Welcome to court! My very own Glittering Court, that is! This is the most fun I have ever had with a blog post maybe ever. Because pretty dresses! It’s like playing Barbie with your favorite fictional characters- at least, that’s how I decided to create my court! (Also, this was my first foray into Polyvore, which is SO addicting!) I will give you the book info, because you need it to really understand why I chose who I chose for my court!The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead
Series: The Glittering Court #1
Published by Razorbill on March 28th 2017
Big and sweeping, spanning from the refined palaces of Osfrid to the gold dust and untamed forests of Adoria, The Glittering Court tells the story of Adelaide, an Osfridian countess who poses as her servant to escape an arranged marriage and start a new life in Adoria, the New World. But to do that, she must join the Glittering Court.
Both a school and a business venture, the Glittering Court is designed to transform impoverished girls into upper-class ladies who appear destined for powerful and wealthy marriages in the New World. Adelaide naturally excels in her training, and even makes a few friends: the fiery former laundress Tamsin and the beautiful Sirminican refugee Mira. She manages to keep her true identity hidden from all but one: the intriguing Cedric Thorn, son of the wealthy proprietor of the Glittering Court.
When Adelaide discovers that Cedric is hiding a dangerous secret of his own, together they hatch a scheme to make the best of Adelaide’s deception. Complications soon arise—first as they cross the treacherous seas from Osfrid to Adoria, and then when Adelaide catches the attention of a powerful governor.
But no complication will prove quite as daunting as the potent attraction simmering between Adelaide and Cedric. An attraction that, if acted on, would scandalize the Glittering Court and make them both outcasts in wild, vastly uncharted lands…
So. You see that while my court has to look lovely, they also have to be some badass ladies who can and will be my accomplices on the frontier!
Um, this one is kind of a no-brainer, right? Katniss hunts, she can live in the wilderness, and she has no qualms about killing the careers. We’re golden! Also, I am letting her wear green because 1) It’s her favorite color, 2) It’s her birthstone, 3) She likes the woods and the meadow and it just makes sense okay? Enough with “The Girl on Fire”.
Vika is one of my newest favorites- and her Russian influence made her one of my favorites to dress! Plus she can do magical things, and she is pretty level headed. I like our chances.
Obviously we want Celaena. And she’s a girl who loves to dress up, so I feel like she will enjoy the glam and glitter. But, she is also a badass, so she has to have her sword, in case anyone needs to be assassinated, pronto.
I am not going into ANY new territory without the absolute baddest chick out there. This girl is a warrior princess through and through. And so, she’s on my team. I can count on Octavia to not only kick ass, but diffuse any troublesome situation with class and dignity. Plus, she’s a charmer too.
Shazi is smart- who else could elude an automatic death sentence? She’s wise, and clever, and loyal. Plus, she tells a hell of a story, which will be a fabulous distraction for these gentlemen of the New World!
Vhalla is my girl. A Windwalker in a world that is missing its Windwalkers, a ordinary girl from the library turned into a freaking savior, yet she somehow manages to be a totally realistic character. I think we should be roommates.
Jayden, where do I begin? First, she’s a strong woman in a time when women have like, zero rights. So she will be helpful here for sure. Second, she knows how to dance, which I think will be another plus to make these men think we give a hoot about marrying them.Plus she’s super smart, AND loves her family fiercly. Win.
Oh, and we need a place to stay, right!
This should do the trick!! Does it look familiar? It should…..
