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!
