Hi, lovelies! Today I'm really excited to share the beautiful Witchcraft Couture and Katarina West!
Keep scrolling for my review!
Witchcraft Couture by Katarina West
Oscar Pellegrini is a talented fashion designer with
a deadly enemy: his own critical mind. He destroys
much of what he designs and has been drifting for years, gradually retreating from the fashion business he loves but holding on to his dreams of success.
A chance meeting with a former girlfriend triggers a creative crisis so deep that Oscar escapes to Russia, where he drinks and despairs like never before. Just when he thinks he has lost everything he discovers a magical machine that turns ordinary outfits into irresistible sartorial triumphs. Oscar takes the machine back to Italy – and before he knows it, he has become famous for his designs, and celebrities and socialites are fighting to be first to wear his gorgeous garments.
But the happily-ever-after ending for the fashion messiah turns into a nightmare when his dresses acquire a life of their own, gaining energy and evil as time goes on. Haunted by his creations, a dark secret he is no longer able to hide, Oscar finds himself fighting for his life and sanity, and searching for the answer to a question he never knew existed.
Is there such a thing as stolen genius, and if there is, can it turn against the very person who stole it?
Oscar is such a fitting character. He's full of life and character, and I loved that the story was written in a way to give such an intimate peak into his mind and life. I enjoyed the layout of the book, like a journal, and think it was clever of West to write this way.
Again, this is something entirely unique. It was an amazing read and really surprised and entertained me the entire time. If you're looking for a refreshing read that is written flawlessly, look no further!
**I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review with no compensation.
She was born in Finland, has studied in London and Florence – where she completed a doctorate in political science and published a book based on it – and now lives in an old, isolated farmhouse in Chianti with her husband and son, and a German ghost. (Yes, you might hear some German murmured on a moonlit November’s night…)
Katarina is currently working on a new novel – and, writing and country life permitting, tries to read anything and everything well-written that comes into her hands.
