Book Review: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

This review is as spoiler-free as I can make it. However, as it is impossible to discuss this story without giving away the progression of the first sections of the story, I highly recommend simply picking up the book and starting to read. Summary Lazlo is a nobody—an orphan and librarian who has only one… Continue reading Book Review: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
