Look at that cheesey cover.

This is one of those books that's good to read when you just want something easy that you don't have to think about. It's super quick. I think it's supposed to be emotional, but the characters are very hard to get to know.

There was A TON of build up for Tristan and Ivy to get together, but once they did.... BAM! There fun was over before it really began.

Kitabı okurken yas tutma anlarında ağlamama engel olamadım (Fazla değil bir ikiş göz yaşı). Kitap çok romantikti. Hoşlandım.Çok şey beklenmeden okunabilecek bir kitap. Bundan sonra neler olacak merak ediyorum. Kitap dediğim gibi çok romantik ve durgun yerleri var ve sıkıcı olmaya başlıyor. Biraz daha aksiyonla kendine bağlatabilir.

Ivy ve Trishian birbirlerinden hoşlanmaktadır ama açılamazlar Ivy'nin kedisi'nin yeni bir eve gitmesi gerekmekte
I must be in a literary famine. Of the four books I've tried to read this month, only ONE was even worth finishing.

This book is not one of them. So to anyone looking for a fair review, this isn't it. I could not waste any more of what brain cells I had left chewing on this ridiculous tween-age warped fantasy of what high school love MIGHT be like.

Let me put it this way: Twilight made more sense and had more logic. And that's huge.

I like angels. I thought a high school girl falling in love with
Lo sapevo, lo sapevo, LO SAPEVO!!!
Dopo aver letto il prologo sapevo che avrei versato un sacco di lacrime prima o poi...
Mi ero detta che non era possibile, che in qualche modo il prologo si sarebbe spigato con un incubo di uno dei protagonisti o qualche altra trovata che mi avrebbe fatto tirare un sospiro di sollievo e invece...

Lo sapevo, eppure non mi sono data pervinta e ho continuato a leggere.
E così ho conosciuto Ivy una regazza semplice, di buon cuore, che credeva fortemente negli angeli
¿Porque me meto a leer estos libros? ¿porqueeeee?
Ohhh que cruel, eran tan lindos juntos, y el ahora muerto.... y ella sin creer en los ángeles!
Porque será que la vida nos da tanto y de golpe decide que ya no es nuestro momento de seguir? Nos cuenta tanto conseguir las cosas en la vida, y para que? para que en pleno auge de felicidad nos lo quiten? De verdad, son cosas que no entiendo....
Me duele ver a Tristan tratando de alcanzar a Ivy, pero al final ambos saben que no van a poder estar juntos
I can't say it's a bad book exactly, but I can't say it's on my top10 either. The writing is sometimes a little dull, with overly dramatic comparisons that intend to be romantic but end up being boring and plain weird. With that being said, most characters are extremely uninteresting, the main couple included. In fact, the only characters that sounded somewhat promising were Gregory and Lacey. The plot unfolds predictably and it doesn't help that the version I read was horribly translated.
This is book is one of the best books I have read all year. Right now i am where Tristion is trying to find out what his mission is ... right now he thinks it is to convince Ivy that he loves her ... but by my opinion she already knows. I find it very sad how he died in the begging. I wanted to cry ... at some times you might get a little confused but you will figure it out later ... in my minded I see Tristion as the hunky (or chunky as Ivy’s boss would say messing up but all ways fixing her se ...more

"O amor termina com a morte"
Eu li o livro há alguns anos, mas resolvi reler e compartilhar minha opinião sobre ele com vocês.

O livro começa em uma plena cena de amasso no banco de trás do carro, com direito a muitas declarações e beijinhos entre Tristan, o nadador campeão do colégio, e Ivy, a inocente( ou devo dizer indiferente?) jovem pianista e a protagonista da história. Depois , somos levados para uma agitada cena de acidente de carro, que não sabemos o resultado até o final do livro, pois
I was quite disappointed with the book to say the least. There wasn't any real action. They dated and kissed, they swam in a pool a couple of time together, they fought once and then the dude died (p.s It ain't a spoiler because we know it from the beginning). Okay, so then what? The next few 100 something pages are a load of crap. It's boring; nothing happens that is exciting up until the book almost ends. Like really? The plot of the story starts at the freaking end of the book. I should of re ...more
Cute and sweet. Pretty light for a book about angels and death.

I thought it was cute but the writing seemed pretty light and young. I'm interested to see if it changes as you get farther in the series.

