Books & Looks: The Raven King
Books & Looks is a new feature I’m trying out on my blog. I have been inspired by various bloggers / bookstagrammers who feature various posts like Outfit of the Day (OOTD) paired with their latest read. I am not quite brave enough to show photos of myself in outfits (and they would be pretty boring – I have a fairy limited wardrobe despite being a bit of a shopaholic). I decided to instead create a ‘look’ using Polyvore.
It’s not exactly a well-kept secret that my most-anticipated read this year was The Raven King by Maggie Steifvater. I have such serious love for this series (and it’s author) and I was expecting great things from this latest (and last *sobs*) book in the series.
It certainly didn’t disappoint! It wasn’t perfect (but then, most series enders rarely are – it is very difficult to tie everything up to every reader’s expectations) but it was pretty darn close!
One of my favourite part’s of the series has been the slow-burn romance that has developed between Blue Sargent and Richard Gansey hereby dubbed ‘Bluesey’ (although the relationship between Ronan Lynch and Adam Parrish aka ‘Pynch’ also comes pretty close).
Blue is a great heroine – she is bold and brash and really pretty darn blunt which normally turns me off but works great for her character. I like that Blue has obvious faults and she deftly sums up the very definition of ‘quirky’.
Her particular style is rather oddball as well so I knew it would be fun trying to match an outfit to her character – I only hope I have done her justice!
**UPDATE: As of April 8th 2018, Polyvore is no more. Luckily, I was able to access my downloaded sets. However, the below links no longer work.**
