Good Reads in May


Just one book again last month. Fallen. Another supernatural young adult fiction. This one's a bit different though, it's darker and doesn't give too much away about the supernatural aspect until you near the end. The characters are somewhat annoying at times, as many teenage characters are. i get the impression there's a lot more character development to come though. In Fallen you're kept guessing about the moral stance of the characters and who (or what) they are. This book is clearly just building the back story for the other books in the series, which i'm hoping will have a lot more plot development and action in. Fallen is slow moving and mysterious, but  in a way this kept me reading because i wanted to know what the heck was going on, so it's got suspense. Lauren does do a good job of transporting you to the school in which the story is based. Oh and it's quite cheesy, but most teen fiction tends to be, so be warned if you don't like mushy stuff. Basically, if you don't like this genre then it's probably not for you. But i did really like it and i'll be reading the rest in the series. i think it's a Marmite kind of book, you'll either love it or hate it.
