How we reached GIFus Maximus today. 

If this isn’t the best ‘Thrones’-related GIF yet then we don’t know what is. 

Don’t think ‘Song of Ice and Fire’ will get finished? ‘F— you,’ says George R.R. Martin 

This one is really about de-emphasizing her name (leaving it off completely) and having young people connect with the fact that it is a real girl’s diary. This is trying to not show a depiction of Jane, but plays on the interior passion that we get from Jane’s voice. A little straightforward but visually arresting. The hanging body position with dangling legs connects the “killing” to the idea of lynching. The simplicity of the tall constructed letters on the landscape suggests the epic sweep of the book. The legs of two boys coming in from the top foreshadow the fall(s) and keeps the boys apart from everything else. The Rorschach test mark is clearly bloody and ominous. But it also speaks to the psychological issues Golding deals with in the book. The idea here comes from when Holden is in his sister’s school waiting for Phoebe he sees this obscenity written under the stairway and rubs it out, sees another and rubs it out and then comes across

Literary classics imagined as YA books.

Did you know that Dr. Seuss had a pretty rad hat collection?

Isn’t the cover of our writer’s new book cool?

Start your fangirling: Tumblr favorite Rainbow Rowell just inked a deal to write two graphic novels. Fingers crossed for the continuing adventures of Cath and Levi!

Excellent news for Orange is the New Black fans (and anyone who likes awesome people): Laverne Cox, a.k.a. Sophia, is writing a memoir.

This is a thing. And now it’s a best-selling thing.
