I think this book and what I'm feeling can be surmised in two words: Da fuck?!?

I literally have no clue in hell what just happened.

Like, I truly think I have just lost some brain cells after finishing that.

It’s not that this is a bad storyline or even that it’s written badly (though isn’t the best, either), but it’s the fact that I literally have no idea what just happened.

Maybe I should put a spoiler warning with this post, but, quite honestly, I don’t think the things I’m going t

I hate this book so much.
Ok. Ooookaaaayyyy. My first one-star review. Let's do this.



It is the SECOND book in the series, meaning that by now, I should be attached to the characters. But I'm not. I don't care about Brooks, I don't care about Ander, I don't care about Cat, or Solon, or the dad, or Atlas, or Selene, or Atlantis, or the twins, and I REALLY REALLY REALLY DO NOT CARE ABOUT EUREKA

I don't like her either. She's such an emo: depressing, pessimistic, suici

What a disappointment! The first book was well-paced, great story, very well written. This was dark, weird, and hard to follow. I kept reading to see if it improved, and it never did.
What the hell just happened? I don't even understand what happened in this book. First 50% were slow and boring, but after that it was like I started completely different book. I was in dilemma to give it two stars just for interesting ending, but there was too much random shit

And she feels no closer to facing Atlas or saving the world when Solon lets slip that love is Ander’s weakness, and that any affection he feels toward her makes him age faster.

First of all, I didn't know that the Teardrop series was going to be a duology. It's kinda stupid, I love long series, like Fallen for example.

The beginning of Waterfall was slow... It was hard to read, but slowly things were happening and it became more interesting.

Book was quite boring, ending was awesome!
Okay, I rarely give out bad reviews to books that I absolutely love the first in the series, so I will explain my review here but it will have spoilers after this point.

Firstly, this book had a great premise. It was expected that our lead had risen Atlantis, I honestly expected much more imagery and underwater adventure. What I ended up with was that the adventure was now about how we can undo this. They were in limbo the entire book, Atlantis not completely risen, the world just waiting for it

I felt like i was forcing myself to read this book :( excuse review if it has weird pronouns like 'you' when referring to Eureka

I was wavering between giving this book a two or a three. it was so hard to decide but I gave it a 2. though the rating is rounded up and I wish I could have given it a solid 2.5.

to be honest this book was a complete let down. I was utterly disappointed by the ending. it was horrible.
the start of the book, was ok, and that's nice. I'm sure there are people who would sa
Out of all the things I expected from this series--a robot, holograms, and experiments were not one of them. I might write a proper review for this later, but the best way to describe this sequel was weird. It felt oddly different from the first novel, and not in a good way at all. The first in the series, Teardrop felt like a pretty typical YA Paranormal, but I felt like the author didn't quite know where she was going with this one, which translated into a confused, garbled novel without prope ...more
Eureka's tears have flooded the earth and now Atlantis is rising, along with its evil king, Atlas. Eureka is the only one who can stop him - but first she must learn how to fight.

She travels across the ocean with Ander to try and make sense of the dark world her sorrow has created. But dark secrets are hidden in the depths - will she be strong enough to defeat Atlas, or is her broken heart just what he needs to power his rising kingdom?

Eureka has the chance to save the world. But she'll have to

Just... Wow! I HATED Waterfall! And although it wasn't as good as the books in the Fallen series, I still really enjoyed Teardrop. Mostly just for the romance between Ander and Eureka. I did like Brooks, what we did get to see of the real him. Although he spent most of the time in both books already controlled by Atlas, and we didn't get to know him much before that. I cared absolutely nothing for a single other character, and although some parts of the mythology were interesting, for the most p ...more

