This book is brilliant. Laini Taylor is a master storyteller. The characters are well written with a mix of the heroic, damaged and villainous. I didn't want to put this book down as the story swept me away. With a sucker punch ending I'm so glad I have the second book on my TBR pile

So Sunday plans are tea and reading, I haven't stopped sneezing since I woke up...just hoping it's hayfever and not the lurgie🤧.

I'm really getting into this story, it has some great characters and a promising mystery adventure with monsters & gods a plenty.

I should get into the habit of reviewing books right away or jotting down things I want to say because I finished this Thursday and forgot all the lovely things I wanted to say already. I loved this fantasy as it pertains to storytelling, dreams, a library and destiny. This should be a blurb instead of a review by rights because I‘m afraid of giving away spoilers. Though written for teens, a few parts made be get giddy with delight in a “yes!”

Palimpsest Moment. Clearly the worst review I‘ve ever written, but I‘m tired. Just know that I found it delightful and original and I‘m going to read the sequel soon. 3w
kgriffith Sequel is even better, and thankfully already out as that cliffhanger was awful 😋 3w
Palimpsest @kgriffith wow, that‘s awesome as I‘ve read quite a few series where the sequel pales in comparison to the first. And yes, I agree about the cliffhanger being awful! 3w

This is one of the most romantic books I've read in a long time, not romantic in the sense of "love story romance"; but romantic in lushes writing and awe-inspiring story telling.
This is my first introduction to Laini Taylor and though I've heard a lot about her Daughter of Smoke & Bone Series, I've never acquire them. That will obviously changed!

Continue in comments:?

Enchanted_Bibliophile Laini just speaks to your soul, she opens your eyes to a world so vivid, so incredibly real you walk into it as you walk into a well beloved dream. Her imagination sets a light the second heart you never knew you possessed. Orphaned Librarians and half-human children of murdered gods becomes your dearest friends, you live and dream in their worlds.
I'm still amazed at how this story played out and how incredibly involved I was in all of it.

This is my absolute favorite book so far this year. And totally unexpected as I bought it on a whim after reading one rave of a review.

Any other Lazlo fans?

How long do I leave the book hangover to pass before moving onto Muse of Nightmares?

“What‘s a horizon?” Lazlo asked, straight-faced. “Is it like the end of an aisle of books?”

He had loved the library, and had felt, as a boy, as though it had a kind of sentience, and perhaps loved him back. But even if it was just walls and a roof with papers inside, it had bewitched him, and drawn him in, and given him everything he needed to become himself.

4/5⭐ I want to be Lazlo's friend. His humor & camaraderie with others, like the librarians at the beginning, were wonderful. The romance slowed down the pace a lot, but the absolutely gorgeous writing made it a worthwhile experience in itself. The ending was epic and foreshadowed well, but ultimately I didn't care so much for it. I'm invested in Lazlo and hoping the sequel doesn't drift too far away from what makes him such a great character.

“You think good people can't hate?” she asked. “You think good people don't kill?” [...] “Good people do all the things bad people do, Lazlo. It's just that when they do them, they call it justice.”

kgriffith @TheBookKeepers I thoroughly enjoyed it! I feel like even though the narration is great, I kind of wish I had time to sit and read because I would be devouring this series rather than taking it at the moderate pace of an audiobook at normal speed 🤓 2mo

Strange the Dreamer - Laini Taylor 3.5🌟

An enjoyable story of a founding who has a dream of a far off city that no one remembers the name of but everyone calls weep. Hidden secrets rise to the fore in this advemture and tragic heartache abounds. https://t.co/oe0e2g3856

1. Party at my bf‘s brother‘s house. Pinching as many people as possible. Jk
2. I bought one of those oysters on a pier in San Francisco when I was in college. It had a black pearl in it! I also found a four leaf clover in my backyard a few years ago.
3. Tagged. It was so good!

This book was very good. I hated the ending though. So there‘s that. It was very well written. Almost poetry in places instead of prose. I‘ll probably read the next one to see what happens. You know, once I‘ve gotten over that ending.

This author had a great way of describing emotions. I felt anger, love and betrayal with Lazlo. She described hate so well, the way you can hear it in a voice, and how anger is a closed fist and gritted teeth. Art is by taratjah on Instagram.
