{Bookish} Style Files: Strange the Dreamer

It's time for another edition of {Bookish} Style Files, friends! Once again, I'm pairing beautiful book covers with delightful dresses, and I'm really excited that this time around, I'll be featuring Strange the Dreamer. I've been looking forward to Strange the Dreamer since it was first announced, and I can't wait to dive into another magical novel from Laini Taylor. Before we get to the dresses, here's a little bit about the book and the author!

Series: Strange the Dreamer #1
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: March 28, 2017

A new epic fantasy by National Book Award finalist and New York Times bestselling author Laini Taylor of the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy.

The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around— and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he's been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance to lose his dream forever.

What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?

The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries—including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo's dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? and if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?

In this sweeping and breathtaking new novel by National Book Award finalist Laini Taylor, author of the New York Times bestselling Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, the shadow of the past is as real as the ghosts who haunt the citadel of murdered gods. Fall into a mythical world of dread and wonder, moths and nightmares, love and carnage.

Welcome to Weep.

Laini Taylor is the New York Times bestselling author of the global sensation the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy: Daughter of Smoke & Bone, Days of Blood & Starlight, and Dreams of Gods & Monsters, and the companion e-novella, Night of Cake & Puppets.

And now, on to the main event - the pretty dresses that I've picked out to match the cover of Strange the Dreamer. I really love that the cover combines blue and gold, two colors that I've always been personally drawn to. Searching for these dresses below was a whole lot of fun, and I hope you love them too! Let me know in the comments section which one is your favorite. (I'm personally a fan of the Fluttering Romance dress!)
