What I am reading right now...
This is another book I had heard a lot about so I thought why not. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor is a science fiction teen romance novel. Yep, right up my alley. Not really. I guess I didn't know what I was getting into. But I did like it. So much so that I read the whole thing in about two days and then bought the second novel in the series.
The main character, Karou, is an art student that lives in Prague. As the story progress you find out that she does not have a traditional family. At only seventeen she lives on her own.
Besides her art, Karou runs unlikely errands and has magical abilities. As the book develops you learn more about her errands and magic through her adventures and start to understand that there is a whole other world full of unworldly creatures out there. Of course angels come into the picture and so does a forbidden romance.
Entertaining for sure.
