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.
This weeks pick is:
There is no synopsis for this book. But here is the synopsis for the first book, Skulk:
When Meg witnesses the dying moments of a shapeshifting fox and is given a beautiful and powerful stone, her life changes forever. She is plunged into the dark world of the Skulk, a group of shapeshifting foxes.
As she learns about the other groups of shapeshifters that lurk around London – the Rabble, the Horde, the Cluster and the Conspiracy – she becomes aware of a deadly threat against all the shapeshifters. They must put aside all their enmity and hostility and fight together to defeat it.
Rabble is the second book in the Skulk series by Rosie Best. I am sad to say the release of this book has been postponed since the publisher, Strange Chemistry, has closed. On Tumblr the author mentions a new publisher or possibly going self-published, but there is no release date. I really enjoyed the first book Skulk (here is my review) and I was so looking forward to the next book. This is a great series and I wish the best of luck to the author. So todays Book Looks post is my way of supporting the series.
The heroine, Meg, is 16-year-old in London. She comes from an affluent family but money and fancy clothes was never her priority. She secretly was a graffiti artist which is why I thought the backpack with a graffiti design is something she would love. Since Meg doesn’t care about following the latest fashion trends I created an outfit that is stylish and comfortable (for her nights wandering the streets tagging or saving the world!). Skulk is a series of shapeshifters, which are divided into 5 groups: Skulk (foxes), Rabble (butterflies), Conspiracy (ravens), Horde (rats), and the Cluster (spiders). The Skulk, Rabble and Cluster are represented in the top and jewelry I selected. The converse and leather jacket add a splash of color (just as in the books cover).
If you are looking for something new to read I hope you would check out Skulk! This is a creative and exciting story and I hope we get to read more from Rosie Best.
