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:
Murder, abductions, and forbidden romance abound in this thrilling sequel to Sara B. Larson’s acclaimed YA debut, DEFY.
Alexa remains by the newly crowned King Damian’s side as his guard, ever committed to helping him rebuild Antion and reclaim the hope of Antion’s people, despite continuing to harbor a secret love for him. However, when another threat to Damian and his kingdom emerges, and blame is cast on their newly forged allies from Blevon, Alexa knows things are not what they seem. With the fate of her nation hanging in the balance once again, will Alexa be able to protect her king and uncover the true enemy — before it’s too late?
Ignite is the second book in the Defy series. I loved the first book, Defy, so I can’t wait to read more of this series. Check out my 5 star review of Defy.
For the look I found the perfect gown to match the color of the cover. Since this series is a fantasy I liked the design of the gown, similar to a Greek toga or something you would see on The Game of Thrones (Alexa reminds me of Arya Stark). Since Alexa has been pretending to be a boy for so many years I thought this gown was conservative for her (and something she would be comfortable in). The jewelry with arrows go great with the bow and arrow of the cover. This is something I would love to wear, even with flat sandals.
What do you think of the look? Do you have a book you are waiting for?
