THIS WEEK’S BOOK:Title: A Dress for the Wicked
Author: Autumn Krause
Publication Date: August 6, 2019
The high-stakes fashion scene of a reimagined nineteenth century Europe takes center stage in this YA debut perfect for fans of The Belles and The Luxe.
Nothing much happens in the sleepy town of Shy in Avon-upon-Kynt. And for eighteen years, Emmaline Watkins has feared that her future held just that: nothing.
But when the head of the most admired fashion house in the country opens her prestigious design competition to girls from outside the stylish capital city, Emmy’s dreams seem closer than they ever have before.
As the first “country girl” to compete, Emmy knows she’ll encounter extra hurdles on her way to the top. But as she navigates the twisted world of high fashion she starts to wonder: will she be able to tailor herself to fit into this dark, corrupted race? And at what cost?
Historical fiction and contemporary fans alike will flock to this twisted, lush story of fashion, betrayal, and romance.
I don’t read a lot of historical fiction, however this one is super intriguing to me. I love books that feature both fashion and competitions. It is a book that is being promoted for fans of The Selection and Project Runway. Sign me up!
