Bookish Style Guide is a feature I have on my blog where I share a Pinterest board with clothes and accessories inspired by the main character in a book I love. The boards will be full of things that I think the character I choose would wear. This time the character I chose was Blue Sargent from The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater.
The first book in The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater is The Raven Boys. Here’s the summary for that book:
“There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark’s Eve,” Neeve said. “Either you’re his true love . . . or you killed him.”
It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive.
Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.
His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.
But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.
For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.
THE STYLE GUIDE:
“She wore a dress Ronan thought looked like a lampshade. Whatever sort of lamp it belonged on, Gansey clearly wished he had one.” – The Dream Thives (The Raven Cycle #2). This quote was the inspiration for this style guide. I feel like Blue’s style would be funky and kind of unique .
