"And do you really think someone's going to look at you and say, 'Hmm, I think that girl's a plant'?"

Wings by: Aprilynne Pike
Publisher: HarperTeen
Pages: 294

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.

Wings was much better than I expected, to be honest I have been trying to stay away from this book due to all the negative reviews, also its description didn't really appeal to me. BUT now that I have picked it up I am so mad I didn't do it sooner.

Wings isn't really a complex story, to me it felt like a nice short read that was good..but not amazing. It left me happy, but not DYING for the next one (which I already have).  Although this book wasn't amazing, I'm still going to give it a 4 just because It went way past my expectations.

The main things I loved about Wings was the characters, Laurel was so easy to love and was so caring. David, was so understanding and also caring, and Tamani was funny, romantic, snarky....and was well perfect (; Everything about the characters I found myself loving. Another thing I loved was the way fae me it seems a little ridicules still but I still like it? If that makes sense. It was nice reading a fae story that had things work differently then most...I figured wings was gonna lay out the same way all other fae books do but thank goodness it was different (:

I'm not really sure what else to say about this book, I enjoyed it, the romance was cute and fluffy (i love fluffy) and I look forward to picking up the next one, but am in no rush to. So? hmm I'm stumped on what to say.. I hate books that do this to me..OH WELL  all in all I liked Wings and found it much better then what everyone had me expecting it to be.
