Pointless post

OMG OMG OMG was my first reaction to seeing that there is a cast listed for the movie adaptation of Fallen.

Now, here's the thing. It wasn't a great book but it was alright. I read it at the same time I read Hush, Hush and Sojourner so bits and pieces of each kinda swirl together, since they are all ‘Angel' YA books. I'm not really sure which one I liked better and I didn't care for the sequel of any of them.

What I do remember about Fallen, other than joking with my mom about starting a drinking game for every time we read the word folded (someone needs to buy that girl a thesaurus) is that it takes place at a juvenile detention center.

To sum up... I did not LOVE this book. I didn't even like the second book but I'm (surprisingly) elated that they have a cast for the movie adaption of this book, even if I'm confused that they seem to have two actors listed for each of the main roles. idek

I have to admit, I only read Fallen because I fell in love with the cover...I thought it was ok. Like you, I didn't LOVE it. To me, it was just Twilight with angels.

However, I enjoyed the second book much more - especially since Luce grew into a stronger, more interesting heroine than Bella. I'm also a fan of angel lore, so I appreciated that aspect of the story.

Have you read the third book, or did you dislike the second so strongly that you couldn't bring yourself to pick it up?

Actually, I do have the 3rd book on my TBR list but I haven't been in a big hurry to get to it.

I picked up both Fallen and Hush, Hush because of the beautiful covers.

I thought the third book was pretty interesting, actually. Not the best written piece of literature ever to grace humanity, but I enjoyed it. I won't say why because I don't want to ruin it for you...but if you ever get around to reading it, let me know. I'd love to discuss it!
