Waiting on Wednesday (#5): Teardrop by Lauren Kate

Hey everyone. Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine. Its purpose is to highlight upcoming releases we’re dying to get our hands on.


Title: Teardrop (Teardrop #1)
Author: Lauren Kate
Release Date: October 2013

The first in a new series by Lauren Kate, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Fallen series, TEARDROP is an epic saga of heart-stopping romance, devastating secrets, and dark magic . . . a world where everything you love can be washed away.

Never, ever cry. . . . Eureka Boudreaux’s mother drilled that rule into her daughter years ago. But now her mother is gone, and everywhere Eureka goes he is there: Ander, the tall, pale blond boy who seems to know things he shouldn’t, who tells Eureka she is in grave danger, who comes closer to making her cry than anyone has before.

But Ander doesn’t know Eureka’s darkest secret: ever since her mother drowned in a freak accident, Eureka wishes she were dead, too. She has little left that she cares about, just her oldest friend, Brooks, and a strange inheritance—a locket, a letter, a mysterious stone, and an ancient book no one understands. The book contains a haunting tale about a girl who got her heart broken and cried an entire continent into the sea. Eureka is about to discover that the ancient tale is more than a story, that Ander might be telling the truth . . . and that her life has far darker undercurrents than she ever imagined.

I really enjoyed Lauren Kate’s Fallen series. It was one of the first series’ I read with Fallen Angels, so I’m really excited to see how this new series is. Teardrop releases October 22, 2013. To pre-order your copy of Teardrop, click here.

    • The cover is SO gorgeous! I’ve been trying to get my hands on an ARC, but I also can’t wait to see the finished hardcover. It looks like it’s gonna be all pretty and shiny!
