Flashback Friday is a meme hosted by our friends at Fiction Fare and Swoony Boys Podcast. The Objective - Pick a book... any book that meets the following criteria:
1. Must have been published at least 2 years ago or
2. Preferably is still in print or available to read
Because I am so behind (and lame) and didn't ask anyone else for their Flashback input, I will just be posting my (Lori) choices.
This book has been sitting on my to-read shelf since November of 2011, when I first started adding books on Goodreads. It's been sitting on my physical bookshelf since September 2013. This book definitely needs to be read soon.
Wicked Lovely (Wicked Lovely #1) by Melissa Marr
Hardcover, 1st Edition, 328 pages
Published June 12th 2007 by HarperTeen
Rule #3: Don't stare at invisible faeries. Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in the mortal world. Aislinn fears their cruelty - especially if they learn of her Sight - and wishes she were as blind to their presence as other teens.
Rule #2: Don't speak to invisible faeries. Now faeries are stalking her. One of them, Keenan, who is equal parts terrifying and alluring, is trying to talk to her, asking questions Aislinn is afraid to answer.
Rule #1: Don't ever attract their attention. But it's too late. Keenan is the Summer King, who has sought his queen for nine centuries. Without her, summer itself will perish. He is determined that Aislinn will become the Summer Queen at any cost — regardless of her plans or desires.
Suddenly none of the rules that have kept Aislinn safe are working anymore, and everything is on the line: her freedom; her best friend, Seth; her life; everything.
Faery intrigue, mortal love, and the clash of ancient rules and modern expectations swirl together in Melissa Marr's stunning twenty-first-century faery tale.
BIO STUFF: I write books. I read books. That's all you need to know. The books matter, NOT the author.
