Waiting on Wednesday (4)

There are so many books I'm waiting to arrive in the store. This week I want to talk about Wings by Aprilynne Pike. Have you heard about it?

Here's the back cover copy:
Laurel has never been the kind of girl whol believes in fairy tales and mysths, fables and legends ... until the day she learns the stunning truth about her own identity, forever changing her world.

In this extraordinary tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever.

I'm sold. Sounds great. And it's blurbed by Stephenie Meyer
"Aprilynne Pike's Wings is a remarkable debut; the ingenuity of the mythology is matched only by the startling loveliness with which the story unfolds"

Due out May 5th.

I've come to really enjoy author videos. They give a behind the scenes look at a book and an insight into the author that almost always make me want to read the book more. So thanks for posting it, Aprilynne, and thanks for finding the blog.
