This was a good short read. I liked it. One thing, i felt like she wasnt really herself. She seemed like kind of a clone of her aunt. She made some very important decisions based on what her aunt did with her life. That was the one thing i didnt like

HASH(0xa128e870) out of 5 stars A KindleObsessed Review Feb. 17 2012
By Misty Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've always been fascinated by inspiration. Where does it come from? How do you find it? And once you find it... what in God's name do you do with it? For authors... this is especially meaningful.

We've all heard the stories. "I had a dream and I just couldn't forget it." "I had a conversation with a little girl at a park, and I KNEW I had to write it down." But when it's all said and done, when the girl has stop talking, or you are risen by the sun, the "how" and the "where" are seemingly insignificant, it's what you do with that dream or conversation after you have it that really matters.

Samantha Young, author of "Drip Drop Teardrop" finds her inspiration from music.

Yesterday I was feeling a tad beat down by books, (this happens every once in a while when I slam back 6 or so books in a matter of 3 days), BUT knowing that I needed to post something on the blog, I put all of my, (extremely daunting and unbearably LONG) books to the side and opted for something quick, fun and easy on my head. Now, obviously... I didn't get around to posting a review yesterday anyways, (damn you obligations!) but regardless... I still want to share my thoughts on DDT with you.

When you first start "Drip Drop Teardrop" you are affronted with this statement:

"Dear Reader, I was driving home from work one day on a rainy motorway in Scotland when shuffle on my mp3 player chose the song "Overload" by The Cardigans. As the lyrics and hauntingly creepy but weirdly romantic melody filled my car a story played out in my head. Drop Drop Teardrop, is that story. It's completely different from anything I've ever written before, more lyrical (not surprising since it's inspired by a song), but I had so much fun writing it and hope you do reading it."

Now, naturally... this is the point where I put my Kindle down and started Googling, and after (finally) finding the song (and then listening too it) I couldn't wait to dive in to its 80 page literary rendition.

But first, (just so we are clear) here is what the story is about.

"Avery hasn't had it easy. When she was ten years old her parents died in a car crash. Now nine years later her Aunt Caroline is the only family she has left. And Caroline is dying. So when Death comes knocking (quite literally) in the form of the damaged and dangerous, Brennus, Avery makes a deal with the reaper in order to save Caroline.

Brennus is an Ankou. One of the many, once mortal men and women, who were given the choice to become an immortal in exchange for ferrying the dead over into their afterlife. Nine years ago Brennus took Avery's parents and tried to take Avery, but she fought him and won. Amazed by her strength Brennus followed Avery and has watched over her. Now he knows Avery is the one to offer him freedom from his obligation to the dead. And he'll stop at nothing to have her."

Contrary to what most people have said (because I wouldn't be anything if I wasn't contradictory) I think this story was perfect at 80 pages. Normally I'm a "give me more" girl, but I have a feeling that if Ms. Young would have opted for a full length novel, it wouldn't have been as successful. Why? Because it would have involved WAY too much back-story.

In my opinion, (which obviously is always right. lol) the characters in this story were fairly complex at 80 pages, (Avery is haunted by guilt, and Brennus is haunted by his past actions) and if the story had been slowed down or even plotted out differently, it could have very easily been weighed down by unnecessary self-loathing diatribes. Instead, with Young's choice to restrain her inner novel-ess (yep, totally made that word up) we are allowed to understand their hearts without being handcuffed to them.

As for the plot itself? While is started off a little cheeky, (think girls night out at a bar) it finally smoothed out into a fairly entertaining story, THAT (for the record) left me a little giddy in the end. The "lust" build-up was exactly that... built up, which is a nice change of pace for short reads like this, and there were just enough surprises and angry alpha male moments to keep the pages turning.

Do I think it is the be all end all for juicy novellas? No.. probably not, BUT it did manage to drag me away from "Clever-Clever Land" (aka my head) long enough to breathe and get back on track.

If you like short, sweet and a little (and yes.. I mean a little) naughty... this one might just be the choice for you.

Happy Reading my fellow Kindle-ites and remember: brain vacations are fun...engage in one at least once a week.

HASH(0xa1c08f6c) out of 5 stars A Fabulous Guilty Pleasure Sept. 15 2011
By Mundie Moms & Mundie Kids Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is truly a unique paranormal read that older YA readers will enjoy. Drip Drop Teardrop is quick read that takes readers into a darker world that full of love, sacrifice, sizzling romance and puts a unique spin on the outer world. Similar to Samantha's other books, the two main characters are both enduring, they have an inner strength that draws you to them and leaves you cheering for them in the end.

The story line is simplistic and I really loved the gothic feel to it. The story is about Avery, who's had to grow up fast. She lost her parents in a tragic accident at a young age, and has lived with her aunt every since. Now that her aunt is dying, she's dropped out of NYU to take care of her and will do anything to save her. Brennus has spent over two thousands guiding souls to the other world and now he's come to collect the one that fought him years ago and won, Avery. I loved the romance in the story. It's a story about choices, sacrifice, and redemption. This is truly one of those fabulously written guilty pleasures!

By FV - Published on Amazon.com

It is hard to get into a stand alone novella sometimes. Mostly it's because they are so short that it's hard to really get much character development. When people use these in series it works because you can do a little development in each novella but this is a stand alone. I haven't read anything by Samantha Young before, but she has a lot out there and they all have great covers. I think that she is a pretty good writer and the characters in this story have some intrigue. Avery is still traumatized by the death of her parents, and her near death, and now her aunt who cared for her after her parents passed is now dying too. Avery dislikes being the center of attention probably because of all the guilt she has, and then she meats Brennus a man with a horrid scar on his face that she is both repulsed by and drawn to who happens to be Death (sort of) too. He doesn't kill people just plays the role of Grim Reaper and ushers people on to their afterlife. All of the characters besides the 2 main ones are irrelevant, and even the main ones are sort of detached from us. They are supposed to be fated and they had met before, though how they met (though told) isn't really explained and I would have liked to hear how Avery got away. However, it is a quick read and those who like the young adult paranormal/fantasy romance will probably enjoy this too.

HASH(0xa12d5a08) out of 5 stars started out good halfway through it became a confusing mess May 19 2013
By Gypsy - Published on Amazon.com

I really liked the idea of the book and was settled in waiting to read the rest when it seemed like the author dropped the ball... I don't know if the ending was re-written so many times it became just an obscure mess with most characters just shadows. I mean it really looks as if one person wrote the first half of the book and another just made a mess of the rest.

Spoiler... and the end??? what are they if they aren't alive, dead, undead, death, ghosts... I mean... HUH????

HASH(0xa12d1f00) out of 5 stars Sweet novella Sept. 4 2014
By Sara - Published on Amazon.com

There's much that is right with this story and some that is wrong, like abrupt uses of the paranormal to move the story along. If the author had given it more time, the reader might simply have accepted the fantastical elements as they appeared, but since she didn't, I was yanked out of the story several times to roll my eyes. Still, it's a fun read, with an interesting premise, so I'd recommend it.
