I'm just a girl who loves reading more than life itself. A day without a book is a day gone wrong, in my opinion :) Looking forward to meeting new people, talking to them about books and spreading the bookish love!

Immortal City  - Scott Speer Wow. Okay--breath in, breath out.Before ReadingI was a bit skeptical before reading this book. Mostly because I’d had some major late-downs with book lately (such as Switched), and partly because I don’t think I ever read an angel book that blew my mind away. So I entered the read…wary, unsure of what I was going to find, and mostly encouraged by the fact it was a group read on Goodreads.Well, I said this once and I’ll say this again – Thank GOD for Goodreads group reads! (And that is still one of the funniest sentences ever).The PlotIs very unique. You don’t expect it to be, with all the supernatural boy falls for normal girl scenario, but it is.It is set in our time, but with one difference; Angels “came out of the closet” years ago and are now saving people—for money. The rich have their own Guardian Angel, saving them from any unnatural death. And the poor… well, as it often is – they’re left to run the natural course of things. And in this case - left to die.If you’ve no money – you have no angel. Simple as that.And all of “us”, the normal people, watch the angels—the gorgeous, beautiful angels—with starstruck eyes, watching their every movement, dreaming that one day we’ll win a contest and have our own angel, be thrown into the angel superstar life.Then we have our characters – normal Maddy, a waitress in her uncle’s diner, one of the poor, and about the only person in her school not interested in the angels.And Jackson – the superstar angel about to become the youngest Guardian angel ever.And then there is the horrifying murder investigation surrounding them – the murders of angels, who are impossible to kill – unless by another angel.This turned out to be very unique, for the most part. It felt like something new and different than I read so far, even if the romance was pretty standard.I also really liked the fact this book put inside it an issue of superstar falling for normal girl, among other things. It really showed the difference between the two worlds, and the problems.To read the rest of the review go to my blog Drugs Called Books
