Waiting on Wednesday (3)

Fallen - Lauren Kate
Delacorte - December 8th, 2009

Seventeen-Year-Old Luce is a new student at Sword & Cross, an unwelcoming boarding/reform school in Savannah, Georgia. Luce’s boyfriend died under suspicious circumstances, and now she carries the guilt over his death with her as she navigates the unfriendly halls at Sword & Cross, where every student seems to have an unpleasant—even evil—history.

It’s only when she sees Daniel, a gorgeous fellow student, that Luce feels there’s a reason to be here—though she doesn’t know what it is. And Daniel’s frosty cold demeanor toward her? It’s really a protective device that he’s used again . . . and again. For Daniel is a fallen angel, doomed to fall in love with the same girl every 17 years . . . and watch her die. And Luce is a fellow immortal, cursed to be reincarnated again and again as a mortal girl who has no idea of who she really is.
Wow! Just listen to the premise of that; beautiful yet tragic, with elements of the paranormal thrown in. And a beautiful cover to boot!

What are you waiting on, this Wednesday?

I knowww. This sounds so good, but I'm a little worried cuz Lauren Kate has another book coming out a month before this one that's received mixed reviews. Oh well, still intrigued to read this one!
