This is a place for my opinions on what I read, some movies or whatever else I find interesting. I love reading. I can find something positive about everything I read, at least I hope I can. I understand it takes a great deal of love and effort to write a book and to get it published. An author does not set out to write a crappy book, this is/was their baby. They got up at all hours of the night to feed it.

I don't see how you can give a true review of a book rushing through it. Don't you need to savor it a bit? I don't want my opinion to discourage anyone from reading. I hope you find something here you find interesting.

I buy most of my books, I get a few ARC, and I visit my library when my funds are low. I'm not trying to get you to buy anything by my opinions on the books I've read. I don't care if you buy it, borrow it, or check it out at the library. Just read. :)

SUMMARY: Book 2 in the Wings series
Although Laurel has come to accept her true identity as a faerie, she refuses to turn her back on her human life and especially her boyfriend, David, to return to the faerie world.
But when she is summoned to Avalon, Laurel's feelings for the charismatic faerie sentry Tamani are undeniable. She is forced to make a choice, a choice that could break her heart.

I really enjoyed Wings but I thought Spells was so much better.
We get a little more action in Spells, with even more evil trolls. Laurel finds comfort in the fact she can finally be herself at home, after telling her parents she is a faerie, but also finds it a little more stressful as the whole faerie thing seems to be driving her and her mother apart. The way the author described Avalon, I could totally see it as a beautiful mystical place, and understand just how hard of a choice Laurel was faced with when it came to deciding which world she belonged in.

The love triangle between Tam, Laurel and David becomes more intense as each relationship is explored farther. When Laurel was with David, I thought, without a doubt, this is the guy she should be with. He understands her and just wants her to be herself and a chance to love her. Then, when she was with Tamani, I would think, this is so the faerie man she should be with. He has loved her forever and he is the only one who truly knows her.

Laurel learns she can't do everything herself and she must rely on the help of others. And she can't keep living in two different worlds hurting both the men in her life.
Great read, can't wait to read the next.

Book Odor Removal:

I bought a book at a library book sale, it had a strange odor. Someone gave me this suggestion to remove the smell, and it worked, so I thought I'd share.
Put the book in a ziploc bag along with 1/3 cup(more or less) of Arm & Hammer baking soda and seal shut. Leave the book alone for 2 or 3 days. It worked for me, hope it helps you too.
