"Waiting On" Wednesday (5): Days of Blood and Starlight

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

Book: Days of Blood and Starlight (Daughter of Smoke and Bone #2) by Laini Taylor
Publication Date: November 6, 2012
Publisher: Little, Brown & Company

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, and The New York Times called it "a breath-catching romantic fantasy." - Goodreads

So...that cover.. Huh. Still speechless, my friends. *clears throat* I LOVE IT! Last week, my WoW was Jay Kristoff's Stormdancer which was super awesome by the way so you should all add it to your wishlist and TBR. But you know what, Stormdancer and Days of Blood & Starlight share something in common. Obviously, they will both rock the socks off your bookshelves but really, both their covers color palette is so appealing. I mean it's red. Red! I love red.

Anyway, Daughter of Smoke and Bone was one of my best reads last 2011 so I'm definitely looking forward to this one. November please be a darling and come soon.

  1. Great pick! I haven't read the first one yet but I've been planning to. I might save it until closer to the release of the second book since my tbr pile is so big anyway (:
