If you’re living that book life, these tweets are gonna make a whole lot of sense to you. They’re funny and exactly on-point.
So let’s take a deep dive into funny book tweets. Who knew there were so many?!?!

I’d just like everyone to know that one of my pals thinks “what a sad little life Jane” is a quote from Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë and not from the greatest ever ending to come dine with me
