Well unfortunately, it is Monday again....uugh. But, on a better note, here is my Monday review!!
Today I am reviewing....
By Aprilynne Pike
2 out of 5 stars
Hardcover, 294 pages
Published May 1st 2009 by HarperTeen
Synopsis from Goodreads: "Laurel was mesmerized, staring at the pale things with wide eyes. They were terrifyingly beautiful—too beautiful for words.
Laurel turned to the mirror again, her eyes on the hovering petals that floated beside her head. They looked almost like wings.
In this extraordinary tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever."
I give WINGS 2 stars.
WINGS was written in third person omniscient, which worked well with Aprilynne's writing style.
WINGS is a very well written book, however I felt like WINGS was a very slow moving. I wish that I was given more of an insight into what Laurel was learning about. Laurel was a little dry and naive, which made me not connect with her very well. I was able to connect with David, which was strange since he was not the main character.
I wish that Aprilynne had moved the story a little faster and given me some more memorable events. Truthfully, it was a very forgettable read. But, I did enjoy her creative ideas and take on the fae as a group it gave me a new insight into the fairy (or however you like it spelled) world.
