“And the sweetest, spellbound feeling spilling from her heart.”

“But paradise is locked and bolted…
We must make a journey around the world
to see if a door has perhaps been left open.”

– Heinrich von Kleist, “On the Puppet Theater

Nicely put, von Kleist. I’m currently reading Fallen, by Lauren Kate, and I’m finding it very enjoyable. It’s a unique story, and it’s one of those “unputdownable” books. I can’t tell you what it’s about, because I wouldn’t do the book justice, but trust me – it’s a good read. And it has a stunning cover, as you can see above, which doesn’t hurt. It’s a series, and fortunately, I have the second part, Torment, right next to me, so I can continue where I leave off right away. Unfortunately, the third part, Passion, isn’t due to come out until june, and then the fourth, I think final, one, Rapture, is set to be released sometime in spring 2010. It’ll be a long wait ’til we find out what happens in the end. Probably worth it though. Yep. Definitely worth it.
