and were brought together by the College Students group on Goodreads that was created in September 2008. Our desire to share great books with each other in and our tendency to be opinionated and passionate about all things book related naturally led to the birth of The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010.


  1. Sebastian, Augustus, Mara Dyer, Tobias -- so many fabulous names!

    Great top ten :)

  2. I really like Étienne, as well as Augustus (although I always think of Charlie & the Chocolate factory!)

  3. I love the name Tristan! Gemma is also really nice. These are all great picks, Britt!
