Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Title: Teardrop by Lauren Kate
Series: 1st in the Teardrop series
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Release Date: October 22nd 2013

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. From Lauren Kate comes an epic saga of heart-stopping romance, devastating secrets, and dark magic . . . a world where everything you love can be washed away. in all honestly this books sounds like it may be pretty stupid. BUT I can't help it...I am excited for it! I hated Fallen by Lauren I am really hoping this will be much better. The cover is just so pretty!

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?

Awesome pick! This cover is just stunning! I wasn't a huge fan of her Fallen series, but I'm willing to give her another chance with this one...mostly because the cover is so gorgeous. Yeah, I judge books by their covers lol

Sad to hear you didn't like Fallen, I read it like 3 years ago and i was just starting to read YA and I loved it. Haven't re-read because i might not have the same feels BUT i'm hoping this one IS better than the fallen series. But yeah i think i only wanted this one because of the dress too :P

-Interesting WoW pick Haley!
