Wondrous StrangeSeventeen year old actress Kelley Winslow thinks that playing the role of the fairy ueen Titania in a production of Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream could be her lucky break if she can pull it off But when she me Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestI didn't post any status updates for this stealth reviewWhen you're as busy as I am you want to have a book on you at all times At any given moment I have one to two books in my purse even if I'm just going to the hair salon You never know when you might be kept waiting WONDROUS STRANGE was my most recent book purse and I finished it in just two daysI was a bit hesitant about starting this book It came out in 2009 at the start of the post TWILIGHT YA paranormal craze except it's about faeries instead of vampires These trends are cyclical and right now faeries are popular again because you know who wrote you know what and I honestly don't get it because I'd take vampires over faeries any day But then I figured it outFaeries are basically the Kardashians of the paranormal universe They're beautiful and they have nice clothes and they command attention but what do they do Yes we know that they're magical but what do they do apart from being larger than life and slightly supernatural and getting into petty suabbles for no apparent reason We don't know The glamor lies in the glamor or the glamour if you're a faerie and from there it just becomes a cyclical argument consisting of self hype and pixie dust Vampires are like the counter culture version of vampires so like I dunno what that would be in terms of pop culture punk rock Grunge; there's the whole blood thing for start and then there's the fact that they're dead and tied to the occult Faeries are like the sueaky clean version of vampires immortal and powerful without that whole gross and dead and bloody thingAnyway getting back to the book the main character is a girl named Kelley who is involved with the Avalon theater company in New York Due to a fluke she was promoted from understudy to ueen Titania this is called foreshadowing in the play A Midsummer Night's Dream Then one day she meets a weirdo in a park and ends up rescuing a kelpie from a pool in Central Park and that ends up pulling her into the supernatural world of the faerieThe Samhain gate to Faerie lies in Central Park and the time when it opens is drawing close The faeries are pulling their usual games of intrigue but this time it's malicious than usual one of them is planning on starting up the tradition of The Wild Hunt a ruthless band of faerie hunters who kill and raze until enough blood is spilled to satisfy them And this time they'll want difficult preyObviously since this is a YA paranormal book the heroine is not all that she seems has a secret past blah blah blah etc Likewise the hero is not all that he seems is instantly attracted to the heroine must betray his nature to be with her blah blah blah etc By the end of the book they are already saying I love you actually it's I love thee which makes it extra pretentious Because of courseI'm not sure if I would have liked this as much if I was reading it at home surrounded by my infinite array of options but as a captive audience trapped in the middle of a very slow bus with nothing better to do it was okay The writing is actually very gorgeous and I loved the way the author incorporated faerie mythology into the storyline and interwove theater into it Especially since I recently read another YA book about theater called ECHO AFTER ECHO which left me wanting The beginning of this book is much better than the end however In the beginning I was getting total Labyrinth vibes and this is important because Labyrinth is the yardstick by which I judge all books about faeries and goblins The lame insta love and lame love interest cost this book an entire star though I hated Sonny For a semi immortal he was incredibly immature and lame There are boys at middle school dances with maturity than SonnyAll complaints aside I liked it enough to buy the seuel this book and the seuel are 199 ea on Kindle right now so I suppose I can't really complain It kind of reminded me of Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series except with a less swoon worthy hero and fewer intrigueaction scenes35 stars
