We bookworms pride ourselves in knowing a ton of literary facts. Somehow, we keep them all stored in our brains with a ton of other things that might be useful... one day. Well, today's your day bookworm! Test your smarts by deciding if these literary facts are true or false!
The number of characters that J.K. Rowling created in the Harry Potter series is impressive: It's hard to keep track of them all! They each have their own distinct personalities, likes, and dislikes.
Are you a hopeless romantic? So are these two famous men. One is real and one is fictional, but they both say some crazy, unreal stuff. Can you tell the difference between what pop star heartthrob Justin Bieber has said, and what controversial heartthrob Christian Grey has said?
So it's a Friday night and you're all alone. Your friends are all hanging out without you, your crush is busy, and your parents are already asleep. So who do you turn to? You could just watch that new show on TV, but why not party with a literary character?
When we finish a book, we feel accomplished. Once it's over, we usually marvel at how many pages we were able to read. One thing we never consider is the number of words we read! I'm sure the authors were conscious of the words they were typing or writing out.
Let's be honest here: Disney movies are amazing and the best thing to ever happen to us as humans. I'm one of those people that listens to the songs from Disney movies just as much as regular music, if not more.
Congratulations on making it past the first part of our Disney quote quiz! There's still a ways to go before proving true Disney fandom, though.
Emojis or emoticons are little pictures that can be used in place of emotions or objects. In this day and age, they add a little bit of flare to our text messages, instant messages, tweets, and everything else on the internet you can think of.
Having excellent grammar is difficult. Even the grammar experts forget some of the rules, it just happens! If grammar isn't your specialty, those tests in school might have been challenging. We like to think of it like a puzzle... a long, wordy puzzle.
In the pantheon of literary families, the Brontë sisters are among the greatest in classic literature. We're glad that there wasn't much excitement in the English countryside other than the occasional walk into town, because then who knows if they would have written as much as they did.
Yes, we know- it’s fun to hate on adaptations. We feel proud, as book lovers, to say “the book was so much better than the movie”, even if the movie wasn’t all bad.
A Disney movie is a magical combination of song, dance, and general life inspiration. So many quotes from these classic cartoons are inspirational and memorable. From Snow White to Moana, if you can't quote a line from the movie, are you really a fan?!
Without context, song lyrics can look a lot like prose or poetry, which is why it may be hard to tell the difference between them. You'd also be surprised at how many lines of prose sound so musical, they might as well be lyrics!
It's easy to guess a book after having a full description of the plot, or the name of a character. The books that really make an impact on us, however, are the ones that we can recognize from an extremely obscure description.
