Not my typical choice for a novel I am very thankful I won it and had the pleasure of reading it.
Wondrous Strange takes its readers on a wonderful adventure of faeires, magic and mystical creatures while expanding our imagination and wonder.
Becoming accustomed to reading possible real life scenarios, feasible murders and crimes, I had a difficult time during on particular action scene but got through it and read the tale in its entirety. I was reminded of The Host by Stephenie Meyer but faster paced and a mythical book that actually kept my attention throughout. Directed to young adult readers I quite enjoyed this story and often times couldn’t wait to get back into it.
We follow Kelley, a mere mortal by the perspective of the Janus and Faeries, as she blossoms into adulthood and takes on responsibilities she never thought possible in a million years. Being promoted to lead actress in a Shakespearean play was something she thought would take all of her focus until she met Sonny.
Swept off her feet with the gift of a peach rose in late October then stalked by the man of her dreams, Kelley was confused and distracted with the idea of a horse in her bathtub and a roommate who strictly forbid pets in their apartment.
Wondrous Strange indeed had Central Park turning into a much more magical place than we imagine it today. Livingston’s writing style, fast paced action and beautiful romance made this novel a recommended read in my opinion. Of course it helps that she’s a fellow Canadian author.
Thanks for reading,
