Book Review #799
Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr
Rating: zero stars (out of four)
*read July 8, 2009

I really wanted to like this book because the cover was so enchanting, but when I started reading it I felt like something was off. It was kind of creepy, definitely disturbing, and eerily lacking in substantial plot. I did not like her boyfriend and I didn't see how they got along - I also thought their relationship was kind of unbalanced. The faeries were disturbing and I didn't like how they treated each other and the humans, it was unsettling. There was also language and sexual content that was inappropriate. The ending was unrealistic and I thought it was too easily wrapped up. I know there's going to be a sequel but I will not be reading it. I consider this book a waste of time. It had the beginning traces of a different and fun fantasy book but fell short on so many occasions.
