Book of the Week #11: Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston

So, for the Book of the Week, I've decided I'm going to start choosing old books, that have been around for a while, as I feel that sometimes they get forgotten, unless they have sequels out. So, I've chosen Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston this week, because the last book in the series, Tempestuous, is coming out on the 21st December, which is in 2 weeks! =]

WONDROUS STRANGE
by Lesley Livingston



Title: Wonrous Strange
Author: Lesley Livingston
Publication Date: Jan 2009
When I Read It: March 2009
Synopsis: 17 year-old Kelley Winslow doesn’t believe in Faeries. Not unless they’re the kind that you find in a theatre, spouting Shakespeare—the kind that Kelley so desperately wishes she could be: onstage, under lights, with a pair of sparkly wings strapped to her shoulders. But as the understudy in a two-bit, hopelessly off-off-Broadway production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, wishing is probably the closest she’s going to get to becoming a Faerie Queen. At least, that’s what she thinks... In this fun, urban fantasy, Kelley's off-stage life suddenly becomes as complicated as one of Shakespeare’s plot twists when a nighttime trip to Central Park holds more than meets the mortal eye. - from goodreads.com
Recommended if: You love faeries, or Shakespeare.
Ages: 13+
Why I Loved It: Because I love faeries. They are my favourite of all supernatural creatures. Also, the way that it's written, with elements of A Midsummer Night's Dream woven in, is awesome!
My Review: http://cheezyfeetbooks.blogspot.com/2010/09/wondrous-strange-lesley-livingston.html
Why It's Book of the Week: Because Tempestuous, the last book in the trilogy, is coming out in 2 weeks, and I can't wait!

REVIEW: It's A Wrap by Perdita and Honor Cargill

Good morning! I have finally finished my degree (woohoo!) and so I (should) have all the time in the world for reading and blogging now! Here's a review of the final book in a series that I always love to read when I'm revising...  Read on for why I enjoyed this so much!  Title:  It's A Wrap  Author:  Perdita and Honor Cargill Series:   Waiting For Callback, #3 Pages:   351 Publisher:  Simon and Schuster Date of Publication:  31st May, 2018 Source:  Author Synopsis from Goodreads: Elektra James is back and her life is more hilariously chaotic than ever! Elektra is hoping for BIG things this year... She's finished her first feature film (even if her character was unexpectedly killed off half-way through filming), hosted the party of the year (well, before her mum arrived and threw everyone out - how embarrassing!) and managed to become Archie Mortimer's Actual Real Life girlfriend (for now anyway...), so things are most definitely moving in t