I have to say that this is probably my favourite book by Lauren Kate. It enjoyed it a lot, but I can't get around the fact that I find Lauren's writing a bit confusing at times, incoherent even.
SJH (A Dream of Books)
This is the second book in the series following last year's opening instalment 'Teardrop'. I have to say that I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first book. I got quite confused about what was going on, particularly in the second half of the story and I found the pace very slow. I put this one down and picked it up again several times before I actually managed to finish the whole thing. I am disappointed because I was so looking forward to reading it and had such high hopes about it that I f ...more
I think that the real question after I finished this book is "What the f***?" I can't say whether I like it or not. I have never read something like this. This book caused mixed feelings in me, I love the first book but this one, I just don't know what happened. Where's my happy ending? Or this is a happy ending? I have too many questions, and basically no answers. I find this book a little boring but on the other side, I've never read something like this. I hope they'll make a movie out of this ...more

This book was so far-fetched ... I don't even know how to feel about all the weirdness! How do you ... What did she ... Why would I ... Was Lauren Kate on some kind of medication when she wrote this? That would explain a lot. At first I was like 'yeah okay, weird, but maybe three stars' but the second half is just like nope nope nope two stars for you.

And I swear to you that feeling of bees crawling at the base of my skull will never leave me.

"If you could love yourself the way I love you, you would be invincible."

So I'd been looking forward to reading this duology for quite some time now and even though the concept was very intriguing because Atlantis is a topic that is something I'm usually interested in considering the myths surrounding the lost city, it was not something that exceeded my expectations. In fact, I felt like I had been expecting too much. Because I'm a huge fan of the Fallen Series, I'd thought I would love this

I wasn't a fan of the first book, however I was willing to give the sequel a go because I quite liked and enjoyed Lauren Kate's Fallen series so I 'hoped' the sequel would redeem the series for me.

Though with that being said, while the series most definitely has a unique concept and one that was quite well thought out, however I'm still not a fan of this series and to be honest with you, as much as I like the author's writing style . . . it just wasn't enough for me to like and connect with the

I've been reading this for at least 2 weeks now and I've only managed to read 30%. I really wanted to like this, and for it to redeem Teardrop, which only picked up towards the end but it just isn't. I loved this author's previous work, however I'm just getting more and more bored with this book. I don't know what it is about this series, but I feel really disconnected and the fact that I put it down and forgot about it (reading 7 other books before I picked it back up again) means I'm probably ...more
Waterfall was just as good as Teardrop, but also much better.

Eureka and Ander's story continues, and family and close friends get a lot more involved.

I read Waterfall in a day, and I enjoyed every moment of it.

I thought the plot was a lot better than Teardrop's one, and I was hooked the whole time. However, I read the ending in a haze, not quite comprehending what happened. (view spoiler)

Overall, I really enjoyed Waterfall, and I can't wai
I loved Lauren Kate's Fallen series so I decided to start reading her new Teardrop series. I enjoyed Teardrop so I continued on with Waterfall but the whole time I just wanted it to end.
The whole story just really confused me. I couldn't understand what was happening and I had to keep flipping back pages so I could remember what was happening. I was just totally confused the whole time.
I also couldn't connect to any of the characters. The only thing I liked about this novel was Ander, who I wi

I loved the first book! What happened? :'(
I'll be honest. I just couldn't get into this book. I felt like there were so many strange and unjustified things that happened that made absolutely no sense and I felt like the ending was one of those 'and then I woke up' endings. I love Lauren Kate's writing style, but some of this just struggled to attract my attention.
DNF @ 16%

I haven't been a huge fan of the first book but I still thought the premise was quite interesting so I wanted to continue the series.

It's been about 3 years since I have read the book and I hardly remember anything. I really had trouble getting back into the story and it couldn't hold my interest either.

The progress up to this point was rather slow and boring and there was nothing which made me want to continue with the book. I couldn't connect with the characters either and I am not in

Okay so I just finished 'Waterfall' and I'm kinda thinking what the hell!? But to start I didn't hate it I liked both 'Teardrop' and 'Waterfall'. I really liked the unique story and concepts and I've never personally read a book like this. when I started 'Teardrop' I had a really hard time getting into it because I seriously disliked Eureka but then I grew to love/hate her for she is unlike most female protagonist in YA. So when I got 'Waterfall' I was really looking forward to learning more abo ...more
