#Review of Wild Swans by @jessica_shea

Wild SwansAdd it to Goodreads
The summer before Ivy’s senior year is going to be golden; all bonfires, barbeques, and spending time with her best friends. For once, she will just get to be. No summer classes, none of Granddad’s intense expectations to live up to the family name. For generations, the Milbourn women have lead extraordinary lives—and died young and tragically. Granddad calls it a legacy, but Ivy considers it a curse. Why else would her mother have run off and abandoned her as a child?

But when her mother unexpectedly returns home with two young daughters in tow, all of the stories Ivy wove to protect her heart start to unravel. The very people she once trusted now speak in lies. And all of Ivy’s ambition and determination cannot defend her against the secrets of the Milbourn past….





I heart books, board games, tea, the color pink, theatre, twirly dresses, and bells chiming the hour. I live in Washington, DC with my playwright husband and a cuddly cat named Monkey. I work part-time as a children's library associate for the DC Public Library. I'm frighteningly enthusiastic. 

I use GR to keep track of what I read and to recommend books that I really love.

I wish I liked this book as much as I LOVED Born Wicked. Wild Swans was a cute read, I just think the problem was that it was contemporary. It's not that I hate contemporary but I just really prefer fantasy. It had a interesting plot and good characters and if some fantasy elements were added...it'd be perfect.