Linda, facil de leer... me dejo al borde de las lagrimas. Perder a la persona qe amas debe ser la cosa mas dificil...
Very sweet love story that was pretty compelling
More like a 3.5. THAT ending. God.
Un livre assez simple mais surtout émouvant et vraiment prenant.
Même si l’on connait dès le début la fin tragique de cette histoire, l’amour qui naît entre Ivy et Tristan est véritable et l’on redoute tout du long d’arriver au moment fatidique. J’y suis allée de la larme et du sourire plus d’une fois. On se sent proche de ces personnages et de leur histoire qui sonne très réelle. L’action se déroule avec fluidité sans devenir simplette pour autant.
Au delà de ça, un danger rôde et j’espère vraime

This is the first book in Mary Claire Helldorfer’s Kissed by an Angel series written under her pseudo name, Elizabeth Chandler.

Ivy just moved to a new town and hangs out with her two best friends, Suzanne and Beth. Her mother marries a wealthy man and they move into his big expensive house and now she has a new brother, one of the popular guys at school, Gregory, who Suzanne has a huge crush on.

Beth and Suzanne are convinced that the star of the school’s swim
What an ending! This book was recommending for me to read, and I'm so glad they did!

Tristan was killed in a car accident and turned into a guardian angel for his girlfriend Ivy who used to believe in angels. The first book is mostly about their blooming relationship before he dies.

There's more going on though. Gregory's, Ivy's step-brother, mother committed suicide. Or did she? Tristan's death may not have been an accident but he wasn't the one who was supposed to die. And there's a strange man
I loved the premise of this book and the idea that Tristan is so in love with Ivy that he comes back after his death to be her angel. She, however, has quit believing in angels since Tristan's death.

It might just be me, but I read the blurb and it talked about how Tristan's car accident was not an accident after all, and he was on the hunt to find his killer, or perhaps the person who had tried to kill Ivy. However, I kept waiting the entire book for him to realize that but it only happened on t
I can't decide if the way this book was written was amateurish or if that was just the style of teen books in the 90's. Either way, even though this book is enjoyable, it's a little too simplistic for my adult taste.
The story is a little like the movie Ghost- the boyfriend dies, except this time it's the girlfriend who can't say 'I love you'. The boyfriend becomes an angel and is now trying to find out what mission he has to accomplish before he can move on to eternity. A very interesting premi

Recensione pubblicata su Cronache di Betelgeuse

Una storia molto romantica ed emozionante, che coinvolge il lettore nella struggente storia d’amore tra i due protagonisti. I due ragazzi sembrano così diversi, con le frizioni iniziali che sembrano un valico insormontabile, ma che servono a rendere più dolce l’unione finale. L’autrice lascia però presagire che all’orizzonte si sta per profilare un evento disastroso. Questo è il primo problema della trama, poiché ripresenta più volte la stessa scena

Ainda não conhecia nenhum livro dessa autora. Elizabeth Chandler.
Fiquei deveras surpreendida pelo estilo de escrita dela. É um tipo de escrita leve e fácil de se ler. Só não acabei o livro mais rapidamente porque não tive tempo mesmo.

Beijada por um Anjo é o primeiro livro da Saga "Beijada Por Um Anjo" composta por cinco volumes.

Trata-se da história de um casal de jovens estudantes. Tristan e Ivy.

(...) Ce roman m'a vraiment déplu et déçue. Même en ayant lu les critiques, qui m'avaient préparée à une histoire d'amour émouvante, attachante et fleur bleue, Tristan et Ivy manquent cruellement de crédibilité autant en tant que personnages qu'amoureux transits. D'un côté, il y a le "beau gosse" -- pour citer Lillian -- adulé de tous, courtisé par toutes les lycéennes, champion de natation et qui manque pourtant autant d'assurance que le rat de bibliothèque geek et joueur d'échecs à ses heures ...more
ma si finisce così un libro? noooooooooooo

mi aspettavo ben altro e invece la Chandler mi ha stupito.

attenzione spoiler pazzesco!!!! non leggete se nn volete rovinarvi il libro.

I was drawn to the book by the humor in it. Tristan's character is simply adorable. The description on the paperback says something about him and Ivy being stunning and beautiful, but I was glad to find that it was not centered around the beauty. I loved Tristan's way with children, his gentle approach to Ivy, his pure care for her. Ivy was a little bit unknown to me. It was as if one moment she did not care much for Tristan, and the next, she was in. It felt abrupt, as if Ms Chandler realized s ...more
