Loving this book 💙
One of my favorite books the reread. . . Laini Taylor‘s book worlds are the places I most wish I could live.
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

Just realised I haven't posted anything here in ages! I'm currently reading Strange the Dreamer and am really enjoying it so far.
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!”
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!

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?
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.
I‘m gonna have to go through the book profile and tell everyone responsible for my reading this one that you‘re all damned lucky the second one was immediately available, because that cliffhanger...!!! 😝
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
Every time I think to myself, ”my nails are all about the same length, I should give myself a manicure tonight,” I inevitably break a nail. As I had the thought yesterday and didn‘t break one between then and now, I thought I‘d better jump on this tonight. #audiomani
“...A sand beast that could survive for years eating nothing but its own molted skin. Hate could do that too, live off nothing but itself. But not forever.”
I‘ve mostly been in the car while listening to this so haven‘t posted about it yet, but I‘m really enjoying it. The world building is good, and the prose is lovely.
One of the most beautiful books I have ever read.
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!
4. I‘m not much of a history buff. Thomas Edison, I guess.
“On the second Sabbat of Twelfthmoon, in the city of Weep, a girl fell from the sky.”
Right from the first sentence, Laini Taylor had me hooked with this beautiful fantasy book. It features stunning prose with a heartbreaking plot. Even so, I wish it were a real place...
#Lunchtimereading This book was a slow start for me but I‘m glad I stuck with it!
Two days to finish this one then on to the next in a hurry to get to all these ones from my holds that of course came up all at once!!
Yay! Book mail. #LitsyMadeMeDoIt
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.

"On the second Sabbat of Twelfthmoon, in the city of Weep, a girl fell from the sky. Her skin was blue, her blood was red." What a way to start a book!! Art is by Melanie Bourgeois or meliescribbles on most platforms.
