  1. Her wolves, Feo thought, were a bunch of the most beautiful criminalss yes a thousand times yes THIS is the book i was waiting for as a chaser to Rooftoppers this is all just wild speculation, but Cartwheeling in Thunderstorms just feels like it was written before Rooftoppers and maybe only saw the light of day to tide rabid fans like me over while rundell was writing her next masterpiece Cartwheeling in Thunderstorms is a fine book, it just doesn t read like it s from the same creative period a [...]

  2. DNF at page 61 Aristocrats in Russia believe that the killing of a wolf brings a unique kind of bad luck It is not the glamorous kind of bad luck, not runaway trains and lost fortunes, but something dark and insidious If you kill a wolf, they say, your life begins to disappear I was so excited to start this one because the premise sounded right up my ally and also the book cover is absolutely gorgeous And it did start out really great honestly, any story starting with Once upon a time will have [...]

  3. This was one of those books that is entirely BEAUTIFUL and also devastatingly BORING Such a quandary Like, I m seriously struggling to think of anything to say in this review because was a simple story Totally was It s a middle grade, which is fabulous And it had a lot of elements I m like 99% in love with But the execution of the story wasow I nap at slow, peoples I am a high speed humanoid THINGS I LIKED It s set in Russia LIKE HELLO YES PLEASE AND THANK YOU I have a weird obsession with Russi [...]

  4. Stories can start revolutions The Wolf Wilder was one of my most anticipated books of 2015 I refused to read my early copy as I wanted to wait to see Gelrev Ongbico s divine illustrations And it was well worth the wait I cannot decide which cover for The Wolf Wilder I love the most it s a stunning book, inside and out.The Wolf Wilder is a beautiful story about one girl s treacherous adventure through dangerous, snowy Russia to save her mother, who has been attacked and captured by the Russian Ar [...]

  5. This was such a gorgeous little book I mean, the cover on the edition I have is stunning but the actual story itself is just so beautiful.Feo and her mother live in rural Russia and train wolves to be wild again after aristocrats are done with them as pets The locals say Feo s halfway feral, but she just understands the wolves really well One day Feo befriends Ilya, a young soldier who was sent by a cruel general to kill her wolves A bunch of drama happens and then the two friends set off for St [...]

  6. Look at the beauty of wolves That should be all the incentive you need to read this book Wolves Also, the fact that this is a book by Katherine Rundell is another huge incentive Her books are little gems, and Rooftoppers was utterly charming as was this Follow the dark and stormy girl, the soldier view spoiler aka the dancing boy hide spoiler , the revolutionary, and the wolves as they journey through a Russian winter to discover how to be wild and how to be themselves, which may just be the mos [...]

  7. I badly wanted to love this book On the surface, it holds so much promise why wouldn t I be excited about a sharp elbowed Russian heroine who spends her time teaching partially domesticated wolves to howl again Plus, I ve enjoyed the author s other works, and I ve been excited about this one since I saw it on display but not being distributed at ALA It is, without a doubt, one of the prettier books I ve bought this year.Unfortunately, this is a disaster of a narrative It s getting two stars only [...]

  8. This book makes me feel ten years old again Every time I read a Katherine Rundell book I wonder why I ever spend time reading anything else Her writing style is so unique and stunning I could probably recognise it from one sentence Every word is a treasure, and her concepts are so original and different reading her books is like a breath of fresh air.Loved it.

  9. The Wolf Wilder is what children s fiction is all about A sweeping landscape, an unforgettable main character, a budding revolution, and wolves This book held my attention from the first page, so much so that I read a huge chunk of it in one sitting 50% I was instantly drawn into the snowy wilds of Russia, and my heart attached itself to Feo and the wolves without my knowing This book is just so unique, and genuine, and unlike anything I ve read before that it was impossible to put down.When we [...]

  10. Once upon a time, a hundred years ago, there was a dark and stormy girl This novel just goes to show you that you don t have to be old or tall to start a revolution And sometimes the bravest of individuals come in the smallest and fiercest packages.Feodora and her mother live deep in the Russian wilderness It s always been just the two of them, and they have an interesting occupation they teach domesticated wolves to be wild again Back in the day, Russian nobles showed their wealth and nobility [...]

  11. I really loved this book It had just lovely writing and a very fairy tale like feel about it, though action than you would usually find in a fable like novel Feo is a young Russian girl who is a wolf wilder she takes domesticated wolves whose owners don t want them any it is very unlucky to kill wolves in the story s Russia and wilds them by training them to hunt, howl and be wolves She is a strong and wonderful heroine facing off against a very evil Tsarist officer The background is pre Revolu [...]

  12. I laughed, I cried, felt like my heart would stop and then that it might break Feo and Sophie from Rooftoppers are somewhat interchangeable so don t read them too close together but otherwise I m pretty ok with that I can always read of heroines that are both badass and really untidy

  13. Stories can start revolutions Full disclosure I received a free electronic ARC for review through Edelweiss Mild trigger warning for sexual harassment of a minor Humans, on the whole, Feo could take or leave there was only one person she loved properly, with the sort of fierce pride that gets people into trouble, or prison, or history books A wolf who cannot howl is like a human who cannot laugh Once upon a time, a hundred years ago, there lived a dark and stormy girl She was wild in spirit and [...]

  14. The fact that fire in your soul beats fire on the ground The fact that love always beats fear And the fact that it helps to have wolves on your side Story After her mother is captured by an evil General Feo begins an adventure with her wolfs, her new friend Ilya and a lot of brave people.Characters I can t even choose which character I loved , they were all so kind hearted and brave and everyone had something that just made you love them But of course Feo was a great main character with her naiv [...]

  15. In three words warm, exquisite, enchanting Fear is as dangerous as hatred sometimes Animals know that Challenge ColourMeReadChallengeMy first book of the year was Katherine Rundell s Rooftoppers, which I absolutely adored it was magical and utterly charming, and it made me want to try of her books So, I put The Wolf Wilder on my list, and this has ended up being the book with which I completed my 2016 reading challenge my goal was 52 books The Wolf Wilder is just as enchanting a book as Rooftop [...]

  16. Wolves are the witches of the animal world God, I just love Katherine Rundell s writing It s so beautiful and magical and other worldly She truly has a gift with words She can transport the reader out of the mundane world and into a little slice of magic like no other 5 billion stars.This is now my second read of the year by this author and both have been 5 star reads for me And if you know me, you ll know I m kind of picky I don t just toss out 5 stars like candy at a parade A book really has t [...]

  17. This book might have a stellar cover, but it is one hot mess inside First of all if you are going to write a story featuring wolves, please research wolves You can t write a non fantasy story and say these are the way I need wolves to be for my storyline, so screw the reality of biology The wolf depictions were so unfactual and fantastical that many readers have mistaken it for Fantasy, when in actuality it is Historical Fiction For example, wolves do not have claws like bears and do not stand o [...]

  18. Children are the toughest creatures on the planet They endure Feo is not your regular 10 year old girl She can tell the weather by the smell of the wind, make a compass from scratch, and has three wolf friends ready to protect her when needed She is fiery and kind and will fight for those she loves.In one word, this book is delightful The plot itself is simple when the General of the Russian Army arrests Feo s mother for wolf wilding, Feo goes on a rescue mission to bring her back We get to see [...]

  19. OK, let me say upfront that I really like Katherine Rundell s writing This novel, set in the frozen woods of Russia, pits a mother Marina and her daughter Feo against a sociopathic general Rakov , who steals and kills at the supposed behest of the Tsar Mother and daughter work to return domesticated wolves to the wild when their inherent nature overcomes their training since killing wolves is bad luck When Rakov starts persecuting them due to a slaughtered elk, Feo fights back, partially blindin [...]

  21. 4.5 starsI d noted The Wolf Wilder for its beautiful covers Both the UK and US covers are simply gorgeous Despite my love of wolves and of beautiful covers, I hadn t really marked the book down to actually read As anyone who reads my blog regularly knows, I m super picky about middle grade, so I m rather hesitant to add them to my to read list When a copy of The Wolf Wilder showed up on my doorstep unsolicited, there was no doubt I would be giving this gorgeous book a try And, you know, turns ou [...]

  22. As playful and delightful as Rooftoppers, but this one s got a little bite to it It s the story of Feo, a little Russian girl who lives in the woods with her mother, and whose family for generations has un tamed wolves to turn them back into the wild Rundell s writing is just so consistently charming, interspersed with clever lines that made me laugh out loud Mama says pointing a gun is a failure of imagination Feo stared at him Truly, she thought, boys were not as good as wolves Cowardice is f [...]

  23. Thoroughly immersed in the BBC s sumptuous production of War and Peace, I have been in the mood for all things Russian in the past few weeks In my corner of England, we ve yet to see snow but there is snow aplenty in Katherine Rundell s The Wolf Wilder The main character, feral wolf girl Feo, plays with snow, hides in it, feeds it to wolf cubs and uses it as a weapon.This is Russian winter set approximately 100 years after Leo Tolstoy s epic novel There are rumblings of revolution an ineffectual [...]

  24. Aristocrats in Russia believe that the killing of a wolf brings a unique kind of bad luck If you kill a wolf, they say, your life begins to disappear So the wolf must not be shot, nor starved instead, it is packed up like a parcel by nervous butlers and sent away to the wolf wilder Feo and her mother live in the snowy Russia and train domesticated wolves to be able to fend for themselves they re wolf wilders Feo loves taking care of the wolves, especially the three who stay at the house because [...]

  25. Feo lives with her mother in the Russian wilderness, away from any civilization They are the people who are sent the wolves who have been reared in luxury in Russian homes It is bad luck to kill a wolf, so the wolves are given to Feo and her mother to release into the wild Feo has three wolves who are very special to her, Black, White and Gray The three live in a nearby chapel that is slowly decaying They are fully wild, but love Feo too, accepting her as part of their pack Things are changing i [...]

  26. The Wolf Wilder wollte ich unbedingt lesen, weil mir das Cover so wahnsinnig gut gefiel und der Klappentext mich einfach neugierig gemacht hat Am Anfang war ich auch ganz vernarrt in die Story rund um Feo und ihre W lfe, aber leider lie das dann sp ter etwas nach Im Buch geht es um ein junges M dchen namens Feo, das zusammen mit ihrer Mutter in einer H tte in Waldn he als Wolf Wilder arbeitet, sprich sie k mmern sich um verletzte W lfe, die damals viel als Haustiere oder zum Nutzen f r die Jagd [...]

  28. This is the first of Katherine Rundell s books I ve read so I had no expectations or pre conceived ideas about the author s style This book thoroughly entranced me from the first chapter, Feo and her mother are wolf wilders they teach unwanted pets how to reintegrate into their natural environment They live a solitary but happy life until everything changes when Feo s mother is taken away by soldiers Feo sets off with her wolf friends some human ones she makes on the way to save her mother Beaut [...]
