Creature Feature Friday: Angels

Today Katie from Katie's Book Blog is here to tell you why she adores angels...
What is a angel?
The dictionary definition of an angel is one of a class of spiritual beings; a celestial attendant of god. In medieval angelology, angels constituted the lowestof the nine celestial orders (seraphim, cherubim, thrones,dominations or dominions, virtues, powers, principalities or princedoms, archangels, and angels).
Most of the angels in young adults books these days are actually fallen angels which means they have done something bad to be cast out of heaven. They pretty much spend their days on earth trying to make up for what they have done and gain readmittance to heaven.
What do you love about angels?
Angels are my favorite paranormal creature because they are innately good. In pretty much all the books about angels, the angels are sent to help someone who really needs it. They are usually not the best angels in heaven but even after doing something bad to get cast out of heaven they spend their time trying to make up for their mistakes.
Another great thing about angels is their history. Every angel has a different story about their former lives, what their lives were like in heaven, what they did to get cast out of heaven, and of course how they are trying to make up for those mistakes. These stories make the books a lot more interesting by incorporating historical, paranormal, and romance all into one.

Favorite angel in fiction:
Patch from Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick (and the sequels, Crescendo and Silence). He is very sexy but he is also really sweet. He means well even though he usually does something very wrong. He is the angel in the picture that I chose to represent angels!
Favorite angel in pop-culture:
Al from Angels In The Outfield (he’s the one with the wings.) He is definitely not the same kind of angel that is popular in books at the moment but he is an angel that I grew up watching. He is a little bit crazy but very funny.
If you like angels then you should read…
