I read Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke and Bone earlier this year and I was in awe after I finished. It was my first foray into YA angel fiction and, wow, what a first impression. It definitely lead me to checking out other angel related books, like the Unearthly series and I hope to read many more. Daughter of Smoke and Bone not only introduced me to something new, but it's also one of the best books I've ever read. The premise and world-building alone is unlike anything I've ever seen, and the way the book unfolds is utterly and completely mind-blowing. I won't say anymore because for those who haven't read it yet, it's too good to give away even the smallest thing.
I honestly can't even properly express how excited I am for this release. I mean, that cover. That name. Days of Blood and Starlight. Talk about stunning. I think that just might be my favorite name for a book.
Whether you're not really familiar with this series or you haven't gotten around to it yet for whatever reason, remember, there's still plenty of time to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone between now and November 6th!
So, what book are you counting down the days for? Please feel free to link me to yours. =)
