Evermore by Alyson Noel

Reading Level: Young Adult

Paperback: 320 Pages

Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin


My Rating: 5/5
After a horrible accident claims the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever Bloom can see people's auras, hear their thoughts, and know someone's entire life story by touching them. Going out of her way to avoid human contact and suppress her abilities, she has been branded a freak at her new high school-but everything changes when she meets Dame Auguste.
Damen is gorgeous, exotic, and wealthy. He's the only one who can silence the noise and random energy in her head-wielding a magic so intense, it's as though he can peer straight into her soul. As Ever is drawn deeper into his enticing world of secrets and mystery, she's left with more questions than answers. And she has no idea just who he really is-or
what he is. The only thing she knows to be true is that she's falling deeply and helplessly in love with him.

'Evermore' by Alyson Noel is amazing! I've only read book one so far and I'm already hooked. I love it! It's highly addictive. I devoured almost the entire book in one go. It's immaculate! I can honestly say, I can't think of a single thing I didn't like about 'Evermore' except that it had to end! Luckily, I got into this series late and there are already a ton of books out for me to read! So I can't wait to dive into 'Blue Moon.'

'Evermore' is about a sixteen year old girl named Ever. She has a death experience, she comes back, and, ever since then, she's been haunted and tormented by the constant onslaught of thoughts, seeing ghosts, and viewing people's auras. She meets a boy named Damen who is more perfect than perfect. Sound familiar? It should. 'Evermore' is similar to all the other poplular YA books like Twilight and Fallen. This book has some distinct qualities that set it apart from all those other books though. And that's what really drew me in. I loved the characters which plays a major part in whether or not I'll like a book. And I usually know early on when reading a book whether or not I'll like it. I knew by the end of Chapter 1 that I would love 'Evermore.'

I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes Twilight, Fallen, Hush Hush, or any of those books. A lot of complaints that I've seen from people who have read 'Evermore' is that it's very similar to Twilight. I don't really feel like it is. Like I said, 'Evermore' has it's own, very distinct, qualities that set it apart from all the rest and it's absolutely worth reading. You should definitely, definitely, check it out if you haven't yet!


  1. I love when you find an awesome book you truly can't put down :) Don't worry about people comparing it to Twilight. All of these YA paranormal books have similar threads, and Twilight wasn't the first one ever written, it borrowed from others just as much as some my borrow from it :)

  2. I loved this book too so I'm really glad you enjoyed it! Sadly the sequel didn't quite live up to my expectations. :(
