Waiting on Wednesday (#171): Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
Book One of the Strange the Dreamer series
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: September 27, 2016

Summary (from Goodreads):

Strange the Dreamer is the story of: 

the aftermath of a war between gods and men
a mysterious city stripped of its name
a mythic hero with blood on his hands
a young librarian with a singular dream
a girl every bit as perilous as she is imperiled
alchemy and blood candy, nightmares and godspawn, moths and monsters, friendship and treachery, love and carnage.

Welcome to Weep.



I adored Laini's Smoke & Bone series! This new book has been a long time coming. :)

  1. I wasn't even sure what this was about but I have been anticipating this because well I've heard others rave about wanting it and after reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone finally (though my continuation is going slowly) I can see why! Great pick.

    1. It does! And I must say, I am not the biggest fan of the cover either... it's just okay. I prefer the non-USA cover!

  6. This is one that I will be waiting on a few reviews before I decide. It looks good, but I never read her other series.

  20. I wish I could rock Laini Taylor's pink hair! As I wouldn't be able to, I'll just devotedly await for her new book. Love, love Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy!!

  21. Ohh great pick Alyssa! I absolutely love the cover it is absolutely gorgeous! I haven't read any books by Laini Taylor yet I know what am I waiting for. I heard nothing but amazing raving reviews about her Daughter of Smoke & Bone Trilogy. I won't lie I really want to read The Daughter of Smoke & Bone Trilogy but there are huge books and I am not a fan of big books there really are intimidating for me lol. But alas I might one day check them out from the library one by one and see if I like them or not. But I would like too check out Strange the Dreamer as well when it comes out hopefully it isn't a huge book as well. Ha lol Thank you for your awesome post Alyssa!

  24. This cover is quite striking. I'm not much a fan of ADSOM, but I think I'll give this one a try because Taylor DOES have a writing talent. :)
