Reverse Thursday: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor


 Reverse Thursday is a feature/MeMe that I think I came up with. I haven't seen anything like it around. If there is I'm sorry just let me know, and I can give credit where due. :)
What is Reverse Thursday you ask?
Well I started thinking that we give so much love to those books that we are waiting on that aren't released yet that maybe we forget those that have been out for awhile. I know I'm totally horrible about this.That's why so many older books go unread by me. So to fix that problem Reverse Thursday was born. It's kind of like a TBT (Throwback Thursday for books)

What I picked this week?

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Published September 27th 2011 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Outline:Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.

In a dark and dusty shop, a devil’s supply of human teeth grows dangerously low.

And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.

Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real, she’s prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands", she speaks many languages - not all of them human - and her bright blue hairactually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out.

When beautiful, haunted Akiva fixes fiery eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?
 


Why I picked this?
I'm a little late to the game on this one as well, but I've seen nothing but awesome reviews, and it's a finished series so double yea!

  2. I'm so bad at finishing a series...I really did love this one though and plan on re-reading it and finishing off the series.

    1. I hear ya about finishing a series I really am bad at it as well. I think in my mind I wait for the series to be finished, and by that time I've kind of forgotten about it. Hopefully this will help.
