Valentine’s Day Bookish Tweets To Spread The Love

It’s Valentine’s Day, bookworms! Whether you have a sweetheart or a lovely group of gal pals to celebrate it with, or if you’re going about it solo with piles of books by your side, it is a day to spread love everywhere – in any form! So, here are some lovely bookish tweets that will just make you swoon with bookish love, and then afterward give your books the kind of love they deserve…

 

Just Playing Pretend…

You know how you’re going through a book (or a show, or a movie, perhaps even a comic book) and the characters that you really want to get together and be a couple are just taking forever to actually go for it? Well, that’s where role-play comes in…

 

 

Hey, don’t deny that you haven’t done something like this at least once in your childhood. Dolls, action figures, or even just drawings and dress-up, you can’t help but pretend! Let’s just hope that the editors can understand the readers’ shipping struggles expressed this way…

 

You Can Always Lean On Books… Literally!

Anyone who’s been an avid user on Twitter knows all about the Broom Challenge: trying to keep up a broom by just its bristles for as long as possible. (And this could even apply to other things as well; people have gotten creative and taken this challenge to a whole other level!) Well here, in case you’re feeling stuck, in the way that your broom isn’t, books can help you out – as if they haven’t already helped you out before – thanks to Penguin Random House’s ingenious idea…

 

 

As they can with brooms, books can keep you from falling, so whatever gets you down, just pick yourself right back up and let them be your guide! That is the power of books, which is all the more reason to give them some extra love on this love-day…

 

 

 

 

Together Forever(?)

Speaking of the power of books, remember the Steinbeck classic Of Mice And Men? Well, to their grief, someone certainly does…

 

 

You said it, Joey. Much like George and Lennie, or the ‘Friends’ gang, books will be there for you, even if there are some tough things that have to be done out of friendship and love (e.g., putting someone in a better, safer place, putting your friend in a box on Thanksgiving, killing off your favorite characters), anything that has to be done…

Also, in response to this tweet, someone recounted this story of someone they saw on a train ride, reading the ending of this very novel…

 

 

You would have to have a heart of steel if you can’t let the ending get the best of you in public, and that was exactly what this man did.

 

If you’re William Darcy, watch yourself: things could get a little awkward if you try to approach asking a girl out in this manner…

 

 

Not exactly what she would want, is it…? Maybe try getting her some flowers and chocolates instead? A little serenade wouldn’t hurt either… Just make sure you don’t mention anything about class or her sister in the lyrics though.

 

 

 

 

Let’s All Be Single Together!

Are you single and not necessarily ready to mingle, but you don’t want to be totally alone on Valentine’s Day? Well, be a Leslie Knope and get your gal-friends together for Galentine’s Day! And according to Random House, the idea of Galentine’s Day has taken over by storm…

 

 

Just the kind of tweet I wanted to read, for I am both beautiful and organized!

Also, if you want to read through the thread filled with stories depicting the kind of female friendships that you’re just dying to have on Galentine’s Day, then click on the tweet for so much more…

 

Sappho, The Hopeless Romantic

Everyone knows that love can make you do crazy things, and sometimes love can make you unfocused on anything but the one you love, unrequited or not, including the simplest things such as weaving…

 

 

Don’t worry, Sappho: I’m sure your “Ode to Aphrodite” has been heard…

 

 

 

 

The New Kind Of Flirting

Everyone has their own way of flirting, so it’s not always the party-goers that have game. Bookworms know how to start a conversation, even if they can’t help themselves…

 

 

I mean, if it works, then it doesn’t matter how it comes across, especially if the right person comes along and it just clicks like that. Just don’t be afraid to reach out to someone and ask them what books they’ve read; it’s not weird! (At least I hope not.)

And to close this love-and-tweet-filled article, a special bonus tweet!

 

Bonus Tweet: Planning For V-Day Or D-Day?

Nobody can do date night better than Gatsby can…

 

 

…or better yet, maybe I can think of some others that don’t involve dying, yet when it comes to classic literature, isn’t that usually always the case (sadly)? RIP Gatsby: if only you gave yourself the kind of love that you were more than willing to give to Daisy…

Learn from Gatsby, and spend this Valentine’s Day with lots of self-love, as much as the love you have for your books! Happy Heart Day…
