When we come to the last words of an incredible book we can get a sinking feeling. We want the liquid ink of the words to be poured together in a giant pool that we can immerse ourselves in. We want the pages to become origami-folded into a creature that we can wrap our arms around and hug. Whatever we want, we don’t want the story to be over.
I like to think of If Mermaids Wore Suspenders as the Neverland of fictional worlds. Here, your favorite books and characters are still alive and interacting with one another (Who Would Win in a Sword Fight: Peter Pan or Romeo?), with our modern lives (Mr. Darcy and Whiskey: If Literary Characters Were Beverages), and with music to create brand new, immersive experiences (Classical Music Stories: Dumbledore and J.S. Bach and Songs for Every Book: Frankenstein and Sia).
The majority of the blog explores “classic literature” like The Great Gatsby, Les Misérables, and Romeo and Juliet, but you’ll find some more recent reads like The Martian and All the Light We Cannot See, as well.
You’ll find artists as diverse as J.S. Bach, Taylor Swift, Sleigh Bells, Disney, Say Lou Lou, and Europe–because incredible fictional worlds don’t just come in one genre!
In a nutshell, this blog is designed to be a creative escape for all of us who love exploring fictional worlds. So whether you’re looking to stay immersed in your favorite stories, discover some brand new worlds, get a creative boost before tackling that tricky school or work project, or just have some nerdy fun, If Mermaids Wore Suspenders was made for you!
Thank you in advance for reading, and I truly hope you enjoy!
