It looks like it is turning out to be another busy week for me, but I just wanted to show you all (whoever is reading) this great Buzzfeed article I came across this morning – 51 of The Most Beautiful Sentences in Literature as suggested by the general public, I believe.
There’s something inexplicable about a really well written sentence that I love. The really good ones make me put a book down for a second to pause and enjoy them. This list covers everything from Russian Literature to Where The Wild Things Are to general YA books and Harry Potter (Dumbledore, of course) to American classics. It covers the whole field.
So take a break from your busy day to scroll through and see if any of these sentences give you that inexplicable happy feeling. Happy Wednesday!
How have two weeks passed already without any kind of posts whatsoever? Well, I’ve been pretty busy balancing everything in my life (everything being editing, babysitting, hanging out with people, eating food etc. etc. etc.). Fridays, which I guess have unofficially turned in to my blog post days (that and Monday) have been a bit busy lately too, so those are my excuses.
I do have a few posts up my sleeve – I just haven’t had a chance to sit down and write them yet, so hopefully that will happen in the next couple of weeks. I have a few new reads and a few old reads that I haven’t talked about yet to review, so keep an eye out.
But in the meantime, I thought i would share a few fun links I came across during my wanderings on the interwebs.
First of all there is this buzfeed article filled with bookish goodness. I approve of their use of Gilmore Girls, 10 Things I hate about You, HP, and Beauty and the Beast, so it has that going for it.
There is also this article from The Guardian on how much your brain absorbs with an e-reader as opposed to with a paper book, which the psychology minor in me found pretty interesting. Enjoy and I’d love to hear your thoughts.
