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.


Tristan dies. He is an angel, still in love with Ivy. He has a mission, only he doesn't know what it i

I almost liked this book until the eleventh chapter, but after that... I cried like a baby. I felt so bad for Tristan, that cute, charming boy didn't deserve die so fast. Besides that I didn't liked this story much. It was quite boring and nothing special actually happened. As always, I'm not saying that this books is bad or not worth of time. I would never say that about any book. I just didn't liked it and that is only my opinion ;)

Reading Challenge #20: A book at the bottom of your to-read list

Even though I absolutely love angel books, I didn't go into reading this with much thought. It's an older book so I wasn't really expecting to be blown away. (Not saying that older books aren't well written, it's just that times are different and writing styles and techniques have improved since then)
In short, I enjoyed this book for what it's worth. This book didn't have complex characters and the plot was pretty average (but more

¿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

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

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
Jul 15, 2011 G rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
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.

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.

Эта книга... у меня просто слов нет.
Она невероятно маленькая (на чтение ушло чуть больше часа), но она просто великолепная!
Я смеялась, я ревела, я надеялась... Все за один единственный час.
Книги о счастливой жизни людей, в которых знаешь, что у них будет совсем не счастливый конец, - моя слабость. Для меня нет ничего лучше.
В ней довольно много героев и почти все мне невероятно сильно нравятся.
И, похоже, больше всех мне нравится таинственный "злодей".

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.

J’avais reçu ce livre en cadeau lors de la dédicace de Cate Tiernan et Maggie Stiefvater au Virgin et je l’avais mis de côté, ayant beaucoup d’autres lectures plus intéressantes à mes yeux. Mais suite à la lecture commune sur le forum de Lire ou Mourir, je l’ai ressorti de sa cachette (ouais, vu l’aspect de la PAL, on peut dire ça) et ait commencé à le lire très rapidement le soir même (bah oui, je l’ai commencé la veille au soir, du jour où l’on allait discuter du livre) et je l’ai donc terminé ...more

This book was... not bad. I actually really enjoyed it. A lot of surprises and it kept me happy!! That's why I moved on to the second book in the series. Ivy's character lacked in development and continued to make bad choices and not learning from lessons that a normal person would. Granted, I still read all the way through the second book and still sort of liked it. Then... The third book. I stopped half-way through. I wish I didn't have to, but the character development wasn't there for me. It ...more

Ivy is a high school age girl who has a fear of water and no interest in dating until a handsome swimmer named Tristan offers to help her learn to swim and be in water; when Tristan dies in a car crash with a deer, he comes back as an angel and determines that his mission in order to move on from this world is to save Ivy from meeting his same fate: death.

Great teen romance. Engrossing and easy too read. I did find some grammatically errors in my paperback cover, though. Made me want a romance of my own!

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

Tristan er forelsket i Ivy, så forelsket at han vil gøre sig selv fuldstændig til grin, blot hun vil kigge i hans retning og erkende at han lever. Selvom Tristan er en flot muskuløs fyr - han er svømmer på skoleholdet - er han alligevel fortabt når det kommer til Ivy.

Ivy ved skam udmærket godt at Tristan findes, men hun er for genert til at sige noget til ham. Da Tristan serverer til Ivys mors bryllup og går sig selv til grin for at få hendes lillebror til at grine, begynder hun dog så små at fo

Nie spodziewałam się tak świetnej książki. Wypożyczyłam "Pocałunek anioła" z myślą, że to kolejny klasyczny paranormal romance, gdzie dziewczyna sobie chodzi do szkoły i tam spotyka chłopaka, który ma "tę" tajemnicę i nie może jej o tym powiedzieć, bo jest na ziemi pod przykrywką. Taki psikus mnie spotkał, że książka jest właściwie obyczajówką, a wątek paranormalny pojawia się pod sam koniec.

Poznajemy nastoletnią Ivy, która ma fioła na punkcie aniołów i zbiera małe figurki z ich podobizną wierzą

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.
