This week's Waiting on Wednesday pick is...

Title: Rapture
Author: Lauren Kate
Publisher: Delacorte Books
Release Date: June 12, 2012
Pages: 432
Series: Fallen #4

In Rapture, the highly anticipated fourth and final novel in the Fallen series, Luce and Daniel are together . . . but for how long? Can history be rewritten? Or are some punishments eternal?

Ooooohhh.... OK guys, so you have NO IDEA how long I've been waiting to see this cover or how badly I want to get my hands on this book. You might also not know that it is for all the wrong reasons...

Basically, I have a love-hate relationship with Lauren Kate's Fallen series. I've read and reviewed the first three, and have been waiting to see what the cover for the fourth-- and last-- installment would look like.And here it finally is!

Why is it a love-hate relationship? Well, I have a soft spot for this series because Fallen was the very first book I ever reviewed on my blog (awww!) and so I had to continue with the story, despite it being mediocre at best. Now, in my personal opinion, this is not actually a good series. I think that the writing is terrible, the story is ridiculous and makes zero sense, and the relationship between Luce and Daniel is unhealthy and kind of twisted. So why do I continue to read them and then rant about them, you may be wondering???

I honestly have no idea, I just do. I find them incredibly amusing and entertaining and yes, I occasionally read a badly written book so that I can get my frustrations out and rant about it-- there, I said it. BUT I always state something I liked about that book, and I never bash anything without solid reasons for doing so. Lauren, I love you, seriously.

But yes I am absolutely looking forward to Rapture, and if you like this series, please don't be insulted, it is just my personal opinion, and hey, I think they're bad in a good way! In fact, I'm probably the most dedicated non-fan of this series out there. It's a guilty pleasure, if you will. And who knows? Maybe I'll love the last one!

So bring it on, Lauren Kate!

Yours truly,



  1. RAPTURE looks absolutely gorgeous! >:) I've yet to get my hands on the series, but I've been doubting myself since I've seen so much negative reviews. :p

  2. I don't know why my post wasn't posted. Anyway, this book is just gorgeous and stunning just like the rest of series! I'm not much of a Fallen series fan, but the cover is just beautiful! Love it!

    Cheers, April

  3. I saw this cover when it got released, and it's so gorgeous. I am excited for Rapture, especially by how Passion ended.

    I am a big fan of this series. I know not everyone likes it.

  4. I still haven't read Fallen but the covers are pretty!

  5. This is my WoW as well! And I completely understand your love-hate relationship. I know that these books are terrible (sorry to any fans out there!) but I get some sort of twisted guilty pleasure in them at the same time! I did find that Passion was a little better then its predecessors though! (Or maybe my love is starting to outweigh my hate! lol)

    My WoW

  6. I feel that way about most paranormal romance books. It's guilty pleasure!
    I can't help but roll my eyes at them and yet *some* of 'em are really fun to read!
    I haven't read the Fallen series and I doubt I will!
    Check out my WOW

  7. I've been there. Some books I just have to know what is going to happen even if it is completely awful. I just can't help it! I haven't read this series, and probably won't, but I do love the gorgeous covers for it :)

    My WoW

  8. I am still behind in this series..I still need to read the third book!! But I love this cover :)

    Check out my waiting on Wednesday!

  9. I've read the first two books in the series and I loved the first book. The second book was just okay and I haven't even read the third one. I did not like the cover of the third one at all! So I'm happy they kind of went back to the way they did the first two covers for this one!

  10. Mmmmmmm I'm looking forward to this book because I just want the series to be over, and I want to know how it's all going to end. Either way, I'll read it :)

  14. I hadn't seen this cover yet. It's beautiful!

  15. At first I was really torn about this cover. I wasn't sure if I liked it. However, it has really grown on my and now I am excited about the book.
