Pinteresting: Bikes & Beaches

I've really gotten into Pinterest lately. I mean, I've been on it for a while (come be friends with me!), but now that I've graduated and don't have to do homework once I get off work, I have all this free time. Most of it is Netflixing Parks & Recreation and looking on Pinterest for how I'll decorate my apartment (you know, if I ever get my own when I move).

So I wanted to combine my recent pinning obsession with books!
My inspiration for this collage was Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen. She's one of my favorite authors, and I always feel nostalgic when I read her books because they take me back to my high school days when I first starting reading them (woah. that was EIGHT years ago).

Eli, the boy in this book, rides bikes, and has a clan that does like actual tricks and things on them, and he teaches Auden how to ride a bike. So it's a pretty significant little point in the book. He's also an insomniac like Auden, so they spend a lot of time at a 24-hour diner, and what better to order at a diner than some freaking delicious pancakes?

Auden also gets a job in a little boutique in the new town she's moved to, which is a beach side, small town with not very many people in it or with-the-times things, hence the other images.

What do you think of this post? Any suggestions for what book I should pin next? Let's talk!

The image of the pancakes is mine. They were the most delicious pancakes from this adorable brunch place here in Louisville I go to a lot called Wild Eggs. If you're in the area, highly recommend.

  1. This is such a fun idea! I love Pinterest as well. I like to set aside some time in between studying to just peruse my Pinterest. And books! Obviously I love books so this is a match made in heaven for me! And Along for the Ride is such a perfect choice! I feel like all of Sarah Dessen's books would be really great to make collages for!

    And I followed you! :)

    1. Thanks! I was hoping people would like it because I had so much fun making it! I feel like Sarah Dessen's books may make more appearances in this venture on Pinterest :)

      And yay! I'm going to go find you now and follow you!

  2. I just love Pinterest, I have been more acitve there lately. I mostly pin recipes on my ever growing Delicious (Looking) Food board, nature pictures and animal pictures. beside that I also pin the covers of the books I read on Pinterest. It's such a fun social meda site to hang around.
    I like your idea of collage centered around a book, I haven't read Along for the Ride so I am not sure how spot on your colage is, but it does give me a feel for the book.

    1. I didn't really get the point of it a few years ago when it first started getting really big, but now that I have all this time on my hands, I'm in love!
