It's been a little bit since I did some book reviews! I thought I'd share a few books from my recent reads. Actually I've been mostly working my way through a reread of the Mortal Instruments, a bit of light fare for the lockdown, but there's been a few ebooks here and there on evenings when I didn't feel like holding a paperback. Here they are!
Face of Fear - Blake Pierce
I'm gradually working my way through this series and loving the formula of an FBI agent who can see numbers and calculations that are invisible to the rest of us. There's a strong relationship growing between her and her partner and it's cool to see that supportive female relationship instead of a romance leading the path of the story. Looking forward to the next books as there have been a couple more already announced to come out later.
Louis Vuitton - The Complete Fashion Collections by Louise Rytter
Both a great read and a fantastic source of visual inspiration. There is a lot of information as to materials, inspirations, design forms, and quotes from the media around every collection. My only criticism is that the images barely cover half of each collection. Given the choice, I would rather see the whole collection and perhaps have the images a little smaller on the page with some key details picked out. Sometimes a whole page is dedicated to images of the audience or venue blurred out as the background to a single smaller image, and it feels like the space could have been better used showcasing more looks. The book ends with the A/W 18/19 collection and also has biographies of both Jacobs and Ghesquiere.
My Invsisible Lover: Retrubution - Jamie Athelstan
This was a wild ride to the end. I reviewed book one in the short series last time I did a book review blog and couldn't resist following the story to the end. There's so much worldbuilding here I wonder if there will be another trilogy or series set in the same universe. So many twists and turns!
