Strange the Dreamer – A Review in Quotes

I read this book – that’s beautiful inside and out – a couple days ago and it has skyrocketed to the top of my favorites list. I made this review in the hopes that everyone of you will get to read and love it too. It’s for the strange and for the dreamers, and for everyone in between.

Strange the Dreamer

by Laini Taylor

 

-the stories poured from him, and Lazlo listened. He listened the way a cactus drinks rain.

 

Inside a dream.

Within a lost city.

In the shadow of anangel.

At the brink of calamity.

The dream chooses the dreamer, and not the other way around

The sky was huge and there was freedom in it. The stars called to her like signal beacons burning on a vast black seas as she flung herself a hundredfold into the dizzy air.

Sarai had an arsenal of terrors. She was an arsenal of terrors.

“The library knows its own mind. When it steals a boy, we let it keep him.”Here, captured between covers, was the history of

human imagination, and nothing had ever been

more beautiful, or fearsome, or bizarre.

 

 

 

“The moon on a bracelet and the sun in a jar. We really wreak havoc on the heavens don’t we?”

What power can annihilate a name?

 

She screamed everything, and felt as though her very being broke apart in the soft scatter of wings.

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.

Moths and clouds

and flowers

and fire

and ghosts.

 

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.

WHY NOT DREAM?
