I’m reviewing #FashionVictim.
#FashionVictim by Amina Akhtar – Retail Value $26.99
Book Summary from Amazon:
A darkly thrilling take on the fashion world, #FashionVictim is Heathers meets The Devil Wears Prada.
Fashion editor Anya St. Clair is on the verge of greatness. Her wardrobe is to die for. Her social media is killer. And her career path is littered with the bodies of anyone who got in her way. She’s worked hard to get where she is, but she doesn’t have everything.
Not like Sarah Taft. Anya’s obsession sits one desk away. Beautiful, stylish, and rich, she was born to be a fashion world icon. From her beach-wave blonde hair to her on-trend nail art, she’s a walking editorial spread. And Anya wants to be her friend. Her best friend. Her only friend.
But when Sarah becomes her top competition for a promotion, Anya’s plan to win her friendship goes into overdrive. In order to beat Sarah…she’ll have to become her. Friendly competition may turn fatal, but as they say in fashion: One day you’re in, and the next day you’re dead.
This month I decided to go a bit outside my book comfort zone with this pick. (Typically I stick to books where I like/admire the protagonist.) But this book piqued my interest with “Heathers meets The Devil Wears Prada,” and so far it is delivering. It’s dark, unique, and it most importantly – it grabbed my interest with the very first chapter and I’m flying through it. If you are looking for a book that’s hard to put down, I recommend it.
And Book of the Month includes a bookmark every month, too!
This month’s book also included some promotional nail stickers:
UPDATE – it appears as though subscribers did not receive the nail art stickers.
If you picked this book this month, please let me know what you think of it!
Verdict: The value of the Book of the Month subscription is great. The variety of new books offered is awesome and the prices are still better than Amazon for new hardcover releases. If one book a month won’t cut it, you can also add-ons books from previous months for $9.99. I like that you also have the option to skip a month.
And I love that I got this book before it was even officially released!
