Wondrous Strange (Wondrous Strange #1) by Lesley Livingston
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance
My Rating: 2 not very happy hearts 😦
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.
Um, not what I was hoping it would be. Strangely, I felt no real connection with any of the characters. It was as if I was watching their story play out through a frosted window. Disappointed.
