Fallen by Lauren Kate

There’s something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.

Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.

Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce–and goes out of his way to make that very clear–she can’t let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her.

I have been on the holds list at the library for this book since March and I FINALLY got it last week! It had been so long since I requested it that I couldn't even remember what it was about. (Sad, huh?) The beginning of this book completely hooked me-- then it was a little slow moving. I really enjoyed the storyline though and although I'm not DYING to read the second one, I am excited to get it (in about another 7 months when my turn comes at the library... haha). 

This is one I would definitely recommend, but I don't know that it'd be for everyone. I know that's not super helpful, but I always hate giving stuff away. I don't want to ruin the experience for you if it's a book that I liked. I don't like starting a book already knowing all about it. Then what's there to discover??

Happy Reading!

(P.S. I don't usually do cover comments, but I LOVED this one. And I was waiting for it to tie in the dress/gloves/long hair-- and it does!)
