Today, instead of creating a completely unique post of my own making, I’m sharing with you some of my favorite bookish things for book lovers from around the web! (and I made a fun graphic)
So, enjoy my favorites and don’t forget to link up your amazing posts at the end of the post for this week’s edition of the Lit Lovers Link Party!
These are my favorite bookish things for book lovers right now:
This quiz from Buzzfeed Books asks us to identify classic literature based on the book’s original title (hint, most original titles are quite lame). This is what quiz dreams are made of.
Mashups not as popular these days, which makes me sad because I loved them. This one asking if you can tell who said it between Pepe Le Pew and Christian Grey is one of my favorites.
Last Tuesday was International Literacy Day. The wonderful ladies at Chapter Break are sharing a fun infographic about reading, books, and literacy.
A Book: The Martian
I just finished reading The Martian, and I really enjoyed it! I loved the simplicity of it and the back-to-basics kind of story structure. These days, I’m not as much into sweeping fantasy-like space environments in my science fiction- I prefer things that could actually happen. I appreciated the challenging science and math in the book (according to an interview I read with the author he actually calculated most of the math himself, which is above and beyond what most authors do, for sure!) and it even made me laugh a few times.
All in all, a fun read. If you like realistic style science fiction, definitely give it a read before the movie comes out!
This fits the theme of science fiction space exploration:
“As for me, I am tormented with an everlasting itch for things remote. I love to sail forbidden seas, and land on barbarous coasts.”
― Herman Melville, Moby-Dick
A Bookish Item
I was given this Game of Thrones dragon egg necklace as a perk for being a contributing writer to Project Nerd, and I love it. It’s strangely heavy, which is awesome, and it contains a USB data stick inside, which is even more awesome. Geek tech inside fashion is the best kind of accessory.
