Post-review: I feel like, after reading almost all of this series, now, including the in-between book that I was in no way obligated to read, I am allowed to write a letter. I feel as if we have much closer over this series. So much closer.....:

My dearest Lauren Kate; my honey-bun, my up-and-downer; my peach,

This book is about the only Valentine's day that Luce and Daniel ever had together.

They REALLY need to stop screwing with Fernanda's art!!!

Wow. What a complete waste of paper.

The last time I checked, a "novel" was more than two-hundred measly pages of huge text and lots of chapter breaks. Calling this tiny thing a "novel" is ridiculous, as is pricing it at $15.99. Luckily, I got it on sale at Target, so it wasn't too expensive, but I totally want my money back after reading it.

Fallen in love?
Fallen 3.5?
Is this a very nasty joke?
*looks at the reviews* O_O Shit.
Awesome. Just freaking awesome. Now I got to read this '3.5' book too.
God! is this just me who wants to just finish this fucking series already so I could know the end due to my big mistake of even starting reading this series? I seriously want to finish and get over with this.
Anyway, pretty cover. -.-

Okay. So maybe I knew what I was getting myself into. Just maybe. But I still gave it a try. I was sane enough to. But boy. Boy, oh, boy. The first story was incredibly idiotic. Miles and Shelby are nincompoops.


I don't know why I just did that. Anyway, Shelby is so annoying. Miles is such a wuss. All they talked about was Luce and Daniel. And it just amazes me how those two tolerate each other. I mean, I have to be pretty insane to not want to beat the crap out of them.

Pretty. Insan

To all of you people out there,
there is one thing I don't quite understand; if you have already read the other books in the series, and didn't like them, why do you really have to go and search about this book? And then, why do you have to "review" it, since it hasn't even been published yet? Even if you have no other interest in your life other than being all mean to authors and books, I suggest you keep it to yourself. You can write in your diary.

Wow... Kate couldn't just make this an eBook like any other normal author, eh? She had to get it in fucking print. It's a fucking novella, there is NO need to get it in print. Milkin' the cash cow.
Donna {Book Passion for Life}
Fallen in Love is a novel which tells the tales of Miles, Shelby, Roland, Arriane, Luce and Daniel finding love on Valentine’s Day in Medieval England. With four different stories and each one completely different from the other, it was nice to see them all come together at the end to help Daniel and Luce have their perfect Valentine’s day. I did enjoy the single stories, some more than others but I don’t think it’s something you have to read in order to continue with the series. So read it or d ...more

...unless it's a free e-book, and then only for the lulz.

I would like to answer the question, though. How romantic and heartbreaking is this? Well, it's pretty damn heartbreaking, actually.

I am just shattered that people are still gobbling this shit up.

And as for romance - it's Luce and Daniel. That's not even a question. NO, it's not romantic. She's a stalker and he's an asshole. GTFO.
There isn't much to say, except I thought it was lovely and I can't wait for Rapture. Especially after reading the excerpt...and I have to say..Oh Cam, I adore you...This HAS to be one of the best quotes ever!!!!

"Yeah about that, How is it Possible?" Shelby said. "You'd think that kind of thing would leave an impression on the old memorizer."

'Love where you least expect it'
(The valentine of Miles and Shelby) :

This story follows Miles and Shelby as they step out of an announcer and into Medieval times, or more specifically, into the middle of a Valentine's faire!

I really enjoyed this as it gave more depth into the two's relationship and saw it develop more without any distractions/life-changing missions.

*3.5 stars*

Perché quasi quattro stelle se l'intera serie mi ha fatto quasi pena? Perché questa raccolta di brevi storie é forse meglio dei primi tre libri tutti insieme.

Tralasciando lo stile di LK che non mi ha mai fatta impazzire l'idea che sta alla base delle prime tre novelle/racconti brevi é buona. La mia preferita é quella di Arianne mentre, nemmeno a farlo apposta, quella di Lucinda e Daniel l'ho trovata banalissima. Come se fosse sempre la stessa cosa ripetuta all'infinito.

I have no clue how to rate this half-books! Seriously this is published as a book, oh Dear Lord! I'll just say it surely isn't as good as first two (unfortunately) but it's a bit (but really little) better than third one (it's shorter thought)!

I wanted to jump out of my skin when I read "announcer", oh yes I still have nightmares after Passion. Luckily it's only mentioned few times, so I survived.
Basically here you have stories about Valentine's Day (now how sweet is that?). It's good because
When Fallen debuted in December 2009, I fell in love with it. It was different than a lot of other YA novels out there at the time , which made it pretty refreshing to read. When Lauren Kate came out with the third installment in the Fallen series I was just as excited to read it as I was the other two, but my excitement quickly diminished-it seemed I was no longer interested in Luce and Daniel’s story anymore. I tried and could not finish the third in the series. With Fallen in Love, I thought ...more

True Love Never Says Goodbye… Except for the reader, who reads these books with such intensity and passion that they almost want to strangle the publisher for having the nerve to offer an excerpt to the final Fallen book that they won’t be able to get their hands on for a few more months.

The Fallen series has become one of the largest and most well-known when it comes to the “winged ones” of the world, and Lauren Kate has managed to captivate and enchant all of her fans. Having this new novel t

La eternidad y un día es un spin-off de la saga Oscuros, que narra el único San Valentín que Luce y Daniel van a pasar juntos.
A pesar de que no leí la saga, me largué a leerlo porque tenía entendido que era una especie de antología de cuentos románticos. Bien, no. Es una novela corta, que si bien tiene conexión con la trama de la saga, no acontecen cosas que alteren los hechos, que tengan relevancia en la historia principal.

I don't know if it was this book or just the sudden urge to read but I read this book really quickly. Shelby and Miles' story was pretty cute, although I thought the end was a bit mushy. Roland's story was sad and had a bittersweet ending but I enjoyed reading his story. Arriane's story was quite sad and the most surprising, although I don't know why.
And then we come to Luce and Daniel...Honestly it was pretty good but I couldn't help but feel like it wasn't needed, despite it making all the oth

Love Where You Least Expect It: The Valentine of Shelby and Miles
Rating: 1 star

Alrighty, first things first, I don't care about Shelby and Miles at all. Throughout the series so far, I think their both rather flat and boring. Miles sounds like every other guy with no personality and Shelby sounds like every other chick with no personality.

Συνήθως για κάποιο λόγο αυτά τα επιπλέον βιβλία με ιστορίες έξω από την κανονική ροή των γεγονότων μιας σειράς δεν μου πολυαρέσουν,τα βρίσκω βαρετά.Θεωρώ μάλιστα ότι οι συγγραφείς τα βγάζουν πολλές φορές μόνο και μόνο για κερδοσκοπικούς σκοπούς.Δυστυχώς το συγκεκριμένο βιβλίο δεν αποτελεί εξαίρεση αφού για μένα ακόμη και σε αυτό που στόχευε δεν κατάφερε να ανταποκριθεί πλήρως.

You are kidding, right?

Seriously. I'm speechless.

The fact that Fallen have reached a high popularity, still makes me wonder sometimes. I knew there was going to be four books, and a movie too, but this?

Come on!

It's not even an e-book. It's printed. You can actually go down in your bookstore and fucking buy it. Kate, what makes you so special, that you just had to print your piece of shit "lovestories"?

May Contain Spoilers, if you actually care

Earlier this year I gave A Man Named Dave: A Story of Triumph and Forgiveness by Dave Pelzer the title of "Most Unnecessary Book Ever". I think this title needs to be divided into genres, because he still gets it for 'Memoir' but this book, Fallen In Love deserves it for 'YA Paranormal' or whatever you want to call this genre. So, I hereby give Fallen In Love the title of "Most Unnecessary YA Paranormal Book Ever."

This book adds nothing to the Fallen ser

Four short stories set on Valentine’s Day in Medieval England told from the perspective of various characters in the Fallen series. Even though the characters are all in the past, chronologically it takes place after the events of Passion.
The first story focuses on Shelby and Miles who are desperate to return to the present but accidently end up in medieval England after travelling through an announcer. Shelby and Miles bump into an older version of Luce; not surprisingly they find that
This was quite good, and better than I thought it was going to be, however there was not enough Cam in it for my liking. OK a glimpse of him naked (but from Roland’s POV) and a little cameo appearance in Daniel & Lucinda’s story. If there had been more Cam then I would have given it 4 stars but it lost 1 for lack of Cam.

Love Where You Least Expect It - The Valentine of Shelby and Miles

This is obviously the story of Shelby and Miles. They have come to medieval England to help Luce and Daniel
Although I was really happy to find that Lauren Kate was finally shifting the character focus this go around (especially after the painfully long read of the last book); giving the reader a break from the Lucy and Daniel drama, I still wouldn’t call this a riveting read.

There’s no denying that FALLEN IN LOVE is less whiny then its predecessor with a much sweeter undertone. Covering several “Valentine” tales taking place in medieval England where Miles and Shelby find themselves after they last
This book is said to be 4 short stories about Valentines day regarding different characters from Lauren Kate's Fallen series.

I suppose you can say that is what it is. It really read more like a regular story with random breaks that tell you you are now onto a new characters Valentine's Day. I think that those breaks were put in there just so there was less awkwardness with switching to a new characters perspective. Really, this book flowed as if it was a missing chapter from the last book.
