5 Memes About Reading Books to Make You Laugh

One of my favorite things about sharing a common love of reading with other individuals is the community that arises around various stories and genres. It’s just nice having someone who can get why a story left you curled up in emotional agony because it’s entirely possible that this person had a similar reaction. We might talk about it in person, or we might have a heated argument on a forum. Regardless though, there are multiple ways to express this love for books and stories.

And one way that people share this love is through memes.

Oh yeah. Here are five memes about books and reading to make you laugh.

If a book can make you feel strong emotions, then it’s doing a good job. If I am sitting on the floor, crying because nothing is going right for the main character in a story, then the book is doing a good job. If I absolutely despise the antagonist, then the book is doing a good job. If the story keeps me riveted and emotionally invested in a fictional character’s life, then…you get the idea.

This is basically what it looked like every time I ordered my textbooks online. There was that one time I ordered an encyclopedia that was so thick, the mail carrier came to my door, gave the package to my roommate, and then said, “I swear, I didn’t open this. The book was so big the package wouldn’t stay shut.”

Part of me loves reading books where I care about the characters and their plights. The other part of me fears it because I know how quickly things can go wrong in stories and that eventually, the tale will end. Don’t get me wrong: stories need to end at some point. Be that after the first book or the fourteenth, I genuinely think that a story needs to conclude. That doesn’t make it easy though, and I most certainly will go through a period of mourning.

Even though I try to invest my full energy into books, sometimes this happens. It’s even worse when I realize that it hasn’t just been one page… it has been twenty.

When I’m interrupted while reading, I’m interrupted frequently. It once took me fifteen minutes to finish two pages because I was interrupted four times.

5 ‘The Witcher’ Memes to Feast Your Eyes On

Now that the The Witcher has dropped on Netflix, fans have been busy putting together memes to share on the internet. And, naturally, a ton of these are hilarious.

While I can’t unearth every single meme that this franchise has inspired, I can most certainly share a few of the ones that I felt hit their mark. Here are five Witcher memes to peruse and enjoy!

Regardless of if you want to be held by book Geralt, game Geralt, or Henry Cavill’s Geralt, I think this meme sums up a hidden mutual longing that we all possess. Need I say more?

This is a fun take on the meme of the woman yelling at the cat. We all know that Jaskier (Dandelion) drives Geralt up a wall, and in the Netflix adaptation, we got to see that at full force. This meme definitely conjures up memories of episode 6. Typically, this meme has bolded text above it explaining why the encounter is even taking place, but I couldn’t resist sharing it as it was.

This meme has circulated the internet quite a bit already, but I still think it’s absolutely fantastic. Did I binge the entire season in one day? Yes. Yes I did. Did I put off my responsibilities? Yes. Did my family wonder why I had gone awfully quiet all of a sudden? Yes. Do I regret it? Nah.

We all know the song at this point, now don’t we? We all know the word play at work here. Am I going to go listen to the song on repeat for an hour? Ha. Try three. Go big or go home.

If I have to live with the reality that the next season is coming out in 2021, then so does everyone else! While I didn’t share this meme primarily out of spite, I did share it because I think most fans had a similar emotional response after a long binge. Fans of the adaptation will have to, indeed, wait until 2021 before the second season drops. So what should we do in the meantime? Well, crying is a pretty good option. Rereading the books is there too. I’m on my second watch of the Netflix series at the moment, so not all hope is lost.

Five Times SparkNotes Twitter Proved They Get It

Who hasn’t needed SparkNotes at some point? Who else can tell you that one character’s name you forgot? If you don’t know by now, I’m obsessed with SparkNotes‘ twitter. Every tweet is a work of absolute genius. From god-tier memes to incredibly hot takes, SparkNotes’ twitter never disappoints. As we look down the barrel of a new decade, let’s take a look at the most mindblowingly relevant of their recent tweets.

 

And it’s Gender Neutral!

 

Sure, the original context wasn’t explicitly romantic, but it’s really something you can make your own. Who doesn’t want to be cool, feared, and respected? Think about it. And the implication that your very own calamity is a dragon? I’d be incredibly flattered. How could you not be? That way you’re not just saying your lover is great, they know you think they’re great. You’re telling them they’re powerful and feared in the local land. Goals.

 

 

Who’s Who?

 

The only thing that matters – which person in your relationship tries to kill the king and then panics, and which actually just finishes the job? Because listen. It’s important that one of you be able to get things started and set the ball rolling, or you’ll never get things done. At the same time, some people just aren’t great at finishing projects. Conclusions are tough. Momentum isn’t going to get you there. Someone needs to be more detail oriented. Detail obsessed. Wash their hands over and over.

 

 

I Can Relate

 

Okay, so only two of those things are true about me, but all of them are said. Do you love the sea? Are you probably a ghost? Avoid making appearances, especially during the day. Congratulations! You might be the Flying Dutchman, or another legendary ghost ship! Actually, you could be a vampire. Or just English and Victorian. All three? That’s a dream. Maybe THE dream. I’m not a ghost hunter or anything, but I might BE a ghost.

 

 

Red Flags

 

As we approach the decade that has, in advance, been termed the ‘screaming’ 20s, let’s avoid the pitfalls of the roaring 20s. And especially any choice ever made by Daisy Buchanan. Consider her an object lesson, actually. Don’t take up with lying military men. Don’t bail on them to marry guys who suck. Don’t then STAY with those guys when no one even expects you to. Don’t lead said military man on again years later. Definitely don’t commit vehicular manslaughter.

 

 

Awareness is Key

 

Hey. We know better than to call him foul creature. We’re beyond that. We have to be. But the rest of these are real. The Kids use them all the time. I mean, I’ll double check with my baby sister, but I feel pretty confident. it’s the sort of thing The Kids would definitely text about. Especially the last one. See? SparkNotes is always relevant. This is the cutting edge.

Five ‘Carry On’ Memes I Totally Hate

Have there ever been a more wonderful pair of fools than Simon Snow and Baz Pitch? How I love them. And in honor of Wayward Son‘s recent release, here are some memes to help us reflect on their past nonsense. And what nonsense there was!

 

Inviting Trouble

This couldn’t be more true. How does no one believe Simon that Baz is a vampire? He has a total vampire name! When I found out he wasn’t born a vampire to a vampire family my mind was actually blown. What type of wizard name is Grimm-Pitch? It’s the most suspicious name on earth! I guess you get what you ask for when naming your children, honestly. Was that his father’s name or something? I don’t remember, but they shouldn’t have been surprised with how things turned out.

 

 

No, I Didn’t Say Anything

He’s totally my worst enemy. I hate him with a passion. Worst person I know. God I hate him so much. It consumes me. Friends? No, all I have is a need for blood and incredibly intense feelings for Simon Snow. Feelings of hatred! Totally hatred. Can’t stand him. Why haven’t I used my extensive connections to get a new roommate? Can’t. Because… bureaucracy? I can’t even tell you how much I hate him. Snow! Snow, wake up! I hate you. Do you know how much I hate you?

 

 

Maybe Just This Once

God, there are good cliches and bad ones, aren’t there? And as much as I’m a person who hates things, I hear that they think they hate each other but they realize they’re secretly in love? And I am IN. Just because it’s been done before doesn’t mean it’s not an amazing thing to happen! And isn’t it all in the execution? Ben Wyatt meme – It’s about the LONGING. Throw in some magic, and I’m OBVIOUSLY in.

 

 

Totally the Worst

Oh, I just think about him every second. In a super platonic way. I mean, I hate him! But like, as a friend. Not a friend! We’re totally enemies. Who does this guy think he’s fooling, besides Simon? People have to be rolling their eyes SO hard every time they talk about how much they hate each other. Like, SURE. We get it. You totally HATE him. How did they keep them as roommates? Between the constant violence and the obvious attraction, they should NOT be roommates.

 

 

Solves Everything

WARNING: Please do not try this at home. I don’t want to be responsible for that. I also don’t think that pushing your student loan debt down the stairs would help very much. It might make you feel better though! Ok, try it at home but only with inanimate objects you don’t mind getting knocked around. Never with your roommate you’re secretly in love with. For that you might have to try and save the world.
