Teardrop
Teardrop | Lauren Kate
An epic saga of heart-stopping romance, devastating secrets, and dark magic . . . a world where everything you love can be washed away. The first book in the new series from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Fallen series 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 inheritancea 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 the Hardcover edition.

I chose to read this book because it's by my favorite author. I ended up loving it and it's now one of my favorite series. If you loved her book Fallen you will love this one as well. The book begins slowly as Fallen does but if you keep reading you will not regret it.

Growing up Eureka's mother told her to never cry and she ended up dying in a freak accident at the start of the book. This left Eureka puzzled and alone in the world until the boy who saved her in the accident came along who is named Ander. Her mother left her three inheritance a locket, thunderstone and book which end up making better sense later in the story.

The person who processed him Eureka will end up having to go head to head with in the next book. 6mo

Spending the next two days in Indy. They have this cool downtown program that mixes art and literacy to offer free books to the community. The tagged book is the one I grabbed. I have run across 2 so far. City Market was a bust except for this industrial little library.

Hestapleton Whoa! I live in Indy and didn‘t know about this! I‘ll have to go hunting. 7mo
LibrarianRyan @Hestapleton according to the sign there are ten. I have found 2. The big green at monument circle was pretty empty. I‘ll post pics soon. 7mo
MaGoose Wow, this looks and sounds amazing. Too bad I don't live anywhere near Indianapolis, so I can't check it out. Bummer. 7mo
mjdowens LOL. I live in Indy also and work right downtown. I had no idea about this either 7mo

This was a quick read for me in a genre I don‘t normally read. It had terrible goodreads reviews but I enjoyed it! I do not read fantasy, not even sure if this is fantasy genre🤷🏻‍♀️ anyway, already ordered the second book.

This one was a solid 3 ⭐️ for me. Not much happened until the last 2 hours of the book. This may be one where I don‘t continue on to the sequel...cut then again...who knows 🤷🏼‍♀️

✨I like all of the #laurenkate books that I‘ve read so far, but I haven‘t read #teardrop yet. If you have, what did you think of it? The ratings seem to be pretty low, but I think it sounds great.✨

I‘m on the fence about this. I enjoyed the mystique of the beginning, the storyline was interesting and I liked the characters but then it became a bit predictable. I will persevere and move on to Waterfall, hoping for some twists and surprises.

Lots going on in my life at the moment so it‘s good to have some ‘me‘ time occasionally. I‘m quite enjoying this, more than the ‘Fallen‘ series actually.

It‘s nice to read some YA with a fantasy element to take my mind off of the real world.

I got distracted by ‘Domestic‘ (such a good book) but I am back in the land of teenage angst and mysticism and enjoying the change of pace. I also just painted my nails so I‘m showing them off too 💅🏻

This has been on my shelf since 2014, I was waiting to have all three books before I read it but I guess I will make do with the 2 I have. I liked the Fallen series (not the abysmal film though) so here‘s hoping I will enjoy this one too. It makes a change from murder mysteries anyway.

niha923 That's a beautiful cover! 2y

This book started out very promising only to fall so flat in the last 50 pages.

I'm only up to chapter 10 and so far the story hasn't really progressed much. The plot is hanging in the air and the characters have no clear goals yet. Get a clue, Eureka! Ander!
I can't even muster enough curiosity to read more enthusiastically.
I loved Lauren's Fallen series so much that I read it 7 times, but this is just... bleh...
I'm so used to getting to some kind of turning point at the 3rd or 5th chapter in any book, but so far, nothing.

"Teardrop" by Lauren Kate 2/⭐️
.
.
I feel like Lauren Kate has some great ideas for fantasy books, and I was really excited to start this one when I heard the premise: A girl was taught that she must never cry, only to later read a story about a girl who cried entire continent into the sea. There was promise of magic, intrigue, and a whisper of Atlantis. It starts out interestingly but the second book totally killed the series for me.

Mein Fall war es nicht ganz so.. irgendwie plätscherte die Story so vor sich hin und das Ende fand ich auch merkwürdig. Die Idee mit Atlantis ist eig cool, nur hatte die Story letztlich damit noch nicht wirklich was Zu tun :/. werde den zweiten Teil wohl nicht lesen.. #booklover #german #reader #teardrop #leseratte #bücherwurm #urbanfantasy #fantasy

Wie schnell und leicht man sich doch von einem schönen Cover täuschen lassen kann! So schön dieses ist, so enttäuschend ist leider die Geschichte. Ich hatte wirklich mehr von dem Buch erwartet. Die Grundidee finde ich schön, nur die Umsetzung ist, meiner Meinung nach, gar nicht gelungen. Alles viel zu langatmig und eintönig, jedoch mit vielen, auch schönen Beschreibungen..
Daher 2,5 von 5 Sternen

Liselotte Stimme dir da voll und ganz zu :/... Habe mich auch entschieden nicht weiter zu lesen 😣... Eig so schade, da die Grundidee ja gar nicht schlecht ist.. 3y

Bin schon über die Hälfte und finde immer noch, dass die Spannung fehlt. So langsam könnte hier mal was passieren..?
