    1. Honestly, after reading at least one of the following books - Hush, Hush, Halo, Fallen - do you really believe there is a good paranormal YA romance about angels out there? A book about proms, love triangles, hawt boys, that doesn't make you want to hurl? No? Neither did I before reading Unearthly.I was very much impressed by this novel. I was cautious and not trusting of positive reviews of it, and it ended up exceeding my expectations. The book never even once made me roll my eyes - something [...]



    2. It's been a few months since I finished this book and I'm still swooning. You shall be read again soon my precioussssssActual rating: Teetering on 4.5 starsHush, Hush, who? Halo, what? Fallen, huh?After reading the catastrophe Hush, Hush, I had pretty much given up on reading any more books involving angels. As far as I was concerned it would be my first and last angel book. I resisted the urge (mostly thanks to my dear friend's reviews) to pick up Halo and Fallen, even though they still remain [...]


    3. 4.5 out of 5 stars Finally, a well-written angel series! Clara's physical appearance, the wings, the flying, the "glory"--make angels sound impossibly beautiful. The descriptions are so well done that you can really picture and feel what it would like to be in the presence of one. The supernatural aspects are well-balanced by a solid grounding in Clara's day to day life as a teenager with excellent descriptions of school projects, relationships with her friends and her brother, and especially he [...]


    4. I always feel a little bad when I disagree with the majority about a book, like there must be something I'm missing or I obviously didn't 'get' it. I do understand why a lot of people enjoyed Unearthly and there were parts I liked too but I still wasn't blown away. As far as young adult stories about angels go, this is probably one of the best - only, that's not really saying much. I found the book okay in many ways, I don't have a huge rant to make about girls who are obsessed with boys over ev [...]


    5. Thanks for the push, Jess! Tetons and Yellowstone, cowboys, log houses, swimming in rivers, boy/girl twins! NOMNOMNOM. I didn't even give a crap that this book is about angels. I loved it:)


    6. Well, well, well. It's angels again.Angelology is back-breaking work. I have a trunked angel work that I will one day revisit. I've worked too hard to drop it. And I mean that sincerely. I began writing it two years ago, and I am still not finished with the research. I still have stacks and stacks of angel-related references lying around, from fiction to dictionary-format archives, from endless websites to spin-off scripture, from links to Renaissance artwork to holy books. I've read both the To [...]


    7. Rating: 2.5 Stars I just want to let you all know that while I'm writing this, I am also building a fort. Yes, a fort to protect me from all the boulders and bombs that will most likely be thrown my way forhighlydisliking this novel. It doesn't matter that my fort is made of pillows or that it contains highly flammable books inside it - the point is, I have a fort. Thus, I hope you won't attack me sincewellI have a fort!Part 1: In Which I "Get It" I get it. I seriously do. Igetwhy there is so mu [...]


    8. “I'm looking at you. Why are you always trying to hide how pretty you are?” I've been thinking about my rating of this book for two hours, and it's precariously between 1 and 2 stars since the moment I finished it. I know you're wanting to beat the crap out of me right now for giving this book just two stars. How dare I ? Please, just let me explain, and if you're not satisfied with the answers after that, you can slap my face as hard as you want. I'll let you.“Hey, Carrots," he says.”Un [...]


    9. When I saw that one of my favorite goodreaders, Tatiana, gave this book four stars I thought she'd gone insane. I mean, it's a YA book featuring angels for crying out loud! Surely it can't be good let alone worthy of four whole stars from Tatiana, so clearly she lost her mind. But I purchased the audiobook anyway because it was January 13th and I was anxiously awaiting the release of Shadowfever which was still five days away at the time. Plus it didn't hurt that this audiobook was reasonably pr [...]


    10. Is this a revolutionary, earth-shattering book that will change the face of YA fantasy? No. Is this a book that will forever change the way people look at angels? No. Is this a riveting, un-put-downable read that will make it to the top of the bestseller lists? No. Should people read this book? Absolutely. Now, I know you're thinking I'm bonkers, but let me tell you why 'Unearthly', despite it's girl-next-door appearance, should be winning Miss America. But before I begin, may I just say how str [...]


