Bookish Tweets For Both Juneteenth & Father’s Day (DELUXE)

Very long time, no see, my ever-so-loyal Bookish Tweeters! Happy (belated) Juneteenth AND Father’s Day, everyone! Not only is it Father’s Day today, but also yesterday was Juneteenth, a day which had finally been made a federal holiday, usually giving workers time off (if during the week) to reflect on how far we’ve come and move forward to do more good and better for this nation.

Anyway, I know I’ve been very MIA on these bookish tweets-pieces for the past month or so, which is why this is yet another massive bookish tweets meal for you all to chow down on because you’ve more than earned it for waiting this long for all this goodness. So, let’s get to it!

 

 

 

 

All I Ask Of You

When life hands you a literary reference…

 

 

…I would say just take it and run with it, but in this case, run away from it before it crushes you!

 

Words of the Wise

If you ever feel like you need deep, thought-provoking words of wisdom from one of the greatest minds that ever lived…

 

 

It’s timeless because it’s something we can all relate to time and again!

 

Too Far in the Sun

Just a gentle reminder that if you ever feel too down on yourself that’s outside of what is normal or you just haven’t been feeling like yourself for a long while (especially after a loss), you should always feel the need to bring up these feelings to a well-trusting adult…

 

 

Ahem, I said “well-trusting adult”!

 

The Not-Much-Good, The Bad, and the Really Ugly

When you’re rooting for the only good, pure-of-heart character in a deeply-bleak fictional world and then this happens…

 

 

I believe I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Why must the good die young?!

 

Uncut Gems

When there’s diamond of a scene hidden in plain sight within your very favorite classic novel…

 

 

How did this not get talked about as much as almost everything else? This is comedy gold right here and speaks a lot to the common introvert’s struggle of putting themselves out there to win their crushes over! (Whether you think I mean either Daisy or Nick as Gatsby’s crush, that is up to you…)

And speaking of trying to fit into the party mold…

 

Party Pooper

Someone else isn’t too happy about the way you presented yourself at their party…

 

 

…though to be fair, the party don’t start till the Hob’ walks in…

 

Any Plans Tonight?

Also up on things introverts can easily relate to…

 

 

Nothing like a good ol’ fashioned recharge with a plate of food, a cup of tea, and a good long nap if I do say so myself!

 

 

 

 

Get to the Point

When someone is telling you a story, and then comes to but just casually buries the main lead…

 

 

Looks like Marlow wasn’t with Shakespeare that day in the pub to talk him out of that very brief plot point…

 

Gotta Get Up and Try

When you try your best, but you don’t succeed…

 

 

Okay, maybe it wasn’t his absolute best, but at the end of the day, he still tried… (Whether he tried to succeed in reanimating a corpse or to prevent it from terrorizing the whole village, again I will leave that up to you…)

 

The Kindness of Strangers

When any of your elders try to tell you about the good ol’ days before social media came around and “ruined” everything…

 

 

Better find out soon before those ducks hit you square in the face, because in that case: better watch out…

 

Can’t Help Falling In Love

You know how wise men say “only fools rush in” when it comes to falling in love? Why is that when there is a magic potion to give someone so they’d have no choice but to fall in love? Those fools should’ve gotten a hold of this when they had the chance…

 

 

Available at any enchanted forest near you for every fool in need of a Bottom out there…

 

What Doesn’t Kill You…

When dating (especially after having some bad experiences in the past), it’s important to spot all the telltale bad signs in your previous relationships so you can steer clear of them in the future…

 

 

By doing this, you’re just several steps closer to landing your perfect partner, who will hopefully not put you in harm’s way in trying to make you theirs and theirs alone!

 

You Said It, Not Me!

When you know someone’s being misled, but you don’t want to tell them they’re being misled…

 

 

Only in Macbeth’s case, he just assumes no one can defeat him and runs off before the witches could tell him anything else, leaving them in as much a lurch as any other misbelieved prophet…

The Witches (had Macbeth stayed much longer): Are we a joke to you?

 

To Apply or Not to Apply

When applying for jobs, it’s key to think back on your past experiences on projects and look at them in a whole new light in terms of transferrable skills employers typically look for…

 

 

If only Hamlet had lived to tell his tale of almost-triumph so he could land that sweet side gig…

 

 

 

 

Love (and Death) at First Sight

Tired of trying to meet people via a dating app or anywhere else online? For me, the connection with others just wouldn’t be the same. Try doing this instead…

 

 

This way, you would just cut to the chase – quite literally – of meeting someone new, marrying them, and dying by their side! (Note: This dating method is certainly not suitable for everyone.)

 

Eat, Pray, Verify

When you want to be taken more seriously so you decide to get verified online…

 

 

Sure, you may be verified on Twitter (and anywhere else online), but are you verified in your own eyes? (You thought you knew where this was going, but consider your own expectations subverted!)

 

I’m with (Fake) Stupid

When one part of a classic novel never quite matches up in any of the film adaptations…

 

 

At least there’s Young Frankenstein which implements that little tidbit, am I right?? (Though the creature and Frankenstein’s descendant had to swap brain juice, but he still got there!)

 

What You Say vs. How You Say It

We may have gone over this before, but here we are again, this time exploring how Tolkien typically wrote his works…

 

 

Who could hold a candle to how Tolkien could describe a fake tree’s history vs. how a fake sport was invented by our hero?

 

Pick an Icon, Any Icon

I’d like for anyone to name me one fictional character from classic literature that is easily relatable by any generation and demographic. I’ll wait…

 

 

Come to think of it, there really should be a character death battle between Hamlet and Holden Caulfield! Why isn’t this talked about as much, I ask you?!

 

An Ode to What’s There

As a poetry-lover, sometimes I wonder how the great poets from the past and even today ever managed to get their material from…

 

 

The more you know about the world around you, the more potential you have of being a poet…

 

Everything’s Coming Up Bloody

It’s crucial for every couple, no matter what stage their relationship may be in, to check in with each other to make sure everything’s going swimmingly – that their ship is a healthy ship…

 

 

You know, I actually forgot that Juliet and Paris were cousins by blood, and her parents talked of marrying those two off? And Paris actually loved Juliet like that? Wow, such different times…
