I’m blue | Strange the Dreamer (Sample) | A Review

Good afternoon/evening guys, this post is again pretty late today, due to a full-packed work day yesterday and catching up with a bunch of things today – oops!

Today I’m reviewing a sample. I was going to review the full proof from Netgalley but unfortunately, due to tech troubles, I’m only reviewing the sample.

Also, if you haven’t seen, I was lucky enough to be involved with the cover reveal last year so please do check that blog post out too.


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 lose his dream forever.

What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?

The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries—including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo’s dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? And if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?

Welcome to Weep.

Netgalley Review

This is a review for the sample as I was unable to download the full ebook. I highly enjoyed the sampler and am eager to carry on reading the book! Sounds amazing!

As mentioned above, I really did enjoy reading the book and have to admit, was a bit disappointed when I realized I could not read the full proof – boo hoo!

I was really excited about this book last year, when I was first approached about the cover reveal and blurb, and found the blurb captivating.

The sample was pretty much the same, I found it super intriguing and interesting and it made you want to read more, something which I think makes a perfect sample!

The cover is beautiful – both the UK and US editions and if other reviews are anything to go by, the book does not disappoint!

Check out reviews for the full book on Goodreads and Twitter, but I would recommend this for lovers of YA and the fantasy genre. A seemingly good read for the summer!

As always, let me know in the comments below if you’ve read the book and what you thought of it, and, if like me, if you haven’t read it, be sure to add it to your TBR!
