"See Me" (a wee little post by Lexi)


I am getting mucho better, especially recently! One of the books I've been reading is See Me by Wendy Higgins.

Summary: "While most seventeen-year-old American girls would refuse to let their parents marry them off to a stranger, Robyn Mason dreams of the mysterious McKale in Ireland, wondering how he’ll look and imagining his cute Irish accent. Prearranged bindings are common for magical families like her own, however when she travels to the whimsical Emerald Isle she discovers there’s more to her betrothal and McKale’s clan than she was led to believe. 

What starts as an obligatory pairing between Robyn and McKale morphs over time into something they both need. But one giant obstacle stands in the way of their budding romance: a seductive and deadly Fae princess accustomed to getting what she wants—and what she wants is McKale as her plaything. Love, desire, and jealousies collide as Robyn’s family and McKale’s clan must work together to outsmart the powerful Faeries and preserve the only hope left for their people." (Thanks, Goodreads!!!)

Now, this novel is totally nothing I'm usually reading at all. I mean, fairies? Leprechauns? What the-? I don't read that kind of stuff. But this novel seemed interesting, especially with the whole "arranged marriage" thing. I ended up truly liking this novel. It was very good, and the writing itself was great! I don't think that there was anything I would have changed. Though there's magical beings and situations involved, there were situations that were teenage and family issues as well. This entire novel was whole (no detail missing), and I truly liked it. The magic got me in the end, as did the imagery. Everything was so thoroughly done, the details fun and whole.

In Conclusion: Go for it!


4/5 of Ash and I's favorite leprechauns... (GO NOTRE DAME!!!)
