Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr review

Rule #3: Don't stare at invisible faeries.

Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in mortal world. Aislinn fears their cruelty—especially if they learn of her Sight—and wishes she were as blind to their presence as other teens.

Rule #2: Don't speak to invisible faeries.

Now faeries are stalking her. One of them, Keenan, who is equal parts terrifying and alluring, is trying to talk to her, asking questions Aislinn is afraid to answer.

Rule #1: Don't ever attract their attention.

But it's too late. Keenan is the Summer King who has sought his queen for nine centuries. Without her, summer itself will perish. He is determined that Aislinn will become the Summer Queen at any cost—regardless of her plans or desires.

Suddenly none of the rules that have kept Aislinn safe are working anymore, and everything is on the line: her freedom; her best friend, Seth; her life; everything.

I didn't enjoy this book what-so-ever. I tried my best to like it, I even tried rereading it hoping it would catch my interest, but it didn't.

The writing in the book was good, but the plot just didn't do it for me. I couldn't get myself attached to it and everytime I would pick it up, I would place it back down. I don't remember anything from this book to even tell you about the characters or the plot.

But I really did like the cover. Actually the cover made me pick it up. I know, I fell for the cover. And even though the saying says, "Don't judge a book by its cover", I did and I fell for an awful book. I love the cover how it seems so mystical, but yet like a faerie realm. And the girl holding the flower with snow on is just beautiful and it's one of the prettiest covers I've seen on a book.

But I know many people who have enjoyed this book, but this is only my opinion and you might have a totally different one. But for me this book just didn't cut it.

Overall, I won't be reading any of the sequals of this series, but if you're into faeries, this book may be for you.

  1. I couldn't agree with you more! I've had this book sitting around for AGES because a friend recommended it, but every time I pick it up and say "right, this is going to be the next thing on my reading list" I end up tossing it back down after a couple of pages. I really don't understand the appeal - it seems to me like the bland kind of plot people who are obsessed with Twilight would enjoy (and actually, the girl who recommended it to me is a hardcore Twilight addict...). Maybe if I tried reading a bit more of it my opinion would be different, but since you've said you read it TWICE and it didn't get any better... Wow. Maybe I'll just sell my copy on eBay or something. :P
