Tragic Pause

I'm sorry I'm behind on my reading. The bullying is getting even worse and last night my mom and dad came home with my aunt with bad news. My grandma had been in the hospital for a long time, because of an Ulcer. They were finally going to let her come home when something bad hit. She died after awhile. After her husband, my papa, died all she wanted to do was be with him and now she is. The hardest thing she did was let go of her family on Earth. She was surrounded by friends and family, including her pastor. May she rest in peace.

If you read this, like it and if you want to you can talk about a family member you were very connected to. I would love to hear from you guys, sometimes it helps to remember their best moments, or in my case read a book.

Book Review: Wings - The Wings Series


Laurel was mesmerized, staring at the pale things. 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.
Laurel's life is the very definition of normal . . . until the morning when she wakes up to discover a flower blooming from her back. As it turns out, nothing in Laurel's life is what it seems. Now, with the help of an alluring faerie sentry who holds the key to her true past, Laurel must race to save her human family from the centuries-old faerie enemies who walk among them.
My Review

This is the first book of the Wings Series. The author is Aprilynne Pike. The book is 320 pages long. There are four books: Wings, which I already read, Spells, Illusions, and Destined.

Laurel has always been different, only eating fruits and vegetables and drinking Sprite. She has never been to the doctor, either. She used to live in this beautiful house in a forest, but her father got a new job opportunity so they were going to sell it. There is something very important at Laurel's old home... or someone! Then, one day she woke up to a huge bump in the middle of her back. What is happening to her? Why is Laurel's old property so important?

I liked how the author made the fairies unique. No one would have thought of fairies as plants. It is pretty confusing, but it clears up at the end. I think the next book explains more, because all you know is that she is different. I like how it's kind of a love triangle, she feels bonded to another fairy because of her past relationship with him, but she also shows gratitude to a human that has helped her through her changes.
