one of the most beautiful and breathtaking covers ever However, the actual book couldn t bedifferent 17 year old Eureka never cries, not even at her own beloved mum s funeral, who died at a freak accident Eureka was with her in that car when it happened, but the next thing she knows she s laying in the hospital bed Why did she survive and not her mum How The things she used to love hold no meaning any She wants to escape But then she meet Ander The mysterious boy who is everywhere she goes, whose eyes take her breath away Then Eureka uncovers an ancient tale of romance, heartbreak and a city waiting beneath the waves Will it rise again Is Eureka the key to restoration.or destruction First impressions are sometimes fetal in the book world, in my occasion almost always For those who don t know, or have yet to realize, Teardrop is the 1st book in Lauren Kate s new trilogy she is the author of the best selling Fallen series.I have not read the Fallen series yet, so this was my first encounter with Mrs Kate, and i am NOT IMPRESSED to put it kindly There were so many bad things about Teardrop I don t even know where to start From the beginning it s the guy s POV Ander , and we can see that he has some serious stalker issues with Eureka To me he seemed kindaobsessedHe has been watching her since before he or she could speak They have never spoke She was his life.He had to kill herSo Ander also has to choose between saving the world, or saving the girl Guess what he chooses The.Girl Naturally.That happens a lot in YA books, but i don t think the authors realize that if the dude chooses the girl over the world, SHE WILL DIE ANYWAY Because if the world will be gone or something, she and everyone else will go down with it The Characters Eureka I thought i ll very much connect with her, it seemed we had quite a bit in common But nope Truth be told i didn t care if she died the next page I didn t like her I could not connect with her.I thought she was a shallow and very undeveloped protagonist Ander Excuse me i still don t know who the fuck you are WHAT IS THE POINT OF YOUR EXISTENCE Like I didn t really learn anything about Ander I didn t like him, though at times i admit he could be rathersweet Brooks I think he is my favorite character Brooks is Eureka s oldest and bestest friend He was supportive, very charming, fun and just lovable I wouldn t mind if someone put him in a box, wrapped him up and gave to me as a present cough The Romance One of what seems like many reasons this book was a 1 star read This definitely makes the top 5 most cliche, unrealistic and ridiculous love triangles romance books i have readHis tongue traced the tip of her tongue She arched her back This feels he said She nodded so rightTINY SPOILER ALERT nothing important That quote is when Eureka and Brooks had their first kiss They feel its right, yeah But guess what Like a day or 2 later Eureka is all like it didn t feel right anyway when Ander is near by And then she changes again to the feels right mood The romance was EXTREMELY rushed She went from one guy to the next before i could even say Knife and your head bitch I could not feel ANY chemistry either between her and Ander or Brooks I HATE when the authors think their audience isn t as smart as they are It created an impression like this was the case with Teardrop, as i had, like, 95% of the twist plot figured out from the middle half of the book IT WAS PREDICTABLE I felt like the author either thought no one would be as smart as her to figure it out, or she really thought it was unpredictable and had some real twists in the story that would shock her readers to the bones Teardrop is a big book, guys Possesses over 400 pages And i promise you NEARLY NOTHING HAPPENED It was just dragging on insignificantly I was FIGHTING with my self to keep on reading and not DNF it so i was put out of my misery But i finished Skipped most of the last couple of pagesbut finished nonetheless Do you know what the book was the ENTIRE way CONFUSING I did not, and still don t understand about 80% of what happened and about 90% of it all in general It was WEIRD Every chapter i m all like Overall I m disappointed The only good thing about this book were the ever so tiny glimpses of mythology which i LOVED with all my heart.I expected everything opposite what i really got.However, i must give Mrs Kate some credit, as it is hard to write a very good book.BUT Sincerely The Critic.

