Fallen Series by Lauren Kate

I purchased these books a long time ago. I never really had much time to read them. I haven't read many books about angels, although some I have read were really interesting to me.

Fallen (Book 1)
There’s something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.

Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah. He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.

Even Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce – he goes out of his way to make that very clear. But she can’t let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, Luce has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret...even if it kills her.

Luce is sent to a reform boarding school and she meets Daniel a fallen angel. Half the time during the book the author was giving the backstory, and follows way too many cliches. and too many usages of plot keys ruin the story, it wasn't even much of a love story. It's the jerk boy who is in love with a shallow girl doesn't that sound familiar. I think Hush, Hush will better suited for me. This is what I get for reading books that are overly hyped up.  
This book series is one of the New York Times bestsellers. While reading the first book in the series, Fallen, the description of Daniel made me feel like I was reading Twilight all over again he reminds me way too much of Edward. There are some YA paranormal romance books that read too similar to Twilight, but Daniel's was indeed almost identical. If you like books about angels you'll like this one if you don't mind it's similarities to Twilight. The book starts off really really really slow. It took me about two months just to read it. The story line doesn't even begin to get good until you get to the middle of the book.
