Book #31: Fallen by Lauren Kate

What if the person you were meant to be with could never be yours?

17-year-old Lucinda falls in love with a gorgeous, intelligent boy, Daniel, at her new school, the grim, foreboding Sword & Cross . . . only to find out that Daniel is a fallen angel, and that they have spent lifetimes finding and losing one another as good & evil forces plot to keep them apart. 

Get ready to fall . . .

I read Fallen with a friend for a buddy read. Apparently, this is the year of buddy reads. That said, I honestly think it could have been better.

I feel that this book wasn’t as good as it could have been. The story itself is slow and the writing is pretty simple. Not in a bad way, but… just not engaging. I did like the setting and some aspects of the story but, again, it didn’t engage me.

I can see where people like to compare this to Twilight and though it is about angels, I found myself doing the same. Unfortunately, Twilight was better for me. That said, I am going to eventually continue with the series. I hope that this is just a case where book one is just not as good as the rest.

I can’t really go into detail with what I liked or disliked because they are spoilers. That said, I’m planning on buddy reading the rest of the series with that friend.

Final Rating: 3/5
