Name Slaughterhouse 90210
Location New York
One of the most popular book-related blogs on Tumblr, Slaughterhouse 90210 is a perfect marriage of high and low culture. Editor Maris Kreizman pairs screencaps from beloved (and reviled) television shows with befittingly suited quotes from literature. It’s where Kurt Vonnegut meets Brenda Walsh, Oscar Wilde meets Arrested Development, and Snooki meets Somerset Maugham. This classic Tumblr celebrates its three-year anniversary this week.
