Review "Tiger lily"
*During the summer of 2013 I read two amazing and beautiful books. One was Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson and the other was Shatter me by Tahereh Mafi . Now at the time I was at my mom and therefore I never got around to doing an actual review of these two books. Since both of these books were some of the best I've ever read I felt that despite all the time passing between reading it and this review, they deserve one regardless.*
Tiger lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
Before Peter Pan belonged to Wendy, he belonged to the girl with the crow feather in her hair. . . .
Fifteen-year-old Tiger Lily doesn't believe in love stories or happy endings. Then she meets the alluring teenage Peter Pan in the forbidden woods of Neverland and immediately falls under his spell.
Peter is unlike anyone she's ever known. Impetuous and brave, he both scares and enthralls her. As the leader of the Lost Boys, the most fearsome of Neverland's inhabitants, Peter is an unthinkable match for Tiger Lily. Soon, she is risking everything—her family, her future—to be with him. When she is faced with marriage to a terrible man in her own tribe, she must choose between the life she's always known and running away to an uncertain future with Peter.
With enemies threatening to tear them apart, the lovers seem doomed. But it's the arrival of Wendy Darling, an English girl who's everything Tiger Lily is not, that leads Tiger Lily to discover that the most dangerous enemies can live inside even the most loyal and loving heart.
From the New York Times bestselling author of Peaches comes a magical and bewitching story of the romance between a fearless heroine and the boy who wouldn't grow up
This is one of the most beautiful book I have ever read. The writing is amazing and the way that it's written in Tinkerbell's POV which makes it very unique.
A review I never thought I'd ever get written after all this time, but even after all this time I sill remember the beauty of the book and how much I enjoyed it. Enjoyed the story line, the writing and how it gave me a whole new view on the typical Peter Pan story. So it won't be a long review and with a lot of detail, but simply one stating how I feel about this book. Simply, I love it.
It might be said a lot, but it's one of the books that will be on my to be re-read list because I want to experience the whole thing once more.
So simply a book for anyone who knows the tale of Peter Pan, this will give you a whole new insight into the world.
About the author:
I write books about vaguely magical peach orchards, resorts in the afterlife, enigmatic island princesses beloved by Tinkerbell, and...civics! I was an awkward and strange child who kept lots of secrets. Now I live with a sweet Basenji dog named Peanut who loves to eat shoes, and a sweet husband who is good at all the things I'm bad at, like being organized and thinking things through. I've loved writing and reading about mythical and strange things since I can remember.
