Visual Playlists

Inspired by this tumblr post by Karen Kavett, I put together four of my own visual playlists, using books, movies, and television. The idea for visual playlists, as Karen puts it is: "to recommend a set of books not based on their content, but on their spine and cover designs and how they would look on a shelf together." (this is taken from the post I've linked to)

And here are mine... sorry the pictures are such yucks.

playlist #1 - pink.

So Much Closer, by Susanne Colasanti; Don't Kill the Birthday Girl: Tales from an Allergic Life, by Sandra Beasley; The Summer of Firsts and Lasts, by Terra Elan McVoy; Odd Girl Out: The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls, by Rachel Simmons; and Baby Mama.

playlist #2 - bokeh & muted tones.
Lie, by Caroline Bock; Other Words for Love, by Lorraine Zago Rosenthal; Before I Fall, by Lauren Oliver; and Friday Night Lights the second season.

playlist #3 - starting with red.
What Happens Here, by Tara Altebrando; The History of Love, by Nicole Krauss; The Rules of Survival, by Nancy Werlin; Red: The Next Generation of American Writers - Teenage Girls - on What Fires Up Their Lives Today, edited by Amy Goldwasser; and Inception.

playlist #4 - shiny silver spacesuits.
A Million Suns, by Beth Revis; The Future of Us, by Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler; Legend, by Marie Lu; and Get Smart the complete series.


  1. What a neat idea! The shiny silver spacesuits are my favorites. =)
