Title:  Days of Blood & Starlight
Author:  Laini Taylor
Series:  2nd book in the Daughter of Smoke & Bone series
Publisher:  Little, Brown & Company
Publication Date:  November 6, 2012

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 declared a "must read" by Entertainment Weekly, was named a Best Book of the Year by, and The New York Times called it "a breath-catching romantic fantasy."

Why I'm waiting:  After reading DoSaB, I immediately began anticipating the sequel, but then they go and release the cover, and now November can't get here soon enough!  DoSaB was one of my favorite reads last year, combining an awesome fantasy world with our own world and throwing a bit of romance in there for good measure.  It was one of those books I practically read cover-to-cover, and I enjoyed it so much that I listened to the audio a short time after reading the book and loved the story even more the second time around.  I can't wait to find out what Karou's next move will be, especially after the revelations at the end of DoSaB.

If you've read it, what did you think of DoSaB?  And what are you waiting on this week?  Share it in the comments!

  8. I am waiting for this one as well! I can’t wait to get it!

  9. I still need to read the first book in this series, but I've heard a ton of great things about it. And the cover for this one is so beautiful! I love the colors. Great pick!

  10. One of my favorite books of all time, from cover to cover. I didn't think that I could love the new cover as much as I loved DoSaB cover, but I think I may just love the cover of Days of Blood and Starlight even more. And I have no doubt in my mind that I will love whats in that book too!

  11. Wow, LOVE the cover!! This is a new series to me - I'll definitely have to check it out.

    I also noticed you're reading My Life Next Door right now... and I'm soooo jealous!!! That's on my WoW this week! :)
