I give up.I just can t take it When your back starts to hurt because you re trying to drag your eyes across the heavy pages of a non event insipid book like this one, it s time to call it quits Like, forever.I don t know how many times, while I was reading this, that I ended up staring into space and only realizing that I was after ten or so minutes had passed and the book fell out of my hand I was so uninterested in this story that I began to daydream about exponentials and I started to notice the wisps of dog hair on the hardwood floor Nothing happens in this book Nothing Literally, nothing Everybody is going around their daily lives without any kind of issue the only one who has an actual problem is Donia, but she was so dull I started skipping chapters whenever her name appeared under the nonsensical quotation I just don t give a shit what happens to any of the characters Seth is a goth so what Aislinn sees faeries so what Keenan wants a Summer Queen so the fuck what The main plot of this book was basically just all the characters trying not to sleep with each other It s not hard, people, and it s also not interesting to anybody who isn t there Reading this book was like sitting at the back of the school bus while everybody talks about how they went to a party at the weekend and this person was rud to have boned this person, but when you go and actually ask whoever it was whose name was inserted into Generic Party Event Template they tell you they either did
2 7 18 ON SALE for 3.99 by Rabid Reads3.5 starsThe first time I read WICKED LOVELY by Melissa Marr I did not like it It was too dark I was too young to catch the deeper connotations that Marr was communicating If it hadn t been published in that weird in between time when I was pretty current on all the interesting series in my preferred genres and therefore desperate for reading material , I probably never would ve read the second book But it was, and I did And it remains my favorite YA series about Fae Aislinn, like all of her female ancestors, has the Sight She can see through faery glamour, magic used to either make the Fae invisible to humans entirely or to make them appear to be human themselves There are many rules her grandmother taught her to ensure her safety, but they re all extensions of a single concept keep the secret.Faeries don t want to be seen, and if they discover a human who can see them that human will be lucky to simply have their eyes gouged out Like I said Dark.But that by itself isn t unusual and I love Fae, sooooo what was my problem This time around, I finally figured it out B c despite improving with the reread, I enjoyed it for the authenticity, for the underlying message I had previously overlooked, for the anticipation of what I know will come next not for this story Not for these characters.Aislinn and Keenan Not a huge fan of either of them at this point Donia, yes Niall, also yes, bu
Readable but bland.Most of my dissatisfaction with this book stems from the fact that what passes for a plot with Wicked Lovely would have been used as a sub plot in any other It can be summarised like this KEENAN gives Aislinn a choice between two options AISLINN flees SETH waits for Aislinn KEENAN waits for Aislinn DONIA waits for Aislinn BEIRA issues occasional Ursula like threats AISLINN AISLINN AISLINN makes choice BOOK ends So the entire book revolves around Aislinn, which could have been interesting if Aislinn s interactions showed the slightest spark But no Towards the end, it feels as if other characters start kicking her towards character development because she s not going there by herself.There s also the fact that Seth was a cardboard prop boyfriend with tattoos If he were secretly an interesting character made one dimensional by love for Aislinn, I would be fine with it well, okay, I wouldn t, but I would be willing to adjust to that than I am to S
I liked this book a lot than I thought I would I mean, usually when a book is hyped up a lot my immediate reaction is to roll my eyes and wonder if it s worth the hype I didn t start reading the Harry Potter series until the third one was already out and then I read them all in one sitting So, I m a book cynic and was worried that I would mind trash this baby Ok, first of all the most gorgeous cover ever Provocative, beautiful, and well, well done Harper Collins Here s the thing about the writing, I felt like this was a good book I really enjoyed it, i got caught up on it I liked the concept a lot it just felt like it could ve used one polish if that makes sense Some of the sections feel disjointed from one another, just in terms of narrative I absolutely love how the main character avoids the fey, but then suddenly it s a huge about face that I didn t quite follow with her I also thought that the relati
