Illusions by Aprilnne Pike A+
"Laurel hasn't seen Tamani since she begged him to let her go last year. Though her heart still aches, Laurel is confident that David was the right choice.
But just as life is returning to normal, Laurel discovers that a hidden enemy lies in wait. Once again, Laurel must turn to Tamani to protect and guide her, for the danger that now threatens Avalon is one that no faerie thought would ever be possible. And for the first time, Laurel cannot be sure that her side will prevail."
-Back of book.
This is the third book in the "Wings" series. I love those books and was worried that the next one wouldn't measure up. I was surprised how amazing her books are becoming, I love when an author's books become better with each new book. Illusions is fascinating and was fun for me because mentioned Tamani a lot more then in the other books. Loved it!!!!

My Fair Godmother by Janette Rallison A+
"After her boyfriend dumps her for her older sister, sophomore Savannah Delano wishes she could find a true prince to take her to the prom. Enter Chrissy (Chrysanthemum) Everstar: Savannah’s gum-chewing, cell phone–carrying, high heel-wearing Fair Godmother. Showing why she’s only Fair—because she’s not a very good fairy student—Chrissy mistakenly sends Savannah back in time to the Middle Ages, first as Cinderella, then as Snow White. Finally she sends Tristan, a boy in Savannah’s class, back instead to turn him into her prom-worthy prince. When Savannah returns to the Middle Ages to save Tristan, they must team up to defeat a troll, a dragon, and the mysterious and undeniably sexy Black Knight. Laughs abound in this clever fairy tale twist from a master of romantic comedy."
I know it's been a super long time since I've posted anything- major computer problems) but I'm super glad to be posting again. I met this author a few weeks earlier and I'd only read one of her books. Later I picked this one up from the library and could not put it down!! It's such a funny twist on fairy tale yet very adventurous at the same time. The characters were amazing and so real! I'm waiting for the sequel "My Unfair Godmother" and I can not wait to read it. I highly recommend this funny, clean, unique, story!
