I haven't done a Waiting on Wednesday in a while and truthfully I have no idea if it's still an active meme, but there are still upcoming books that I want to highlight and be excited over and I love looking around all the other blogs to see what I might not know about - because my TBR always needs new books on it!
My pick this week is Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor. I've never read her books (YET!!!!) but Daughter of Smoke and Bone has been on my TBR forever. This one sounds really intriguing and is a YA fantasy (high fantasy too I believe) with paranormal and magical elements.
|Expected publication: March 28th 2017|
by Hodder & Stoughton
A brand new, heart-stopping novel and the first in a thrilling duology from the much-loved author of the DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE trilogy, Laini Taylor.
The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around - and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he's been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance to lose his dream forever.
What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?
The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries - including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo's dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? And if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?
In this sweeping and breathtaking new novel by National Book Award finalist Laini Taylor, author of the New York Times bestselling Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, the shadow of the past is as real as the ghosts who haunt the citadel of murdered gods. Fall into a mythical world of dread and wonder, moths and nightmares, love and carnage.
