Weekend Book Giveaway: Teardrop

Did you know that Lauren Kate (author of the Fallen series) has a brand new series coming out?!

Teardrop is an epic saga of heart-stopping romance, devastating secrets, and dark magic . . . a world where everything you love can be washed away. Never, ever cry... Eureka Boudreaux's mother drilled that rule into her daughter years ago. But now her mother is gone, and everywhere Eureka goes he is there: Ander, the tall, pale blond boy who seems to know things he shouldn't, who tells Eureka she is in grave danger, who comes closer to making her cry than anyone has before. But Ander doesn't know Eureka's darkest secret: ever since her mother drowned in a freak accident, Eureka wishes she were dead, too. She has little left that she cares about, just her oldest friend, Brooks, and a strange inheritance--a locket, a letter, a mysterious stone, and an ancient book no one understands. The book contains a haunting tale about a girl who got her heart broken and cried an entire continent into the sea. Eureka is about to discover that the ancient tale is more than a story, that Ander might be telling the truth . . . and that her life has far darker undercurrents than she ever imagined.

Teardrop doesn't hit the shelves until the 22nd, but we already have 9 people waiting...but you have a chance to get an Advanced Readers Copy next week!

One piece of advice I remember reading that really stood out to me was no one ever gets anything done by waiting.

One piece of advice I try to live by is that people won't remember you for what you've done but how you made them feel. Also, my other favorite piece of advice is just laugh.

One piece of advice I was given was to not take everything so seriously and to live life in the moment.

Someone once told me that you should live your life day by day and try not to dwell on past or future too much. I think that is one of the things that helps me get through the day.

a good piece of advice that I have gotten was to not worry about the small things.

Random Number Generator picked #1, so the book will be going to Alice-Alise Vu at the Mukilteo Library. You should be able to get it from your new teen librarian Melleny tomorrow afternoon :D
