Embark on a dark and lush journey through the land of Whichwood in this stunning companion to Tahereh Mafi’s acclaimed bestseller Furthermore. Our story begins on a frosty night . . . Laylee can barely remember the happier times before her beloved mother died. Before her father, driven by grief, lost his wits (and his way). Before she was the left as the sole remaining mordeshoor in the village of Whichwood, destined to spend her days washing the bodies of the dead and preparing their souls for the afterlife. It's become easy to forget and easier still to ignore her own ever increasing loneliness and the way her hands are stiffening and turning silver, just like her hair. But soon, a pair of familiar strangers appear, and Laylee's world is turned upside down as she rediscovers color, magic, and the healing power of friendship. Lush and darkly enchanting, critically-acclaimed author Tahereh Mafi weaves an all-new magical adventure in this companion to the New York Times bestselling Furthermore.
there’s nothing better than making a mood board for an especially ~moody~ book. i only read the first few pages of Whichwood but i already can feel ALL THE VIBES; the urges to go on weheartit to make a mood board was too real. my favorite part was definitely looking for “models” wearing hijabs since the main character, Laylee, wears one! all the people who popped up were so fashionable and gorgeous; I’M A PUDDLE OF ENVY. since i didn’t get too far in my reading, i wasn’t really sure what the roses meant but i’m positive they’re important. there are roses on the cover and littered throughout the novel.
anyway, i hope you enjoyed browsing the photos i chose for my mood board (above)! it should give you all the good vibes to get into the book. *winks*
