Book Recommendation

Fallen is a book that I read months ago. It originally grabbed my attention because I liked the cover, lol. But as I read it, I was drawn into the story for two reasons. One, I had a similar idea for a story like this. I wanted to see how closely my idea resembled the published author's work. I eventually decided to ditch my story, Watching Over Me, and move onto another project.

And two...it had a strong plot. This story is like working on a puzzle. You're given pieces every chapter, and you have to put the story together. Fallen is a YA book, but it's worth the read. Here is the synopsis found on the author Lauren Kate's webpage:

Fallen

Some Angels are Destined to Fall

There’s something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.

Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.

Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce–and goes out of his way to make that very clear–she can’t let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her.

Dangerously exciting and darkly romantic, Fallen is a page turning thriller and the ultimate love story.

(Now, I'm eagerly looking forward to the sequel.)

Torment

LOVE NEVER DIES

Lucinda is sure that she and Daniel are meant to be together forever. Now they are forced apart in a desperate bid to save Luce from the Outcasts–immortals who want her dead. As she discovers more about her past lives, Luce starts to suspect that Daniel is hiding something. What if he has lied to her about their shared past? What if Luce is really meant to be with someone else?

The sequel to the bestselling Fallen hits stores September 28th, 2010.


In the meantime, I'm reading Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. I read the Mortal Instruments series. Clockwork Angel is a prequel to the MI series. Some familiar names and faces have shown up already and I'm only on chapter 10. So far, I'm liking this story better than the original ones. Hopefully it will continue to deliver.
