Torment: Fallen series book 2 by Lauren Kate

This will be my first post via phone and wireless internet, please excuse the typo errors, so tedious!

Ok, i just finished reading Torment, book 2 of the highly acclaimed New York Best Seller book by Lauren Kate. It carry on with the love story of star-crossed lovers Daniel and Luce.

Luce is now placed in Shoreline, a school for Nephilim kids who will someday will choose a side between heaven or hell. But this time Daniel is mostly out of the picture, he’s outside protecting Luce from the Outcasts who wanted her. At first we think that they wanted her dead, but in the end they revealed that they wanted her to open the gates of heaven for them. I guess that’s too much info for those who haven’t read this yet.

Fallen: The Event, Lauren Kate Live in Manila

On my way home, I can’t help but noticing the huge poster of Fallen and Lauren Kate in Glorieta National Bookstore’s glass wall. Lauren Kate, the renowned author of Fallen series is coming to town, yey!

Fallen: The Event will be held on November 27, 2010, 5PM at Atrium,┬áThe Podium, brought to us by National Bookstore. To get invites, you first need to buy a copy of lauren Kate’s books Fallen and/or Torment in National Bookstore until the event proper. You could find a paper at the back and that will serve as your invitation.

There’s also a chance that Lauren Kate will sign books depending on the number of participants. If many showed up, the names will be raffled and only those will get their books signed. As for me, I don’t know if I could attend since my Lauren Kate book’s are bought in Fully Booked or Powerbooks and I do not want to buy another copy. But then I wanted to see her still, I’m a big fan of YA authors.

I just wish that they’ll also get Becca Fitzpatrick here in Manila and I’ll be 100% sure in my attendance.

And also because I was intrigued by the other readers comments. But as i say, mainly for a love story.

I have to admit I was totally bored with this book. That was the initial reaction.
