Waiting on Wednesday - Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor






Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine,  that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating or books that are in our TBR pile.  This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is


Summary (by Goodreads)

The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around— and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he's been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance to lose his dream forever.

What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?

The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries—including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo's dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? and if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?

I was drawn to this book because of the interesting title but I have been wanting to read a Laini Taylor book for years. I hear great things about her writing style.  Anyone else?

  1. I read this one and I really enjoyed it! I've only read the Smoke & Bone series in addition to this book, of Laini's books, but this one might be my favorite. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Christinabean. =)
