Bookish Tweets For The End Of November – And Cyber Monday!

Hey, long time, no see, bookish tweeters! Hope you’ve all had a good Thanksgiving, and just remember this: Be thankful for the family you have in your life, and even if you can’t be with them during this time, take the time to let them know how much you care for them while you can, if you can.

So, with all that said, here’s a hearty meal of a week and a half’s worth of bookish tweets headed your way to have with your Thanksgiving leftovers. (Oh, and be careful not to break the internet while loading up and reading through this tweets-piece as it is Cyber Monday today…)

 

 

 

 

The Best Fighter You’ve Ever Known

You know that one person in your life that’s always looking for something to fight about? What is their deal? And they even brag about being the toughest fighter around. In fact – and I’m only guessing here – perhaps at one point, they may have said something like this…

 

 

Not to mention that their grammar may be a bit off too. Wow, they really need to venture out more.

 

Esrever Ni Tup

Did you or someone you know ever want to go back to simpler times when everything was great and actually did? No? Well, there’s someone I’d like you to meet…

 

 

Warning: side effects may include nausea, disillusionment, very probable death, followed by an immediate water burial. (Also, shout out to those who got the title for this tweet…)

Oh, and in case you haven’t noticed, other than being the second tweet of this piece overall, this is the second tweet that features a certain Toby Maguire!

 

 

Yes, yes we do, Toby…

 

Nobody’s Fool

If you’ve ever ventured out to meet new people, romantically or not, chances are, at one point or another, you’ve met someone like this in your life…

 

 

Hold onto them for as long as you can, because they will what will change the world someday!

 

 

 

 

What’s The Rush?

Sometimes, you just know when it’s your time to go. Don’t mince my words: I am not condoning throwing in the towel on life like *snap* that, but I’m referring to that gut feeling you have when you just want to get it all over with. It’s one thing to just feel it within you, and it’s a whole other thing to actually act on that feeling, and then it’s a whole other other thing when there’s someone who lets you know that they’ll take care of that for you…

 

 

Typical response from a true emo.

 

An Unreliable Reference

Whenever you apply for a job, the application asks you how you came across the job posting, and you’re given a list of potential job sites that could’ve referred you to it, and then there’s the fill-in option listed as “Other” and here’s what you don’t fill in…

 

 

Oh, and you might not want to mention it in the interview for it either! Too late? Yikes.

 

The Cask Of Amontillado: Spoiler-Free Edition

Wow, it’s been a long time since the last time we’ve done this! For those of you new to my tweets-pieces, there are recurring tweets that are in a “Spoiler-Free Edition” series I’ve come up with a while back, where you give you a few snapshots of a certain literary work to give you an idea of what happens in case you haven’t or are currently reading it. So, for this one, we’ll be doing The Cask Of Amontillado, by Edgar Allen Poe, and here are your snapshots…

 

 

Wait, you were able to figure out how the story goes? Oops, well then… That’s what you get for giving out flashes of a short story as opposed to those of a full-length novel.

 

 

 

 

Make It Come Alive

I’m sure you can relate to this: You’re working on a project you’re really passionate about and you’ve put all of yourself into, but something goes (horribly) wrong and then this happens…

 

 

Yeah, I know that feeling. Just give yourself time to calm down, and you’ll be back on track with your– wait, where did it go?

 

As Is Tradition

To reiterate what I said at the start of the piece, it doesn’t matter how you spend the holidays, even if it has to be apart from your loved ones for the time being, as long as you find a way to make it work and keep the spirit of the holiday alive by sticking to what you can control…

 

 

It just takes some readjusting, that’s all! This is for your father – your true family – after all…

 

With The Utmost Ardent Love…

You know, I have given out a ton of suggestions how to sign off emails you may be sending out to your colleagues or your friends and family, but I’ve never given you any that were tailored specifically to Jane Austen works…

 

 

I hope you’ll love these ardently!

And now for dessert, a couple of bonus tweets from after the Thanksgiving break…

 

Trouble In Paradise?

Ever wonder how authors get their ideas for their works? To imagine that a long work of fiction was once just a few stirrings of the author’s imagination from long ago is unreal…

 

 

…or maybe even an imagined take on a centuries-old origin story from the Bible, but either way, the things writers come up with today, it really is amazing. (Note to aspiring writers: Consider this your inspiration to sit yourself down to write today!)

 

Fall Of The Mighty (And Heavy)

Be careful what you say to people now, unless you want your patterns of bad behavior to catch up to you down the road…

 

 

My my, how the table has turned… and turned… and turned… and by table, I mean boulder.
