The moon never fails to mesmerise me. The shimmering beauty at night borders so much on mysticism, I can’t look away. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor enamoured me in the same manner. The words portray such beauty and the setting is so magical, I still dream about it sometimes.
Since we’re already drawing parallels, the shade of blue sky that I captured in that photograph is precisely the blue that I imagine Karou’s hair to be. That aside, a lot of what happens in Daughter of Smoke and Bone happens at night when the world slumbers. Even when it was day, I couldn’t help but imagine atmospheric darkness engulfing Prague and Morocco. I think that is especially why I associate the moon with this book.
What does the moon make you think of?
