Bookish Tweets For Mental Health Day To Uplift Your Spirits

We meet again, bookish tweeters. Welcome to this week’s piece, and also, happy Mental Health Day! Then again, you probably already knew that just from the title of this piece, but in case you didn’t, now you know… Either way though, prepare to have your spirits – whether already high, dangerously low, or just about average – lifted as you go through all of these tweets until the very end, brought to you by SparkNotes!

(And in the very rare case that you are new here and have not been graced by SparkNotes’s fab Twitter presence, look down below for a YouTuber’s recent fan vid about it…)

 

 

With that cleared up, let’s get to it!

 

 

 

 

The Trojan War: Spoiler-Free Edition

As you can tell by this tweet’s title, welcome back to our “spoiler-free edition” series! However, instead of normally taking a well-known literary work and giving a few snapshots to those who never read it but would like an idea of what it entails, we’re taking a pretty well-known historical event – in this case, the Trojan War, which has taken place both before and within The Iliad and just before The Odyssey – and giving the newcomer a few shots to chew on, like these here…

 

 

Interesting how the last one with John Mulaney applies so well here! Probably even too well…

 

What’s Really Rotten In The State Of Denmark

If you have stuck around long enough to see my last bookish tweets entry, you may have come across a tweet having to do with a certain character’s toxic trait. Well, guess what: we’ve got another one for you…

 

 

Yeah Hamlet, try telling your girlfriend that. I’m sure she’ll take it really well…

 

Of Books And Titles

If you have even taken an English class in high school, you probably have read John Steinbeck’s Of Mice And Men in your freshman year. So, if you have read it all the way through, you likely have had wondered exactly why it’s called Of Mice And Men. Well, wait no longer, because here’s the answer to that question right now…

 

 

Maybe it’s supposed to be symbolic and not literal after all…

 

 

 

 

You Can’t Stop The Beat

If you are a fan of musicals – as I have been for the past few years but should’ve been for far longer – then you know that any sound you hear, any situation you’re in, can easily be turned into a musical number. And if you don’t know where I’m going with this, then just you wait…

 

 

-ing on the glass… I’m waving through a window! What? As far as we know, the raven’s real name could be Raven Hansen!

(Also, bonus points if you got all the musical references I made and if you sang all the while…)

 

The True Misérable

If you have been dating for a long time, you might have gotten someone like this…

 

 

Whether you’re still with them or not, just know that you are enough and deserve so much better, so you should never feel afraid turn this sort of terrible twosome into a miserable party of scum for one!

 

 

 

 

Sign Of The Times

Do you ever wonder how life was like back in your parents’ or even your grandparents’ day? Well, here’s this tweet to give you an idea…

 

 

My, how the times have changed!

 

Feigned Ignorance Is Bliss

You know that friend in your friend group that knows they should do something and how important it is but don’t do it anyway…

 

 

Just watch: in public, they’ll decide not to wear mask and not maintain six feet of distance. Then, they’ll know just important it is to do these things. (Seriously though: doing these things can and will save your life!)

Now, here’s a bonus tweet, formatted in such a way you may be familiar with…

 

Bonus Tweet: Signs Of The Times 

You may have seen something like this before, but it’s worth pointing how much you want something to go vs. what you actually get…

 

 

Don’t tell me you haven’t thought about it!

Finally, to cap off this special bookish tweets piece, I’ll just leave this all-too-relevant tweet right here for all of you to take in and enjoy without any sort of explanation – and I can assure you that once you get it, and you will after staring at it or thinking about it long enough, your spirits will fly, so high in fact that you will be busy sharing this with your friends and family, abuzz with conversation…
