For my blind date book i had ‘Wicked Lovely’. It was about a girl named Aislinn, and her social struggles throughout high school. Her experience is a little different because she has to deal with her ability to see fairies. The book definitely caught my attention within the first few chapters. Aislinn must follow these three rules or else she’ll lose her freedom, her best friend, Seth, or her life. I found it interesting to see how a high school student coped with mythical creatures like fairies walking amongst her high school. Melissa Marr did a nice job of making the reader feel the main character’s skepticism and controversy in certain situations. She also mixed old ancient mythical rules with modern high school situations. The book was very suspenseful because it left big choices and life decisions up to a teenage girl. I usually don’t like fiction books because I like reading about real life situations but ‘Wicked Lovely’ had some relatable parts that caught my attention. The author jumps right into the story from the beginning, she doesn’t add much background story. This made me curious and want to keep reading to find answers. On the contrary, even though the book had interesting parts, I thought the story line was a little drawn out with possibly too much detail included. Aside from the overdose of detail, I think ‘Wicked Lovely’ is a lovely attention capturing fictional book.
