    One thought on “The Wanderers”

    1. The Wanderers isn t really what I expected and surprisingly, that s a good thing What I didn t read was not I was expecting especially because it was Paranormal, a genre I usually don t read I love that it was not heavy on the paranormal y side and maybe that s just me but because of that, I enjoyed the book even .Kate Ormand s words slays Honestly, the way she writes is just pure stunning Ormand never failed to transport me wherever her book was set I can really feel the atmosphere from the mom [...]

    2. DNF 25%So I tried I really did and I m not sure if I m just not in the right place and time for this or what but every time I picked this up my mind wandered off somewhere else I just couldn t get into it at all.I found Flo to be tedious Maybe she gets better later but she is a Pony Shifter in a traveling circus that in the first 20% of the book completely frets over jumping over flames in her first show.A Shifter so speed Healing right, who cares if you get burned B Really You are scared to jum [...]

    3. Really, really enjoyed this one I love circuses and carnivals so this was just right up my alley More thoughts to come.

    4. Buddy read with Jessica Robin although neither of them actually finished the book which probably tells you as much as my review will I had such incredibly high hopes for The Wanderers, first of all I loved the idea of a circus setting and then you add in that the circus performers are all shapeshifting children who are travelling the country while trying to avoid the Hunters who want to kill them and I was sure we were going to be in for an exciting adventure Honestly this book should have hit a [...]

    5. For a while now, I ve been starving for some good YA circus fiction, so I imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon this one and that gorgeous cover The blurb made me wary, though, because it seemed like the book would take a paranormal romance kind of path, not to mention that it feels like someone should ve reined in whoever wrote it because it gave far too much away from the plot I was write on both accounts My biggest gripe with this novel is that the circus is only a plot device that bare [...]

    6. I received an arc of this book from Edelweiss, in exchange for a honest review Actual rating 2.6 starsThe synopsis of this book immediately caught me.Circus shapeshifters This is or less the picture that came to my mind However, The Wanderers is not as I imagined it to be It has such potential and could have been a stunning reading It can t make the most of the two powerful themes it is expected to blend, though.You can t feel the vibrating, magical circus atmosphere, nor the complexities of th [...]

    7. Such a fantastic, gripping book I loved The Wanderers by Kate Ormand With an evocative, majestical circus background and a feisty main female character, this book enchanted me completely Flo was strong and sassy, yet sweet and kind too, and her friend love interest, Jett was irresistibly lovable and dreamy.The magical abilities of these characters were powerfully handled by Ormand and the pacing was perfect This book made me smile, clutch it anxiously and melt with the feels.I would highly recom [...]

    10. Okay So A circus made completely of shape shifters And when I say shape shifters, I don t only mean wolves Beautiful story, complex characters you feel all the things for, and a love interest who is so ungh.Seriously, people What s not to love The Wanderers begins with a shape shifter, Flo and her musings as she watches animals perform all kinds of tricks on stage Unbeknownst to the audience, the animals are actually shifters, much smarter than normal animals, able to perform stuff that only hum [...]

    11. Check out this and my other reviews on my blog, Here s to Happy Endings Although I ve never really been a fan of books that involve circuses I ve only ever read Water for Elephants, by Sara Gruen , I thought the idea for this one sounded pretty interesting a circus made up of shape shifters That s certainly different , and I instantly wanted to read it.Turns out, it really is as fantastic as the synopsis makes it sound It s completely different, and I had no trouble getting into the story In fac [...]

    12. I loved Kate s first book Dark Days and when I heard she had a new book coming out, well it was a no brainer to grab a copy with my eager mitts.The Wanderers follows a group of circus performers as they barely scrape together a living They are performers with a difference though, they are shifters.I have read a lot of books with shifters in them and it is such a novel idea to put them within the confines of a big top The story centres around Flo, a young girl just starting her performing career, [...]

    13. Actually a 3.5 star rating.Check out my full review here youtube watch v g9JegI love the circus, I love shape shifters, I love YA So when I got a message from the publisher asking me if I wanted to get an ARC in exchange for an honest review it of course I said yes Dark Days, the other YA book by Kate Ormand, was a book that I very much enjoyed so I looked forward to reading this one.So let s get started with the things that I loved about this book I loved the circus, I loved the shape shifters [...]

    14. I ve been looking forward to reading The Wanderers ever since I heard the unique title and when I saw the beautiful and suggestive cover I knew that this book would appeal There s something magical and secret about a circus, behind the curtains is where I wanted to be as the reader, to find out what really goes on once the face paint has been removed and the lights have gone down and Kate Ormand didn t let me down The novel opens as Flo comes of age and has to perform under the big top in front [...]

    15. The concept of the story is definitely strange and new for me, which made me interested to read it in the first place I have to say I was a bit alienated with the story but it was pretty interesting to read.The Wanderers tells the story of Flo, a shapeshifter who transforms into a horse She, along with other shifters, work in a circus where they perform shows every night as their animal counterparts Their group has always been on the look out for Hunters but what they didn t know was that the Hu [...]

