Friday Finds hosted by Should Be Reading asks us to share what great books we heard about or discovered in the past week. While there are many I could post about I always pick one of my favorites.
This week’s find is a book called Fallen by Lauren Kate which I found on Fantastic Fiction. However it is being released by Delacorte Books on December 8, 2009. Not only do I think it sounds great – I don’t know why but I love books that take place in boarding schools, it also has a fantastically dark cover which I love! Here’s a bit about the book from Fantastic Fiction…
Seventeen-Year-Old Luce is a new student at Sword & Cross, an unwelcoming boarding/reform school in Savannah, Georgia. Luce’s boyfriend died under suspicious circumstances, and now she carries the guilt over his death with her as she navigates the unfriendly halls at Sword & Cross, where every student seems to have an unpleasant – even evil – history.
It’s only when she sees Daniel, a gorgeous fellow student, that Luce feels there’s a reason to be here – though she doesn’t know what it is. And Daniel’s frosty cold demeanor toward her? It’s really a protective device that he’s used again . . . and again. For Daniel is a fallen angel, doomed to fall in love with the same girl every 17 years . . . and watch her die. And Luce is a fellow immortal, cursed to be reincarnated again and again as a mortal girl who has no idea of who she really is.
Looks like this might be a must read for me. How about you – what did you find this week?
