Review: Evermore by Alyson Noel

Book: Evermore by Alyson Noel

Genre: YA Fantasy/Paranormal

Rating: B+

For: Fun

This story was so much like The Vampire Diaries, which I also recently read, that I kept getting them mixed up. They guys in these two books even have the same name! Talk about confusing.

Anyway, there's the girl who's all depressed because her parents have just died. Then she goes to school and of course there's the new guy that everyone is ogling, but she fights it. Yet, they are irresistibly drawn together, and resistance is futile. Then in the process of the relationship, she learns things about him that are pretty creepy and disconcerting, and not quite what you think.

However, this one has a bit of a twist because Ever has powers, she sees dead people, and auras, and everybody's thoughts.

Everyone's that is, except the mystery guy.

Bottom line, I enjoyed the story and it kept me turning pages, but I think I'm a bit burned out by this whole familiar plot line. Time for something different, I say. I'll probably read the sequels some day, but I'm not running to do so.

Other Reviews:

So Many Books, So Little Time


  1. I liked this one a lot, but I haven't read very many books in this genre, so it was new-to-me if that makes sense.

  2. Makes total sense, and I probably would have liked it more had I not recently read too many in this genre.

  3. Sounds like a combination between Vampire Diaries and the Sookie Stackhouse novels. I wish someone would come up with a new vampire plot. It is possible if someone is talented enough.

  4. This isn't a vampire book. It had nothing to do with vampires and it wasn't even close to the Sookie Stackhouse books. It did sort of remind me to Twilight though.
