September Book Photo Challenge

Day 9 : Favorite Cover

So as you can see, I cannot choose just one. I got six books here from my collection that I think have the most gorgeous cover. They are so beautiful and I love looking at them.

September Book Photo Challenge— Day 18 “Recommended to Me” 
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
I must confess I’ve never read any Neil Gaiman. My friend recommended this one to me because of my love for mythology. I’m hoping to get to it soon.

We’re funny, okay?

THIS IS EXCELLENT except I have to disagree with one point: Jane Austen wouldn’t be hella annoying on social media - she’d just be trolling all the time.

Hemingway would also have some major MRA backers probably. He wouldn’t be one (he’d just be a regular misogynistic bastard) but his followers would be harassing anyone who called it out.

Faulkner has no use for twitter and his blog posts are interminable.

Robert Frost’s Instagram tho.

And Poe and Lovecraft trying to outdo each other with Two-Sentence Horror Stories.

And Elizabeth Bishop, Emily Dickinson, and Sylvia Plath deliberately trolling MRAs.

And Polidori would tag “@DevilEnglishman” in every. Single. Post, trying to start a twitter war in the hopes of gaining followers.
