Bookish Tweets To Give Your Valentine (DELUXE)

Hey there, Bookish Tweeters! Wow, it’s been such a long time (again) since the last couple tweets-pieces I dished out last month…

So, while it’s still the loveliest day of the year (at least according to the Hallmark card/candy industry), here is not just any regular tweets-piece; in fact, it’s not even the first of two parts of a singularly-themed tweets-piece – rather, this is a deluxe V-Day tweets-piece, which I’m sure will make up for all the bookish tweets goodness you’ve missing… of course, with a few bonus tweet-treats saved at the end as a reward for sticking on through!

Anyway, lovebirds and singlets combined (I’m not here to judge), let’s begin, shall we??

 

 

 

 

The (Real) Witch-Hunt Begins

While spreading a virus is undeniably deadly, people underestimate just how dangerous spreading something as small as a rumor can be: It can all start with one person who heard from a friend who heard from another friend who heard from their friends… and so on. I just wonder how that old tradition started anyway…

 

 

Oh, right, the rumor of rumors: a rumor so deadly that it can mean a matter of… well, death!

 

The True Villain

You know when you come across a character and you automatically know whether or not they’re the villain? Try this one on for size…

 

 

So, which one is the real villain? I guess we’ll never know…

 

The Most Prophetic Of Them All…

As devoted bookworms, we tend to connect our books to the real world – and vice-versa. So, this no doubt can more than apply to us as a whole…

 

 

Careful though, because this might end up turning into The Hunger Games… (We’d better hope it doesn’t eventually come to that IRL!)

 

The True Evil

You know how there’s that one person in your life who is always causing drama for the sake of drama and does whatever they can to get their way with no regard for anyone else’s well-being?

 

 

Yeah, no kidding!

(Plus, there’s plenty more Hamlet in this piece where that one came from…)

 

Email Marketing 101: Jane Austen Edition

So, you want to write a formal email, Jane Austen style… The main trick is to stop thinking of your recipients as your next sales to close and as real people, and really get the heart of the matter. Here is just one example on how to do just that…

 

 

See? Very personable, so really show them that you care…

(P.S. This isn’t the last you’ll see a Persuasion tweet in this cornucopia of tweets…)

 

 

 

 

The Alarm Clock You Always Wanted

While I don’t wish this on anybody, chances are: you’ve had a stalker at least once in your life…

 

 

…only in this case, I’m not sure how you can report a raven to the authorities… Look at it this way: at least you’d get an alarm clock you don’t have to pay for… at night.

 

All in the (Long) Timing

I don’t know about you, but one of my reading pet peeves is when some authors don’t get to the point fast enough when they have to – and then get there too quickly when they don’t have to…

 

 

And that’s not all…

 

 

Hmmm, when you put it like that, I wonder how long this whole tweets-piece would take if it were timed out…

 

It’s All (Book) Logic!

I’m sure you know that when you grow up watching cartoons, certain things happen on TV that don’t necessarily happen IRL (usually based on science, circumstance, or anything else), and we just blame it on cartoon logic. Books on the other hand…

 

 

…they just don’t make sense!

 

You Had One(ish) Job!

Whenever you ask someone to do something and they don’t exactly get it exactly the way you wanted them to do it…

 

 

Well, at least he tried! (Technically, he originally didn’t mean for it all to end up in death, including himself, but still, he gave it the best he got, so… yay?)

 

Preaching From The Choir?

That group of bystanders who just watches everything unfold in front of them and does nothing to help…

 

 

Hey, if you ask me, I’ll just say this: If you’re not gonna help, don’t show up at all! Moral of the story: Don’t be a bystander!

 

It Just Doesn’t Work That Way!

When the outcome of the rules doesn’t exactly apply to you as it does for someone else…

 

 

Haters gonna hate, so deal with it, Phantom…

 

 

 

 

The Needy, Desperate Friend

When that one friend in your friend group tries to include everyone else in your drama…

 

 

It’s not always about you, Menelaus! (That is, unless your wife just so happens to be the living embodiment of Greece, so in that case, we leave at dusk for Troy.)

 

Can I Have A Second Opinion?

When you have a problem and talk to your counselor/therapist about it, and they offer you this piece of advice…

 

 

You want my advice? Ask to draw up a contract to sign first, and then you have the right to sue!

 

A Matter Of Blending In

When your effortless disguise to blend in with the others works like a charm…

 

 

Perhaps a little too well…

 

Hermit Is Where The Heart Is

When the other try to force you out to socialize – in the pre-COVID times – but you really just want to stay in all day…

 

 

I couldn’t tell you enough how much this one hits me hard on so many levels…

Now that we’ve gone through more than a heavy helping of a too-long-overdue 15-tweet course meal, now comes time for some delicious tweet-treats… or as I call them: the bonus Valentine’s Day(ish)-themed tweets! 

 

Bonus Tweet #1: A Look From Afar

I think this one more than applies to this day – or even any holiday or special occasion…

 

 

If it works out, you now found someone to give that card to!

 

Bonus Tweet #2: A Close Heart-Call

When that special boo gets your heart pumping like crazy…

 

 

…and by boo, I mean your conscience because that murder you committed – though the boo could have been from the ghost of the guy you just killed…

 

Bonus Tweet #3: Halves Of A Whole

If you’re in a relationship, there’s no getting around this…

 

 

…though sometimes, it’s not always 50/50, because we’re not always at our 100%, so if it means going the extra mile (one if by land, two if by sea), go for it if you have to for the one you love!

 

Bonus Tweet #4: A Poem For The Ages

As a lover of poetry (and a bit of a hopeless romantic), I can attest that if you want to sweep a hopeless romantic right off their feet, nothing can beat a well-written love poem…

 

 

Wow, thanks… but I think I’ll take my chances with Darcy.

 

 

Bonus Tweet #5: A Vacay Trip To Remember

Other than this bookish tweets-piece, need a last-minute Valentine’s Day gift? Consider this…

 

 

As long as you don’t look at her (good intentions or not), then she’ll love it so much, she might be willing to stay forever!

Happy (late) Valentine’s Day, everyone! And hope it’s as filled with love as is this deluxe-sized bookish tweets-piece…
