    Saddest thing is, you payed 80$ for that stuff.

    Well we're watching.

    So you might make your money back through this video.

    I think Angels for the same reason as Vampires. They're humans, but like, better.
    Look like almost exactly like humans, but have extra magic powers. (Also includes wizards, which are literally humans with magic.)

    Comparatively, Werewolves presume the reader is a furry (or, perhaps makes the reader a furry), and most other mainstream fantasy creatures are either ugly monsters (orcs, trolls, goblins, etc aren't exactly conventionally attractive), or are basically just humans with few additional powers to actually make their fantasy-ness apparent (Elves, Dwarves, Hobbits, Gnomes, etc.)

    Plus if you throw too many fantasy races in, you start drifting into High Fantasy, which requires all sorts of lore that requires a bit more effort than someone ripping of twilight is likely willing to put in. Twilight is not a hard book to copy. Probably why so many people did it.

    Speaking of Twilight Clones, Twilight itself, at least in my opinion, is a clone of a much older book by the same woman who wrote a Wrinkle in Time. The book in question is called a Ring of Endless Light. The story contains a rich love interest with a personality similar to Edwards. There is mind reading, or something like it, and there is a childhood friend that reminds me a lot of Jacob. I would be surprised if Meyers HADNT read it because the stories are so similar.

    Anyone else think he's the main support for the market for these books?

    i have read the entirety of the hush hush series as a tween and i really want to hear you tear it to fucking shreds because it deserves it.

    What do you do with all these books once you read them if you write notes in them? Might be cool to do a giveaway for some. A personal hobby of mine is finding used books on thrift and reading the previous owner's notes. Granted I mostly read self help so it is much more common to find write ins in them vs something like twilight. It makes the read extra fascinating and is an extra layer of fun going through it with a relative stranger. Apologies if you have mentioned it before or not! Take care and keep on.

    A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings is a pretty okay YA angel romance book.

    I remember as a teen I liked blue bloods. I read hush hush too and I can't remember any of it, like if I liked it or hated it.

    I actually finished Halo like the day after you published this video. Please, I really want to hear your review. In my opinion, the book was great. (I mean, for the work of a sixteen-year-old author, it was.) There was a lot of melodrama and problems with the story, such as problems caused by the villains being wrapped up way too quickly. But I would love to see a review of it soon! It's an amazing book (In my opinion) and am hyped to read book two and three

    Angels really have that etherealness the twilight vampires have…the transition to fae that is so trendy now seems natural. I’m really looking forward to the next vampire resurgence, see what people come up with for the mythos post SM

    It’s not angels, but “The Demon Trapper’s Daughter” series is really fucking good

    If you like reading about angels but get tired of romance, the Threshold Series by Christa Kinde is pretty good (in my personal opinion). Might be a little slow-paced for some people (and might seem a bit odd to people who aren't Christians, since it's a Christian series), but the characters are so great that it kept me invested despite my abnormally short attention span.

    These __ YA romance books are rarely ever good but they do wonders for escapism and entertainment.
    While I know this is going to be pain for you, it’s enjoyable to see you still try and give each and every book a chance.
    I wish you the best reading Hush Hush. It’s truly … yeah.

    I see I am not the only one who does read and watch stuff for the sole purpose of finding out what exactly went wrong with it. xD

    also: Angels is kinda weird, since usually the YA-angstyness is all about a "dark secret" and being a "monster" and what not. Making the fantasy aspect lawful good is kinda strange and breaks with the formula I guess. (also what kind of conflict do you get out of that ? Idk feels weird)

    Oh shit, the hype is real! I'm so excited for this fucking angel video 😂

    pitch parties are probably the reason so many of the type cropped up at once

    I'd read them, if only authors used… how they call them? "Biblically accurate angels"

    I remember the Halo trilogy ,, I read it in middle school and it was probably the first proper YA novel I ever read

    Oh my god I had forgotten about Obsidian, I know I read that but I can't remember anything lmao

    $80 of YA Angel books and none of them were Immortal City. For some reason I was obsessed with this book at 13 but looking back, I think I just liked the hollywood-esque drama lmao. (bonus fun fact: I read it in German and the title of the German edition is "Angel, City, Love". yup.)

    there are less werewolf books because that trope was mainly used in fanfiction like omegaverse stories

    Honestly YA needs to wake up with all of its "fantasy" of making teenagers into badass and the most powerful character in the underworld. A 17 year old kingpin is ridiculous

    i think a lot of people like twists on classic/well known stories which is why we get loads of fairytale rewrites and angel stuff, because it's a twist on what we've been taught (heaven v hell and stuff)

    I expected to have read a couple of these series when I was in middle school but I remember reading all of them lmao, I completely blocked these out until now
