Title: Daughter of Smoke & Bone
Author: Laini Taylor
Series: Daughter of Smoke and Bone #1
My rating: 4/5 stars
Date read: 3/9/18
I have no idea what to rate this book at the moment. I want to give the first 320 pages 5 stars. The last 100 pages 3 stars. So I will just have to give it 4 for now.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone is one of the top ten books I want to read in 2018. I heard such great things about Lani Taylor's books and I heard her writing was phenomenal so naturally I wanted to read something she wrote.
Despite hearing about this book often, I actually had no clue what the book was about before I read it. Because of this I was a tad confused in the beginning of the story but I was very interested at the same time.
This book is about a girl name Karou who is an art student. She is a very talented artist and her sketchbook is filled with drawings of mythical creatures and monsters. She also constantly disappears running errands, and her hair is actually blue. In this world there are also weird burnt hand prints and strange winged creatures flying about.
I had high expectation but not extremely high expectations when going into this book. I was very surprised to find that my expectations were met in the first 300 pages of the book. It was interesting, the writing was gorgeous and I wanted to know what was going to happen next. The last 100 pages to me though were kind of boring but once in a while I would become very interested in the story again.
I really liked Karou the main character but my favorite character is probably Zuzana. I just really like her. She is cares about Karou and wants to make sure she is okay when she is troubled situations. In general she is such a good friend to Karou and I hope to see her more in the future books.
Overall I really did enjoy this book and would recommend it. I will also be continuing on with this series in the future because I want to finish this trilogy before reading Strange the Dreamer.
