Harry as Books

Hey, youths! Have you ever sat in an English class while a teacher droned on and on and on about some stupid book that's supposed to be an "important piece of literature" and you were so bored that you started imagining that the book actually starred Harry Styles just so you would get through the lecture?

Well, first of all you better stop thinking like that and pay attention because books and literature will change your life. You just might not know it yet.

And second of all, there is now a Twitter account called Literary Harry that puts One Direction's long-haired, tiny-shorts-wearing, tattooed bay boy into classic and contemporary novels. It's truly magical. Nay, it's an Internet masterpiece.

The Twitter account, started by clever young lady named Emily, opened our eyes to the fact that Harry Styles is basically a walking, talking book cover. Pride and Prejudice? Yep. American Psycho? Of course. Game of Thrones? Sure. Harold and the Purple Crayon, our personal favorite? Duh.

"He ruins the lives of high school students everywhere," reads the Twitter bio. It makes sense, because Harry is so handsome from so many angles and does so many photogenic things with his body that if he was starring in a book that high school kids are required to read, he'd be the brooding heartbreaker that readers hate to love. He's Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights, Holden in Catcher in the Rye and Ian Fleming's James Bond.

If those characters were also in a boy band. Now there's a crossover book franchise we can totally get behind.

Literary Harry is also on Tumblr, and you can even submit requests to Emily for your favorite books in case you are dying to see if he truly belongs in Fifty Shades of Grey. Or should we say, Fifty Shades of Harry?
