It’s been a difficult month in terms of getting anything actually done, to the point where I’ve had to step back from some things and use my time to just breathe, regroup and try to focus on the next thing, and hope to return to the unfinished things when the brain weasels will allow it. But if there’s going to be time to breathe, it’s probably good that it was now. October is a day away, and I’ve got things …
Well. That escalated quickly. SPOILERS WILL FOLLOW FOR CHAPTERS 32 THROUGH 42. In this part of the book, Eliza finds out where The Suits were taking her, and is left with an existential revelation (or several).

And now we return to our regularly scheduled flailing programme. SPOILERS WILL FOLLOW FOR CHAPTERS 21 THROUGH 32. In this part of the book, a trap is sprung and the game is changed. But what will it all mean? Let’s discuss Dreams of Gods and Monsters.
Or, Lisa Flails About Her Messed Up Darlings. SPOILERS WILL FOLLOW FOR CHAPTERS 11 THROUGH 20. In this part of the book, the Misbegotten and the chimaera rebel forces come together, as Karou and Akiva try to forge a semblance of peace between them. It … only goes a little bit wrong? Relatively speaking? All that and more! Let’s discuss Dreams of Gods and Monsters. CONTENT NOTE: Discussion of asexual coding/representation.
So the time has finally come for me to finish Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, and as before I’ll be breaking this book down into segments and posting a weekly review/discussion post/wordflail about the chapters I read. In these opening chapters, the angels arrive on Earth and … everything’s going to hell. IRONICALLY. Oh, I’ve missed my messed up darlings. Let’s discuss Dreams of Gods & Monsters. Spoilers follow for chapters 1 through 10.
So I blinked and missed February. Huh. Not a lot got written about this month (thanks, Anxiety), but I’m telling myself that this is OK. My disposition is a bit sunnier now, and plans are being made! Let’s take a quick look at what February did.
In the second part of Days of Blood and Starlight, Karou and Akiva are struggling with friendships while navigating enemy territory – and, slowly but hopefully surely, coming closer back together. Physically, anyway… Spoilers follow for chapters 28-47.
In the first quarter of Days of Blood and Starlight, absolutely nothing is all right. Including me. Major spoilers follow for chapters 1-27 (and for Daughter of Smoke and Bone).
So I survived December’s insane workload and January’s relentless efforts to trap me in depression mode. February is here, I am reading ALL THE THINGS, and cold weather or no cold weather, things are looking up. Now let’s look back a little bit, shall we?
In the final part of Daughter of Smoke and Bone, I am screaming. Spoiler alert.