    11. I did a bad thing. I ruined breakfast. The waffle and the sausage may never forgive me. For those of you who are wondering "What the fuck? Has she finally lost it?" the answer is 'no'. You see, I was supposed to buddy read this with Rose and Ellis in October but after reading a book that left me questioning my faith in humanity I decided to pick this up and just skim the first chapter, you know, "Just the tip, just for a second, just to see how it feels". We all know how that goes. Eight hours l [...]


    12. Sigh. I like Tucker and his cowboy hat. Having images of Kevin Bacon in his Footloose days for some reason while reading this.


    13. So I was wired on Christmas Stocking candy while writing this. I'll warn you once. Only read the underlined parts:Unearthly's all about earth stuff. Just Kidding. It's not. Just Kidding. It is. Just Kidding. It's not It's about UN-earth stuff. Like angels. Just Kidding. It's about devils. Just Kidding. I'm evil like a devil. Just Kidding. I am evil like a G6. Just kidding. I'm actually fly like a G6. Just Kidding. I don't even know what a G6 is. Just Kidding. Of course, I do. It's a cybernetic b [...]


    14. Clara Gardner is a Quartarious angel-blood. This means that one quarter of her blood is that of an angel's. This gives her wings that she's not yet learned how to use and abilities that are still developing. Lately strange visions of a mysterious boy and fire have been plaguing her, and that's just one aspect in the myriad of things she's yet to understand about her place on this earth. Believing that these visions are tied to her "purpose"---the one thing all angel-bloods are charged with accom [...]


    15. I feel it only fair to warn you guys that I am involved in a one-sided fictional relationship with Cynthia Hand. In which we spend our evenings sipping martinis and laughing hysterically at the craptasticness of all the recent angel novels, while Jericho Barrons kneels at my side sporting a Galactica flight suit and feeding me chocolate-dipped cherries.(Apparently, my fantasies have a knack for getting out of control at times. Just roll with it).Anyhoodle, Unearthly is a delicious cheese-filled [...]


    16. This review is also featured on Tasty Books!A typical conversation I have with my friends/family:Me (Reading something): UGH I HATE THIS SHIT SO MUCH.Friend/Family member: Then why don't you stop reading it?Me: Because what if it spontaneously becomes awesome or something? I know, it never really happens, but WHAT IF.And it's true. It hardly happens. It's very rare that I start off hating a book, and then end up really liking it. I can only think of a handful of times it has happened. Well, Un [...]


    17. I've been burned so many times by angel books; Hush, Hush, Fallen, Angelfire, and what have you, so I was quite set to hate this book. I thought, "let's just give it a chapter" and then what do you know. That one chapter turned into five and then ten and all of a sudden I just could not stop reading. I *had* to know what happened next and my god the amount of times I screamed at the book for the girl to HOOK UP WITH THE GUY was so mind boggling. I could not put this book down. It had an uber str [...]


    18. I read this book back in October. and I've been dying for it to be released to other people could bask in it's fabulousness!! I have to say that in the midst of all the 'angel' themed book hitting the YA market right now. This one is my favorite! (of the ones I've read so far.)Let's talk about how wonderful this book is, shall we?I was so glad that Clara knew she was angel. This isn't a story of a girl discovering an she's part angel even though I initially thought it was because the synopsis I [...]


    19. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand, is one of the most cliched, over-ranted YA books I'd ever read. No kidding.There're a lot of five stars reviews for Unearthly, first book of Miss Hand's paranormal series aboutrprise, surprise: angels and angel-bloods. (hybrid between humans and angels/Nephilim) There are also handful of famous YA novelists e.g. Richelle Mead and Melissa Marr giving their recommendations, that sounds promising isn't it? Even the cover artwork looks kind of good! But Unearthly had turne [...]


