Wicked good

So I'm dusting off this poor lovely blog. I've read a handful of books, but did not post them. The first book I read was Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr.

Categorized in the YA section, its not a bad book. It deals with faeries and demons, love, and lose. I'm sure that young teens can feel what the main character feels for the depth of love is not that deep.

Aislinn has always seen the faeries - but told by her grandmother never to look directly at them and never to speak to them. Growing up she has never broken her grandmother's rules - ever, until one night. Keenan the Summer King approaches her - something the faeries never did and asks her on a date. That is the catalyst that will change her world forever. She now has to fight for her life, and the life of her human friend Seth, who's late announced love put a 'love triangle' twist to this book.

I became a little frustrated being inside Aislinn's thoughts when Seth was mentioned. The way she became so sap it frustrated me. It was like Stephanie Meyer and Twilight - in the sense it was almost sufficational love. At the mere thought of Seth she gets all gooey eyed and timid. psh. I did like the fast pace of the book - and how the Winter Girl stood up to the reached Winter Queen.

This is the first in its series.

The Series:

1) Wicked Lovely
2) Ink Exchange
3)Fragile Eternity

I'm trying to get my blogs short and sweet so bare with me as I try different writting styles :P

That's funny about Aislinn's gooey Seth thoughts, teehee. I will be curious to see what you think of the sequel, which centers on a completely different character (although Aislinn does make an appearance). I'm looking forward to reading Fragile Eternity!

Suffocational love - that's a great way to describe Twilight!
