by Lauren Kate

Though I dread the flight from L.A. to New York, it is inevitable that I make the trip at least twice a year. (And hopefully after a book deal it would be more! Insert wishful thinking.) The good thing about being an avid reader is that I read a (good) book in about five hours, which fits in perfectly with the airtime. This latest trip the book of choice was Lauren Kate’s Fallen, mainly because I had heard Kate’s name over and over again and the last book, Rapture, has just been released.
Obviously the fact that I read it in five hours means I liked it enough to well…read it in five hours. The characters well developed and stand out on their own which is considerably harder with so many active characters (I’d consider eight active characters through the book). It isn’t an action book by a long shot, but gives you just a tidbit of information at a time to make you want to answer the brand new question Kate just threw at you.
