Reading: Daughter of Smoke & Bone, by Laini Taylor

daughter of smoke and bone

I’m finally reading Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke & Bone. It’s been on my to-read list for quite a while now, and as is often the case when I get to a book that I’ve been wanting to read for a while, I end up saying:

What took me so long?!

I really have Suey at It’s All About Books to thank for giving me the nudge I needed to finally read Daughter of Smoke & Bone. Back in December she told me she’d been to a presentation and writing workshop by Laini Taylor where Laini showed how she brainstorms ideas for her books by making lots and lots of lists (I just love this idea, by the way). When I said she’s been on my to-read list for a while now, Suey said, you really have to read her!

So I did.

I am just enthralled with this book. I’m reading it in ebook format, and my ereader tells me I’m on page 232-233 out of 356 pages, so I’m about two-thirds of the way through.

It is so good. From the beginning, the mystery surrounding Karou is so enticing, and I’ve been loving how we learn more as Karou learns more. The world-building is wonderful and the writing is really well done.

I’m glad to say I have Days of Blood & Starlight waiting for me on my ereader. I know what I’ll be reading next …

    Yay! I didn’t read on past the first of the series but I do appreciate what everyone is finding so good. I listened to this one. I can still recall the excellent world-building and interesting characters.
