My Friday Find #5: Faery Tales & Nightmares by Melissa Marr

Hi again! I have a late Friday Find to share :) 
Well, this isn't exactly a "find" because I've seen it around the 
blog-osphere for a couple of weeks now,
but I just love what I've heard about it!

Faery Tales and Nightmares by Melissa Marr 

From BN.com: 
"Dangerous promises and beguiling threats swirl together in a dozen stories of enchantments, dark and light, by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Marr. Uncanny and unexpected creatures appear from behind bushes, rise from under the seas, or manifest from seasonal storms to pursue the objects of their attention—with amorous or sinister intent—relentlessly.
From the gentle tones of a story-teller’s cadences to the terror of a blood sacrifice, tales of favorite characters from Marr’s Wicked Lovely novels mix with accounts of new characters for readers to fall in love with . . . 
or to fear.
Lush, seductive, and chilling, Melissa Marr’s stories revel in the unseen magic that infuses the world as we know it."

Current Table of Contents - Short Stories (from Goodreads): 
"Where Nightmares Walk" "Winter's Kiss" (Fairy Tales) 
"Transition" (Vampires) 
"Love Struck" (Selchies) 
"Stopping Time" (WL World) 
"Old Habits" (WL World) 
"The Art of Waiting" 
"Flesh for Comfort" 
"The Sleeping Girl and the Sumer King" (WL World-ish, the short story that started the series) 
"Cotton Candy Skies" (WL World) 
"Unexpected Family" (WL World) 
"Merely Mortal" (WL World)

AND, you can Browse Inside Faery Tales & Nightmares by Melissa Marr!!!

I'm guessing that "WL World" is referring to Marr's Wicked Lovely series, which I'm sad to say, I have not started reading yet! and I'm guessing that I will have to read them before I can read this one... and before you try to throw something at me, I have good reasons!!! 
My sister found books 3 and 4 super cheap and gifted them to me a few months ago, and I just recently bought myself book 1, yay! but I didn't want to start it until I can get my hands on book 2 too, lol! {hint, hint!} 
So even though I won't be able to read Faery Tales and Nightmares any time soon, I SO desperately want to! and will, as soon as I get those others out of the way ;) 

What is on your TBR that you want to read right NOW???
