Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases.
Ok, this comes out THIS MONTH. I should have done this for an earlier Waiting on Wednesday but I’m so disorganised but I definitely want to highlight this book on our blog (because AHHH) so HERE IT IS:
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
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 to 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?
In this sweeping and breathtaking new novel by National Book Award finalist Laini Taylor, author of the New York Times bestselling Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, the shadow of the past is as real as the ghosts who haunt the citadel of murdered gods. Fall into a mythical world of dread and wonder, moths and nightmares, love and carnage.
Welcome to Weep.

Laini Taylor is a phenomenal writer so there was no doubt her new release was going to be one of my most highly anticipated books this year. I used the UK cover because I absolutely love it (that’s not to say the US cover isn’t lovely), but the UK cover is 😍. Who else is totally and utterly excited for Strange the Dreamer?
