Review of Wings (a so so beginning) by Aprilynne Pike 


Series: Wings #1

Format/page count: paperback/294

Publisher/year: HarperTeen/2011

Summary: Laurel thought just moving to a new town and,going to school would be the hard part. However she will quickly learn that’s the least of her problems. 

My thoughts: 

I enjoyed this book and am going to be continuing the series. However this book was just a meh read. As the first book has the whole weird stuff began to happen to Laurel and come to find out she’s a faerie and now trying to learn all she can about it. (Without of course telling her parents but tell her new best friend).Which was cool that Pike put a biology spin on how Laurel and David found out more about what Laurel could do. If you ever watched the Thirteenth Year an old Disney movie from my childhood. Laurels story pretty much can be summed up the same way except for a merman it’s faerie. Plus there is a love triangle and more danger. 
The romance was okay I can’t help but feel bad for Tamani the Spring faire who helps give Laurel the information about her heritage. especially when we find out how long he’s been waiting for Laurel. Plus David is such a sweetheart who has been raised by his mother and learn how to be a respectful young man. Any girl would love to take home.And the thing about this love triangle is I like both guy interest. Kinda like in the infernal devices between Will and Jem. I liked both of them and that’s the starting problem I have with this book. Which may change as there are 3 more books in the series. 
Another thing it dragged a little and it didn’t really pick up until Laurels dad got sick. After that it got more interesting to read. Being the first book it’s a introduction piece and the rest of the books will be more action base. Or a girl can dream right. 
Finally Rating: 3/5 

So if you’ve read this book and seen thirteen years(If you have seen the movie major points).Tell me if am not the only one who see’s some of the parallels. 

I Actual Read More Than One Book in a Week. (I think I deserve candy lol)


It’s not a grand number but hey three books in one week is impressive for me. So here are the books I’ve read.

Wings by Aprilynne Pike (wings,1)

 3/5..Just a meh read for me, however am going to keep reading the series.

Doon by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon (doon,1)  5/5..Loved this story so much can’t wait for the next books.

Visions in Death by J.D. Robb (in death, 19) 

 5/5..One of my favorites for a lot of things seemed to happen.

Currently Reading/listening:  

 
Watching Eve try and deal with a nine year old who is her eye witness to her family and best friend. 
How was everyone else week went? because all I’ve done is work, read, earring, and sleeping. 

October BookHaul from different sources


Thirft store buys (because I needed more books even if there cheap)
Bookoutlet order (because there was a deal ugh. But hey now I got all of Morgan Matson books.)

  Amazon Marketplace (where I finally collected all the books out right now)  

I went to B&N and got these beauties   
Last and not least kindle buys (which doesn’t help that I can get these cheap and I don’t pay attention.)

  
  

So I didn’t realize how much I brought until I began this list. Although I want to just say YOLO I am running out of space on my bookshelf. However am so addicted to buying books that it doesn’t even matter. 

Anyone else have this problem? Please let me know.