Oy vie What a horrible book I decided to change it s title to Beautiful and Vapid Hormones Melissa Marr held so much promise for a feisty female protagonist, willing to fight the allure of immortal beauty and power for our mundane yet necessary mortality Sadly, Aislinn the main character faded into nothingness in the last few chapters It seemed as though Marr couldn t sacrifice either of the two worlds for her Aislinn and so gave her both, which in my opinion, gives her nothing Life demands sacrifice for true happiness Hormones ruled, not love or the quest for right, just penises and breasts, sorry to be so blunt, but it s too true I m thoroughly disappointed Perhaps if the story started the way it began I wouldn t be so upset But Marr set a beautiful stage, perfect characters with bright promises of illuminating lives It s as if Marr put all her energy and wit into the first act It was perfectly coordinated, hopeful lives waiting for tough decisions to show their
People tell me I have a short attention span They mention, on some rare occasions, that I tend to space out easily That one moment I ll be listening and paying attention and the next moment Oh sparkly With that I m lost It s amazing how many teachers have been the ones to remind me of my poor ability to pay attention Remarkable reallyWhat was I saying Oh yeah So it takes a little bit to capture my attention and to keep it Usually an abnormal amount of sex, violence or suspense will do the trick Or if the writing is super duper fabulous By the way, if only you knew how many times I ve gotten distracted and forgotten to keep typing, you d be surprised Or maybe not Anyway, point of the matter is that Marr has my number She knows what people like me are like It s insidious really Her nefarious schemes to keep my wavering attention with sex and horror have not gone unnoticed though I m onto her What does she think of her audience That they ll overlook the TERRIBLE editing job and shaky story telling with sex Okay, so maybe it worked a little just a little bit Because every time you start getting bored, some hot guy starts putting the moves on, or his fingers start roaming, or flirting starts happening That, or you think you re about ready to yawn and some evil person shows up and starts hurting other things.It took me a little while to get what she was doing What with the oral sex and the obvious lust inducin
Well guys, for over a year I had a review of this I gave this book 1 star, so to say the least, my review was not positive But see, I got tired of constantly having to delete all the troll screaming comments, so I ultimately removed the review.The reason I didn t like this book is because it was one of the first YA titles I ever read, and I was really put off by the content That s my prerogative I know that probably sounds like a revolutionary concept, but whateve
Aislinn has always followed the rules Her Grandmother has drilled them into her since she was a young child Don t stare at invisible faeries Don t speak to invisible faeries Don t ever attract faeries attention Aislinn has developed the skill to ignore them She walks passed them without flinching even when the faeries are pinching or touching others around her like they love to do Faeries come in many shapes and sizes and Aislinn has seen them all She s seen them in the glamours they wear in order to pass as humans and can pick one out of a crowd even when they are trying to blend in Aislinn has never been surprised by what she has seen them do that is, until they start breaking the rules Faeries don t like steel It causes them pain and weakens them Because of that, Aislinn s safe place has always been Seth s house Seth is a long time friend who happens to live in a converted steel train car Aislinn always knew if she could make it there she d have peace because the faeries could never follow her into the train yard But, something has changed They are creeping closer and closer and paying attention to her They are even gathering outside Seth s place.Aislinn re

I don t even know what to say This has been the first book that I ve thrown across the room and felt extremely happy about it Needless to say, I absolutely despised it The beginning was a wonderful solid four starsand then the ending came SPOILERS Wicked Lovely is the story about a 17 year old girl who s had the Sight her entire life Aislinn lives in fear every day of attracting the attention of any faerie, only to have it all come crashing down when the Summer King, Keenan, claims her as the next Summer Queen Keenan has been searching for the one for over nine centuries, only to condemn each wrong girl to the burden of being a Winter Girl, who has to carry the awful winter chill until the next unlucky girl comes along Reasons why it sucked and yes, it sucked majorly in my opinion Seth, Aislinn s mortal friend boyfriend it takes the author a ridiculous amount of time to clear up which is way too perfect I love the ide
