Stork by Wendy Delsol

Saturday, April 16, 2011

Genre: Young Adult - Paranormal
Rating: 3 stars

What I Liked: This plot is truly different and unique - when have I ever read about a human Stork? Never. So it was a fresh take and brought something original for the Paranormal YA genre. I also enjoyed the main characters, Katla and Jack, and their relationship with each other. I thought it was believable, and didn't seem like it was the usual "love at first sight" kind of deal that I've been seeing a lot lately. I could actually see the basis of their friendship and their romance, which is key for me to root for them. I also really liked the overall plot and character development, and all the twists and turns weren't forced in any way whatsoever.

What I Was Indifferent About: The whole Stork premise was great like I said, and definitely original and unique, but something was missing. I just wanted more - more back story, maybe; just something more than what was there.

Overall: The execution lacked for me a bit, but I did enjoy this book. I was thoroughly entertained. I read this in two days, so it is fast-paced, which is a huge plus. The writing was conversational, casual, and readable as well and the characters were great. I will read its sequel when it comes out - and though I might not be super excited about it - I know I'll still be looking forward to find out what happens next.
