The Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy {Book gush}


OHMYGOSHY’ALL!!! Y’aaaallll! You guys!! HOLY. SHEET. BALLS!!!!

There’s not much that I can say that will do this series justice. Laini Taylor has created a world and characters that held me captive from start to finish. To me, she is a godstar {little inside trilogy joke… you’ll get it once you read it. See what I did there? I’ve peaked your interested, right? I thought so}. This series was introduced to me by a Goodreads friend who gushed so much about the first book, I thought she would for sure gush to death. Okay, maybe not to death but she loved it. So, I joined in the fun and little did I know that I would be completely and utterly drawn in.

This series was a breath of fresh air for me. It wasn’t a YA fantasy novel laden with love triangles and weak female main characters who suffer from damsel-in-distress syndrome. It wasn’t bogged down with weird YA slang and typical scenarios. Laini Taylor offers up something completely unexpected and SO FREAKING ENTERTAINING!! I felt all the feels!!! I laughed A LOT {especially when it came to Karou (our MC) and her best friend, Zuzana. HILARIOUS banter}, I cried, I stressed a bunch and said “Whaaaaaaa..?!” at the parts that were completely mind blowing.

It’s safe to say that these books gets ALL THE STARS!!. I loved them, and this series has become one of my all time favorites. I don’t want to say much more as I’m afraid I’ll give something away. So I’ve attached links to each book’s Goodreads summary. That way, if something is ruined, it wont reeeeaaallly be my fault. It’ll be Goodreads fault. Right? Right.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone

Days of Blood and Starlight

Dreams of Gods and Monsters

So, if you’re in search of a book series that will make you laugh, will allow you to be swept up in fantasy, take you on a mega adventure that’s totall amazeballs, and will remind you to always have hope, then this is for you!! Trust me. Read these. You’re welcome.

  1. I read the first two and I loved them. But I haven’t picked up the third one yet! I can’t wait! I hope it works out ok. πŸ™‚

  2. I read the first one and something about it just didn’t really work for me. I felt that Taylor was trying *too* hard to make her protagonist stand out from the crowd and be different, and by the time I got to the whole “past lives” thing, I had rolled my eyes enough to make them fall out of their sockets.
    Felt quite sad when I finished the first book because everybody loves it so much, a bit like the Shatter Me series, and I just…couldn’t get into it

    • Hahahaha I have rolled my eyes like that before. It kinda hurts!! I think there are some series where either everyone loved it or everyone disliked it. I found myself in your shoes in regards to the Lunar Chronicles.

  3. I just finished the third books in this series. I absolutely adore them. They’re by far my favourite series (and beating Harry Potter is kind of a big deal). Laini Taylor’s writing is just… indescribable. She’s so good at everything – descriptions, plot twists, character development. I’m finding it so hard to write a review because it’s just perfection.

    • You’re right…Taylor is a master storyteller. I loved what you said in your review {which I’ll totally comment on} about how she leaves the ending open for possibilities. And it’s funny because the ending wasn’t a cliffhanger…it just ended with a heart full of hope. And yes, beating HP is a huge deal but this story was just GAHHHHH. AMAHZING. On a whole different level!!!!!!

      Ps. Thank you for the follow πŸ™‚

      • Yes! You said it perfectly. A heart full of hope. Hope is such a universal theme (I didn’t get this deep in high school english) and she uses it EVERYWHERE in the book. It’s even Karou’s NAME and to end it with that much hope is just… WOW. I really want to spend a whole week talking about this series with Laini Taylor. I don’t understand how she created this amazing thing just out of her mind!
