Midnight Designs: A Court of Wallpapers

A-Court-Of-Wallpapers.png

If you follow me on any form of social media, you’ll know that I am pretty much obsessed with A Court of Mist and Fury. Many of my fellow fans have been asking for some wallpapers based off the series. To quote Rhysand, here’s to the dreams that are answered.

  • Free for personal use only.
  • Do not redistribute.
  • Series and quotes belong to the incredible Sarah J Maas.
  • Resolution is for iPhone 6 but should fit onto all phones.

A Court of Thorns and RosesIs anyone surprised I used a Rhysand quote in both these wallpapers? For this, I picked rose motifs for call-back to the Spring Court/Beauty and the Beast, some neat little arrows as a reminder of Feyre’s humble beginning as a huntress, and those masks the Spring Court denizens were stuck wearing. I totally mentally edited out the masks while I was reading the book, though.

A Court of Mist and Fury: Like the rest of the fandom, this is my favourite quotes from one of my favourite scenes. Team Night Court forever. I used motifs of constellations and stars for obvious reasons. I thought it looked like she was winnowing with the feathers (use your imagination and humour me a little here). Let’s not look too closely at her hair/Illyrian leathers in this one though, guys. My redrawing needs work.


If you’re after more Sarah J Maas related wallpapers, I posted some of the Throne of Glass series a while back here. I also started making the wallpapers for Assassin’s Blade and Empire of Storm tonight, but they didn’t really fit into the look of this post so I’ll save them for another day. Follow the blog for update as soon as they’re up!

My other wallpapers for other series can be found here.

Midnight Designs: The Star-Touched Queen Phone Wallpapers

You might have seen me on twitter rambling about how I can’t stop making graphics of The Star-Touched Queen. The imageries this book conjured was so vivid, I could not help but attempt to capture it – even though I don’t think I did it justice at all. If you’re a fan of opulent, transcendent, mythic tales, you should definitely check this book out ASAP.

So if you’ve read my previous posts about the Red Rising series, you’ll know that I am huge fan.

I haven’t been able to string together a coherent review, but I have been making some wallpapers to share.

Blog Tour: The Girl Who Fell + Giveaway + iPhone WallPaper

Book Detail: 

Release Date: March 1st 2016
Publisher: Simon & Schuster/Simon Pulse

Synopsis:

His obsession.
Her fall.
High school senior Zephyr Doyle is swept off her feet—and into an intense relationship—by the new boy in school.
Zephyr is focused. Focused on leading her team to the field hockey state championship and leaving her small town for her dream school, Boston College.
But love has a way of changing things.
Enter the new boy in school: the hockey team’s starting goaltender, Alec. He’s cute, charming, and most important, Alec doesn’t judge Zephyr. He understands her fears and insecurities—he even shares them. Soon, their relationship becomes something bigger than Zephyr, something she can’t control, something she doesn’t want to control.
Zephyr swears it must be love. Because love is powerful, and overwhelming, and…terrifying?
But love shouldn’t make you abandon your dreams, or push your friends away. And love shouldn’t make you feel guilty—or worse, ashamed.
So when Zephyr finally begins to see Alec for who he really is, she knows it’s time to take back control of her life.
If she waits any longer, it may be too late.

This book was exciting in the ways it challenged our expectations and preconception about the YA genre. I feel privileged to be part of the blog tour. I want to share with you how this book turned tropes around on its head – as well as give you two book-inspired iPhone wallpapers to take away!

5 Ways THE GIRL WHO FELL Destroyed YA Tropes

1.  The Side Characters’ Lives Doesn’t Revolve Around The Protagonist

It’s so often the case in YA that many side characters lose their agency, only fulfilling their purpose in the plot as either a dispenser of advice, or a motivation for the protagonist. We hardly glimpse at their own ambitions and plans. Their only goal seem to be servicing the main character in their story.

Zephyr’s best friend, Lizzie, defies this role. Yes, she’s an excellent friend who dispenses many warnings and advice, always steadfast and loyal. But she also has her own life outside: working towards her goal in becoming a journalist, and dealing with her own long distance relationship. Similarly, Gregg has his own group of friends and his own agency. They both love her, but they also love themselves – and that note made the book all the more authentic.

Read At Midnight Designs: Six of Crows

I have been wanting to highlight Six of Crows in a graphics post ever since I read the book. Everything is so quotable, everything is so shippable, everything is so amazing. See my full review for full on gushing.

Read at Midnight Designs: The Wrath and The Dawn

designs

Today’s iPhone Wallpaper freebie feature The Wrath and The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh.  Though my favourite 1001 Nights retelling remains In The Night Garden by Catherynne Valente (READ IT.), this series had way too many swoony, romantic quotes for me to pass up.  My boyfriend needs to start speaking like Khalid ASAP *glares*  Anyway, Shazi/Khalid is totally the OTP of the year *flails waiting for The Rose and The Dagger*!

Read at Midnight Designs: Golden Son iPhone Wallpaper

designs

Today, I have 3 bookish iPhone wallpapers, free for everyone to nab!  Either use them as wallpaper, print them out, pin them, up to you :D!  They were inspired by:

I.  The 3 Quotes, 3 Days meme. I was nominated by The Fiction Fairy + The Bookish Barrister! Thank you both! I didn’t want to do 3 days’ worth of posting so I combined it into one post.

II.  The Potato Prints feature at the Social Potato.  Faye has given me her blessing to do something similar here!

The book being featured on today’s iPhone wallpaper is Golden Son by Pierce Brown.  It was my favourite read last month and you can check out my review here.  I think they will become a regular monthly feature, please leave suggestions if you want to see a certain quote/series or if you want me to offer them in different sizes (e.g. other phones, bookmark size).

Without further adieu, here’s the wallpapers.  Click on the links below each preview image to download the full size from Dropbox!
