Wicked Lovely  - Melissa Marr Help me! I've gone down the YA rabbit hole...I started this one back in October(?) but got distracted by the saccharine candy goodness that was Jim Butcher's latest Harry Dresden novel, and forgot to finish the last 3 chapters. I quite liked the mythology parts of the story, but found all the stalking and demanding kind of creepy. It's got to be that YA bias, because I just don't find stories like this particularly romantic, mostly I just think “bah, teenagers.” Maybe this YA stuff just brings out my inner Clint Eastwood, because I feel like I'm sitting on my porch waving my 12-gauge at young miscreants yelling “Get off my lawn!” I guess it's time to cross back over to the Grown Up side of the library, before I start grumbling about baggy pants and turning down that horrible noise you young'uns call music.