    I m grateful for many things in life, including the fact that most of YA fiction is in fact, fiction Because thankfully, my fate and that of the world will never rest in the hands of a teenaged boy who thinks with his dick The choice was simpler than that Save the world, or save the girl. Guess which choice the boy makes Ding ding ding, winner winner chicken dinner Because pussy will win out against humanity and common sense every single time.This book was not bad It was simply generic T I m grateful for many things in life, including the fact that most of YA fiction is in fact, fiction Because thankfully, my fate and that of the world will never rest in the hands of a teenaged boy who thinks with his dick The choice was simpler than that Save the world, or save the girl. Guess which choice the boy makes Ding ding ding, winner winner chicken dinner Because pussy will win out against humanity and common sense every single time.This book was not bad It was simply generic The premise behind it is one of the lost island of Atlantis, and honestly, that wasn t even a major part of the story The mythology and what was supposed to be the major plotline in the book that of Eureka and her mysterious destiny was simply overshadowed by a large amount of angst, drama, and copious amounts of insta love, love triangles, and stalking.This book just blends in with every other YA contemporary fantasy paranormal works out there The plot behind it is a little different,refreshing than that of your generic angel fairies vampires werewolves witches whatever, but the premise behind it is the same As are the characters Simply put, I could not pick Eureka out of a lineup of 100 other YA PNRs heroines out there She is a heroine made from a cookie cutter.The Plot We start off knowing a boy, Ander, has been watching over Eureka her whole life She and her mother are driving across a bridge, they should be dead before crossing it Against his family s wishes, against common senseAnder saves the girl Her mother, Diana dies Over a year later, Eureka is still in mourning, recovering from a suicide attempt, all the while pushing away everyone she loves She meets Ander as he rear ends her, leaving no insurance information, getting her in trouble nice All of a sudden, Ander starts popping up all over the damn place Her best friend Brooks is acting strange Her mother leaves her some mysterious objects and a notebook in an indecipherable language What is the mystery behind Ander What does the notebook say Will Eureka ever stop sulking Who will turn out to be Eureka s love of her life Oh, and there s something about Atlantis.The setting the writing No complaints with either I loved the Louisiana setting, and the writing is solidly in line with the story It is not spectacular, and it tends towards the overdramatic where Eureka is concerned, but it was easy to read, and never overly purple prosy The writing made the book an easy, quick read.The characters Underwhelming.Eureka I m glad she is not special in an Why, little ole me Pshaw sort of way I m glad she doesn t mention how ordinary she is only to have half the school fall in love with her I m glad she is an average, sullen teenager I m glad she has her flaws, but there is nothing in her personality, that makes me empathize with her, that makes me like her, that makes her stand out Eureka is bland The only thing that distinguishes her from other heroines I ve read is her name A book can be made or broken based on the strengths of the characters and their development, their complexity, and Eureka is dull and stereotypical.I understand her sullenness I understand her grief I wanted her to grow from it I wanted her to grow beyond that I wanted her to become extraordinary, to distinguish herself, to reach out from beyond her grief and anger Eureka does not reach any sort of high standards for me She is Bella Swan, comatose with sorrow after Edward leaves She does not grow She gives up before she even tries.The only thing that makes her feel anything is a boy she can barely remember meeting That angers me so much It doesn t bother me that Eureka tries to commit suicide, I understand it, I sympathize with it It bothers me that she finds nothing in life worthwhile, not her friends, not her old hobbies, not her familyuntil she meets a boy That is so utterly foolish to me Eureka is an atrocious friend She is a terrible daughter I just about stood up in my chair and cheered when her best friend finally confronted Eureka about all her bullshitteryYou keep Cat around because she doesn t notice when you tune her out You can t stand anyone in your familyYou re certain every therapist you go to is an idiot You ve pushed away all of Evangeline because there s no way anyone could ever understand what you ve been through He stopped pacing and looked straight at her Then there s me Eureka s chest ached as if he d punched her in the heart What about you You use me No I m not your friend I m a sounding board for your anxiety and depressionI really could not have analyzed Eureka and her apathy towards life any better than her best friend, Brooks, did Needless to say, Brooks is my favorite character in the book, by far.Ander Your typical teenaged stalker Ander makes Edward Cullen seem like a nice, personable young man who gives the woman he loves such a thing as personal space Ander is a fucking stalker, man He even refers to himself as one What do you call someone who s been watching Eureka for her entire life, literally since the moment she was born What do you call someone who shows up EVERYWHERE Eureka happens to beThat s why you never knew about me I have watched you since you were born, but you never saw me until I wanted you to the day I hit your car I ve been with you every day