What are you reading?

It's Wednesday! Tell me all about what you're reading!
As for me, I'm reading Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke and Bone.
From Goodreads.com:
Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky. 
In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low. 
And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war. 
Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages—not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she's about to find out. 
When one of the strangers—beautiful, haunted Akiva—fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?

I am about two-thirds of the way through and I absolutely love it. I am apparently on an angel kick. Laini has created an awesome world and I don't want to leave. I'm rationing out the chapters to make it last a little while longer. I can't wait for the next one!
