Anna-Marie McLemore has incredible talent for atmosphere and interpersonal dynamics, so making a set of character aesthetics seemed like a fitting tribute to Wild Beauty: its striking visuals, the fascinating cast, and all the little details that add up to a story.
To this day, my original Goodreads Tips and Tricks post is one of my top posts. I’ve continued to use those features, and I’ve also picked up several more in the interim that I’ll be sharing with you today. As always, feel free to skim for what’s new and exciting to you!
