Waiting on Wednesday (14)


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

My Waiting on Wednesday this week is:

Title: Daughters of Smoke and Bone
Author: Laini Taylor
Genre: YA Fantasy / Paranormal / Romance
Release Date: September 27th
See it at Goodreads

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? --Goodreads

This book sounds absolutely enchanting! I can't wait to pick it up soon!

What are you waiting on?



  1. I acquired a signed arc of this book at the BEA, am currently in the middle of reading it and absolutely loving it! I want to take a day off just to read it through!

    I'm waiting on The Fault in Our Stars as well as The Name of the Star =D

  2. Oh! So lucky! I can't wait to read it. :) I don't believe I've heard of The Fault in Our Stars yet, I will have to look that one up. The Name of the Star is also on my "Waiting" list as well! Excited for that one, too! =D
    Hope you're having a great week!
