"I need to love her. But first, I have to get over hating her."

I absolutely adore A. Wilding Wells' book covers and titles. She is such a creative and out of the box thinking author, that she surprises me with each and every book. Sunshine Bleeds A Black Edge was another great and entertaining book by this amazing author. The characters were just as I expected very unique and intriguing. I have no idea where she gets her inspirations from for all

Oh my goodness where have I been hiding myself and not realising that this book existed lol and I'm totally not that immune to books like this cause yes when you judge a book without at least giving it a chance this is what happens I ignored and just breeze through it, but not a chance in hell now cause I loved it (squeals like a tween hehe) say hello to Rebel Field and hello also to Ruby Mae.

I'm glad I took a chance on this book cause A Wilding Wells knows how to really give a good book this t

I loved everything about Rebel & Ruby's Story. From the very beginning.

The way they went from being eachother's EVERYTHING to the ENEMIES they were when the book started. I loved the banter and emotion in the beginning of the book. I loved being inside their heads and all the things they were feeling, going crazy for one another. I loved Ruby May's adorable dialogue and Rebel's IDGAF attitude. Seriously, just everything about these two made me crazy.

PDL's Rating: 4.5 'Sweet Thing' Punches (Really Liked)

One of the things I look forward to the most from this author from each release is the anticipation of her characters. Every single book this author writes, her characters are beyond unique and amazing and one find themselves fully immersed and head over heels in love with her imperfectly perfect characters’ and their world. I always find myself falling possibly more in love with these characters flaws than anything! Sunshine Bleeds A Black E
Absolutely my favorite AWW book to date. While it shares my favorite elements from her other words - characters that connect to me and hold on, deep and abiding chemistry between the leads, quirky secondary characters, and frustrating but funny family - it takes those elements, kicks them up a notch and then adds in a devastating mystery.

I am consistently amazed at Wells' ability to create a story that is both completely over-the-top and entirely believable. Ruby and Rebel's story is no differen

I was looking forward to reading this story. A Wilding Wells always has this way of transporting readers into a fun and quirky world. And this book did not disappoint. Rebel and Ruby's story was unexpected and I love that about her writing. You think you know what the story is going to be but she always manages to surprise us, and I always end up crying. I am in love with her words and I always want more!! Absolutely a must read!!! ...more

Did I like this book??
Well, that's definitely a stupid question...because I LOVED IT, of course!!!

This is the 3rd book in The Wild Things Series, but can be read as standalone. Alternating POV. I received this ARC from the amazing author, and this is my unbiased review.

A Wilding Wells has once again blown my mind with an immensely gut wrenching novel! I don't know how she does it, but she has a way of combining so many different elements together in a book, and it wo

Oh Rebel Rebel!! I love you so. In this case Rebel is all man and a mighty good one at that. Besides having a dirty mouth he's also a loving and supportive father among other things. He has loved Ruby Mae Rose forever despite the time apart.

Ruby Mae is living a whirlwind life in Paris. She accepted a modeling contract right out of high school purely based on a tragedy. She made rash decisions and left behind her heart with Rebel Fields. She heads home with
Amber- Leave Me Alone I’m Reading
Wow, I just LOVED Rebel Field! Some of his words ripped my heart out given the circumstances. The angst in this book is at an all time high. Secrets are locked up tight and there are mysteries to solve! I thought I knew all along whodunnit, but of course I was wrong. There are so many twists and turns throughout this unique story. As always, A. Wilding Wells delivers in the interesting and colorfully-flawed character department. I just adore the side characters in her books.
Overall, a great rea

Wonderfully whimsical

Around 4am this morning, I finished Sunshine Bleeds A Black Edge by A Wilding Wells. As always there is so much charm and magic in her writing that I find myself devouring the pages hoping the fairy dust will stay on my fingertips. I want to live in Snowvale to swim in the lakes, pick at the cherry trees and ride atop elephants. I want to be friends with the fragile but strong, beautiful but eccentric and utterly captivating characters. My life goal would be to have an ice

"Time was...It was motionless and dense and impenetrable."

It seems that EVERY SINGLE TIME I read a book penned by A. Wilding Wells there are lines or passages that seem to be directed to my soul. The quirky souls of her characters stay with you long after you say goodbye to them.

Rebel and Ruby's love and heartache also tells of quiet strength and sacrifice. The love shared amongst all the characters is one that ultimately signifies acceptance. Acceptance of change. Acceptance of letting go of

Please, oh please get me out of my book slump....

5 yes, it certainly did bring me out of my slump!

I love this author's writing. Her quirky characters (and unusual names - Rebel, Rifle, LOL) and hilarious situations make me giggle. But, behind all this is a serious story interwoven with a swoony male and strong, feisty female. I loved these two together and wished desperately for them to come out the other side together and whole.

Parts of this story broke my heart. I hurt so much for

If there's one thing that i love when i read a A. Wilding Wells book is to expect the unexpected. She writes outside the box not just sticking to a format. Her creativity in life shines through in her words. Which gives us as readers an intriguing, captivating read.

This is why my rating is 5+ stars because i never know what i'm going to get. Yes we get the Blurb/Synopsis but for ME as soon as i'm turning the first page its like being blindfolded and putting your had into a bag of Skittles y

I was hooked into this story since chapter one and was intrigued throughout the entire book. I never know what to expect when reading a new book by A.Wilding Wells and I often am pleasantly surprised as to how it all turns out. That being said, I do know that I can expect an interesting read, with awesome characters to root for and fantastic writing. I really enjoyed this book. The storyline, the characters and their backstory were so interesting. Loved it! I can't wait to read what's next! ...more

I think this is one of the hardest books to review, I have been dying to get a chance to read one of Tracy's books and when I received this ARC I thanked the heavens for the opportunity, little did I know that this book is gonna leave me in tears, both sad and happy, sad because it ended and happy because it is such a beautiful book, now I'm even more enthusiastic to read the rest of her books, This book really deserves more than five stars.

A. Wilding Wells is my hero! Her writing is so magical and poetic and it makes me feel so many things, every single damn time. Sunshine Bleeds a Black Edge is filled with her usual stuff: quirky characters, beautiful emotion, heartbreaking events and love, so much love. But, this time it's tinged with something a little more. It's got a mystery at its core, it's in the background, but it informs every single action this cast takes. Especially Ruby and Rebel. And most especially Ruby.
