Rule #1:

Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in the mortal 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;
Faery intrigue, mortal love, and the clash of the ancient rules and modern expectations swirl together in Melissa Marr's stunning twenty-first century faery tale.

I put off reading 'Wicked Lovely' for a long time. I was skeptical because I had heard so many mixed things about it. People saying they loved it and people who hated it. Luckily for me, I loved it! I don't see how you couldn't. 'Wicked Lovely' is my first fairy book and it did not disappoint. It was sinfully good, and irresistible. I would have read it all in one sitting if life hadn't gotten in the way. I don't know why I always put off reading certain books but when I do, they are usually the ones I love most.

'Wicked Lovely' tells many different stories. Those being: Aislinn, Keenan, Donia, and Beira. I apologize if I missed anyone there. There's a long list of view points. Aislinn is a mortal girl who is no strangers to faeries or the absurdity of faery tales. She is one of very few unique humans born with the gift of Sight. As was her mother and her Grams. Aislinn finds herself thrust into a world of danger and excitement when she catches the eye of the King of the Summer Court. Broken down, Aislinn is one of hundreds who will partake in a test to see if she is the Summer Queen. She is supposed to love the soon-to-be King but finds herself in a bizarre love triangle when she can't suppress her love for long time friend, Seth.

There are so many amazing qualities about this book. I'm very anxious to dive into the rest of the series and see what happens with Aislinn, Seth, and Keenan. Not only is the storyline completely captivating, but it has one of the most beautiful covers I've seen to date. I'm also happy that I got a copy of 'Wicked Lovely' with extras inside. In the back of the book is a play list for each significant section in the story. As well as an author interview, six intriguing facts about Melissa Marr (Which I loved), and her reading list. Great book, even better with the extras! If you haven't had a chance to read it yet, I suggest that you do! It's amazing!


  1. I loved this book too, I'm glad you like it!

    I wasn't crazy about Ink Exchange or Radiant Shadows, but I loved Fragile Eternity.

    Do you know what court you would be in if you could? I want to be in the High Court.

  2. I did enjoy this one as well. Ink Exchange was pretty good, it just had a different MC as did Radiant Shadows. These two didn't have Ash as the MC so it's probably why some people didn't like it as much.

    I thought they were okay, it was just hard to see how they connected back to Ash and those first characters. But I guess there wasn't meant to be a connection, just that they're characters in the same world, like Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series.

  3. I got wrapped up in this book while reading but afterward it didn't do too much for me, although I did get the second book just to see what happened.

  4. I tried this book but wasn't able to get into it. I am definitely going to try it again though! Thanks!

  5. I'm glad you liked this one.
    I have to admit that I didn't like Wicked Lovely as much as I expected, but after reading Ink Exchange I am happy that I didn't give up on this series. Definitely going to continue!

    Thanks for sharing your opinion with us. :)
