Hello my little favorite munchkins! How are you all doing? I am doing okay. I have recently finished reading this book which I got from YALLWEST and omg I am just anxiously waiting to write the whole entire review at the moment because I got so much to say.  Anyways, I have to write an essay after this so I will try be to the point but also share all of my excitement.

Description according to Goodreads,Sometimes, I imagine alternate endings to the story: last-minute miracles, touches of magic. I picture how things might have gone, if I wasn’t there. If I’d left just a few minutes later. If I hadn’t been alone. It doesn’t make any difference. One way or another, the crash always comes.

Ten days after Jaya Mackenzie’s mum dies, angels start falling from the sky. Smashing down to earth at extraordinary speeds, wings bent, faces contorted, not a single one has survived.

Hysteria mounting with every Being that drops, Jaya’s father uproots the family to Edinburgh intent on catching one alive. But Jaya can’t stand this obsession and, struggling to make sense of her mother’s sudden death and her own role on that fateful day, she’s determined to stay out of it.

When her best friend disappears and her father’s mania spirals, things hit rock bottom and it’s at that moment something extraordinary happens: An angel lands right at Jaya’s feet, and it’s alive. Finally she is forced to acknowledge just how significant these celestial beings are.

Set against the backdrop of the frenzied Edinburgh festival, OUT OF THE BLUE tackles questions of grief and guilt and fear over who we really are. But it’s also about love and acceptance and finding your place in this world as angels drop out of another.”


Review:

  • This was one of the books I got at YallWest Y’all.
  • OKAY SO FIRST OF ALL THIS IS ABOUT ANGELS THAT ARE FALLING FROM THE SKY SO I HAD TO READ THIS.
  • THE COVER IS GORGEOUS SO I PERSONALLY LOVED THAT FACTOR.
  • This has a disabled bisexual MC falling for a lesbian POC character, it also has a terms of death and coming to grief and suicided in this book.
  • I loved our main character Jaya, I mean she has struggled with so much and is still willing to help.
    • I really loved seeing her character develop throughout the story from really being one person dealing and obsessing about her problem to another where she saw things in others terms, was willing to help and maybe even find love.
  • Our fallen angel, TeaCake.
    • Where can I start with her.
      • I loved that she was completley different from every other fallen angel book.
        • She wasn’t looking for a romantic partner. She was trying to get home.
        • She couldn’t talk to others, but she could mimick and sing.
        • She had a completely different story arc of her from everyotheor fallen angel book that I have read *which is a lot* and I really enjoyed reading this new character.
        • She was able to feel, like a human. She wasn’t an animal, she wasn’t a person though. She was an angel and she deserves to have the same personal rights like everyone else.
          • FYI, this goes for real human beings out there!
  • Allie and Callum.
    • OKAY SO THIS SIBLING RELATIONSHIP KILLED MY HEART.
      • There was a scene in this book that annoyed me but after I finished reading it, it all made more sense. If you wanna know that then you should read it *wink* *wink*.
  • This book really dealt with losing a loved one heavily which I think was amazing because you really don’t see that much in books.
    • This book also deals with coming to terms of a loved one dying and what the process looks like so I think that was amazing of this book.
  • The only thing that I didn’t care for was the way it ended.
    • It felt extremely rushed and I would have liked to seen that paced better and maybe we could’ve seen more of all of these characters but, besides that I really enjoyed this book.
  • Oh this is also set in Scotland and with the royal wedding happening yesterday what would make you not want to read it?

5/5 stars
