Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr
Published by Harper Teen on May 1, 2008
All teenagers have problems, but few of them can match those of Aislinn, who has the power to see faeries. Quite understandably, she wishes that she could share her friends' obliviousness and tries hard to avoid these invisible intruders. But one faery in particular refuses to leave her alone. Keenan the Summer King is convinced beyond all reasoning that Aislinn is the queen he has been seeking for nine centuries. What's a 21st-century girl to do when she's stalked by a suitor nobody else can see?
My thoughts: Hm, truthfully, I could take it or leave it. I started it about three weeks ago and I had to force myself to finish it last night, when I was about 3/4 done. I wanted to love this book. Honestly. But the book just didn't cut if for me. I felt like the book was predictable--I figured out what was going to happen a few chapters in and the chapters between didn't change that outcome.
There is a great twist in the end that was a redeeming factor. I will eventually pick up the the second book in the series because of that aspect of the book. I also think the series has great world-building potential, but there wasn't enough of a good plot to grab my attention.
Maybe I read this too soon after The Iron Fey series? Haughty prince? Chosen princess? Rings a bell :)
