Ryan Gosling Reads YA

Current Mood: silly
Current Song: Wild Boys by Duran Duran

Tonight, I stumbled upon a new Tumblr filled with references to YA books, combined with...Ryan Gosling. Yes, indeed. For what it's worth, I think he's a good actor. (1) If this Tumblr gets people to read, I'm all for it!

So far, people have posted images recommending books written by Lauren Myracle, Libba Bray, Laini Taylor, Sarah Dessen, John Green, David Levithan, and more. There are also, of course, Twilight references, Harry Potter mentions, and other such things. I created this example, which references the fantastic novel Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You by Peter Cameron:(2)

The blog's administrator made this variation:

Reblog this, tweet this, popularize the Twitter hashtag #ryangoslingreadsya and pick up the books that these fun images are covertly recommending.

(1) Have you seen The Believer? If not, do!
(2) I very much enjoyed the novel, and I hope the film does it justice.

Just yesterday a friend sent me a picture she found of Ryan Gosling (why?!) saying 'Hey girl I love the way you made that mason jar into a lamp.' She found on Pinterest. I guess folks are finding great uses for Ryan Gosling's image.

I saw this when someone posted a link to it on Facebook, and I was delighted to see your name there as one of the creators.
