Monday Mini – Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor @lainitaylor
Strange the Dreamer - Laini Taylor

I was so excited when I found I had won a hard copy of Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor.


I love the gorgeous cover. How about you?


Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer, #1)

Goodreads  /  Amazon




I was awed and amazed with the excellent world building and the romance that crosses all barriers. The characters are richly developed and complex, each one vital to the story in their own way. I loved everything about this unputdownable fantasy, so I will warn you to start Strange The Dreamer on the weekend, lock all the doors, pull the curtains, and put up the DO NOT DISTURB sign. My only complaint…There is another book and you will need to read it to get all the answers.


“Life won’t just happen to you, boy,” he said. “You have to happen to it.”


I was super excited that I won a copy of Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor.

Animated Animals. Pictures, Images and Photos 5 Stars





The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around—and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he’s been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance or lose his dream forever.


What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world?


What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?


laini. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? And if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?

Welcome to Weep.

Strange the Dreamer: DNF at 5 percent
Strange the Dreamer - Laini Taylor

Sorry, not sorry, I just am not going to force myself to read something I am not enjoying.

The purple prose and info dump that I tried to wade through turned me completely off. I can't say much more than that since I didn't waste my time trying to struggle through this read. 


I would also say that the flow was just a slog. I did try to skim a couple of chapters and just gave up.

Reading progress update: I've read 3%.
Strange the Dreamer - Laini Taylor

I smell a DNF coming.


"He roared the city’s name. Like thunder, like an avalanche, like the war cry of the seraphim who had come on wings of fire and cleansed the world of demons."

I Thought it Would Never End
Strange the Dreamer - Laini Taylor

3 stars (rounded up)-story
The story was fascinating, beautifully written, visual, flowing as I have come to love of
Ms. Taylor's style and it was too long and over written. I wanted to love it, wanted to have that can't wait for more feel, instead I was asking, "when will this end". It was slow for me, dragging at times with inner dialog, extreme detailing of everything, that my mind would drift away to mundane thoughts instead of being in the story. Till the last hour of the book, that woke me up and grabbed my attention fully and then CLIFFHANGER ! I listened to over 18 hours struggled to stay with the story to finally have something happen and was left hanging with "to be continued" ARGUH ! Seriously ? That really pissed me off. For me the book was twice as long as it needed to be. There was a part where she went into such extreme details about kissing, omg how many pages did that carry on for in print ? The first 3/4 of the book was so slow and over written for this reader.
Will I read the next book ? Right now I have no interest. I'm so tired of the story, the endless self discoveries, and awakening feeling I really don't care. I am shocked I feel this way I adored her last series.
