Just discovered this meme over at the fab Book Journey. I am a sucker for reading about what other people read so couldn't resist.
I've just read Angelology (how annoying is that word?) by Danielle Trussoni, about a race of angel/human hybrids called the Nephilim and the humans (or Angelologists) who oppose them in their dastardly plans. There are also fallen angels in there along with an artefact of great power that various people are after. Despite my reservations about reading this I did enjoy the story, and it was hard to put down even though I knew I should. It was akin to eating a large bar of chocolate, knowing I should stop or I'd feel sick at the end but unable to stop my hand reaching for the next piece. There is a distinct lack of anyone resembling a real character in this, and some plot developments that have such large holes in it's amazing someone hasn't fallen through into a different book. It is also much too long and could have done with a good edit (or even a bad one). However, if you want a plot-driven, easy-read and can enjoy it for what it is then give it a go.
Wanting something a little less light and fluffy I have now picked up S J Parris's Heresy about murders in Elizabethan Oxford at a time when to be the wrong religion could have deadly consequences. The period is fascinating and I'm quite enjoying the book, but C J Samsom is a much better writer and if you fancy delving into England's murky religious past then I'd recommend those as a starting place.
