Teaser Tuesday *Wings*

I am super ashamed to say that I forgot I had Wings by Aprilynne Pike. It's an advanced reading copy that is not so advanced now that May has passed. So I want to showcase it today because I am very excited about this book, it has been bumped bumped bumped up my to-be-read list to the top. And I'm addicted to the author's blog, too, she's so pretty.

From Aprilynne's website:
Aprilynne Pike's #1 best-selling debut, Wings, is the first of four books about a seemingly ordinary girl named Laurel who discovers she is a faerie sent among humans to guard the gateway to Avalon. When Laurel is thrust into the midst of a centuries-old battle between faeries and trolls, she's torn between a human and a faerie love, as well as her loyalties to each world. In this extraordinary tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever.

And here is your teaser:

She didn't even have to turn to see the new development. Long, bluish-white forms rose over both shoulders. For a moment Laurel was mesmerized, staring at the pale things with wide eyes. They were terrifyingly beautiful--almost too beautiful for words.

OOh, what will happen! In a way I love re-remembering books that I get jazzed about all over again.

I was just perusing the acknowledgments section at the back and Aprilynne is so funny:

{about friends from} "You are all awesome like whoa"

Aprilynne Pike is awesome like whoa.


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading.

I liked the book alright, but I wasn't crazy obsessed or impressed. I'll read the rest in the series, because I am a little bit invested in the outcome (team Tamani!). Hope you're enjoying it as much as anticipated!

You know, I think I have to start organizing my TBR list a little better. I just spent fifteen minutes reading through it to try and figure out if this book was on the list. It wasn't, although I'm sure I've *meant* to put it there. Spreadsheets. I need more spreadsheets.
