Strange the Dreamer By: Laini Taylor Review (Okay, it's basically me fangirling out.)

"Sometimes a moment is so remarkable that it carves out a space in time and spins there, while the world rushes on around it. This was one such."

 I absolutely adore Strange the Dreamer! I am now a HUGE Lazlo fan for life. There are so many great quotes in this book. Even though I don't usually share quotes, I have to share some of my favorites in the review for this one! 

"The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around."

"I think you're a fairy tale. I think you're magical, and brave, and exquisite. And I hope you'll let me be in your story." 

SWOON! I love Lazlo and Sarai so much. Also, the writing is beautiful and flawless. My only two MINOR complaints are that the beginning is a tad slow with the worldbuilding and I guessed early on the big reveal near the end. Even though I was expecting it, I still enjoyed how it all played out. So I can't really even complain about that one. 

"Without his books, his room felt like a body with its hearts cut out."

"And that's how you go on. You lay laughter over the dark parts. The more dark parts, the more you have to laugh. With defiance, with abandon, with hysteria, any way you can." 

That quote right there, yes the one right above this that you just read, is my favorite quote from the entire book. The truth in those words has really resonated with me, especially with how my life is 95% dark parts at the moment. This quote and the ending of the book had me literally choking back tears.

Overall Strange the Dreamer is such a wonderful book and I HIGHLY recommend it. It was even better than I had expected it to be. Is it October yet? I need Muse of Nightmares NOW.
