Bibliophile's Corner

by Aprilynne Pike

Flap Copy description:
Laurel was mesmerized, staring at the pale things with wide eyes. They were terrifyingly beautiful - almost 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.

My thoughts:
In this mythological fantasy Aprilynne Pike tells a lovely story of Laurel, a teen growing up in Northern California; she just happens to discover she is very different from her sophomore classmates - she's a faerie.
The character descriptions, voice, and plot were captivating in Wings - I thoroughly enjoyed it. I highly recommend this book for the teen reader.

(My book reviews for the next two weeks will be the second, and third books in Aprilynne Pike's series.)

  1. That sounds fascinating!! I like fantasy-type stories like that, and having wings sounds like a great thing in a book. :) Faeries are neat!
