Weekend Aesthetic: Strange the Dreamer

Yay today I have something brand new to share with you: A Weekend Aesthetic!

The wonderful Jordan @ The Heart of a Book Blogger has been doing Weekend Aesthetics for some time now, and I have loved every single one of her posts. I had a go at doing an aesthetic board for a book when I reviewed State of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury, and I fell in love with doing them!

Jordan said that she wouldn’t mind if I started doing Weekend Aesthetics as well, so here we are ☺️ See Jordan’s this week’s gorgeous Weekend Aesthetic here!

I’m hoping to do Weekend Aesthetics bi-weekly, and every aesthetic board will feature a book I’m currently reading or a book I have read previously. This week I made an aesthetic board of Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor.


The Aesthetic



Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

29748925If I absolutely have to report one favourite book, it is Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor. It transports me to another world, and it has changed the way I see things in real life too. I even got a tattoo of a moth inspired by Strange the Dreamer.

Currently I’m rereading Strange because the sequel, Muse of Nightmare was just released this Tuesday. I have a beautiful copy of it already which I actually preordered in February. But I’m insistent on rereading Strange first! And oh my gosh I’m loving it so so so much.

I think Strange the Dreamer is one of those books that should be dived into knowing nothing about it beforehand. But if you would like to have something to go on, here’s a little snippet of the synopsis from Goodreads:

The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around – and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he’s been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance or to lose his dream forever.


What do you think about my aesthetic? Would your aesthetic of Strange the Dreamer be very very different?

That’s the fun in these things because everyone would make a different board!

Have you read Strange the Dreamer? What about Muse of Nightmares? Are you hoping to read them soon?? I hope so!

Thank you so much for reading!

  1. Wow, that’s fangirling on a whole ‘nother level girlllll! A tattoo? I saw your copy of Muse of Nightmares, such a big book! I read an excerpt of the 1st book and idk how she does it but her prose is hauntingly lyrical😱

    • Aw thank you 😍 😘 Making these is so much fun! And I really hope you get to Strange the Dreamer soon!!! Ah I’m pretty jealous that you get to read it for the first time 😂 All of Laini Taylor’s books are gorgeously whimsical, I have also read her Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy and it was really good too!
