Waiting on Wednesday #60


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor
Series: Daughter of Smoke and Bone #2
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company
Expected Publication: November 6th, 2012
Format: Hardcover, eBook, Audio
Pages: 304
Goodreads Summary:
In this stunning sequel to the highly acclaimed "Daughter of Smoke and Bone," Karou must come to terms with who and what she is, and how far she'll go to avenge her people. Filled with heartbreak and beauty, mysteries and secrets, new characters and old favorites, Days of Blood and Starlight brings the richness, color and intensity of the first book to a brand new canvas.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone was declared a "must read" by Entertainment Weekly, was named a Best Book of the Year by Amazon.com, and The New York Times called it "a breath-catching romantic fantasy."

It's almost been a whole year since I've read Daughter of Smoke and Bone and ever since I've been dying to get my hands on a copy of its sequel. The ending broke my heart a little bit and I'm hoping that Days of Blood & Starlight can mend it again. Is it November yet?

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?

  4. You know, I may be one of the only people who didn't completely fall in love with DOSAB but I'm actually looking forward to this! Perhaps it's because Laini's writing is just SO. FREAKING. DROOL-WORTHY. And ahh I can't wait to get lost in her words and the world she's created again! Awesome pick, Carina :)

  7. Awesome pick, Carina! :D I have not read book one yet.. but I do own it. And I have pre-ordered this one ;p Haven't read it yet because I have seen the ending; and I wish to know what happens in book two before I start book one :p Hih. I'm weird like that ;p But I still think I will love the book. :) Since both sound so good :D Hope you'll love it once it comes out. :)
    Love, Carina

Isn't the cover stunning? I totally freaked out when I saw it. Excellent pick, Carina! I'll be waiting in agony with you! lol :)
