I have to admit that I’m not on top of my Tumblr game… But one of my favorite things to peruse on Tumblr is a little thing called the “YA Lit Meme” or “YA Aesthetics“. I haven’t seen much of it on book blogs outside of Tumblr but every time I see one, I pretty much fall in love.
In case you’re not familiar with the masterpieces on Tumblr, YA Aesthetics are essentially photo collages (as well as other representations — but my favorites happen to be the collages) featuring physical representations of prominent things in the book — important places, what a character might look like or wear, special objects, even quotes. I’ve been dying to try my hand at one of my own so I did my first attempt selecting images for Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins! I love putting together graphics and images so hopefully this will be something you’ll be seeing around more often here! *takes deep breath* *crosses fingers* Tell me what you think!
YA AESTHETICS: ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS
It’s far from perfect but hey, it’s my first one. I sort of love it though! Can’t wait to keep working on more for other amazing novels!
And if you love collages for YA Lit, you should definitely check out What Sarah Read! She’s been creating photo collages for her reviews and they’re just lovely! I adore this one she did for PASSENGER by Alex Bracken!
