Book Looks was created by Jen at Books and Other Happy Ever Afters ,combining our love of books & fashion with book cover or scene inspired outfits. Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This weeks pick:
When her father died, Lucy Mae Estmond inherited the family business. She has known all of her life that she would be in line to watch over the souls of the recently passed, keeping them safe from the Reapers.
The soul eating Reapers have been a plague upon the Earth, stealing souls and leaving the Keepers as the only thing that stands between Heaven and Hell. The factions despise each other and have warred for generations.
Then Lucy discovers an ancient legend predicting the arrival of the Chosen One, destined to bring forth an end to the Reapers. The surprises continue when she realizes she is that person. For Lucy, being the Chosen One doesn’t change much. Fighting Reapers is just another day in the life of a Keeper.
When she meets Jack Walker, they both realize they have an insane, mutual attraction. Too bad that he’s been sent to prevent the prophecy from coming true. His only mission: to kill the Chosen One.
Releases August 12th 2014
Lately I have been reading a lot of adult contemporary romance books so I have been looking for new genres to read. The title of this book screams action. The red dress and birds is eye catching, if I saw this in a bookstore I would definitely pick it up. The story sounds really good and is just what I’ve been looking for.
Since I haven’t read this book yet I am using my imagination to create this Book Looks. I found a red dress that is pretty and with the shorter front it should make it easy for Lucy to fight in. The black boots are killer (literally she can use these as a weapon) and I think a back pack is practical for her to hold her supplies (first aid kits, extra weapons, etc.). I love the leather jacket and jewelry. To top it off is the special crossbow I found – I love the fantasy and medieval look of it.
What book are you waiting for?
