Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly series hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming book releases we can’t wait to get our hands on.
This week’s Waiting on Wednesday pick is the first book in Laini Taylor’s upcoming duology Strange the Dreamer.
So what’s it about? A city named Weep, gods, monsters, moths, a librarian and definitely more of the beautiful prose we’ve come to expect from Laini Taylor.
Can’t wait to read it? Too bad, Strange the Dreamer isn’t set to appear in stores until September 27, 2016.
So here’s hoping the date gets pushed forward or a Barnes and Noble near you releases it early by mistake!
Keep reading for a sort-of book synopsis, or head to Entertainment Weekly for a sneak peek.
