I judge books by their covers: A list of fashion books I've read this summer
I like pretty things. Books are included. If a book cover looks boring as heck I will not read it. It's the truth. It was so nice to actually have time this summer to read anything I wanted! Of course being that I love fashion and recently graduated I was determined to get my hands on every fashion book possible and to absorb every word. I currently have about nine books on my desk from the library. The library = my new best friend. Here is a quick little review of a few I've read with my own star ratings.
