Reviews Muse of Nightmares (Strange the Dreamer, #2)

  • Chaima ✨ شيماء
    This book holds more wonder and beauty than most places in the world. It’s as if the universe decided that it was tired of being so immense, so it compressed all of its complexity and splendor into a smaller form just so it could make everyone around it feel like they were a part of the stars.This whole experience already feels so far away—like something out of a dream—and the whole of my being is wrapped around so much fondness and aching ...

    ARC provided by Hachette in exchange for an honest review.1.) Strange the Dreamer ★★★★★ “I would have chosen you, if they had let me choose.” Strange the Dreamer was my favorite book of 2017, and Muse of Nightmares is probably going to be my favorite book of 2018. These two books just bring so much love into my heart, and so much hope into my soul. I have no word combinations to ever begin to describe how much this book meant to m...

    Good little girls don’t kill. They die.And Minya was not a good little girl. I know a lot of us were expecting Muse of Nightmares to be good, but I have to say, this book actually exceeded my expectations. I have a lump in my throat and I can't stop thinking about it. I usually spend time making detailed notes while reading a book but, at one point, I opened Notes on my computer just to type "oh fucking god, this is so good".No spoilers, of cou...

    11-1-18 Look what came today! I already showed Strange the Dreamer but I got Muse of Nightmares too through Illumicrate with Silver Sprayed Edges to go with the front of the book. A dream journal, beautiful art work and a letter from the author and signed editions. Just keep them coming! ♥Do y'all like my funko pop I made of Sarai? I would liked to have made a better one but it's okay =)Listened to the audible first thing. I can't even right no...

    Wow. I am in awe of Laini Taylor's ability to craft such a magical world, beautiful characters and fascinating plots. I loved every minute of this journey, and now that I've finished, I'm just so impressed by how the author tied up this series. WOW indeed.Now to reread this series again!

    Re-read with Laura, Lynn, and Alison ... Because we can't only read the first one! AHHHHHHHH! :D “There comes a certain point with a hope or a dream, when you either give it up or give up everything else. And if you choose the dream, if you keep on going, then you can never quit, because it's all you are.”PERFECTION. COMPLETE AND UTTER PERFECTION.This is what I looked like on release day. In fact, I didn’t even wait for the school day to en...

    Once upon a time there was a silence that dreamed of becoming a song, and then I found you, and now everything is music. This is one of the most beautifully written books I have ever read. I am always mesmerized by how much emotion a single word can carry and Laini Taylor has honed that skill to perfection. Her writing is truly divine. Every time I read one of her books I never fail to notice that she uses words so perfectly that not a single phr...

    I'm pretty sure Laini Taylor books just exist to capture and devour your entire SOUL AND IMAGINATION. I just went on such a wild adventure omg, I feel acTUALLY DRAINED. Like this duology has totally filled my creative well. I am heart eyes and my heart so so full and !!!! my emotions are just !!! which is exactly how a professionally reviewer would summarise a book. !!!!So this takes off basically seconds after Strange The Dreamer ends. Who needs...

    This is how I woke up feeling this morning. I thought I could not review Strange the Dreamer properly because of how much I loved that book and though I did kinda manage to review it, I’m not even going to try with this one. My mind is exhausted. Laini Taylor had a field day with it and I am wiped. The reading experience I had with these books could be summed up in two words: healing and spiritual.I can’t wait to revisit this world and all it...

    Wishes don't just come true. They're only the target you paint around what you want. You still have to hit the bulls-eye yourself.i’m telling you up-front that i’m not going to write a “proper” review for this one. talking about the plot would sound like gibberish to someone who hasn’t read Strange the Dreamer, and if you are a person who has read Strange the Dreamer and aren’t planning to read this one, you should see a doctor about...

    ‘once upon a time there was a silence that dreamed of becoming a song, and then i found you, and now everything is music.’ i am so enchanted with this story, which lives and breathes magic. ‘muse of nightmares’ is the inspiration for dreams and the home of beauty. it is the sequel i have been desperately waiting for. my love for ‘strange the dreamer’ came entirely from lazlo. he was such a delight. a reader, a dreamer, a man after my ...

    Click here to watch a video review of this book on my channel, From Beginning to Bookend. Once upon a time, there was a silence that dreamed of becoming a song, and then I found you, and now everything is music.* An aching, sumptuous, harrowing book. Muse of Nightmares is an exquisite dance of monsters and goddesses, mystery and romance, witchlight and wonder. More thoughts to come in my June Wrap Up. :D-*Note: Quote taken from an advanced readi...

    4.5⭐There’re two things I wish could have been rewritten. Aside from that, Laini Taylor, I’m in awe. 4.5⭐️There’re two things I wish could have been rewritten. Aside from that, Laini Taylor, I’m in awe.
  • Tatiana
    A glorious fantasy, full of pain, heartbreak, redemption and love. Possibly slightly undermined by a too neat ending? I haven't quite decided yet.This is how you write a sequel - you introduce a set of new intriguing characters with an expansive history of their own, and link their journey with the story of Weep, and make the whole thing 10 times fuller and more brutal.Frankly, I hadn't been super excited to go back to the conflict at the end of ...

  • Mary ~Ravager of Tomes~
    Actual Rating: 3.5 StarsI feel so weird rounding this book to a 3 stars, but compared to how much I adored the first one I think I would feel even weirder having it displayed as a 4. It was good, and I’m glad I read it. But it didn’t have the same magic for me that the first one had, sadly. 💔

    Laini Taylor has developed into one of my favourite authors over the years so I always go into her books with massively high expectations. The good news is that if anything Muse of Nightmares exceeded my super high expectations and was everything I was wishing it would be and then a bit more! This series is YA fantasy romance done to perfection! The story is fantastic and packed full of likeable and interesting characters and imaginative magic al...

    I've been waiting months for this sequel, and at some point, my son and I both synced October 2, 2018, on our calendars, as "D day". I. Kid. You. Not.So, it was no surprise to ANYONE ( except for hubby who actually thought we could have a meaningful conversation today *snorts*) that I've been glued to this mesmerizing and brilliantly crafted book, which appears to be even more perfect than its predecessor. Mind effing blown!
  • Phrynne
    Isn't it good when the sequel is every bit as good as the first book. Strange the Dreamer was perfect and Muse of Nightmares does not let it down.Probably the most amazing part is the world Laini Taylor has created which just gets better and better as this book progresses. The town they call Weep whose real name has been erased from memory, the citadel made in the form of a Seraph, mesarthium, the metal which Lazlo can form into anything and the ...

    4.5****REREAD September 2019Once upon a time, a sister made a vow she didn’t know how to break, and it broke her instead.Once upon a time, a girl did the impossible, but she did it just a little too late.I LOVE this duology!! Laini Taylor’s writing is so gorgeous. I am still devastated over Kora and Nova’s story. I loved getting to know some of the characters from the first book even better- especially Suheyla, Eril-Fane and Azareen. This d...

    There was a word from a myth: sathaz . It was the desire to possess that which can never be yours. It meant senseless, hopeless yearning, the way a gutter child might dream of being king, and it came from the tale of the man who loved the moon.I am in love with this series. I am just in love with this series.This second book was just as good as the first, it had the same magical and dreamy atmosphere but at the same time it is so complex and beau...
