Reading

I have a very good friend who is a bit older than I am, and her two daughters are 14 and 12. The 14 year old is a fairly avid reader, as is her mom, and was the one to introduce me to the Twilight books. Now, when I was younger the books I read were mostly fantasy/sci fi, with a little of historical fiction in for good measure, and I thoroughly enjoyed the Twilight series. I mean, it was a bit heavy on the gushy love part but the characters were very well developed and the vampire/werewolf storyline was very enveloping. Anyhoo, being a member of goodreads.com, I have been able to find other fantasy books that I might like, and the daughter of my friend also has made some recommendations that I decided to order at the children’s bookstore that employed me all through college (actually, when I ordered the few books last week they also sent me with some other fantasy titles that they wanted reviewed, which I’m all for). So, I decided to read one of the 14-year-old’s recommendations, Wicked Lovely, which is about Faeries. Now, I’ve never been that into Faeries and had a hard time following this book at places. I mean, it wasn’t impossible, and it’s written for high schoolers so it’s not like it had tons of long annoying words that I had to look up, and it did end up being very entertaining, but it puts me in a funny place: do I read the sequel? I don’t really think I want to, but at the same time I want to know what happens…
