Unearthly Review

Realease date: January 4th 2011
Publisher: HarperTeen
Author: Cynthia Hand

Unearthly follows Clara, a girl who’s part angel and part human. She keeps having a vision of saving a boy, Christian, from a forest fire. That vision is her “purpose”. Clara moves from sunny California to wintery Wyoming to fulfill her vision. But then things start to go awry when she realizes that she’s falling in love with Tucker.

Unearthly was a lot different from the other angel books I’ve read. And by different, I mean different in a good way.

Clara is a great protagonist! She interesting, funny and quirky. In the beginning of the book I didn’t really like the male lead. He was…too perfect, but when another male lead came along I fell head over heels for him instead. My only real complaint was that the ending left me really confused. I didn’t really get any closure from it. For the most part the plot was fast paced and each page made it impossible for me not to turn the next—not to mention the really good writing, and awesome dialogue. I highly recommend that you check out Unearthly.

  1. How do you get to read books that haven't come out yet?

  2. @Isabella- From Netgaley and some from goodreads giveaways. ;)

  3. I think Ezmirelda must be extremely persuasive to get to read books that aren't out yet:-))

    Congrats again on winning NaNo, Ez! I can't believe you wrote a 50,000 word novel in a *month*--wow!!

  4. @Yoko- Thanks! I actually had to go over the word count to finish the book. I had about 55,000 words done by the end of November. Sometimes you can get to 50,000 words and still not even be close to finishing the story--and I wanted the book to be completed, not just 50k.

    I've been reading so much lately to distract myself from my nano novel and so far it's been working. I haven't opened up my file with all the chapters in it for a whole week. ;)
