Halo by Alexandra Adornetto (Book Review)

Title: Halo
Author: Alexandra Adornetto
Rating: 4.5/5

Since I’m not so into YA genre , I never thought that I’d fall in love with this book. And because of this, I’ll make sure to read one, once in a while.

It was a sweet love story of an angel (Bethany) and a human being (Xavier) which vows to conquer what is impossible: for an angel and a human being to fall in love with each other.

The author’s description of angels was so beautiful. To some, they’d fall in love with the leading guy, Xavier but to me, Gabriel (yes, the archangel) is the epitome of perfection! He stands according to his own values, he’d protect people from harm and the most appealing of all, aside from his masculine physique is his good heart and strong judgement. He is a mysterious type leader in a community and credibility vibrates in his over-all persona.

The other angel sent from above, aside from Bethany and Xavier was Ivy. I wanted to be like her. Multi-talented homemaker, involved in the community with a good heart and a face of angel.

Why only 4.5?

Endings is a crucial part when I’m reading a book. It’s something very important for me because it is where I’d base the lingering effect of the story.

Unfortunately, I ended up frustrated. I wish the author didn’t end it there because I felt like it was rushed. If I’d be the writer of this book, I would put the readers in confusion and in total anticipation so they will immediately read the sequel: Hades.

But it was the only frustrating part for me. I loved the rest of the book and though I’ve read a lot of negative reviews about this book, if I were you, try to read it first before judging from there. You’ll never know, you might also like it.

Quotes from the book:

That was one of the saddest things about people. Their most important thoughts and feelings often went unspoken and barely understood.

One of the most frustrating words in human language as far as I could tell, was love.

Our mission is clear: to perform good deeds, acts of charity and kindness; to lead by example.

If they can find beauty in music, they can find beauty in one another and the world too.

Some say, we can’t choose who we fall in love with; love chooses us.

Sometimes people fall for the complete antithesis of everything they believe they’re looking for.

Aw I’m sad you were disappointed in the ending! This sounds like a fascinating read though, since I like the premise of angels. Great review! 🙂
