*Calms* Ok, that is not an understatement by any means, this book is one of my favourite books ever. Its so beautifully written, both in words and by plot. The characters Bethany, Gabriel and Ivy are by far the most beautiful characters I have ever read about and the most interesting. The Three angels are sent to Earth in human form to rid the small town from the forces of evil after many bad things start to and have happened there, Bethany had no idea she would fall in love with the human boy Xavier, everything seems to be going perfect for their forbidden love affair, until an evil force returns yet again to the town the angels are so desperately trying to change.
I am very much looking forward to reading her first series from Australia as well as the second in the trilogy Hades (2011) *makes grabby hands* as I know for definite that the next one will be un-put-downable like Halo.
What if the person you were meant to be with could never be yours?
17-year-old Lucinda falls in love with a gorgeous, intelligent boy, Daniel, at her new school, the grim, foreboding Sword & Cross . . . only to find out that Daniel is a fallen angel, and that they have spent lifetimes finding and losing one another as good & evil forces plot to keep them apart.
SOME ANGELS ARE DESTINED TO FALL...
Have to thank my house mate for this riveting yet horrifying read, I was unsure of the book at first as it takes a while to get into, but when you are reading this book its impossible to put down. it has so many twists and turns, and from the little information you get from the characters drives you insane, so that's why its so hard to put down, plus with everything that happens your always readying yourself for the next big thing. It has its horrific moments and is a very sad book to read, but ever optimistic I am quite looking forward to reading its sequel Torment.

Starring: Leonardo Di Caprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Micheal Caine.
Release Date: 6th December 2010
Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state, when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb's rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved.
Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible-inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one.
As this film is coming out onto DVD and Blu-ray very soon, I thought I would make this film my first review on blogger for film. I have to say when I first watched one of Christopher Nolan's films 'Batman Begins' I was amazed by how brilliantly he had created a batman film that looked way ahead of its time, and then again with 'Memento' and of course 'The Dark Knight'. Inception however, has to be by far my favourite film ever, the way in which it was filmed was simply mind-blowing, the slow motion was just incredible, making the time passing by seem more realistic as they hurled themselves within the dream. The special effects in the car crash scene was my favourite scene out of the whole film, as when the dream begins to collapse in its three scenarios, you keep getting drawn back and forth between different worlds that the architect has created. The acting was very well received by all parties of the film, even young actress Ellen Page (Juno) played her part perfectly. The imagination and creativity used to make this film become a reality was outstanding and if any film deserves to win Oscars it's definitely for this great film. It is a must see but if you have the need for the toilet or a snack definitely pause the film because if you don't you wont have a clue what's going on!
Hush Hush ~ Becca Fitzpatrick
Hush Hush, was such an amazing book, it kept me hooked from start to finish. Hush Hush is about a teenage girl Nora Grey, who falls for a pretty damn good looking guy named Patch. Patch is pretty mysterious guy who seems to be stalking poor Nora, as weird things start to occur in Nora's life, it only seems reasonable for her not to trust Patch (mainly due to stalker-ish behaviour). The book is a whirlwind of events which constantly keeps you on edge, it was so hard to put this book down, not even joking! Looking forward to reading Fitzpatrick's sequel Crescendo this week, hopefully it will live up to all expectations, will let you all know with another short review shortly!
