Currently Reading: Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr

18 Jul

RULE #3

Don’t stare at invisible faeries.

RULE #2

Don’t speak to invisible faeries.

RULE #1

Don’t ever attract their attention.

Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in the moral world. When the rules that have kept Aislinn safe from them stop working, everything is suddenly on the line: her freedom: her best friend, Seth: her life: everything.

Faery intrigue, moral love, and the clash of ancient rules and modern expectations swirl together in Melissa Marr’s stunning twenty-first century faery tail.

I’m currently about 1/3 of the way through at this point. It’s not quite as compelling as I had originally hoped. I’ve been reading for about 4 days now, which is unusually slow progress to be honest.

Some of the situations that are being used as solutions to various problems in the story come across as being a bit convenient. Personally, I think the story line could be more interesting if things weren’t simply being handed to Aislinn quite as much.

Anyway, I’ll keep reading and see how it goes.

UPDATE: So, I’ve finished reading this book and I’m glad I stuck with it. While it wasn’t the greatest book I have ever laid eyes on, it was entertaining and the plot did begin to pick up shortly after the 1/3 mark.

I gave it 3 out of 5 stars.
