I liked reading this. Liked, not loved, but not hated either. It could’ve been better (not trying to say that Nicholas is no good, his other works are better than this though). I kind of expected more from Noah. And don’t mistaken me, I haven’t even watched the movie yet so no, it has no influence on what I am writing right now. But I just thought, Noah could’ve given more effort to help Allie like what Henry Roth (50 First Dates) did for Lucy Whitmore. Maybe I’m wrong, I don’t know. But I just feel that it would have been more romantic if it was that way.

On the other hand, I did enjoy the story. It is though, more tragic than romantic for me. But, I love how each sceneries were described. And I liked how the sexy moments weren’t much vulgarly described, but still created romance. Take note that I am not a book reviewer and that I’m just merely someone who loves to read and has an opinion. I wouldn’t actually call this a review, but hey, it’s still an opinion, right?

I also have read some reviews about The Notebook a few moments earlier, and I’d have to say that it wasn’t as bad as some have described (in my opinion), but it wasn’t really that memorable.

So what did you think of it? Liked/Loved/Hated it? You can comment down below. 🙂

PS. If you haven’t read this yet, don’t get discouraged or what-not. Maybe it wasn’t just for me. So I still suggest that you go ahead and read it if you like to. 🙂

Maybe It’s Not Too Late to continue? ;)

A romance fiction from me. I started this way back December 2011. I am finally writing the second chapter for it, and I’m already halfway done writing that chapter. Hopefully I can post the second chapter tomorrow. Oh, and I also made a new cover for it.

Fallen by Lauren Kate

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Title: Fallen
Author: Lauren Kate
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy Romance
Series: Fallen #1
Next in Series: Torment
Release date: December 8, 2009
Goodreads rating: 3.75 stars (out of 5)
My Rating: 5 stars (out of 5)

Reading the first chapter of this novel made me fall in love with it fast. The characters, the setting, and how purely beautiful and descriptive the words are. Words that are simple but will really touch your senses. Just beautiful, really beautiful. The story is mainly about the love story of a fallen angel and a mortal, but this story isn’t like the typical ‘fallen angel falls in love with a human’ story. It is a love story that goes way back to the beginning of time. As you go deeper into the story, you will uncover interesting and unpredictable twists. And as the mysteries unfold, you’ll find yourself hooked to the story and you’d hardly want to put the book down and stop reading.

There is also an Official Fallen Novels website, you can read here about the characters and things about them. But if you haven’t read the book yet, I don’t recommend you to do that because it might spoil the suspense when a new character is introduced in a chapter. I myself only read the character descriptions once I was done reading the second book. Read at your own risk! 😉

For questions, suggestions on what book I should read next, or any reaction; comment below. 🙂 If you have already read Fallen and you want to submit your very own review of the story, please do so in the comments below.
