Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, 418 pages, read by Leslie, on 05/31/2013

Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone, #1)

Seventeen-year-old Karou, a lovely, enigmatic art student in a Prague boarding school, carries a sketchbook of hideous, frightening monsters–the chimaerae who form the only family she has ever known.

This was a type of tale I had not seen before, the stories of chimaerae and angels.  It’s a love story, is she human or monster and how does she feel about the truth when she finds it?  I may or may not want to read any follow-up books, but I did enjoy this one.
