Waiting on Wednesday (20): Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, in which bloggers talk about the books they are most eager for!
This Week's Pick: Days of Blood and Starlight (Daughter of Smoke and Bone #2) by Laini Taylor
Publisher: Little, Brown & Company
Release Date: November 6th, 2012

In this stunning sequel to the highly acclaimed "Daughter of Smoke and Bone," Karou must come to terms with who and what she is, and how far she'll go to avenge her people. Filled with heartbreak and beauty, mysteries and secrets, new characters and old favorites, Days of Blood and Starlight brings the richness, color and intensity of the first book to a brand new canvas.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone was declared a "must read" by Entertainment Weekly, was named a Best Book of the Year by, and The New York Times called it "a breath-catching romantic fantasy."

*Stares lovingly at the cover* Oh...oh, right. I'm supposed to talk about why I want to read this book. Well, have you seen the cover? I'm totally judging this book by the beautiful work of art that is the cover of Days of Blood and Starlight. And the title. This is going to be good.

Since I reviewed Daughter of Smoke and Bone earlier this week, I felt it only appropriate to have Days of Blood and Starlight as my Waiting on Wednesday pick. After the cliffhanger of an ending in the first book, I'm desperate to find out what happens next. I think that, now all the information and back-stories have come to light, this sequel will be much easier to understand. And it'll be a thrill ride like the last one.

With a cover like that, a plot so unique and spellbinding, and characters that dazzle, Days of Blood and Starlight will be a fantastic novel and the perfect sequel. I can't wait to see.
