TBR Tuesday: Daughter of Smoke and Bone

So good to be back!!! It's Tuesday - time to talk about a book in our To Be Read stack. This week I'm telling you that you HAVE HAVE HAVE to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Lainey Taylor. I got the ARC at Comic Con and it's beautiful and haunting and has amazing prose and imagery and setting and mythology. Definitely pick it up when it comes out in a couple weeks!

Goodreads Synopsis:
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 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 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?

Make sure to pick up this book when it comes out, and in the meantime you can find Laini on her blog and on Twitter.
