TBR Thursday

Kimberly @ Kimberlyfaye Reads started a new weekly feature that I'm excited to join in! This feature is to showcase what's on your to be read shelf (or eReader, or Audible library) and see what others think of it. Have you read it? Should I read it or put it back on the shelf? It's a way to dust off the books on your self and decide if they're worth reading!

The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around—and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he’s been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance or lose his dream forever.

What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?

The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries—including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo’s dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? And if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?

Welcome to Weep.

I've never read anything by this author, though she's been on my TBR for a good year or so. This cover is just calling my name!


  1. I feel like this book has gotten a lot of love. This cover and the UK one are both stunning!

  2. My copy is on hold for me at the library. I need to go pick it up. Laini Taylor is one of my favorites. I adored Daughter of Smoke and Bone.

  3. I need this book! I loved her Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy.

  4. This book was amazing! Ah but since you're a Laini Taylor newbie, fair warning that she is a purple-proser. Yep. It took me a bit to get into her Daughter of Smoke and Bone.
