Wicked Lovely - January 27th 2010, 07:46 AM

Okay, I am reading wicked lovely and I just want to know what your opinion is of the book.

I like it but I feel that it is missing a lot of depth. It took me so long to get invested in the characters and I feel as though I cannot see what they look like in my head.

So far it seems like a decent story and I definitely want to see what happens but idk it just isn't as good of a book as I thought it would be.

I think the author should have done a lot more character development but I am one of those people that likes to know a lot about the characters and have the plot follow. I mean, I feel without characters you can relate to/care about everything else is just moot.

This is my review of it on goodreads.com:

Wicked Lovely was... interesting. It started out fairly bland, and then got pretty good towards the middle. The end was somewhat mediocre, I lost interest and start skimming the pages. But overall, it was an enjoyable, very quick read. Some of the characters were so underdeveloped that I kept forgetting who they were when they were randomly mentioned. Marr didn't really do a good job at explaining everybody and such, and I found the characters a bit hard to follow. But other than that, it was all right. I'm hoping the sequel will be better.
So yep, I pretty much agree with you.

lol. Okay, so it isn't just me! Whew. LOL.

Yeah, Idk, I am more into seeing the characters in my mind and I just couldn't with her books. I liked the ending and all but it was way too predictable. The ending was worse than twilights and twilight was quite predictable.

I think she has a great imagination but I think now a days places are publishing paranormal books as fast as they can to get money. They are not looking at the quality.

I couldn't even pick up any messages in the book and I like books to have a message.
