2B Tuesday #33

2B Tuesday...Where I highlight a book from my endless to-be-read list. Those books need love too!

Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor
Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1
418 pages
Published September 27, 2011 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Goodreads | Amazon | The Book Depository

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?

First off, I love the cover of this book! Second, it has a 4 star rating on Goodreads, which is pretty good for a book. Third, I also own the second book in the series! I found them both at Half Priced Books in pretty much brand new condition. I couldn’t pass it up!  I think what is holding me back is that I have a problem reading about creatures. I like my books to have some sort of believability, if that makes any sense. Regardless, I really need to read it considering I own the first and second one.

Have you read this book? What are your thoughts on it?
