Laini Taylor

She tastes like nectar and salt. Nectar and salt and apples. Pollen and stars and hinges. She tastes like fairy tales. Swan maiden at midnight. Cream on the tip of a fox’s tongue. She tastes like hope. — Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke and Bone. (Little, Brown and Company; 1st edition September 27, 2011)
