daughterofsmokeandbonetrilogy:

This is the first line you’ll read in Daughter of Smoke & Boneand you won’t stop until you get to the last.

From National Book Award Finalist Laini Taylor comes the New York Times bestselling trilogy about forbidden love, an ancient and epic battle, and hope for a world remade. 

Entertainment Weekly says it’s “thrillingly fresh and new,” and Wired calls it “the next Next Big Thing”, but start reading and see for yourself: Amazon | B&N | Indiebound

I have to reblog this for “Daughter of Smoke and Bone” solidarity. One of my FAV teen series. ~Melissa, the Teen Librarian

Try this at home.

Just be sure you have permission before you draw all over a book! Seriously, though, this is lovely.
