If you don’t know what I’m referring to, see the movie trailer and maybe my reviews for context 🙂
Fallen (Fallen #1) by Lauren Kate
What if the person you were meant to be with could never be yours?
17-year-old Lucinda falls in love with a gorgeous, intelligent boy, Daniel, at her new school, the grim, foreboding Sword & Cross . . . only to find out that Daniel is a fallen angel, and that they have spent lifetimes finding and losing one another as good & evil forces plot to keep them apart.
Get ready to fall . . .
A few years ago, my best friend and I bonded over Twilight. Of course, respecting her tastes, I asked her for recommendations. She suggested Fallen. Flash forward a year or so, and I download it onto my iPad and stay up all night (unheard of, for me!) and loooved the story.
Then in 2014, Lauren Kate shares with us that the movie adaption is being produced. We were so excited!
Let’s play Spot the Difference!
2 years later, and it’s aired in random non-English speaking countries like Italy and Asian countries. Which I have nothing against– but wouldn’t an English published book that has been made using the English language, premiere in English speaking nations?!?
I began to give up hope, and so did many fans. Just go to Lauren Kate’s Facebook page. Thousands are frustrated that we have yet to see the movie. The series is no longer hot and popular in YA trends. It’s all leading to a failure. Which is nothing any of us want.
I know it’s not Lauren Kate’s fault. But she could address why she keeps teasing her predominantly English-speaking fans for over 3 years, with a movie adaption.
Apparently 2017 is finally the year we will see Fallen screen in America (September 8th– I had no idea how soon it was premiering!) and the UK. Which means probably next year it will be for countries like mine (Australia) who will screen 3 months behind.
