"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor. Here's the synopsis:
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 a great book and subsequently everyone is dying to read the sequel. Laini's writing alone makes it lust worthy but the beautiful covers help too. I'm actually liking the US covers right now although it could be argued that they're just pretty and don't necessarily tell you anything about the book. But what about the UK cover? Still pretty but does it tell you anything noteworthy? Not really. Oh well, who cares as I just want to read the damn thing! I recently won an ARC of this so I'm pretty excited to receive it! :)
Days of Blood and Starlight is published in November, 2012 in both the US and the UK.
