Throwback Thursday Review: When Angels Fall by Stephanie Jackson

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA Is it Thursday again?!  Short week really threw me off.  So here we are again another addition to my weekly blog meme where I share with you all one of my pre-blog reviews.  This week I tried something a little different.  I have written 264 reviews and decided to use random.org to pick which one to share with you.  If it gave me a number/book of  a title I have already shared with you I was going to draw again.  Luckily it picked #61 a title I have not shared before.  I thought this a clever, alright lazy, way to pick a book, especially since I was uninspired as to what to share.   When Angels Fall

I was given this book for an honest review.

2 stars and read from 9/21-26/2012

Book Synopsis from Goodreads:

Danielle Coulter had never believed in anything except her mother, hard work and heartache. She never had time for religious fairytales. But when her mother died, Dani was forced to believe…or die. Not only was she forced to accept that God and Lucifer are real, but also that she is the last living descent of God on Earth. An undeniable fact when the Archangel Gabriel fell to Earth to protect her.  Archangel Gabriel; banished from Heaven over four million years ago for refusing to kill his brother, Lucifer, was about to get a second chance to re-enter Heaven. He was sent to Earth on a mission from his Father to protect the last Daughter of God; the last woman to carry the Blood of God on Earth, and kill his brother, once and for all. Gabriel had never expected to feel anything for Dani, but he soon found himself willing to fight Heaven and Hell to keep her safe, even if it meant his own destruction

My review:

I was given this book for an honest review. Sorry but this book just didn’t work for me. Could be the crappy week I had or the fact that I just read another book that I enjoyed so much more, but this one was a struggle to get into and just didn’t work for me. The idea has potential and obviously there are others that did enjoy the book, so at the price it is listed for don’t let me stop you from giving it a shot. Here are the main problems I had with it. I was given a Kindle version so I had to read it on my computer, wish there was a Nook or Smashwords version, but this isn’t really a problem with the book. The dialog felt juvenile at times or just off. The overuse of italics was annoying and disrupted my reading flow. It wasn’t the worst book I’ve read, but I found myself constantly struggling to stay focused on the story. There wasn’t I character that I cared enough about to move the story along for me. Despite my opinion of the book, I wish the author good luck and I hope the story does well for her and finds a niche in the reading community
