Ashley’s Corner- TBT Extraordinary Titles

Well hello everybody!! Are you ready for this Tuesday’s post?? As the title states, we are exploring extraordinary titles. To be fair (for all those LetterKenny fans out there) I only considered the ones I own.

And there was only one series that struck me hard. Laini Taylor’s, Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Now, I won’t give too much detail about this book since I would love to review it sometime when I have the chance to reread it. But it should be known that this is by far one of the more unique, interesting, page turning, beyond anything I’ve read, books. It is unlike any book that my eyes have gazed as. Now, to the brief description.

Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.

In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low.

And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.

Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages - not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she's about to find out.

When one of the strangers - beautiful, haunted Akiva - fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?
