For those that love this world and cannot wait for the final installment - release date April - join us for a magical Night of Cake & Puppets
on the streets of Prague, with Zuzana and Mik.

What is a Buddy Read?

This is an "Informal Buddy Read"
An “Informal Buddy Read” doesn’t have a discussion leader and participants are asked to consider some generic questions when making comments about the book. An example is here.


Book Synopsis:
In Night of Cake & Puppets, Taylor brings to life a night only hinted at in the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy—the magical first date of fan-favorites Zuzana and Mik. Told in alternating perspectives, it’s the perfect love story for fans of the series and new readers alike. Petite though she may be, Zuzana is not known for timidity. Her best friend, Karou, calls her “rabid fairy,” her “voodoo eyes” are said to freeze blood, and even her older brother fears her wrath. But when it comes to the simple matter of talking to Mik, or “Violin Boy,” her courage deserts her. Now, enough is enough. Zuzana is determined to meet him, and she has a fistful of magic and a plan. It’s a wonderfully elaborate treasure hunt of a plan that will take Mik all over Prague on a cold winter’s night before finally leading him to the treasure: herself! Violin Boy’s not going to know what hit him

I was reading this during new year's eve, so when midnight chimed in I was laughing my eyes out with Zuzana and Karou's text exchange.

I finally finished it. I know it is small, but took me a while to squeeze in the reading on my phone or laptop!

I thought it was a super cute story, but I really liked her use of language too. Quotes like:

"I want to do mysterious and improbable things alongside a fierce and beautiful girl who looks like a doll brought to life by a sorcerer."

"holy hell the chocolate is so intense and pure it should be named an element and given a spot on the periodic table. It would be Ch, which isn’t even taken"


And so many others - I just couldn't stop to highlight them all! I think she could certainly do a spin-off series with Zuze and Mik
