YA Aesthetics: Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

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 re-reading The Raven Cycle in anticipation of THE RAVEN KING coming out this year and hoo boy, it’s been turning my feelings upside down again! You don’t really need a re-read review of BLUE LILY, LILY BLUE so I thought I’d dive back into the YA Aesthetics again since these books are always so visual for me! I can picture everything just perfectly and although it’s hard to find pictures in the real world that perfectly mirror what I’m seeing in my head, I think the ones below are pretty dang close! Check ’em out:

So what do you think? Is this how you pictured Blue Lily, Lily Blue? I was kind of astonished to find that picture of the rocking chairs and so perfect that there was even a Coke sign behind them!! I also love the phone/sewing/cat room (which in this picture just looks more like a sewing room) and the kitchen/bath/laundry haha!! 

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!


What do you think of YA Lit Memes & YA Aesthetics? Have you seen some awesome ones on Tumblr? Which books do you want to see represented next?

YA Aesthetics: The Scorpio Races

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 recently re-read THE SCORPIO RACES, bringing my total read count up to three. When I first read it a few years back, I wasn’t quite prepared for the beauty of the story. Once I re-read, I was totally in love. On my third read, I vowed to re-listen (yes, I listen to the audio each year because Steve West + Fiona Hardingham = perfection) every year and I hope that’s a tradition I will continue!

The story has really come to life for me and I love picking up more each read. I can really picture Thisby, Puck, Sean, the scenery, and the horses so instead of reviewing the book for a third time, I decided to share more the visual side and how the book comes to life for me!

YA Aesthetics: Anna and the French Kiss

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!

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!
