Wondrous!

It would be helpful if the celebrated Publisher's Weekly could actually get the details of the book correct before posting a review. Kelley's last name is "Winslow" not "Winston." Not to mention "naive" Kelley is one of the strongest main female characters to grace a book of this type in a long time. Instead of waiting around to be rescued by a contrived male "hero", she takes her destiny into her own hands and does her best to protect herself. Shakespeare himself seems to be sitting on the sidelines advancing the plot not "embellishing" it, and would be tickled by the effortless dialogue.

The errors in the review make one wonder if they got anything right.

A magical compelling read. Not to be missed.

If I had picked up Wondrous Strange a few months earlier, I may have enjoyed it a little more. Unfortunately, I read the Wicked Lovely and City of Bones series before this. It is impossible not to compare the books together because of all the similarities. My verdict is that there are some really funny, smart, and romantic parts in Wondrous Strange, but if you plan on reading it, read it first.
