In the wake of tragedy, neither Lazlo nor Sarai are who they were before. One a god, the other a ghost, they struggle to grasp the new boundaries of their selves as dark-minded Minya holds them hostage, intent on vengeance against Weep.

Lazlo faces an unthinkable choice—save the woman he loves, or everyone else?—while Sarai feels more helpless than ever. But is she? Sometimes, only the direst need can teach us our own depths, and Sarai, the muse of nightmares, has not yet discovered what she’s capable of.

As humans and godspawn reel in the aftermath of the citadel’s near fall, a new foe shatters their fragile hopes, and the mysteries of the Mesarthim are resurrected: Where did the gods come from, and why? What was done with thousands of children born in the citadel nursery? And most important of all, as forgotten doors are opened and new worlds revealed: Must heroes always slay monsters, or is it possible to save them instead?

Love and hate, revenge and redemption, destruction and salvation all clash in this gorgeous sequel to the New York Timesbestseller, Strange the Dreamer.

TTT: Popular Books that Lived Up to the Hype

Captura de ecrã 2018-02-06, às 11.19.18

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 out of a love of lists. It recently changed to That Artsy Reader Girl and that’s where you can find the topics for each Tuesday.

This week’s topic is:

Popular Books that Lived Up to the Hype

I will be mentioning 15 books I remember being late to the party and that definitely got a lot of hype at some point.

I won’t be talking about each of them in particular but this is a list of books that I definitely recommend if you haven’t checked them out yet! Also, if you are interested in checking them out farther, I linked any review I have to the covers.

What are some popular books you think lived up to the hype?

TTT: Bookish Worlds I’d Want to/Never Want to Live In

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 out of a love of lists. It recently changed to That Artsy Reader Girl and that’s where you can find the topics for each Tuesday.

This week’s topic is:

Bookish Worlds I’d Want to/Never Want to Live In

This is such a cool topic! For me, one of the best things about reading is meeting new worlds. That’s why I love fantasy! I can already think of many I would love to live in! Even tho, half of the time fantasy worlds are definitely not the easiest to live in…

I will be mentioning 8 worlds I would love to live in and explaining my top 4! And 8 worlds I just couldn’t possibly endure, and explaining my top 4 as well.

*If I have a review for any of the books mentioned it will be linked to the cover*

Which Bookish Worlds would you love to live in? Which ones you wouldn’t?

This week’s topic is:

Best Character Names (make this as narrow/broad as you’d like)

Well… Dang it. This is difficult as hell! I often forget characters’ names, especially if it’s not the main characters. This will require some proper research haha. But let’s do it! I will be taking names from 10 books for male names and 20 books for female names.

What are some of your favorite character’s names?

April Wrap-up and May TBR

wrapupandtbr

Hey guys!!

I can’t believe we already ended April! It’s passing so fast! Did you guys have a good month? What have you been reading?

This month I had quite a bit to do. I had some tests, a lot to study and I ended up changing my month a bit. I’ve been reading quite a bit of fantasy and some heavy books, so I decided that for this month and especially the next, I will try to make it a bit lighter.

I’ve read only 10 books, 3 of them being very tiny… But I did start 2 others so… Hopefully, next month will be better since I end my test at the beginning of the month!

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton

Genres: YA, Fantasy, Romance
Pages: 536
Format: Hardback

The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around—and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he’s been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance or lose his dream forever.

What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?

The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries—including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo’s dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? And if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?

Welcome to Weep.
