Top 10 Books About Books You Should Totally Check Out


Happy Tuesday, fellow book friends! Today is another Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Today is a freebie prompt, so I have decided to discuss books about books! I have been wanting to do this post since I started blogging, and today was a great opportunity to do so! Plus, what is better than a book about a book? 

1. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

It’s been a while since I read this book, but I remember it being quite good. It is about the book burnings in World War II Germany and a young girl trying to find her way amidst all the chaos. She finds she really loves reading and kind of steals books, but it’s a wonderful story!

2. The Book Jumper by Mechthild Glaser

I have not read this one, but the premise is very interesting! I would love to be able to jump into books as this main character can!

3. Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

I love love love this book! It is beautiful and amazing and really represents all kinds of people. Eliza is an online comic book writer and illustrator, and her story has an incredible influence on her life and this book.

4. Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld

I read this soooo long ago but it was interesting from what I remember. It is like two stories in one, both telling of a teen author’s journey through publishing and telling the story that she wrote. There are two completely different styles in one story, and somehow they fit together nicely!

5. The Memory Book by Lara Avery

This is a story of a girl who is told she will eventually lose her memory, so she decides to write down her life in a book. Honestly, it sounds rather sad, but I’ve heard it’s a lovely book!

6. Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult

Hey, wouldn’t it be incredible if your favorite book character came to life? This happens to bookworm Delilah in this book, and I can’t even imagine how awesome that would be!

7. Literally by Lucy Keating

It seems this is about a character becoming aware of the fact she is a character in a story and not a real person. I would be quite interested in reading this story, as I have never heard of one quite like this!

8. Traveler by L.E. DeLano

Hey, another one where characters come to life! This is more about characters than books, but I think it wounds quite good!

And… I only have eight today. I’m sure there are many more wonderful books about books, but I want to keep my list short and sweet! 🙂

Have you read any books about books? Did you enjoy any of the books I mentioned? Link me to your TTT!

  1. Ahhh, I love The Book Thief. But I fall into such a downer after reading it.

    You may like Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society! It’s set in WWII where a group of people on the Guernsey Islands create a book club to escape the Germans who occupy their town.


  2. I loved the Reader’s of Broken Wheel Recommend, by Katirina Bivald, a novel about a woman in Iowa and a young woman in Sweeden, Sara, connecting by mail over their love of literature and eventually try to meet. Sara is embraced by the town and is determined to pay them back with opening a bookstore. Within the novel there are great book recommendations and through it I discovered 84 Charring Cross Road, by Helen Hanff which is a series of actual letters sent by a book lover in the US to a book store in London, begging for affordable books. Her follow up was just as enjoyable, her diary, The Duchess of Bloomsbury. There is also the older novel The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler – turned into a popular movie.