for the past seventeen years I watched you learn to walk, to tie your shoes, to play the guitar he swallowed to kiss I watched you get your ears pierced, fail your driver s test, and win your first cross country raceThe rest of the characters are tropes We have the bitter, past her prime bitch of a stepmother who is out to get Eureka every chance she gets If you look up evil stepmother, in the dictionary, you will find Rhoda s picture There is no redeeming quality for her, none Rhoda is so pure one dimensional bitchiness that it is unbelievable I havesympathy for her father, who redefines spineless He cannot stand up to his first wife, Diana He can barely hold his own with his second wife, Rhoda Forget about dealing with his teenaged daughterEureka s dad is a spineless shell of a man I find him a sad, tragic character.The other prominent females in the book are whores against the virginal goodness of sweet, innocent hardly been kissed Eureka We have Cat, the awesome token black best friend, who is duh hypersexual, because black girls aren t already sexualized enough in the media these days Cat slips onto a minidress that she keeps in her trunk to walk across a track field She flirts with anything that has a penis Cat sexualizes everything, despite her prowess on the track, despite her 2390 SAT scores I am so sick of the oversexualized best friend And then we have Maya, a roller derbyof a goddess, who is a whore and a bitch, who hangs onto Brooks like he s completely virginal , who hates Eureka for no reason at all Of course, Maya is the ho, and Brooks is just simply the poor unwilling lad whose leg she just happens to be leg humping Brooks is completely innocent in all of this Fucking please.The Romance Insta love Love Triangle Adultery.The love triangle cheating is considerably less annoying than the head bashing instances of insta love Eureka falls so fucking hard for Anders, despite the fact that she knows she shouldn t Despite the fact that he lies to her Despite the fact that he stalks her The second time she meets Ander, he pretty much tackles her poor best friend out of no fucking where Then Ander lurched forward, his arm shooting over Eureka s head He grabbed Brooks by the neck of his T shirt How long have you been with her How long Eureka shrank between them, startled by the outburst What was Ander talking about She should do something to defuse the situation But whatTotally normal behavior And whose fault is it that Ander attacks Brooks unprovoked Why, all Brooks, of course Eureka pivoted to look him in the eye Why were you so hostile to him Me Brooks flattened a hand against his chest Are you serious He I You were standing over me like some possessive older brother You could have introduced yourselfWHAT NO Get your head on straight, girl There are so many instances of stalking, of irrational, dangerous, threatening behavior Eureka questions why she s so in love with this guy who lies to her He is suspicious He is weird Eureka tells her instincts to shut the fuck up and leave her alone She didn t know why she was defending Ander He d lied about Brooks, admitted to spying on her, made vague threats about her being in danger It might be enough to press charges, but it seemed wrong What Ander had said wasn t what was dangerous about him What was dangerous about him was the way he made her feel emotionally out of control. Get your fucking priorities straight.I really would not recommend this book unless you don t mind reading something you ve probably read 100 times over There is nothing to distinguish this book from any other YA PNR out there Nothing Go reread Twilight, I mean it

    Review also at put it straight this book is as dull as dirt So what a boring book I was intrigued by the idea of someone having the power to cry a whole land into the sea Then I pictured them crying all our continents in the sea due to global warming. view spoiler It s basically a legend about Atlantis which i was disappointed about and how long ago two girls loved one man and when they were separated she cried Atlantis into the sea Eureka t Review also at put it straight this book is as dull as dirt So what a boring book I was intrigued by the idea of someone having the power to cry a whole land into the sea Then I pictured them crying all our continents in the sea due to global warming. view spoiler It s basically a legend about Atlantis which i was disappointed about and how long ago two girls loved one man and when they were separated she cried Atlantis into the sea Eureka turned out to be a descendant of Atlantis and it turned out a lot though not all of women in her line carry Selene s Tearline which means if they cry Atlantis will rise again It turned out that throughout the generations the fallen atlanteans which no one can locate not even the seedbearers have been able to project their consciousness and possess people who are close to the tearline women in hopes of upsetting them and making them cry which will bring atlantis back Then there s Ander who is a seedbearer another escaped line from atlantis who are all connected by a higher wind power known as the zephyr oh and they all have gills somewhere on their torsos to breathe underwater The seedbearers see it upon themselves to carry forward the seed of atlantis knowledge but also prevent the evils of atlantis from rising again They saw it as the apocalypse if atlantis was to rise because according to the story atlantis was an evil place So to stop the possibility of atlantis rising they kill every girl with the tearline but failed to kill eureka because ander saved her out of his love for her while also defying all he was led to believe and his family In the end eureka does cry due to all the bad things that happened to her and