Fallen by Lauren Kate

Love picking good books :) Disney has optioned for Fallen by Lauren Kate - new 4 book series - Fallen is the first one - they've opted to take all 4 books before they even come out lol! This would definitely make a good movie!!

Author Notes:

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.

My Notes:

Ok Yes the bookcover is what caught my eye - Loved it! Now I just got done reading it - omgosh I couldn't put it down. Luce character has so many oddities that seem to happen and you can't put them together til the end when it just opens up and swarms you with info that you were not expecting. Each character plays a role in the book, and yes I almost wanted to reread it - like re-watching a movie to see what I might have missed. It did hold me all the way through to the end where the author finally gives away the big secret and then hangs you by the thread waiting for the next one to come out... I hate major cliffhangers but for this one I'll wait eagerly.