    20. Edit: This is how I imagine Tucker irresistiblereadsFavourite Quote: "He seems to gaze right into me, like he's seeing me for who I truly am. And in that moment, I want to tell him the truth. Crazy, I know. Stupid. Wrong. I try to take a step back, but my foot slips and I almost go headfirst into the river but he catches me."Wow! Surprisingly I loved it! I have been having a bad run with angel books lately. But this is exactly what I have been looking for. Unearthly has an original plot, interes [...]


    21. ** 3,5 "VERY CUTE" stars ! **Finally finished this first book that I had been wanting to read for a long time, and this was such a fun, easy and cute read, though a bit weak on the paranormal aspect !The world building : I thought the angel mythology in this book was quite interesting and intriguing, but unfortunately it wasn’t as well developed and as original as I was hoping it would be and compared to some other books about angels I read in the past (namely the Sweet trilogy or the Penryn a [...]


    22. 3 1/2 starsThis is a real stand-out in the recent crop of young adult paranormal romances. And that makes me a bit sad, because the characteristics that make it so notable are the healthy romances, supportive friends, and present parents. This book doesn’t stand out for its mythology, which is rather hazy and unremarkable (and completely unobjectionable – to the religious and non-religious alike), or its heroine, who straddles the line between awkward girl and extraordinary being almost perf [...]


    23. Lovely!! I really, really enjoyed this. It's a YA novel, but somehow it felt very different. For once, it wasn't just about the paranormal aspect, or the exciting new world the protagonist is thrown in. It was about finding oneself. Trying to fit in. Finding love. Life (with wings!)!! Everything I was hoping for while going into this. Clara is part angel, and she has just received a hint of what her purpose on earth is. After finding out the location, they pack up and move there. It's quite a bi [...]


    24. 4.5 stars!I am really surprised by how much I loved this one. I was even prepared to round up to 5 stars, but then I saw that my friends who have read it loved the subsequent books even more, so I decided to leave room for improvement! I read and loved a book by Cynthia Hand a couple of weeks ago, and had many friends tell me that I had to try this series, and I'm so glad I did. I desperately needed a genre switch, and this turned out to be such a fun read. "What do you see in a guy like Christi [...]


    25. Initial Reaction After CompletionThis reaction is due to that what-the-fuck endingThis was a fun, enjoyable read. Among the disastrous Angel PNR novels out there, this one is much better. And I liked it. No scratch that. I really, really liked it. There are, undoubtedly, better books out there, but so are worse. I will confess, I won't remember the plot or the characters verbatim in the days to come, because it just wasn't that good. And I'm definitely not going to reread it.But it was entertain [...]


    26. 4.5/5This book has been on my to-read list for a while now and I was on the fence whether I wanted to read it or not. I decided to give it a try even though I wasn't really sure if I'd want to read another angel book because most of them are kind of predictable. Since I needed a book to read and this had been one of the first on my want to read shelves, I decided to give it a try. Unearthly was unlike the other angel books I've read and it was very good and a worthy read.Unearthly is about a 16 [...]


    27. Finally angel story we paranormal fans can get behind. Today's angel stories are riddled with weak heroines, obsessive "love interests", and shoddy mythology (Fallen and Halo, anyone?). With its strong characters, swoon-worthy guys, and unique angel lore, Unearthly is now my gold-star standard for angel books.I grew up on a ranch near where this story takes place, so reading Unearthly felt like coming home. Cynthia Hand creates a vivid setting and characters that spoke to me. She perfectly captu [...]



    28. TBR Reduce Challenge #5- 2011 (Jess) Now this is an awesome book!!It's no secret that I love Angle books, the whole element fascinates me, it's alluring, and lustful and just really fun reads. So I'm happy to say that Unearthly just added to one of my favorite Angel books of all time! It's made of pure awesomesauce!First off, I'd like to applaud Cynthia Hand writing style. Sometimes I get lost in terminology when one is reading these kinds of books, but she writes in a fluent steady pace, captiv [...]
