Not All Angels Fly: Strange Angels By Lili St. Crow
I think my favorite part of this book was that it reminded me of Vampire Academy and stirred up my longing for a kick-butt female lead. Dru is independent and caring in her own way. She has to deal with so many heartaches, but she keeps fighting. If that’s not inspirational I don’t know what is! She meets Grave and instantly you know that he is important from how she studies him. Then she meets Christophe, all blond, highlighted, and pretty and you think you’ve made a huge mistake. Until you realize that she is confused and you put yourself into her place and think “What would I do if faced with such temptation?” This book showed me how awesome a writer Lili is because it is one thing to write up a boy so pretty all you want to do is look into his eyes, but it is almost impossible to write a female lead so wonderful that all you have to do is read to see her character. Dru is overall one of my favorite female book idols. She is a teen girl who tries to hide from the ‘real world’ even though its no use. She never tries to be anyone else or pretend. She is just….Dru.
