Inspired By: April's Best Selling Books

It's book time, ladies and gents! If you haven't heard yet, Anthony Doerr's book All The Light We Cannot See won the Pulitzer Prize! I've heard it's a fantastic book, but the book I most want to read from the ones below is The Girl at Midnight, a cool YA fantasy. 

The Girl at Midnight
The Girl at Midnight
Written by Melissa Grey; beneath the streets of New York City live the Avicen, an ancient race of people with feathers for hair and magic running through their veins. Age-old enchantments keep them hidden from humans. Echo, a human, is a runaway pickpocket and the Avicen are the only family she's ever known. When a war comes to her home, she decides it's time to act.

A fun and cover-inspired look: a star print dress, gold feather headband, purple belt, and peep-toe black booties. Or wear a casual outfit with a star print blouse, gray jeans, feather earrings, moon and star ring, and brown booties. 

Buy the book: B&N | Amazon | Goodreads

All The Light We Cannot See
All The Light We Cannot See
Written by Anthony Doerr, this Pulitzer-Prize winning and New York Times best seller is about blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II. 

A military-like outfit inspired by Werner, the orphan German boy: an olive jacket, striped blouse, jeans, a black watch, and black booties. Or wear an outfit like Marie-Laure, the French girl: a lace blue dress, black blazer, diamond ring, star earrings, and lace nude flats.

The Wicked Will Rise (Dorothy Must Die #2)
The Wicked Will Rise
Written by Danielle Paige, this YA reimagining of The Wizard of Oz follows Amy, a girl from Kanas, who landed on Oz in the previous book to find that it's not the place you know from the books and movies. Somehow, across a twisted and divided land, Amy has to find the Order, protect the true ruler of Oz, take Dorothy and her henchmen down—and try to figure out what I'm really doing here.

Inspired by the Wicked Witch, who oddly enough is a good guy in this book: a lace black romper, green bracelets, a mint watch, and mint and striped heels. Or an outfit based on Amy: black moto jacket, "Go Your Own Way" tank, distressed jeans, and floral sneakers.

The Hand on the Mirror: A True Story
The Hand on the Mirror
Written by Janis Heaphy Durham, this true story is about Janis and her husband, Max, who died of cancer in 2004. Soon after his death, she began encountering strange things: lights flickering, clocks stopping at 12:44, the exact time of Max's death, and a powdery handprint on a mirror. This launched her on a journey that transformed her spiritually and altered her view of reality forever.

Wear all-white like the ghost in the book: white blazer, polka dot tank, distressed jeans, silver cuff, and gray sneakers. Or throw on a gray tee dress, a striped sweater, and gray booties.
