Fallen Angels, anyone?

As I’m sure you noticed (like you could avoid it if you tried), vampires have been it this year. The paranormal trend (in YA especially) doesn’t seem like it’s going away anytime soon. Not that I have a problem with that, there’s some pretty cool stuff out there. But I’m not the only one who’s noticed that fallen angels seem to be on the rise (ha. ha.)

Exhibit A:
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
I haven’t gotten around to reading this one yet, and from reviews I’ve read it can be rather love it or hate it.  I get the impression that Patch is rather Edward-esque – he’s either the man of your dreams, or a control freak that you should stay far, far away from.  Once my copy comes in from the library, I’ll let you know my take on it.

 

Exhibit B:

Fallen by Lauren Kate

I first saw the cover for this over the summer, and just love it.  Gorgeous.  It just came out this week (although no libraries in my system have it yet…grrrr).  Apparently Disney has optioned film rights for it already…just one more reason to be on the lookout for more angels.

 

Exhibit C:

Angel Star by Jennifer Murgia

Not crazy about the cover art on this one, but I came across it on Goodreads…from the description, it seems to fit the upcoming trend nicely.

 

 

These are just the ones I’m aware of; have you come across any others??

  1. If they write enough fantasy and paranormal books some of them are bound to be good. I’m really glad that htis trend is continuing as it means there are a lot of really interesting books coming out that I am adding to my to be read list – though that is a really long list at this stage.

  2. Mine too! For every book I read, it seems like I add at least three more to my list 🙂

  3. HUSH HUSH is amazing.
