February Book Club Pick! Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

After hearing so many things about this  book, Tiffany and I decided it was time that we join in and find out what we were missing. So this month I picked:

Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone, #1)
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 otherwordly 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?
Can't wait to see why everyone loves this book. Same as last month, if any of you want to join in just let us know in the comments. And let us know if any of you have already read this one and what you thought about it! Our reviews will be up towards the end of the month.


  1. I hope you enjoy it!! I loved it. I still have to read Days of Blood and Starlight. I just need to find time. Sorry I have been such a suckish commenter lately. I will be better, I promise. I didn't forget about you. :)

  2. I recently got a copy from this book! I also can't wait to see why everybody is so raving about it :D It does sound like a great book. Happy reading!
