Happy Friday everyone! Lately there seems to be a growing trend of books being published that are based upon online forums. We’ve looked at books that originated with Twitter hashtags and Instagram posts before, and today features a book whose concept began on Tumblr. Slaughterhouse 90210 presents a wonderful juxtaposition of stills from popular movies and TV shows, and book quotes which pair up perfectly together. Maris Kreizman, the brains behind this idea, allows you to indulge your guilty pleasures while appreciating the metaphors and social commentary, or just laugh at the way Virginia Woolf’s words pair with Orange is the New Black. In their review of the book, The Huffington Post states that this book is a great way to “explain the tenets of Gossip Girl to your book club.” Due to its multi-faceted concept, feel free to be as shallow or intellectual as you feel! Remember – all culture, no matter its type, is culture, even if it makes you laugh!
“Seldom, very seldom, does complete truth belong to any human disclosure; seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised or a little mistaken.“
― Jane Austen, Emma
