I Wanna Be Your Other Half

Ok, so somehow I uploaded my review of this novel to YouTube but failed to actually write a post about it – so here that post is!


Written by: Heather Burch

Released: February 1, 2012 by Zondervan Publishing
Summary: After being inexplicably targeted by an evil intent on harming her at any cost, seventeen-year-old Nikki finds herself under the watchful guardianship of three mysterious young men who call themselves halflings. Sworn to defend her, misfits Mace, Raven, and Vine battle to keep Nikki safe while hiding their deepest secret—and the wings that come with.
A growing attraction between Nikki and two of her protectors presents a whole other danger. While she risks a broken heart, Mace and Raven could lose everything, including their souls. As the mysteries behind the boys’ powers, as well as her role in a scientist’s dark plan, unfold, Nikki is faced with choices that will affect the future of an entire race of heavenly beings, as well as the precarious equilibrium of the earthly world.

While Halflings wasn’t my favourite novel of the year, I would really like to read the next one. However, that being said, it wouldn’t be the end of the world if I didn’t. There were many things about this novel that I both liked and hated – but that can be said for a lot of other books too. To be honest, I’m a little tired of both Angel novels and love-triangles and since this book contained both... yeah.

There was also this horrible lag that the book did when I was reading it. I think that I may have enjoyed it a little more if I had had a paperback version to read from and not an e-galley. However, I don’t want an electronic malfunction to be the reason I don’t finish a novel.

If you’re looking for a nice read that doesn’t involve too much (and you’re not jaded by love triangles and angels) check this one out. I’ll admit that the angel part was done really well and if you enjoyed Embrace by Jessica Shirvington you may like this one as well!

I’m giving it a 5/10 and I would like to see what else this author has to offer.

I received this e-galley via NetGalley in return for a fair and honest review.
