They make Channel 5 documentaries about body building teens and not to be complimentary which get their own tacked on scene which is completely unnecessary to the story I can’t call it a plot because nothing resembling any sort of conflict or anything interesting happens until about 280 pages in So yeah grab a pillow and some caramel shortbread 4 chapters in something finally happens Well if you can call a zit a plot device Typically for teen girls Laurel worries about the blemish my back looked like the Himalaya mountain range for most of my teenage years but after her earlier shallow comments reading her worries about this rapidly growing bump turning into “something ugly” whilst being uietly judgemental about girls with similar situations doesn’t exactly warm me to the leading ‘heroine’ Eventually the bump turns out not to be cancerous or God forbid a zit and soon it sprouts into a giant flower I will relent a little here and say this was a pretty interesting take on the fairy mythos At least it was enough to recapture my interest after the 5 chapters of non plot and characters that give Julian Sands hope in the personality and charisma department It’s serviceable stuff but it’s not exactly a page turner unless you mean in the sense that you want to turn the pages just to get on with something else important Does she tel

Traordinary tale of magic and intrigue romance and danger everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever Wings was definitely a uniue 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 FaeryFairyFae 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 really knew her as a character and even though Tamani’s presence in the novel is few and far between he is probably my favorite character which says a lot for Pike’s character development And then of course one of my personal favorite elements in any story the love triangle I can’t wait to see of that in the future novels as far as I’m aware I believe there are to be three consisting of a four book series I could be wrong Overall a exciting and beautifully written novel

Wings Author Aprilynne PiLaurel was mesmerized staring at the pale things with wide eyes They were terrifyingly beautiful too beautiful for wordsLaurel Spoiler Alert Spoiler Alert This book contains content that can cause a reader to inflict bodily harm to oneself Proceed with caution Oh and my review might contain a spoiler or two you've been warned 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 meWhoaaaaaaaaa 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 tell by now and there are so many head desk issues with the writing and concept that I actually called it uits and couldn't finish it This book reeks of Mary Sues and Gary Stus You have the main character Laurel that's ohhh soooo beautiful with amazing eyes luminous blond hair a thin willowy body with translucent white skin Oh And she's vegan and smells good and she's got this great guy that's too good to be true tripping over her and falling in lurves with her despite the fact that she blossoms a flower on her back and he doesn't find that the least bit weird David she's a PLANT Yes A PLANT shakes headPutting the Mary Sue and PLANT issue aside the writing is extremely simplistic and the storyline is developed in a way that makes it hard to suspend one's reality and appreciate the story for what it's worth There were so many insignificant incidences and events that I kept losing interest and I never really came to care for Laurel or David Oh and did I mention she's a PLANT? Overall I'd say that the concept had potential but noooo she's a PLANT It takes a talented author to create a fantastical realm and launch an idea that reuires imaginary suspension and unfortunately IMHO Aprilynne Pike didn't deliver so lucky for Pike that she has friends in high places to get her book off the groundFinal point err uestion rather Why is this book called Wings if it's really a PLANT and Laurel can't fly with the flower that blossoms on her back? Didn't uite get that but I am not going to continue to read this series to find out No thankswalks away mumbling 'she's a PLANT??? WT??' ^^
