Waiting on Wednesday: Days of Blood and Starlight

This little gem is hosted over at Breaking the Spine.

One book that I am DYING to get my hands on is:

Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor
(This is the sequel to Daughter of Smoke & Bone)

Days of Blood and Starlight (Daughter of Smoke and Bone, #2)(Quick GoodReads Overview)
In this stunning sequel to the highly acclaimed Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Karou must come to terms with who and what she is, and how far she'll go to avenge her people. Filled with heartbreak and beauty, mysteries and secrets, new characters and old favorites, Days of Blood and Starlight brings the richness, color and intensity of the first book to a brand new canvas.

The Why: Let's start with the cover. GORGEOUS.  Now.  Daughter of Smoke and Bone was one of my favorite reads this year. I FELL IN LOVE. Some of the best writing I've ever come across. Beautiful, lyrical, gut-wrenching, amazing. The world, the characters..oh my gosh. The first book ripped my heart right out of my chest.  And I CAN'T WAIT to see what this book does.  I need more of this world. I need more of these characters. I. NEED. MORE. Luckily I don't have TOOO long to wait.
