Tara: Did we do this one yet?

Amanda: We definitely HAVE NOT

Maya: I’m guessing that’s YA since it’s so amazing!!

Amanda: Surprisingly, it’s adult I believe!

Sarah: This is gorgeous.

Sneezy: FWOOOSH!!!!!

The Jeweled Heart of Rosemont Castle by Clara Wimberly.  A dark haired woman in a fuchsia and black dress is running through the hills, away from a castle.

From Heather S.

Sarah: Look at this old skool gloriousness.

Heather sent it to me with the subject line: GOTHIC + FUCHSIA

Amanda: I want to know more!

Tara: That dress is too fabulous to keep it in a house of peril.

Sarah: As I said to Heather, I don’t often wear skirts or dresses, but when I do, I want long, full skirts, sweetheart necklines, and sweeping fabric. This is like my dream gown. You know, for everyday wear.

Elyse: All of my Gothic reads make me hope that one day I too can run away from a castle in a billowing gown

The Romance Recipe by Ruby Barrett.  An illustrated cover of two brunette women touching foreheads.  One has short hair and is in an off the shoulder black shirt.  The other has shoulder length hair and is wearing a chef's coat.

Elyse: Yesss

Susan: Oh that is gorgeous

Amanda: I love me a “forehead to forehead” pose.

Sarah: Haircut envy activated.

Sneezy: That snuggle!!!

Hotel Magnifique by Emily J. Taylor.  A black cover with the outline of a hotel in bright purple and teal.  Peacock feathers frame the sides and a teal key on a chain dangles below the title, which is written in gold in the center.

Carrie: oh. MY. GOD.

Sarah: The roaming gnome wants me to check into this hotel.

Elyse: It’s the Lisa Frank colors: purple, magenta, teal.
