Bookanista Feature: Robin McKinley's PEGASUS

Today is the first launch day of the new book review bloggers - The Bookanistas: Books are the New Black. We are a group of writers - in various stages of the publishing process – who have decided to band together and review the special books of our peers. We – as fellow writers – have decided to only post positive reviews, therefore, only reviewing the book we LOVE. No negative reviews here!

The Bookanistas give nothing but love!

Starting today, we will post reviews every Thursday that cover various topics– upcoming ARCs, books we love, special diamonds in the rough, classics, and even cover reviews. This fashionable badge represents our group (club/gang/posse/secret society/peeps). Here is a list of the Bookanistas: Christina Fonseca, Jamie Harrington, Michelle Hodkin, Kirsten Hubbard, Shelli Johannes-Wells, Myra McEntire, Shannon Messenger, Bethany Wiggins and Suzette Saxton, Beth Revis, Lisa and Laura Roecker, Sarah Frances Hardy and Katie Anderson, Scott Tracey, and Carolina Miller!

PEGASUS by Robin McKinley

I got this ARC from a very dear friend of mine, and have not been able to put it down (until, erm, oceans separated me from it. I did no reading in Europe, shame on me!).

If you need a reason to pick this one up, I refer you to the prettyprettyamazinglypretty cover above. I THAT is one beautiful cover!

And what's even better? The words inside are more beautiful.

Well, of course they are. Robin McKinley wrote them.

But if I had to pick one thing I love more about this book than anything else, it would be simply this: Robin McKinley makes me believe that pegasi could be real. She does an amazing job of creating realistic mythical characters with their own mythology, beliefs, history, and personalities that make me think they are truly real. This is not a story where a girl rides a pretty winged horse--no, pegasi in this story are not at all just winged horses, and they have their own truly unique tale to tell.
