My (Not so) Random Pick
Wink Poppy Midnight
By April Genevieve Tucholke
Publisher: Dial Books
Kindle ASIN: B010N18IEU
Genre: YA Mystery/Magical Realism
The intrigue of The Virgin Suicides and the “supernatural or not” question of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer coalesce in this young adult mystery, where nothing is quite as it seems, no one is quite who you think, and everything can change on a dime.
Every story needs a hero.
Every story needs a villain.
Every story needs a secret.
Wink is the odd, mysterious neighbor girl, wild red hair and freckles. Poppy is the blond bully and the beautiful, manipulative high school queen bee. Midnight is the sweet, uncertain boy caught between them. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Two girls. One boy. Three voices that burst onto the page in short, sharp, bewitching chapters, and spiral swiftly and inexorably toward something terrible or tricky or tremendous.
What really happened?
Someone is lying.
For fans of Holly Black, We Were Liars, and The Raven Boys, this mysterious tale full of intrigue, dread, beauty, and a whiff of something strange will leave you utterly entranced.
So this week I am actually featuring a title I just started reading. I had decided earlier in the week that I wanted to feature this one and the last night actually purchased a copy and dove in. I am head over heels with the writing and cannot wait to see how this ends. Have you read Wink Poppy Midnight or any of April Genevieve Tucholke’s works? What are you reading at the moment?
