☆ Read ↠´ Wings by Aprilynne Pike ☆ A very intriguing take on faeries However, I feel that not a lot happened in the first third of the novel it was mostly Laurel finding out who and what she is Though beautifully written, it seemed of an intro to the next book than a novel in itself Still, it kept me turning pages, the characters were well developed, and the love triangle inspired many aww moments I m anxious to see what will happen in the next book I go to a lot of conventions and comic cons While I m there, I usually pick up a sampling of books from my fellow writers Sometimes I am given free copies I don t think I let that affect my reviews, but I like to be transparent about such things This is one that I bought for the intriguing premise, and the charming author signed it to me.
As always, I wish to avoid spoilers, but as the back cover of the book reveals that Laurel has to deal that a blossom similar to Wings is opening up on her back, I think I ll share that with you right away Laurel is also a young woman with a mysterious past, who is trying to merge into normal high school life in a small town She has always felt she was different, and now she will discover just how different she is And how special.
This could have been a very formulaic tal Laurel Was Mesmerized, Staring At The Pale Things With Wide Eyes They Were Terrifyingly Beautiful Too Beautiful For WordsLaurel Turned To The Mirror Again, Her Eyes On The Hovering Petals That Floated Beside Her Head They Looked Almost Like WingsIn This Extraordinary Tale Of Magic And Intrigue, Romance And Danger, Everything You Thought You Knew About Faeries Will Be Changed Forever Wings was my first ever fairy book and I adored it Aprilynne Pike is so clever and creative She has such a unique twist on fairies and I kept reading passages over and over again because they were just so interesting.
I will admit this up front I ve been doing a Summer reading project analysing the impact and influence the popularity of the Twilight series has had on paranormal YA and since this book had a Meyer quote raving it on the front, I thought I d see what it was like I didn t go in with very high expectation but even then I was just sullen faced and WTF ing by the end of this book.
The story starts of in a basic enough manner with Laurel going to her first day of high school after moving to a new town and a lifetime of home schooling She sits in biology class take your first Twilight drink now And immediately gets all tongue tied and shy over an extremely attractive science nerd called David To give Pike some credit, at least she s setting up her love story early and not kicking her heels with pointless descriptions of everything else going on like Meyer, but give her time and I gave up on YA.
TBR Reduction Challange 5 Kirsten Alright guys, I m throwing in the towel I just can t get over the fact that the girl has a giant flower growing out of her back Ew I mean, eeeew Yeah, and then there are some things that just plain annoy me Dialogues like this one for example It took her a few seconds to find her voice Who are you He paused and studied her with a strange, unflinching look in his eyes Well Laurel prompted You don t know me, do you He asked.
Um, I don t know about you but I think the question Who are you kind of implies that she does not know him headdesk What I have to admit, though, is that this book is quite funny Unintentionally so, but still funny.
Statements like Don t worry, I ll keep my distance from your blossom had me in tears because I was laughing so hard For on that, check out Arlene s awesome review I ve rea Wings was definitely a unique take on fairy mythology And I finally get the significance of the cover now, which I have to say fits the novel perfectly I m a huge fan of the Faery Fairy Fae was it is really genre, or rather sub genre I wasn t surprised that I really liked this novel Sensational plot line, really different than anything I ve read The first part of the novel moved a little slow for me But once I became fully engrossed in the world that Pike created, I couldn t get through the pages fast enough The writing was outstanding, it flowed really well It s one of those instances where you don t realize your reading it s so easy to read Maybe that s just something that happens to me personally, but I love when it does The characters were also really well depicted Although we don t know much about Laurel s history, I still felt like I real

Don t worry I ll keep my distance from your blossom I know whose petals I m allowed to get into and whose I m not he inhaled deeply Mmmmm As fabulous as you smell, your petals are off limits to me Whoaaaaaaaaa Get your mind out of the gutter This is a YA book about fairie flowers for crying out loud Yes, you heard me right fairies that are PLANTS Yes PLANTS Oh fine, I ll admit, I had trouble grasping the concept as well It was all really face palm worthy, and I was actually perplexed to find Stephenie Meyer endorsed this book until I found out that the author Aprilynne Pike is a friend of hers, so that answers that I really struggled with this book if you couldn t te Kate limps in the kitchen Roommate looks up Roommate What happened to you Kate Fell through too many plotholes.
You know, at least in one aspect, the caption doesn t lie You do get a different viewpoint on faeries fairies As for the magic, intrigue, romance and danger, I didn t get much on that, and the extraordinary bit kind of slipped me as well.
Good things first the novel is short and reads easy You re not given too much time to groan and despair over the things you hate I admit, I didn t try to delve way too deep into the book, mostly because I ve already read five other books in this genre and I really, really don t need to antagonize over it Or agonize Oh, waitSo Laurel is your ordinary fifteen year old girl whose hippy parents move into a new town oops, there goes the first drink She has been previously homeschooled, but now has to attend public school and mee
