This month I have reviewed on the blog-
- Exile by Rebecca Lim (3.5 of 5 stars)

- The Promise by Apryl Baker (3.5 of 5 stars)
- Birthmarked by Caragh O'Brien (4 of 5 stars)
- Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor (5 of 5 stars)
... no surprises here... Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor!
This book gets my vote because it was so beautifully written with such wonderful characters. It was so unique and just magical, vivid, funny, and tragically romantic. I loved how it very cleverly linked the events of the present to flashbacks of the past, and just generally made me go Wow!
Read my full review of this book here.
Featuring necklaces made of wishes; an underground shop dealing in teeth; magical tattoos; a wishbone on a cord, DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE is a thrilling story about Karou and her secret life as an apprentice to a wishmonger. Karou manages to keep her two lives in balance. On the one hand, she is a seventeen-year-old art student in Prague; on the other, errand-girl to an inhuman creature who deals in wishes and is the closest thing she has to family. Her life is surrounded by mysteries she is desperate to unveil.
I did a pretty poor job of reviewing books this month, and I vow to do better in November, trying to post at least 2 book reviews a week. To read the full review of any of the other books mentioned above please check out the blog archive on the sidebar on the right of the screen.
