(96) Fallen by Lauren Kate

Apparently, Angels ARE the new Vampires. The latest teen book to hit the shelves is Fallen by Lauren Kate.

Seventeen year old Luce (short for Lucinda) is sent to a reform school after a judge is convinced that she had something to do with the death of her date, who had burst into flames.

Sword & Cross is an interesting reform school, to put it mildly. The school is located in an old historic mansion that dates back to the Civil War era. And the kids are required to dress all in black.

Luce struggles to fit in and finds herself being drawn into the little cliques and dramas that happen in every school across the nation, but what she does not realize is that at Sword & Cross, the stakes are much higher. Time and time again she finds herself turning to Daniel. She knows there is something different about Daniel, but she can not figure out exactly what.

Will she be able to piece it all together before it is too late?

Fallen is the second book this year that I have read about Angels. I had a hard time staying focused on Fallen. I suspect that it has more to do with everything going on in my life, rather than the plot of the book. But, if you had to choose between Hush, Hush and Fallen I would go with Hush, Hush. I just enjoyed it more. It held my interest a little better. Both were okay reads, but neither are going to make the "Best of 2009" list.

I wondered about Fallen when I saw it in the store. I did really enjoy Hush Hush though.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
