Read from January 20 to 24, 2011

Severely disappointed, to say the least. Will update later.

Ok, finally I will update this particular review. First, I can't believe I even gave it 2 stars. Let me preface this by saying that I'm not the world's best book critic or reviewer, and I'm ok with that. Most of the time, I'm easy to please and there's rarely a book I truly dislike. I had assumed that there couldn't be a book I'd dislike more than the Vampire Kisses series.

I stand corrected.

An easy way to gauge how much I like a book is the speed in which I read it. If it's good, I won't sleep and marathon read until finished. How long did it take me to read this? OVER 2 WEEKS. That might as well be a year in my case. Honestly, if I wasn't so OCD about finishing every book I start, I would have thrown this in the trash. Bethany was so whiny and helpless for a supposed 'heavenly creature.' I couldn't stand her from the beginning. And while I'm a romantic, the love story between B and Xavier made me want to vomit and simultaneously claw my eyes out. Codependent much? It felt like this book would.never.end.

I know there's a lot of conflicting opinions on the whole Angel thing in YA books, but I've very much enjoyed books like Fallen, Hush Hush, etc. Halo, however, is the most sorry excuse for book, much less one that has to do with angels. The entire book, I kept thinking "what's the f*cking point already??" I found zero enjoyment in any of it and I strongly urge anyone not to waste their time or money on it.

/End of bitch fest

May we never speak of this book again.

I didn't read this, nor will I. My patience with angels are limited in Paranormal books.
