{Bookish} Style Files: Jane, Unlimited

I'm pleased as punch to be kicking off the blog tour for Jane, Unlimited! Kristin Cashore's latest is a cleverly constructed story that takes the reader alongside main character Jane on five different possible scenarios depending on a choice she makes. Personally, I thought it was really interesting!(You can find my full review here.) Today, however, as inspired by the five different genres in the novel - horror, fantasy, mystery, science fiction, spy thriller - I'm sharing a few different looks.



Jane, Unlimited book cover
Jane, Unlimited by Kristin Cashore
Publisher: Kathy Dawson Books
Publication Date: September 19, 2017

The highly anticipated standalone from the award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of the Graceling Realm series—a kaleidoscopic novel about grief, adventure, storytelling, and finding yourself in a world of seemingly infinite choices.

Jane has lived an ordinary life, raised by her aunt Magnolia—an adjunct professor and deep sea photographer. Jane counted on Magnolia to make the world feel expansive and to turn life into an adventure. But Aunt Magnolia was lost a few months ago in Antarctica on one of her expeditions.

Now, with no direction, a year out of high school, and obsessed with making umbrellas that look like her own dreams (but mostly just mourning her aunt), she is easily swept away by Kiran Thrash—a glamorous, capricious acquaintance who shows up and asks Jane to accompany her to a gala at her family's island mansion called Tu Reviens.

Jane remembers her aunt telling her: "If anyone ever invites to you to Tu Reviens, promise me that you'll go." With nothing but a trunkful of umbrella parts to her name, Jane ventures out to the Thrash estate. Then her story takes a turn, or rather, five turns. What Jane doesn't know is that Tu Reviens will offer her choices that can ultimately determine the course of her untethered life. But at Tu Reviens, every choice comes with a reward, or a price.


Kristin Cashore grew up in the northeast Pennsylvania countryside as the second of four daughters. She received a bachelor's degree from Williams College and a master's from the Center for the Study of Children's Literature at Simmons College, and she has worked as a dog runner, a packer in a candy factory, an editorial assistant, a legal assistant, and a freelance writer. She has lived in many places (including Sydney, New York City, Boston, London, Austin, and Jacksonville, Florida), and she currently lives in the Boston area. Her epic fantasy novels set in the Graceling Realm--Graceling, Fire, and Bitterblue--have won many awards and much high praise, including picks as ALA Best Books for Young Adults, School Library Journal Best Book of the Year, Booklist Editors Choice, and Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year. In addition, Graceling was shortlisted for the William C. Morris Debut Award and Fire is an Amelia Elizabeth Walden Book Award Winner.


I decided to do something a little bit different for this edition of {Bookish} Style Files! Instead of picking a couple of dresses to go with the cover, I decided to pick one dress to match the cover (the Jessica Howard Sequined Lace A-Line Dress, to be specific) and then pair it with accessories representative of the different genres. (I want to preface this by saying that the accessories aren't necessarily something that specifically has to do with this story but are just representative of the genre to me.)







Which look is your favorite? I'd actually wear them all, but I'm really drawn to the fantasy (those boots!) and the mystery (that hat!) looks most of all. Anyway, if you're interested in reading Jane, Unlimited, you're in luck!
