Book Style + Giveaway: The Library of Lost Things

October 12, 2019

The Library of Lost Things released this past week, and I’m excited to host author Laura Taylor Namey today in celebration of her debut novel! I’ve never created a “Book Look” based off a cover before but had so much fun creating this look for the book.

Inspired by Laura’s book styles based on her characters, I decided to create a book look to go along with the cover!

About the Book

Find it: Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes & Noble

From the moment she first learned to read, literary genius Darcy Wells has spent most of her time living in the worlds of her books. There, she can avoid the crushing reality of her mother’s hoarding and pretend her life is simply ordinary. But when a new property manager becomes more active in the upkeep of their apartment complex, the only home Darcy has ever known outside of her books suddenly hangs in the balance.

While Darcy is struggling to survive beneath the weight of her mother’s compulsive shopping, Asher Fleet, a former teen pilot with an unexpectedly shattered future, walks into the bookstore where she works…and straight into her heart. For the first time in her life, Darcy can’t seem to find the right words. Fairy tales are one thing, but real love makes her want to hide inside her carefully constructed ink-and-paper bomb shelter.

Still, after spending her whole life keeping people out, something about Asher makes Darcy want to open up. But securing her own happily-ever-after will mean she’ll need to stop hiding and start living her own truth—even if it’s messy.
