Evermore by Alyson Noel

After the accident that left her orphaned, 16 year old Ever has not only survived this traumatic ordeal but can now see people’s auras, hear people’s thoughts and keeps getting visited by the ghost of her younger sister Riley.

Ever is now residing with her aunt in California - she lives in this spectacular house overlooking the ocean, goes to a new school, has made some new friends (although they are recluses like her) and is trying to make the best out of her situation. Her only problem - the world around her is just too much for her to handle. She has to live with her iPod on at all times (playing loud rock music) and uses a hoody to try to have some type of quiet. But even that doesn’t help - she is seen as a weirdo by her classmates (the opposite of the life she was living before the accident). That is until the day that new student Damen Auguste sits next to her in class. She is intrigued yet at the same time terrified of him. Damon’s touch not only calms the psychic chaos going on in her head but his touch gives her the shivers.

I really liked this. Although it was an easy read - I found it well worth the time. Ever was a very unique character and I really enjoyed reading about her and her special talents. And Damen [sighs] needless, to say I was intrigued. It is a very cute romance with a supernatural twist. There were some funny parts as well as some very sweet moments. I thought that Riley was one of the funniest characters in the book. She was to die for (no pun intended). The mystery factor - of who or what Damen is had me going the whole time. I sat and read this in a couple of hours - then went out and bought Blue Moon. Yep, I enjoyed it that much.

Really? I didn't enjoy it at all. I wrote a pretty nasty review about it, too...

Oh well, glad someone enjoyed it!

Glad you liked this one! I will not be reading the rest of the series but I'm still curious to read your review of Blue Moon. :)

Happy reading!

I've seen mixed reviews about this! And that just gets me curious. I'll have to find out for myself.

Alison (Alison's Book Marks) said...

I agree with Beth F. -- I need to get this book and find out for myself. If there's a character that makes you swoon, count me in.

Thanks for the review!

I just started this. I can sense why it gets mixed reviews, but so far, I think I will like it enough to be ready for Blue Moon.

I just had to tell you I love Riley as well.

Evermore is a fantastic book!
Alyson Noel is a great writer!
It has the "twilight feeling" in it but it's nothing like twilight because Evermore has a good and eerie twist you didn't expect to happen.You're going to be totally surprised.
I also read Blue Moon(second book of the series) and it's so much better than Evermore.
I'm a TWILIGHT FAN and now an EVERMORE FAN.
