A literary take on fashion part 12

If you’re new to this books into fashion series, you can catch up with the others HERE.

I’m going to start off this post by saying that I’m looking for a few people interested in creating their own interpretations of these books into fashion collages. Leave me a note in the comments or email me (click that little envelope on the right margin).

I’m a huge True Blood fan, this recently led me to actually go and read the books (I’m currently on the second one). I began at the beginning with Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris. But I had already been warned that the books were very lighthearted and not the most academic of books. Sookie is a mind reader working as a waitress at Merlotte’s in Bon Temps at a time when vampires have come out of hiding. I actually liked reading it because I’m able to see the subtle changes that were done in the tv show – my favorite True Blood character Lafayette has a much different story in the books. Sookie is a tough gal who just happens to fall in love with a vampire (or two). Seeing what the HBO people did for this series, I could actually see them doing a 50 Shades of Grey tv series and turning it into something better.

The books by David Sedaris are something you must read if you like to laugh – his books just have something that I can’t put my finger on. If you’ve ever heard him speak (especially on NPR), you will know that he exudes humor and (American) familiarity. Dress Your Family In Corduroy and Denim was the first David Sedaris book I ever read. It is a mix of anecdotal stories as he grew up. You learn about his crazy family, you laugh, but then you realize that it may resonate with you in some way. I’d recommend any of his books.

Have you read either of these books before? How do you feel about them? I’m also currently reading Slaughterhouse Five for the first time ever and I’m blown away by how good it is (why did I wait SO long to read it?!).

Again, if you’d like to interpret one of your favorite books into a polyvore fashion set, let me know!
