The Emotionary: A Dictionary of Words That Don't Exist for Feelings That Do
by Eden Sher Author and Julia Wertz Author
Dissconstrue means to misconstrue someone's word's as disrespectful or offensive. Deliberhate is to consciously choose anger over empathy. Lonesanity is the insanity caused by spending too much time alone. Fauxbration is when you felt your phone vibrate but it definitely didn't. This book is a work of portmanteau genius (portmangenius?). These definitions of until-now unnamed emotional states are accompanied by Julia Wertz's multi-panel comics, showing situations in which these words apply... the whole package is hilarious.
