Wondrous Strange – Wikipedia

The key to my heart is great characters and story wondrpus, and this book had it all and then some. Even the minor characters stood out to me, and they were fascinating. Like Chloe, she is a siren, a very minor role and yet she is very memorable. As well as a few other characters I figured a few things out, but other things I was oblivious to, until they were revealed.

Did I just write fabulous I promise I did NOT do that on purpose! Great writers write what they know I think that statement definitely has some truth to it. Kelley is an actress. I wonvrous if she knows any faeries personally? I think the thing I loved most about this novel was Kelley.

She is an exceptional female protagonist. I was instantly drawn to her character. When a cute guy tells her that faeries are real. She reacts like a normal person and laughs in his face. And I leskey mention Sonny. Mom can I have one? And yet, he can still rescue the damsel in distress even if she is mean to hin and laughs in his face. I simply cannot say enough good things about this novel.

I highly recommend you grab a copy of this book. It would make an awesome Christmas present! View all 8 comments. Jan 09, Marcy Jo rated it it was amazing Shelves: Wondrous Strange is one of those gems that I stumbled across completely by accident. I was in the book store looking to grab the second book in the BIFN series and of course I had to spend some time browsing while I was there.

The cover of this book gorgeous yes? Both of them put me in mind of “Wicked Lovely. Without even reading the inside flap, I grabbed the book and headed to the register.

This was a fortuitous happening. I’ Wondrous Strange is one of those gems that I stumbled across completely by accident. I’m not going to say too much, as to not give anything away since you know me well enough by now to know that I will hound you until you read this but I couldn’t get enough of these characters!

The story is chock full of fae lore, which is fantastic for those already mildly versed in it whether through the myths themselves or vicariously through other authors such as Holly Black or Melissa Marr and explained enough that complete novices in that world will not be lost.

The first half of the story is very whimsical and fun. So many of the little details that I crossed made my lips turn up into that grin that makes my husband shake his head tolerantly at me; the smile of a satisfied and enchanted reader.

The last half of it made my head spin with the suddenness of some of the plot points. That sounds like a negative, but it honestly wasn’t. The chaos of that llvingston of the story flows with the sudden chaos and confusion of the main characters.

The romance is sweet without being overtly cheesetastic.

Parts of the interaction between Kelley and Sonny are hilarious, as he isn’t quite accustomed to some modern speech patterns, and they sort of baffle and confuse each other when they first meet and later as well. It’s a cute and sweet little commentary on communication that I really enjoyed. The end was satisfying again with the looking hopefully to the future as opposed to the everyting-is-so-happy-with-rainbows-and-pants-that-never-wrinkle ending though it left me desperately hoping that a sequel is in the works.


All in all, I’m very pleased. Even more so that my copy of the book is a first edition. I have a suspicion this author is going places. View all 13 comments.

He’s one of the Janus Guard who protects the mortal realm from escaped fae and there’s a stdange in lifingston park that’s set to open soon.

Then most of the characters from Shakespeare’s play turn out to be real and Kelley finds out she’s view spoiler [more or less a faerie princess hide spoiler ]. I had a hard time getting into the whole story, though. And the names were a bit cringeworthy I’m sorry but “Sonny” is not going to sound like an awesome male lead no matter what he does.

And “Tyffanwy” just made me laugh. I think I would have liked this book a lot more in middle school because it’s not bad!!

Just definitely a “younger” YA book. Instagram Twitter Facebook Amazon Pinterest I didn’t post any status updates for livjngston – stealth review!!! When you’re as busy as I am, you want to have a book on you wondrius 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 ledley I was a bit hesitant about starting this book. It came out inat the start Instagram Twitter Facebook Amazon Pinterest I didn’t post any status updates for this – stealth review!!! 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 livinston day – But then, I figured it out.

Faeries are basically livvingston 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 squabbles for no apparent reason?

The glamor lies in the glamor or the glamour, if you’re a faerieand 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 Faeries are like the squeaky-clean version of vampires:
