daughterofsmokeandbonetrilogy:

This is the first line you’ll read in Daughter of Smoke & Boneand you won’t stop until you get to the last.

From National Book Award Finalist Laini Taylor comes the New York Times bestselling trilogy about forbidden love, an ancient and epic battle, and hope for a world remade. 

Entertainment Weekly says it’s “thrillingly fresh and new,” and Wired calls it “the next Next Big Thing”, but start reading and see for yourself: Amazon | B&N | Indiebound

"Reading alters the appearance of a book. Once it has been read, it never looks the same again, and people leave their individual imprint on a book they have read. Once of the pleasures of reading is seeing this alteration on the pages, and the way, by reading it, you have made the book yours."

— Paul Theroux, The Old Patagonian Express: By Train Through the Americas (via bookishleaves)
