On my bookshelf
Anywho, I read Daughter of Smoke and Bone on the recommendation of a friend who has fantastic taste in books. She proved herself once again because this book was fantastic. The first half had me spellbound; the storyline was so different and the main character I just loved. The second half of the book completely surprised me in the direction it went, but in a good way.
It's interesting to me that I am getting into so much YA fantasy lately. Growing up I was not a fantasy genre fan at all; I didn't like the suspension of reality. But what I am finding is that there is so much reality even in a fantasy setting, that sometimes these stories have more 'realness' to them than just ordinary fiction. Does that make sense? If you like YA fantasy, then you need to read this, and then buy the sequel when it comes out and let me borrow it, K? :)
