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!

*I am no longer accepting blog awards :( I do not have time to go through all the things that come with it, and though I'm honoured you thought of me, I'm sure you can find someone who will love it, and be able to carry out the rules :)
