Aesthetic: FIREBORNE by Rosaria Munda


I'm always on the hunt for ways to shake up my coverage of books, and have been wanting for awhile to start doing more pictorial and photographic features (I have so many plans, y'all! And so much broken technology!*). So the opportunity to do a moodboard / aesthetic of a book that was high on my 2019 wishlist wasn't something to pass up.

That book is Fireborne, and it is one of the many things I'm currently in the middle of reading. It's a dragon fantasy, which I've become more and more infatuated with, but the thing I'm most excited for is that it has quickly become known for its deft philosophical threads (it's based on Plato's Republic!) and actual consequences for the characters decisions.
And also, dragons. Win, win, win.

For my aesthetic, I chose to represent Annie, one of the book's two main characters: her fiery hair and freckles, her amber dragon and the special fireproof armor she must wear, and most importantly, the silver and gold band she wears, a rare combination indicating her dual talents...


Fireborne hit stores yesterday, and is also one of this month's Book of the Month YA club picks!

Is Fireborne on your list of books to read? I've yet to hear a bad thing about it, and I'm enjoying it so far. Let me know in the comments!


*yes, my computer keyboard is still only half-working. Yes, both of my phone cameras are broken. WHY. 😓)


FIREBORNE by Rosaria Munda

Annie and Lee were just children when a brutal revolution changed their world, giving everyone--even the lowborn--a chance to test into the governing class of dragonriders.

Now they are both rising stars in the new regime, despite backgrounds that couldn't be more different. Annie's lowborn family was executed by dragonfire, while Lee's aristocratic family was murdered by revolutionaries. Growing up in the same orphanage forged their friendship, and seven years of training have made them rivals for the top position in the dragonriding fleet.

But everything changes when survivors from the old regime surface, bent on reclaiming the city.

With war on the horizon and his relationship with Annie changing fast, Lee must choose to kill the only family he has left or to betray everything he's come to believe in. And Annie must decide whether to protect the boy she loves . . . or step up to be the champion her city needs.

From debut author Rosaria Munda comes a gripping adventure that calls into question which matters most: the family you were born into, or the one you've chosen.