    16. I was at Uni with Kate and she s a lovely person so I was worried about how I might review this book if I didn t like it Well I really loved it I enjoyed the way that the character of Flo developed from her first faltering circus performance to her gathering strength and self belief The shape shifter circus is an original and intriguing idea that could certainly develop into a sequel or even a series There are some moments of pure magic in this book and the book itself and the cover art are beau [...]

    17. Flo is a shapeshifter, and part of a circus filled with others like her She has just come of age and started to perform, managing to beat her nerves to take part in the show But when a performance goes wrong, she uncovers a sinister plot that puts them all in danger Can she escape and save herself, love interest Jett and the other shifters the only family she has or is this the final curtain for all of them I was already a big fan of Kate Ormand after her debut, DARK DAYS, was published, but I l [...]

    18. There s a new crop of werewolf books but, The Wanderers really stands out simply because it has a different perspective Not all shape shifters are wolves, not all supernatural entities are inherently evil and even if you have special powers, grown ups often lie to kids, for their own good I think this book needs a sequel.

    19. So newsflash, I m a total sucker for moody books in which it rains a lot Is anyone surprised No Okay The Wanderers was a unique take on teen shifters a gloomy, emotionally raw and evocative world of orphaned homeless teens striving for a meaningful change and finding strength in community Flo the protagonist and her to the point narration was a perfect match for this story I quite loved it.

    20. Full disclosure I received a free electronic ARC for review through Edelweiss On a scale of one to ten, my level of excitement over The Wanderers scored around a seven or eight not bad for an author I ve never read before So I was pretty bummed to find myself DNF ing this one at the 41% mark.I mean, just look at that ridiculous cover lush and gorgeous and full of mystery I know what they say about not judging a book, but the lovely circus artwork featured on the cover had me jonesing for a peek [...]

    21. ARC copy provided by the publisher via EdelweissOriginal rating 3.5 out of 5This review and can be found over at Bookwyrming ThoughtsKate Ormand takes a unique twist in The Wanderers, following a group of nomad shapeshifters traveling under the guise of a circus Flo has been part of the circus ever since she was young, but has always thought of what the world would be like if she were not a part of the circus When she accidentally reveals what the circus really is publicly, shapeshifter hunters [...]

    22. I really enjoyed The Wanderers I dove into it without scrutinising the synopsis the concept of shapeshifter circus was hook enough and so the whole story felt like a really fun rollercoaster ride It went to places I didn t expect, and I loved that.The Wanderers opens by slowly introducing us to Flo and the circus Juicy nuggets of world building, such as the story of Lydia and the Wolf , helped immerse me in the story I enjoyed learning about the shapeshifters world alongside Flo a world which g [...]

    23. Flo is a shape shifter she turns herself into a horse and travels with a circus of shifters Now that Flo is sixteen, it is time for her to start performing but she doesn t feel ready.Flo worries so much about the possibility of hunters coming for her, that she messes up her routine This gives the hunters a chance to make their move, and now the whole circus is in dangerThis book was so well written and fast paced, I was nearly late for work finishing chapters and wanting to go straight on to the [...]

    24. A completely fresh and original story about circus shapeshifters, on the run from hunters Jett and Flo were an excellent couple, and SO touchy feely A horse is such a refreshing choice for a shapeshifter, and it worked really well I m looking forward to the sequel in 2017.

    25. Welcome to the world of shifters and hunters.I really enjoyed this book the style of writing for my gripped from the start In the first book of the series you meet Flo the Horse Shifter as she prepares to perform for the first time at the circus where she is part of the troupe After a couple of performances it all goes wrong when Hunters come to the circus From there on out it s all downhill for Flo and her friends They are betrayed by people who they believe are protecting her and find strength [...]

    26. The concept of the book was whimsical and entertaining and there were plenty of ups and downs to keep me on the edge of my toes, but the writing style seemed simplistic and bland I really enjoyed the way the author dropped the reader straight into the story and the level of empathy she was able to produce for the protagonist s I wish Ormand played with her sentence structure and used elevated vocabulary to create a sophisticated atmosphere rather than the middle school fiction novel energy thi [...]

    27. A circus made up of shiftersl of them kids who shift into different animal forms Lots of action and the fight to survive against all odds.

    28. Quirky, exciting and packed with action, The Wanderers marks an intriguing new direction for one of UKYA s most remarkable voices Yet even with one foot in urban fantasy, one foot in contemporary, another in dystopia, and still planted in action adventure and sci fi, this book is no beast It s a cleverly written and surprisingly slim story it has just enough twists and turns to keep you reading and a body count that could give Game of Thrones a run for its money.This isn t just any old shapeshi [...]

    29. For reviews go to best of yaSixteen year old Flo s life is anything but ordinary she is just one of many performers in a traveling circus On the outside, this seems like any normal animal circus, but the secret lies in the fact that there aren t any actual animals in tow Instead, the humans shape shift into their animal forms when it is time to perform Shifters are unknown to the human world, so when a human spots Flo practicing her routine, panic seizes the circus and anxiety causes Flo to acc [...]
