Inspired By: October Bestselling Book Covers

Although I have yet to read any of the bestsellers below, they are definitely on my TBR (to be read) list. Unfortunately, I'll have to wait until I finish the pile of unread books already stacked near my bed first.

The Casual Vacancy

J.K. Rowling's new novel is about the little town of Pagford, which seems perfect, but hidden behind the smiling faces and little cottages is a town at war; the empty seat on the town coucil uproots everything. I choose an outfit that not only reflects the colors on the book's cover, but is perfect for walking in a small town and possibly for wearing to a council meeting.

Gone Girl

Gillian Flynn's thrilling new novel is about a marriage gone wrong. On Nick and Amy's Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary, Amy mysteriously disappears. Nick is being evasive to the police, but does that mean he's a killer? Nick stands by his innocence, so where is his wife? This cover is dark but somewhat girly, so I kept with that theme with a black lace dress, skull-embellished flats, and a polka dot top.

The Time Keeper

Mitch Albom's novel is about the first man on earth to count the hours. The inventor of the clock is being punished for trying to measure God's greatest gift -- life. Father Time is banished to a cave where he must listen to the cries of those who wish they had more time, but is eventually released and given a mission: he must teach two people the meaning of time. Being that this novel is about time, I chose pieces that are more "timeless" -- a-line skirt, collared shirt, shift dress, trench coat.

Inspired By: Son Cover

{Click for item info}
Lois Lowry's novel brings us back to the world of The Giver with a new hero, Claire. A Birthmother, she gives birth to a son, but something goes wrong; she becomes sterile and he is taken away. She has no idea what happened to him and yearns to find her son. In a world with no color and emotion, it makes sense that the cover would be gray and cold, but all all-gray outfit can definitely be chic and warm.

  3. I had never thought of creating outfits based on book covers but it worked out beautifully! I especially love the one based on Gone, Girl - the minimalist combination of black and pale pink instead of the usual white is just perfect :)

  4. This is such a clever idea and I love your choices! Lovely post :D
