Book Thoughts: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

April 23, 2017

Complex and shatteringly beautiful, Strange the Dreamer is yet another fine piece of work by the incomparable Laini Taylor. It’s no secret that I will read anything and everything she writes, so I had been counting down the days until I had this book in my hands.

Taylor’s signature writing is as strong as ever, complete with luscious descriptions that bring every detail to life and a cast of intriguing characters who add significant color to the story. It did take me a little while to become fully invested in the plot and some of the characters, but once I did, I wanted nothing more than to keep the book from ending. I wanted to live amongst these words, to bask in them, and to let them be my world. There is romance and there is heartache; there is creation and destruction. Revenge and forgiveness and sorrow and beauty—all wrapped up in a single heartbreaking and breathtaking story.

Strange the Dreamer is pure magic that should be savored from start to finish.
