Book Review: Teardrop – Lauren Kate

 Teardrop (Teardrop, #1)
Never, ever cry…Seventeen-year-old Eureka won’t let anyone close enough to feel her pain.  After her mother was killed in a freak accident, the things she used to love hold no meaning.  She wants to escape, but one thing holds her back:  Ander, the boy who is everywhere she goes, whose turquoise eyes are like the ocean.  And then Eureka uncovers an ancient tale of romance and heartbreak, about a girl who cried and entire continent into the sea.  Suddenly her mother’s death and Ander’s appearance seems connected, and her life takes on a dark undercurrents that don’t make sense.  Can everything you love be washed away?

2/5 stars (it was ok)

I really wanted to like this book.  The cover is beautiful and it sounded very interesting.  I just did not care for the characters and didn’t find the actual story that interesting.  Ander doesn’t seem that caring and not very likeable.  And Eureka (what kind of a name was that) is whiny and selfish.  Overall the book was okay but I won’t be reading any more from the series.
