“STRANGE THE DREAMER is definitely one of my favorite reads of this year. Next time, I won’t be making the same mistake and waiting to read Laini Taylor again.”
~ Under the Covers

Lesson learned: Don’t ever sleep on Laini Taylor. When the announcement was made about this new series, I was so excited about it. But then somewhere down the line, there was a delay and the release date was changed. For some reason, I forgot to mark down this change and I forgot about it. It wasn’t until recently that I remembered about this book and read it. And man, I severely regret not reading this book as soon as it was released.

Taylor is an incredible writer. I love the way she is able to brought so much depth and detail to her writing. Although this is a Young Adult book, the vocabulary is very advanced so this book would be great for all ages. The tone follows the same style. It’s very advanced and dark, which is something that I look for in my Young Adult reads. You can definitely expect quality writing and worldbuilding in Taylor’s books. So the fact that it may have taken longer to get this book doesn’t bother me at all. She does it right and she does it well.

In the last YA novel I reviewed, a reader said that she didn’t enjoy books that were too depressing. While this book does have some dark tones to it, I do think it’s a fascinating read. The writing has a lyrical – almost musical- quality to it that I think a lot of readers would enjoy. This book is sure to take you on a ride and makes for the perfect escape.

STRANGE THE DREAMER is definitely one of my favorite reads of this year. Next time, I won’t be making the same mistake and waiting to read Laini Taylor again.

About Laini Taylor

Hi there! I'm a writer of fantasy books for young people, but my books can be enjoyed by adults as well. My 'Dreamdark' books, Blackbringer (2007) and Silksinger (2009) are about faeries -- not dainty little flowery things, but warrior-faeries who battle devils. My first young adult book, Lips Touch, is a finalist for the 2009 National Book Award! It's creepy, sensual supernatural romance. . . about kissing. I am also an artist with a licensed gift product line called "Laini's Ladies."

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
