#candylit Sweetens the Twittersphere


This past weekend, an event of historical import occurred: the #candylit hashtag on Twitter.

Started by Lincoln Michel with a “Fall of the House of Gushers” pun, it combined book titles with the names of confectionery treats.

BuzzFeed Books rounded up a few of their favorites, including the Rumpus’s “Dubli-nerds by James Almond Joyce” gag, and mocked up some delectable-looking book covers.
