Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy

{April 10, 2014}   {Review} Last Day of Love: A Teardrop Story (Teardrop #0.5)

Last Day of LoveFrom Goodreads: Don’t miss this beautiful original digital story by Lauren Kate, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Fallen series, set in the romantic world of Teardrop, a place of  devastating secrets and dark magic . . . a world where everything you love can be washed away.


This is a very short look into the life of Andre, the main male character in Teardrop. I haven’t read more than the first few pages of the full novel, but it definitely sparked my interest and I became interested in Ander, so I grabbed this short story to see what I could find out while I wait for my copy of Teardrop from the library.

It’s very interesting. I like this group of people, the Seedbearers, though I don’t like that they are so secretive and expect Andres to give up everything of his past, including his dog(!) in order to join their ranks. And I love that he really doesn’t give in like he’s supposed to. I can see a big storm coming down on all their heads because Andres doesn’t follow the rules, he doesn’t forget Eureka, and this looks like Teardrop is going to be my kind of story.

This is just a story, so it’s too short to really begin making connections, but it’s piqued my interest and I’m definitely in want of the full story. Kate is a very talented writer.  Three stars.
