Teen Book Club April - Wicked Lovely

The Teen Book Club met tonight to discuss Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr.

Seventeen-year-old Aislinn, who has the rare ability to see faeries, is drawn against her will into a centuries-old battle between the Summer King and Winter Queen, and the survival of her life, her love, and summer all hang in the balance.
Here are the discussion questions we used:

  1. What did you think of the book?  General thoughts?
  2. Did you have a favorite character?  Favorite scene or part?
  3. How did Donia feel about Keenan?  What makes her feel that way?
  4. How does Aislinn feel about her grandmother's way of dealing with the faeries?  Does Ash follow her example?  If she had chosen different, how might things have turned out differently?
  5. How does Keenan feel about Seth?  What does he do about him, and why?
  6. With such a terrible risk attached to it, why would any of Keenan's chosen girls choose to take up the staff?  What made his Summer Girls refuse?  Do you think you would have done it?
  7. What do you think will happen in the future for Keenan, Donia, Ash, and Seth?
  8. What did you think of the portrayal of faeries in this book?
  9. What did you think of the writing style?
  10. Ratings and final thoughts!
Here are our ratings!

Melanie - 6/10 - The beginning was slow going, but the plot line was very interesting.
Catherine - 6.5/10 - A little slow, but a fun read.
MissG - 7.5/10 - A modern fairy story with classic elements, vivid descriptions, and memorable characters.

For May we are reading...
