Read from July 16th, 2018 to August 17th, 2018.
Well I’m excited to see what the future holds in this fantasy trilogy, the Daughter of Smoke and Bone Series by Laini Taylor. I just finished reading the first in the series, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, and it was okay.
All I knew before reading it was that it’s about angels and demons and that it had beautiful language. If you like a story about star-crossed lovers from rivaling families, here’s a series for you. It’s true that the language was pretty. It kept it fresh enough to just keep turning the pages. The reviews said I wouldn’t be able to put the book down. It’s not my favorite series, but I really couldn’t put it down. Weird. I can’t put my finger on what bothered me. It might’ve been the places around the world she went that I wasn’t familiar with or the distracting name choices. But I did like. It wasn’t a fast-paced book, but for some reason I couldn’t stop turning the pages.
I’m giving Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor a 4/5 stars. My rating system is as follows:
- My rating system stands: 5/5 is a knock out of the park; this book deserves to be read by everyone. 4/5 is, “I really liked it,” but it did have a couple of kinks. 3/5 is, “I believe there are a lot of people who would enjoy this book, but for one reason or another, it didn’t sit well with me.” 2/5 is, “I really didn’t enjoy it and I’m not going to recommend it.” 1/5 is, “no one read this – throw it in a lake.”
