Welcome To My Blog

Welcome to my blog! I invite you to enter into the splendiferous world of the library where I will share my knowledge and love of books I have read, as well as send out praise to the authors of these treasures. Most of the books reviewed on my site will be Teen or YA Sci-Fi/Fantasy, though every now and then I'll throw in an adult book just to shake things up.

Torment by Lauren Kate

From GoodReads: How many lives do you need to live before you find someone worth dying for? In the aftermath of what happened at Sword & Cross, Luce has been hidden away by her cursed angelic boyfriend, Daniel, in a new school filled with Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans. Daniel promises she will be safe here, protected from those who would kill her. At the school Luce discovers what the Shadows that have followed her all her life mean - and how to manipulate them to see into her other lives. Yet the more Luce learns about herself, the more she realizes that the past is her only key to unlocking her future...and that Daniel hasn't told her everything. What if his version of the past isn't actually the way things happened...what if Luce was really meant to be with someone else?

I really, really wish that I could rave on and on about this book, I mean, I had been expecting to rave about this book.  Fallen was so amazing and wildly original that I was anticipating Torment to be AMAZING!!!
Boy, was I let down.  It is my honest opinion that this book was basically just Fallen all over again, only this time on the West Coast.  I was highly disappointed in it.  Although, I will say that I am not giving up on this series.  With the little smidges of clues that Ms. Kate gave us in Fallen and Torment, I expect all the answers to just explode in the third book, Passion, due out next spring.
