Because isn’t your day better when you hear Tom Hiddleston reading Shakespeare?
Tom Hiddleston - Yes we know he’s not a book
Last week we received the following request: "Could you recommend a book for Tom Hiddleston fans about a character similar to him?"
Well, we can certainly try….
A Room With A View by E.M. Forster for a gentleman hero determined to follow true love in the face of Edwardian-era social convention
The Amateur Cracksman by E.W. Hornung for A.J. Raffles, a Victorian gentleman and master thief, a sort of criminal cousin to Sherlock Holmes
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern for a hero who conjures Tom’s charisma and complexity
The Orphan Master’s Son by Adam Johnson for a hero who remains a true gentleman under exceptionally difficult circumstances
And if these don’t do it for you, why not listen to Tom reading classic poetry
barbara park, the author of that junie b jones series you probably read in kindergarten and first grade, died today. i feel like it’s necessary to make a post about this because those books are some of the first i consciously remember reading and that inspired me to find joy in books. and it’s honestly just really sad because i loved those books okay everyone come be sad now
i think it is also important to mention that she was only 66 and died of ovarian cancer. she “helped found a charitable organization, Sisters in Survival, to raise money for women with ovarian cancer. Random House announced that contributions can be made here.” (source)
