I follow Melissa Marr on Twitter, mainly because a few weeks ago Neil Gaiman said everyone should, and the world should obey him. Once I’d been following her for a little while, I decided that her tweets were interesting enough to merit a trip to the library to read some of her books. I picked up two: Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange, and although they are books for teenagers, which is something I no longer am, I thought they were pretty damn cool. I haven’t bought into this whole vampire obsession, nor did I buy into the Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings ones, but Melissa Marr deserves some recognition. For one thing, she can actually write. I wanted to know what was going to happen next. For another thing, she’s done some research; read some Real Books About Stuff. I like her a lot. Give her books a go, even if you’re a non-teen.

And while you’re at it, watch this video about what you want to be when you grow up. I’m not sure ‘a fairy’ counts as a genuine answer, though it really should…
