I am back with one of my original features inspired by Lila @ The Bookkeeper’s Secret and Reg @ She Latitude to put together outfits inspired by book covers.Usually I pick the cover based on my favorite books (old and new), underhyped books that I want to feature a bit more on my blog or just regular beautiful covers.
SO let’s get started!

I’ve mentioned this book series quite a few times on this blog but I thought that I should mention it again because I’m such a huge fan of it. Mermaids are a huge obsession of mine, my favorite Disney movie is The Little Mermaid so I love to discover books that are all about mermaids and this series is one of my favorite ones. It’s just a super fun series and while you can’t take it very seriously, it also deals with quite a few themes like death, feminism and friendship. I’m really looking forward to seeing how the series develops and ends in the last two books which I haven’t read yet but I’m doing it soon!
Fun fact: This book and series are very, very punny. Yep, you read that right.
Serafina, daughter of Isabella, Queen of Miromara, has been raised with the expectation – and burden – that she will someday become ruler of the oldest civilization of the merfolk. On the eve of the Dokimí ceremony, which will determine if she is worthy of the crown, Sera is haunted by a strange dream that foretells the return of an ancient evil. But her nightmare is forgotten the next day as she diligently practices her songspell; eagerly anticipates a reunion with her best friend, Neela; and anxiously worries about Mahdi, the crown prince of Matali, and whether his feelings toward her and their future betrothal have changed. Most of all, she worries about not living up to her mother’s hopes.
The Dokimí proceeds, a dazzling display of majesty and might, until a shocking turn of events interrupts it: an assassin’s arrow wounds Isabella. The realm falls into chaos, and Serafina’s darkest premonitions are confirmed. Now she and Neela must embark on a quest to find the assassin’s master and prevent a war between the mer nations. Their search will lead them to other mermaid heriones scattered across the six seas. Together they will form an unbreakable bond of sisterhood as they uncover a conspiracy that threatens their world’s very existence.
So that’s it for this post! Let me know what you think of the look and if you’ve read this book. If you haven’t, I hope you’ll give it a chance and when you do, make sure to let me know all your thoughts on it! Thanks so much for reading and I’ll see you on my next post!
