Inspired By: May's Best Selling Books

I read two books this past month that I really enjoyed! The first is Dorothy Must Die, which about a young woman named Amy who gets swept via tornado to Oz. There she learns that Oz is not how she thought it would be because Dorothy has taken over, and it's Amy's job to kill her. 

The second book is Adulting: How to Become a Grown Up in 468 Easy(ish) Steps. Now that I'm an adult, I figured I should read a book on how to become one, and this book is great! It's a good mix of informative and funny. 

All the Light We Cannot See
All the Light We Cannot See
Written by Anthony Doerr, All the Light We Cannot See is about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths cross in occupied France during World War II. Marie Laure flees with her father to Saint-Malo when the Germans occupy Paris. Meanwhile, Werner joins Hitler Youth because of his talent for building radios and he becomes a tracker of the Resistance, and eventually meets Marie Laure. 

Go for a 1940s schoolgirl-ish look by wearing a sky blue blouse, a blue pleated skirt, a compass necklace, black loafers, and stacked rings. Or wear a dove gray bow dress, blue earrings, gray "gem" ring, and white heeled sandals.

The Art of Neil Gaiman
The Art of Neil Gaiman
Written by Hayley Campbell, this book is about the famous novelist, comic writer, scriptwriter, and poet Neil Gaiman. The Art of Neil Gaiman is the first book to tell the full story of his creative life with peeks into his life through never-before-seen manuscripts, notes, drawings, and photographs. 

Since Gaiman himself wears lots of black and his stories tend to be dark, I went with all-black outfits. Wear a leather-piping gray jacket, a black fit and flare dress, quote ring, and black booties. Or for a professional look, go for a sheer polka dot top, black slacks, sunburst necklace, and black wedges.

#GIRLBOSS
#GIRLBOSS
Written by Sophia Amoruso, #GIRLBOSS is about Sophie Amoruso's journey from petty thievery to founder, CEO, and creative director of Nasty Gal, the $100 million dollar store. In her book, she chronicles her life while also showing women how to channel their passion and hard work, and how to keep their insecurities from getting in the way. 

Wear this fun party or date night look: a v-neck black dress, a pink floral necklace, a Fearless ring, coral-pink heels, and pink lipstick. Or emulate Sophia on the cover by wearing a tight black dress, a black floral necklace, a gold and black watch, and burgundy booties.

The One 
The One
Written by Kiera Cass, The One is the third and last in The Selection series about America Singer, the ordinary girl who was picked to enter the competition to be the next princess of Illea. The whole time she's struggled between her first love, Aspen, and her growing attraction to Prince Maxon, but now she's made her choice and she's ready to fight for it. 

Based on the cover, wear a pretty white lace dress, a pink ring, a silver rhinestone necklace, and heeled gold and nude sandals. Or instead go a little more casual in a white polka dot dress, a nude bow belt, clear drop earrings, a floral bracelet, and black and nude sandals.
