Aesthetic words and phrases

(I drew this @crearantine :-))

I am a big fan of literature and creative writing, and so it is natural that I should have a list of my favourite words. If you’re also interested in language and literature, or perhaps are in desperate need for some inspiration, then you are welcome to check out this list of words I find incredible for some reason. Some of them have a beautiful or fun meaning, and some of them just either look or sound aesthetically pleasing. A lot of the words are taken from the Anne of Green Gables book series. My original list is longer because my first language is Danish, but I figured that most readers on here do not speak Danish anyway, so I edited it to exclusively contain English words.

Ps. I’m sorry that there’s no definition for the unusual words, but you can look it up if you’re interested :-)

  • Exquisite

  • Wonders never cease

  • Bought (in a British accent)

  • Starlight/stardust

  • Wildflowers

Hope you found some new favourite words, or maybe got inspired to read a bit. If you do want to read something, then again, a lot of these words are from the Anne of Green Gables book series, and if you are the type that likes word lists and follows SparkNotes on Twitter, then you will probably like the books. Just saying.

Read on, dears <3
