Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is Teardrop by Lauren Kate.  Here's the synopsis:

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. From Lauren Kate comes an epic saga of heart-stopping romance, devastating secrets, and dark magic . . . a world where everything you love can be washed away.

Okay, so I'm not being mean when I say this but doesn't the cover look like an advert for a new Britney Spears perfume?  See what I'm saying?  I'm not saying it isn't beautiful but that was the first thing that came into my mind.  I'm always interested to see what Lauren Kate comes up with next as I did like the Fallen books (especially the last one which made me cry).  I like the sound of this one and I will definitely be adding it to the wishlist. 

Teardrop is published in the US/UK on 24th October, 2013. 


  1. I think the cover of this is stunning - and the book sounds good too!

    1. I think it's pretty too but damn it, I can't help think of Britney Spears when I look at it!

  2. I don't think very highly of the cover-it looks kind of cheap to yeah, I get the Britney reference!
