This week on #FaeFriday we’re talking about Sparkles. Faeries are associated continuously with being obsessed with sparkles. So this week’s prompt is:
Gosh, there are so many pretty books on my bookshelf! 😂 I think I've managed to narrow it down to two books that I just love the look of (and gives me a chance to repurpose some old bookstagram photos 😂)
The first book that came to mind was The Binding by Bridget Collins. When I first saw this book I was blown away by how gorgeous it was! Especially under the cover on the actual hardback, there is a beautiful intricate pattern as well. Plus, I was super lucky as the story on the inside is just as beautiful as the cover on the outside. I loved the concept of this book - in this universe a person can forget their bad memories by having them bound into a book by a book binder. The protagonist Emmett is working as an apprentice at a binders when one day he finds a book with his name on it. What follows is an incredible adventure as Emmett tries to discover what he so badly wanted to forget.
The second book that came to mind was Crier's War by Nina Varela. I loved the look and the sound of this book as soon as I saw it. It is just absolutely stunning! In this book automae have risen into power and control everything whereas the humans that are left are servants to the automae and treated abhorrently. They can be killed for the tiniest of indiscretions and some automae even want to wipe out the humans completely. In this book we see Crier, an automae, and Ayla, a human, become close and eventually realise that they both want the same things. Plus, they have definitely become one of my favourite ships for 2020! 😍
What is a book cover so beautiful that you couldn't stop staring at it? I look forward to everybody's FaeFriday posts and feel free to join in! More prompts have been added for April! I'll see you next week with the next prompt! ☺️ In the mean time, you can find me on my Twitter and Instagram!