her whole world floods She and her friends then go in search of a lost seedbearer who left the family ages ago as it seems its up to eureka to stop the atlantean king The book ends with Brooks eurekas best friend who is possessed by the atlantean king hide spoiler The trouble for me about this book was the fact that it started off so strong I mean opening it from Anders point of view and giving a hint tomysterious elements was pretty exciting But things just went down from there The style of writing and plot was just so uneventful and tedious, it was quite a struggle to get through this book Most of this book up until about 100 pages from the end is just about Eureka s daily life Even when things start happening and answers are revealed, it s still boring and unexciting For me this just read like a long cheesy average everyday romance.That gets me onto the characters. yeah bottom line I hated them all I mean Ander was as annoying and infuriating as fuck just everything about him from his insta love with eureka and his mysterious dismissive attitude just annoyed the hell out of me But any annoyance I have for ander is minuscule compared to Eureka I really dislike these naive love struck submissive YA heroines who refuse to properly stand up for themselves Eureka hardly stood up to anyone who pushed her around or was unreasonable to her I mean come on girl you must have some spark of pride inside you No I guess the author didn t grant you even a sliver of dignity sigh which is the reason these characters didn t feel real to me and why I couldn t connect to them I would recommend this book to those who prefer their romances on the cheesy side coz did I mention that this book had some of the most cheesiest romance lines I ve ever read

    Source I own a copy of this book why, oh why, oh why Eureka doesn t cry, not ever, even when her mother dies But she s about to find out that she s something awesome So I didn t really like Fallen , but since I ve had some luck with sequels recently, I decided to give Lauren Kate another chance and read Teardrop I really shouldn t have bothered.Eureka was such a whiny character I got so sick of her moaning so quickly She was just irritating, and whiny, and couldn t seem to make up her Source I own a copy of this book why, oh why, oh why Eureka doesn t cry, not ever, even when her mother dies But she s about to find out that she s something awesome So I didn t really like Fallen , but since I ve had some luck with sequels recently, I decided to give Lauren Kate another chance and read Teardrop I really shouldn t have bothered.Eureka was such a whiny character I got so sick of her moaning so quickly She was just irritating, and whiny, and couldn t seem to make up her mind about anything I really wanted her to just quit her moaning and shut the hell up.The storyline was just dull I will say that this is possiblyto do with wrong book wrong person, but this book seriously tested my resolve to finish this book I was bored, really bored, right from the beginning, and nothing about this book really captured my attention When things were revealed within the plot I didn t find them exciting or impressing, the characters came out with the cheesiest lines, and the whole thing was predictable and unbelievable Then when we found out some of the biggest secrets, they were just pants.The ending was also just as bad I couldn t quite believe what I was reading, and I really didn t like it We were also left with a dreaded cliff hanger Needless to say that I won t be reading the next book in the series.Overall boring and cheesy.2.5 out of 10

    I have to say that Teardrop is a GREAT book I have been on the fence about reading this because I loved The Fallen Series and no one can take the place of Daniel and Cam but in Teardrop we have Ander and Brooks and whole lot of mythology going on I love reading stories about Atlantis and the underwater world This books prehistory prologue started out strong and the book for me got stronger The ending had me screaming because I neededI needed about three chaptersbut I will have to I have to say that Teardrop is a GREAT book I have been on the fence about reading this because I loved The Fallen Series and no one can take the place of Daniel and Cam but in Teardrop we have Ander and Brooks and whole lot of mythology going on I love reading stories about Atlantis and the underwater world This books prehistory prologue started out strong and the book for me got stronger The ending had me screaming because I neededI needed about three chaptersbut I will have to wait to see what happens.Can you imagine being told all your life you could not cry Man I think I would die because crying is a natural part of life but for Eureka she can t cry because her mother told her she couldn t Then an accident takes Eurekas mother and she is left all alone except for her best friend Brooks and a few trinkets her mother has left behind Plus Eureka has Ander who is a little weird because he tells her things and she just doesn t believe them But in all Ander s weirdness what he has told Eureka so far has been the truth and she is learning to trust him.Armed with what her mother left her which was a locket, letter, stone, and ancient book Eureka must figure out why her mother left her all this stuff She will have to figure out what these things do but she will learn that everyone around her is not who they are and things are definitely about to get strange for Eureka and she will have to follow her heart Who will she love Who will be there for her She will see just how much Brooks loves her and how much they mean to one another She will also learn how much Ander loves her and how much he is willing to sacrifice to save her from the evil that lurks below
