You think that’s something? You can also get every single word of Melissa Marr’s Wicked Lovely. Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in mortal world. Aislinn fears their cruelty—especially if they learn of her Sight—and wishes she were as blind to their presence as other teens. In case you didn’t know, Wicked Lovely is one of the 2009-2010 Georgia Peach Book Award nominees. Don’t be mad at me if you sit around and wait. I don’t know how long this will last; I just know it’s available now, and it’s for a limited time. Oh. And you can also get these cool widgets to post on your social networking site, blog, or other website. You’ve just got to discover HarperTeen!
