Book Club Friday

Today I am linking up with Blonde...Undercover Blonde  for Book Club Friday! I am on holiday for 2 weeks so I am getting a heap of reading done! I just finished this book...

Daughter Of Smoke And Bone by Laini Taylor

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?

My Thoughts
I really enjoyed this book, its very YA and reminds me a bit of The Mortal Instruments and Hush Hush, so if you are a fan of those then this book is for you! The fact that its set in Prague and its put a twist on the angel concept makes it an interesting read, and not as cliche as it could be! It has strong characters, fantastic twists, and a good strong story! Definitely give it a go!

Its only downfall is the sequel doesn't come out for a while and I want to know what happens next!

They are generally really good! Nothing too dramatic, just a fun, easy read that I love to obsess over! You should definitely give them a go :D

I may have to add this to my 'to-read' lists. I'm reading the Fallen series now which is an angles story. This sounds interesting. Thanks for the review.
