So, I’ve been wasting loads of time on Tumblr lately. To turn my waste of time into something that may be of use to you, humble CLPTeensburgh reader, I now offer a list of book recommendations based entirely on which Tumblr blogs you enjoy.
Feel free to tell me in the comments whether I’m hitting the nail on the head or if I am off in outer space somewhere. Or you can share your own recommendations.
Are you a big fan of Dubstep? It originated in South London… So did this fast-paced thriller by Kevin Brooks. If you like DUBSTEP FRIDAY on Tumblr, then try:
Sixteen-year-old Tom Harvey was an ordinary Londoner until an attack caused fragments of an iPhone to be embedded in his brain, giving him incredible knowledge and power. But using that power against the gang that attacked him could have deadly consequences.
A Tumblr called Poem Endings seems to belive that the end is the best part of the poem. If you like poem endings, try this poetry book featuring talented young poets. Bonus: the poet/editor of this book, Naomi Shihab Nye, will be visiting the Pittsburgh area on December 9th. You can see her for free!
Young poets share their words, exploring subjects like love, family, and war.
Bread people = silly fun. If you are a fan of silly fun like Bread People, try Glamorpuss: the Enchanting World of Kitty Wigs.
Cats. In Wigs. That is all.
Tumblr is a great place to go if you are a Doctor Who fan. If you like the official Doctor Who Tumblr or any of the other many Doctor Who fan pages, then try our Doctor Who series at the library! Bonus: There is an upcoming Doctor Who Party in Teen!
It’s a whole series devoted to your favorite BBC show about a time-traveling alien-humanoid.
Are you a fan of Table for 1, a Tumblr that features people sitting alone? If you like Table for 1 because it’s sad and weird, yet a little endearing and sweet, then you need to try I Need You More Than I Love You and I Love You To Bits.
Morris and Betty, two teens living in Stockholm, Sweden, meet and fall in love. The darkness within each of them at times makes it hard to maintain their love affair, especially after Betty compares Morris’s behavior to that of his bipolar father.
And finally, if you are a fan of the library’s blog, Facebook, or Twitter, then check us out on Tumblr!!!
