Favorite quote:“I guess since the groin is the center of a guy's world, he rarely guesses it isn't the center of yours.” 
In Strange Angels, Dru Anderson has what her grandmother called “the touch.” (Comes in handy when you’re traveling from town to town with your dad, hunting ghosts, suckers, wulfen, and the occasional zombie.)

Then her dad turns up dead—but still walking—and Dru knows she’s next. Even worse, she’s got two guys hungry for her affections, and they’re not about to let the fiercely independent Dru go it alone. Will Dru discover just how special she really is before coming face-to-fang with whatever—orwhoever— is hunting her

My Review:
When I was at my local library {I swear I go there so much I think they know me by name!} I saw this book, and remembered it is getting so good feedback from Goodreads so I checked it out. This book was a little bit of a disappointment, let me explain why.

Part 1:
I think of this book in two parts part 1 and part 2. In part one honesty I was ready to give this book 2 roses!! The writing was very simple and I felt like I was reading something my friends would write, granted my friends are great writers but they have not been writing very long and that's what it feels like when I read Lili's writing. The plot was moving at a slow pace for me I really just wanted to say," Do something already!" Also the way Dru treated Graves pissed me off, she treated him like a little 5 year old kid and even in her mind in she was calling him a kid!! I mean really, this guy gives you a place to a warm place to stay and some food- which by the way you can't seem do-and you act like he is in middle school? That’s rude in my opinion. Also it get annoying how she is always mentioning how hot Graves will be. It gets really annoying, it’s like Lili is trying to say              “Don’t worry! He will get hot later so Dru can be attracted to him now!" Don't get me tried with Dru!! From the cover I was hoping for a bad-ass -kick -paranormal- butt character but Dru seem to completely forget everything her father taught her I understand she misses her dad and is grieving but I want her to be independent!!

Part 2:
The reason I call this part two is because for some reason Lili suddenly changes her writing style a little bit here. It becomes a little more complex and more interesting to read. Also she becomes a little more independent and she stops talking about how hot Graves will be. But I find it really funny that Christophe {O.K. so what’s with the weird spelling?} treats Dru the same way she treats Graves: like a 12 year old kid. In my mind whenever Christophe treats Dru like that in my mind I'm just thinking that's karma bitch!!

So since part 2 was better I have decided to give this book 3 Roses!! If I decide to read the 2nd book it’s only to see if it gets any better.


  1. Doesn't sound like you enjoyed it much. THe next book will be better, I'm sure. LOL
