“Have you asked yourself, do monsters make war, or does war make monsters?”
Around the world, black hand prints 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 otherworldly 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 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?
“But dreaming is like the garden. You can step out of prison and feel the sky around you. In a dream you can be anywhere. You can be free.”
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 or 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?
Hello people! It’s already 2018 and I know that it is quite late to post my best or favorite reads of 2017 but better late than never. And to make this post more interesting I decided to do the concept of awards night like the Oscar and I choose some categories that I think would best fit a bookish awards.
Without further ado, here are the best books of 2017!
Hello everyone! It’s been so long since my last blog. Lots of changes happened in my life in the span of 3 months and I’m thankful for those changes. However, I am still adjusting and finding time to schedule blogging, reading and just relaxing. And as a part of those changes, I would only do quarterly book hauls because I am not hoarding as much books as I do before. And as a proof for that, I only accumulated 11 books in a span of 3 months. I’m so proud of myself!
So before I talk about other things that are not really related with my book haul, I would like to present to you the books that I acquired from January to March!
Whenever I scroll through my feeds and my YouTube subscription channels, I always see this Top 5 thing popping up. So I decided to do one! Below are the top 5 authors whose writing style is something that I truly enjoy reading. They’re not my all-time favorite authors or my auto-buy authors but I just love reading their books because of how they express and embodies emotions from the characters. Shall we get into it?
I know it is late to post this but better late than never. I’m so busy with my college life and I’m a graduating student, I am not really anticipating many books this year. I am only anticipating sequels from series that I have been meaning to read and sitting on my shelf for quite some time. I really like reading book series in marathons, although I am having this bad habit of setting aside the last book and I don’t know what is wrong with me. Anyways, here are my most anticipated books of 2016!
My queen, Laini Taylor, will have a new novel this 2016. Exactly September 27, 2016. The title of her new novel is “Strange the Dreamer”. I can’t contain my excitement!! I don’t know if this will be a trilogy or a series, well I hope it will be a series.
I just love Laini Taylor’s writing style, please let it be a series.♥
Here’s the synopsis of the Strange the Dream:
Strange the Dream 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 carnate.
Welcome to Weep.
Now that’s a very catchy synopsis!! I want to fast forward to September 27, 2016 because of this. I can’t wait.♥
