28145767 This week I am waiting on
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

Publication Date: September 27th 2016

Goodreads Summary
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.

Ever since devouring the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy, I have been eagerly awaiting for Strange the Dreamer. The synopsis is mysterious to say the least and that makes me a lot more intrigued. What I do know is that this book will undoubtedly be beautifully written and dreamlike. I have no idea what to expect but I know that I will most likely be captivated. 

If you’re still unsure about this book I suggest reading this excerpt and if that hasn’t convinced you to add the book to your to be read list I don’t know what will. 😛

What’s your most anticipated book?

  1. Wow. The cover on this one is stunning. I want to read it just for that. Although. I’m not sure if I will. I loved the first 2/3 of Daughter of Smoke and Bone but hated the last 1/3. This sounds kind of more like the part that I didn’t like than the part that I did. It might be worth a try, though!

    1. The cover alone is enough to make me buy it, It’s just so pretty. I understand your reservations. I had some issues with the third book in the Smoke and Bone trilogy. Hopefully this book will deliver the goods. 😀

    1. I know. I was practically drooling when I first saw the cover haha. Laini’s writing is beautiful and very dreamlike in a way so I’d definitely recommend her books. 😀


  2. I am really looking forward to this book! Not only is the cover absolutely gorgeous, but after reading the excerpt the writing is simply beautiful. I cannot wait to have this book in my hands and just devour it 🙂

  3. That summary honestly is so badass! I just want to read the book ASAP! I’m very disappointed with the covers though. 😦 They could have come up with some really cool concepts given how creative the book seems to be. Oh well, maybe it will look better in person!
    I hope you’ll love this when you get the chance to read it, Lois!

    1. The summary is epic and is such a tease cause I am desperate to know more about this world haha. I quite like the colours of the cover. It’s very dreamlike and for some reason quite serene but I definitely think they could have done something more with it, espeically after how beautiful the covers for the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy are. 🙂


  4. I thought I was desperate for this when I saw the blurb – but then the teaser of the first page dropped and holy sh– I NEED IT. Laini Taylor writes so well, I love her descriptions and lyrical language so much *cries with yearning*

    1. haha I know. I was coping pretty well with the wait for this book and then I read that teaser and now my patience is wearing thin. I adore Laini’s writing. It’s just so dreamlike and I never know what to expect from her books. 😀
