Waiting on Wednesday: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

June 15, 2016 Uncategorized 42

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.  My pick this week is a new book by an author that I have read one of  her books in her another one of her series, but haven’t finished that series yet, even though I need to!  Seeing everyone with the little chapter samplers or swag packs for this from BEA made me very jealous!  Anyway, here is the blurb from Goodreads:

Strange the Dreamer is the story of:

the aftermath of a war between gods and men
a mysterious city stripped of its name
a mythic hero with blood on his hands
a young librarian with a singular dream
a girl every bit as perilous as she is imperiled
alchemy and blood candy, nightmares and godspawn, moths and monsters, friendship and treachery, love and carnage.

Welcome to Weep.

So, it sounds pretty interesting.  I’m especially intrigued by the librarian bit.  Have you read any books by this author?  What book are you eagerly awaiting this week?

    YES I am totally waiting on this right with you Lisa^^ I adored Laini's DoS&B trilogy and will basically pick up anything and everything she writes. Her gorgeous prose is to die for ♥ I can't wait to see what she has in store for us here 😀 Excellent pick! x

    I haven't read anything by Laini Taylor, but this might be my first! The cover is so beautiful and the synopsis really intriguing! I like how they kept it vague.

    I've heard good things about Laini Taylor, and I've been tempted to check out Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Hope you enjoy this one.

    While the cover is beautiful the summary here sounds like someone was snorting some 'magic dust' (drugs) when they wrote it. 'Blood candy, moth, godspawn..' what? How the hell did that all come together and don't tell me that the book will explain this. Sure it's great and I'll find out more. But I'm girding my book mind. No magic dust!
