Wings of the Wicked (Angelfire Series #2)

Wings of the Wicked - Courtney Allison Moulton Warning: A truly tiresome monologue ahoy!The kind of fuckery is this?They say when you are at the bottom, you can only jump higher. It certainly is true in the case of [a:Courtney Allison Moulton|3220024|Courtney Allison Moulton|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1267468265p2/3220024.jpg]. Her story jumped from the it-suck-so-bad-it-needs-be-stuffed-into-a-time-crack-and-erased-from-existence that was the first book to one hell of a crazy ride. If one year ago, somebody had told me I'd be back to this series and actually like it, I'd have beenBut between reading [b:the Girl who Circumnavigated fairyland in a ship of her own making|9591398|The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making (Fairyland, #1)|Catherynne M.

I needed cool-off time and what better way to rejuvenate yourself than laughing at a couple shitty-excuse-for-an-angel making out. I had another option but I'd rather die of passion(passionate rage is what I thought I'd be feeling) than be bored to death by the [b:Unearthly|7488244|Unearthly (Unearthly, #1)|Cynthia Hand|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1324782984s/7488244.jpg|9621771] series.So it starts with all:slash,slash,cut,boom,slashinsert annoying romantic momentslash,slash,cut,boom,slashinsert annoying romantic momentslash,slash,cut,boom,slashinsert annoying romantic momentinsert annoying normal life momentslash,slash,cut,boom,slashIt's so fucking cool. She chops and so much action, I'm giddy. But... ugh, the romance, the cheese-fest, the forbidden-ocity, KILL ME NOW!And Ellie is so fucking stupid at times that it's not even funny after the first few chapters. She's a true stupidling and a true annoyling. But then she has these moments of absolute smart-assery, and I just want to love her so much even though I never will.Oh man, I hate Ava. She's so cool and she probably loves Will. Oh man, I love Cadan even though he's all evil and stuff. Man, what do I do? Shit, Mother Will knows best.or I'm exaggerating?But at least I could kick all their asses.________________________________Will stared him down the way he had with Brian. “She’s mine.”“I am not yours, you caveman!”___________________________________“I’m so tired of this macho male ridiculousness. If you hithim, I hope he hits you back.”See what I mean? But then she goes all, mememememememmeme, and everyone else goes, youyouyouyouyouyou and Will goes, behappybehappybehappy. It's enough to make you wanna shave off her head and make omelets upon it. It's sickening. And while I'm out there bitching, let's put in that some parts of the book were horrendously boring. But dayuum, I appreciate how Moulton dealt with the whole friend-zone-guy-thingy. The third wheel accepts that she won't love him, but he still wants to her friend and that's enough for him. I liked him, though. He's the only one who doesn't lick her shit like it's the elixir or something. And why does there have to be prom? Always? It should be the one thing wiped from existence, no?Not sure if I mentioned it before I'm sure I did but there's so many action scenes and so fucking cool, so much figurative balls-playing and more vulgar things I thought better of before writing down(it's happening more and more often now). Even the couple of them where she doesn't do anything but stand to the side like a dorkus while everybody's busy being on the wrong side of monsterizng monsters, they are pretty cool. Or I'm delusional. Take your pick.Whatever, this is me and [b:Wings of the Wicked|8501291|Wings of the Wicked (Angelfire, #2)|Courtney Allison Moulton|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1307466067s/8501291.jpg|13367196]:GINTAMA TROLLS FOREVER
