  • Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
    Can I live in this world?

    I am in love with Lazlo Strange. A weird confession but I'm also in love with the entire world that this book is set in. The Kingdom of Zosma and the City of Weep are fantastical places filled with imagination, knowledge and an intriguing mystery.

    Everyone has forgotten the real name of the City of Weep and it has led Lazlo on a quest to discovering where the city lies, while also getting involved in other events along the way. The prose and pacing were excellent and the world building felt subtle and like coats of paint. Taylor let one coat of world-building dry before she added another and it felt natural.

    As a lover of myths as well, I loved how much they were incorporated into the story and how they affected the plot overall. There was just so much that I kept cheering and fanboying over in the novel. I couldn't help but love the story the more I read it. Read More
