On My Wishlist (5)

On My Wishlist is a weekly meme hosted by Book Chick City, and runs every Saturday. It’s where we list all the books we desperately want but haven’t actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming.

On my Wishlist this week, I have Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor.

It came out September of this year, and I’ve heard so many good things about it. It’s on my wishlist for Christmas, so maybe I’ll get it then!

Description:

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 grown 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 hair actually 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 one of the strangers–beautiful, haunted Akiva–fixes his fire-colored 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?

  1. Enjoy your book when you get it. I’ve completed my GoodReads challenge and I have a pile of ex-wishlist books to read. I want to get through them by New Year’s. Please come see what I’m reading and what I’m wishing for.

I love comments! Feel free to leave one, and if it doesn't show up right away don't worry, I just have to approve it.
