Nine Women, One Dress by Jane L Rosen IMAGE

I picked up this book ages ago; before I got back into my YA groove. It’s an adult romance book (not a bodice ripper, but still romance), and it’s about fashion. 

Taking place through numerous points of view (not just the views of nine women), this book revolves around the way those nine women’s lives are affected by one dress. It also starts and ends with the pattern maker of the dress, and has a lovely full circle feeling. 

It’s a beautiful story about love, in more than one way; there are many love and loss stories within its pages. There are cheating husbands, wives, and fresh starts. It really has it all, and that made me love it. 

I had been putting off reading this book for ages, but everyone suggested I bring it with me on my road trip, and I’m so glad they did. It’s a fantastic read; so much fun and love in it. I highly recommend it. 

A Sense8 Christmas

Fangirls, as you may or may not recall, I reviewed a show called Sense8. You can see the review here. Basically, even though it had some flaws, it’s also incredible for several reasons. It has amazing representation and it has a super stressful but super beautiful plot. It takes the knowledge somewhere out there people have the same birthday to the milisecond, and it expands it, connecting those people mentally and physically and emotionally. They are called clusters but more importantly most clusters become a family. The show follows the newest cluster as they discover this new world and run from danger. And this year, they gave us a two hour Christmas special.
