48HBC: Wings

I read this morning, audiobooked it while at work (I'm so great at multitasking, I know!) and read once I got back home.

I'm now at 21 hours 7 minutes for my total. I've finished five books and gotten through four out of nine discs on my audiobook. I've also spent 2 hours and 25 min. social networking/blogging.

I just finished Wings and while I enjoyed it, I found it more simplistic than I had hoped. Plus it started off feeling very similar to Twilight. I hate when books are compared to Twilight but with the Stephenie Meyer blurb and thank you in the book, I couldn't overlook the similarities. I really liked the faerie stuff and I thought the author did a great job and it was very creative. The love triangle was ok, but I really dislike love triangles! And the big mystery or adventure or whatever felt a little childish. Really, the whole book felt like a great middle school read instead of the high school read I was expecting-if that makes sense.

I'll write a bigger review later. I'm off to start something new!

  1. Wow, you've really done a great job with the 48hbc. Next time I hope to be able to join in :-)

    Glad you enjoyed Wings even if it wasn't quite what you'd hoped for!

  2. I don't think I'd ever be able to pull off the 48 hour challenge. I haven't done anything like that since college (and that was out of necessity - studying all night). Good luck with the rest of your reading!

  3. Wow! You are amazing! I will be lucky to hit 20 hours, but since this is my first year doing it I don't feel so bad.

  4. Way to go! Wings was on my pile too, along with many other worth books, who are still sitting sad and unread...
