shoomlah:

so after three years of really smart commenters on Reddit and random Yahoo articles complaining about the princesses’ eyes being closed, I decided to take the advice to heart and update the series!

I’ll start rolling out the finished pieces over the next couple of weeks, but I think it’s clearly for the best.

I wanted to … make [Rorschach] as like, ‘this is what Batman would be in the real world’. But I have forgotten that actually to a lot of comic fans, ‘smelling’, ‘not having a girlfriend’, these are actually kind of heroic! So Rorschach became the most popular character in Watchmen. I made him to be a bad example. But I have people come up to me in the street and saying: ‘I AM Rorschach. That is MY story’. And I’d be thinking: ‘Yeah, great. Could you just, like, keep away from me, never come anywhere near me again as long as I live?’ By Alan Moore (via class-snuggle)

Book List of Book Lists

We make a lot of young adult book lists at STACKED, and I know how useful they are for collection development and reader’s advisory purposes. They’re useful enough for me when I write them or read the ones Kimberly’s written. So I thought I’d make a list of some of our book lists, for those who are interested in digging deep into the various genres and themes within YA fiction. 

I’ll add to this periodically as we update our book lists so that finding them all in one place is easy, useful, and convenient. 

Get Genrefied Series

All of these lists focus on specific genres or subgenres within YA fiction. They each talk about the defining characteristics of the genre (or format!), followed by a big book list, and other websites and blogs to explore that delve even further into the specified genre.

Other Thematic Book Lists

We’re fans of book lists, period, and we’ve made a number of thematic and trend-style book lists. 

Contemporary Realistic Fiction:

Beyond the Bestsellers

At Book Riot, I run a series called “Beyond the Bestsellers,” where I offer suggestions of lesser-known titles to read after you’ve read a well-known, bestselling YA book or author. 

Other YA Book Lists:

I’ve updated my mega list of young adult book lists! This is the sharable version, but there’s also a permanent page on my Tumblr. If you’re looking for a YA read or need to make some YA recs, hopefully you can find something here. I regularly update the post and the permanent page with new lists.

 faig ahmeds Embroidered Art 

When you think of traditional carpets from Azerbaijan, the thought of contemporary art does not quickly spring to mind… but these beautiful, and modern works will change that. Faiq Ahmed, a native of the Eurasian nation, has taken his countries old-school art form and brought it beautifully into the current era, deconstructing the ancient process of weaving and adapting it to todays contemporary art forms.

30 Day Challenge // Day 25 // Something From Mythology
Though I’m not really a fan of where the story has gone but I’ve always loved the mythology of Doctor Who. Recently the 50th Anniversary depicted a Gallifreyan painting which was a moment in time captured in a picture, literally. So, I was curious about what a Gallifreyan sculpture might look like. I imagined it as a TARDIS in a time where everything is gone and all that’s left of these relics is the box of time they contained and the shell has withered leaving only scrambled, fluctuating moments in time from when it was alive. Almost like it’s dreaming.
