{Bookish} Style Files: The Library of Fates

I'm really happy to be a part of the official blog tour for The Library of Fates, a brand new standalone fantasy from author Aditi Khorana. If you're interested in my thoughts on this one, my review will be popping up in a couple of weeks. Anyway, inspired by the vivid color palette of this cover and the details that Khorana weaves into her story, I picked out a couple of dresses to match!

No one is entirely certain what brings the Emperor Sikander to Shalingar. Until now, the idyllic kingdom has been immune to his many violent conquests. To keep the visit friendly, Princess Amrita has offered herself as his bride, sacrificing everything--family, her childhood love, and her freedom--to save her people. But her offer isn't enough.

The unthinkable happens, and Amrita finds herself a fugitive, utterly alone but for an oracle named Thala, who was kept by Sikander as a slave and managed to escape amid the chaos of a palace under siege. With nothing and no one else to turn to, Amrita and Thala are forced to rely on each other. But while Amrita feels responsible for her kingdom and sets out to warn her people, the newly free Thala has no such ties. She encourages Amrita to go on a quest to find the fabled Library of All Things, where it is possible for each of them to reverse their fates. To go back to before Sikander took everything from them. 

Stripped of all that she loves, caught between her rosy past and an unknown future, will Amrita be able to restore what was lost, or does another life--and another love--await?

Aditi Khorana spent parts of her childhood in India, Denmark, and New England. She has a BA in international relations from Brown University and an MA in global media and communications from the Annenberg School for Communication. She has worked as a journalist at ABC News, CNN, and PBS, and most recently as a marketing executive consulting for various Hollywood studios including Fox, Paramount, and Sony. She is also the author of Mirror in the Sky. She lives in Los Angeles and spends her free time reading, hiking, and exploring LA's eclectic and wonderful architecture.

I decided I wanted to stick primarily to choosing dresses that matched the array of colors that are included on this cover, so check out this beautiful selection of solid colored dresses I curated! Which one is your favorite? Personally, I gravitate towards the purple the most, though I wouldn't mind owning them all.
