Trailer Ø Falling Under PDF by ↠´ Gwen Hayes FABULOUS Beautiful, gothic, full of wonder, angst, romance and forbidden love Falling Under has the feel of retelling the Hades Demeter myth, which I just adore This debut is fresh, gorgeous, and utterly enchanting.
Dear YA,1 Please don t let this be another book on star crossed lovers whose relationship is doomed from the beginning because one is in danger of being killed by the other.
2 Please, please, please no love triangles 3 Please make the heroine a heroine by which, I mean a thinking, independent, strong willed and self aware young woman who could be construed as a positive role model for your target audience And let the male lead be than just her love interest Let him have a interesting role and not just eye candy 4 Please don t let the dialogue be riddled with now isms Sincerely,Isa First off, I will restrain myself from making sparkly comparisons because while there are similarities, there are enough positive elements to balance the book out Now, color me surprised I actually enjoyed this one Among the positives that Falling Under has to offer are the dialogue, the Theia Alderson Has Always Led A Sheltered Life In The Small California Town Of Serendipity Falls But When A Devastatingly Handsome Boy Appears In The Halls Of Her School, Theia Knows She S Seen Haden Before Not Around Town, But In Her DreamsAs The Haden Of Both The Night And The Day Beckons Her Closer One Moment And Pushes Her Away The Next, The Only Thing Theia Knows For Sure Is That The Incredible Pull She Feels Towards Him Is Stronger Than Her FearAnd When She Discovers What Haden Truly Is, Theia S Not Sure If She Wants To Resist Him, Even If The Cost Is Her Soul I have wildly mixed feelings about this book, which is loosely based on the myth of Persephone I m not sure I can write a coherent review because I m so conflicted, so here goes the pros and cons list.
For the first two thirds of the book I was pretty annoyed with the main character Theia Stop falling in love with boys just because they re kinda cute, girls I really, really disliked Haden Manipulative, bad tempered, controlling, stalker ish guys who try to make girls jealous, especially while view spoiler grinding their hips against other girls during a dance while eye locked with the main character hide spoiler This book was totally not what I was expecting Definitely a lot dark and wickedly twisted than I ever would have expected, yet I think that is why I liked it to much Under was a complete creep fest faceless beings, skeletons stitched together people rivers of tears I had those huge eyes OO and the expression of no f ing way it was awesome.
The characters in this novel were extremely well written Everyone of them had truly unique qualities that made them very hard to forget Theia s friends Donny and Amelia aka Ame how to you say that anyway like Amy or Aim couldn t have been different not only from each other but from Theia as well, and for some reason that worked incredibly well Donny, what can I say about her, she is hilarious Those girls were some I was so excited to read Falling Under after I won a copy on Goodreads First Reads The concept of meeting a mysterious, devastatingly handsome guy from your dreams sounded captivating, but Falling Under was too much of the worn thin I m a jerk to you but you love me anyway romance, and the parts that were original were too dark for me I d recommend Falling Under to those that love the darker side of paranormal fiction not me.
Theia, Theia, Theia The author tells us things about her, but Theia s actions show us a completely different story She puts herself in danger Again And again She s supposed to be this incredible musician and smart and rational, but she makes so many TSTL choices that I gave up Haden even tells her why he s there and it involves Theia in a horrible way and yet she still comes back for WHY Why can t we ever get a heroine I was lucky enough to read this as a draft and was blown away I agree with another reviewer that the imagery is amazing When telling Gwen what I thought I said, This is going to be big, like Twilight big You will LOVE it

Does this sound just a teensy bit familiar yet Ugh, the first two thirds of the book was a complete rehash of Twilight, albeit a better written one A solid 2 stars not horrible, and yet not horribly original I had to roll my eyes a few times here and there A couple of facepalms appeared, too.
What bumped the rating up to 2.
5 stars was the last third of Falling Under Told in the perspectiv I have to admit sometimes often I pick up books just because I like the cover art This one in particular reminded me ofAmerican Beauty , so I couldn t resist.
ALERT this is going to be bitchy.
I threw this book before even finishing the first chapter.
Why Because I ve already cringed my teeth four times in the first three pages And that s too much.
I m going to show you what I mean.
The protagonist is on the bed, reading from her iPhone And she speaks about her love for books Every night I went somewhere new and pretended to be someone else someone interesting Sniff sniff I m smelling author s personal issues, here.
But the burning man falling from the sky pulled me from my faraway world.
You don t say Really Here I was depicting in my head this dumb chick, daydreaming on her bed with a vacuous expression on her face, when
