Alright, so this book wasn't crap. It wasn't Twilight or one of those ripoff stalkerish YA novels filling the shelves these days. It just wasn't that enjoyable and could have been done a lot better.
In short: Lots of people think this book is awesome. I think different.

When 23 year old Sister Evangeline of the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration in upstate New York discovers a letter dated 1943 from Abigail Rockefeller, the famed philanthropist, to the late mother superior of Saint Rose Convent, she uncovers a millennia-old war between the Society of Angelologists and the Nephilim (descendants of fallen angels). As Evangeline shares her discovery with angeologists, she assists them in their efforts to halt the Nephilim from overpowering humankind.

I wasn't sucked in by the blurb at all, to be honest, but since it was recommended to me and the reviews were glowing, I figured I'd look at this book from the 'I'm reading quality literature!' perspective. However, I just couldn't enjoy it and soon put the book down (not before reading the oh-so-shocking ending, of course. Meh. I'd guessed the twist from just the first ten chapters.)

 

ANGELOLOGY by DANIELLE TRUSSONI )

In short...I'm unimpressed and gave up shortly after Chapter 10.
