In which we share our bookish word clouds

Yesterday, believe it or not, was World Book Day. You might have read about it, when it was the #1 and #2 trending topic.




Or maybe you missed it. We’ll just assume you had your nose in a book the entire time and say no more.


To celebrate the wonderful day, we created some very special, bookish word clouds.


How are they special? Thanks for asking.


Here’s what we did:

We went to Goodreads

We found some of our favourite books

We looked at the top-rated quotes from those books

We tracked the most common words used in those quotes

We created a word cloud, using a relevant shape for each book


The result:

The Fault in our Stars


Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows


The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time


The Road


Where the Wild Things Are


Charlie and the Chocolate Factory


The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe


The Hobbit
