Graveminder by Melissa Marr

19 October 2011 Jackie 2

I’m a huge fan of Melissa Marr’s Wicked Lovely series, so I was equally excited to read her new adult novel, Graveminder. Sadly, after reading it, I can’t say I’m still excited. The New York Times bestselling author of the Wicked Lovely series delivers her first novel for adults, a […]

Look Who’s Going to RT: Melissa Marr

22 April 2010 Jackie 0

Can you introduce yourself to my readers a little?
I write the Wicked Lovely series which is a folklore-based series of books about traditional Celtic faeries and the humans who encounter them in the modern world. The 1st book, Wicked Lovely, received the RITA for YA from Romance Writers of America, was on the recommended reading list for SFF in Locus, and was re-issued in Germany as an adult novel last year. So, I’m not really sure what my genre is. The 4th book in the series, Radiant Shadows, releases the 20th—the week of RT. In addition to these, I wrote a 3 volume manga series in this world and a variety of short stories. My first adult book, Graveminder, releases in 2011, but I’m not really sure what the genre of it is either. I’m currently just calling everything I write “fiction” or “stories” to avoid figuring out a label.

Wicked Lovely by M. Marr

5 October 2008 Jackie 6

It’s been an odd couple of weeks. For some reason, i just haven’t been able to get into any of the books I have been reading and I really needed something. After all the praise I kept hearing for Melissa Marr’s Wickedly Lovely, I decided to pick it up since […]
