Lovely! I’ll try to think of something slightly interesting.
The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan

"Families are messy. Immortal families are eternally messy. Sometimes the best we can do is to remind each other that we’re related for better or for worse…and try to keep the maiming and killing to a minimum."
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
"If my life is going to mean anything, I have to live it myself."
The Other Countess by Eve Edwards
“She’s everything I want: the key to my lock, the arrow to my bow - oh, and ten thousand other such pathetic poetic tropes, none of which comes close to describing what she means to me.”

Hey! Congrats on trying to get back into reading! When I “got back” into reading, it was one of the best choices of my life.
I read mostly YA, so most of these fit in with that category.
I have not read Graceling, but I hear it’s good! These are just my top favorites for Sci-fi and fantasy. Dystopian novels are a bit of a in between for the two genres. Here are some of my favorite dystopian novels:
Hope this helps!

I’ve decided to make a separate post for the contest rules.
Submit an outfit based off a book cover, you can find examples here. The winner will get to pick a book from above and your get a promotion on the blog (I’ll have a post linking you and just basically promoting you) an extra family character, and I’ll make an outfit based off the winning one.

- The picture has to be your own. You can either be in it or have the outfit laid out. You just have to have the whole outfit in the picture.
- The winner will be picked by poll
- It doesn’t have to be a book I’ve already done. The outfit can be as original as you want.
- You can either enter it by submitting your outfit or tagging it “fashion by the book”
- It would be nice if you had a copy of the book in the picture.
- No inappropriate books or photos.

The Cupcake Queen by Heather Hepler
“At some point you just have to let go of what you thought should happen and live in what is happening.”
Eggs by Jerry
“Of course, all of their words for a thousand years could not fill the hole left by his mother, but they could raise a loving fence around it so he didn’t keep falling in.”
Catalyst by Laurie Halse Anderson
“I wish I were three feet tall and he could pick me up and he still had a beard and he wore cotton sweaters that felt soft on my cheek and I could cry it all away and I would wipe my tears on his shoulder and I could suck my thumb and suck the end of my ponytail and he wouldn’t tell me only babies did that and he would rock me on the front porch with the wind coming clean from the north and he would sing nursery rhymes with made-up words like Mom used to and he could teach me the alphabet again and how to walk and how to run and maybe I would do it better this time.”
