A blog for all my reviews, rants, thoughts, and whatnots. Well, yeah, pretty much. Also, there will be random posts about movies, music, and other mundane stuffs like that. But this will be mostly me blabbering, ranting, and gushing about my latest read. So, if you are one who finds bliss in sipping a cup of tea while reading a book on a rainy day such as myself, then by all means, read on! :)

Evermore (The Immortals #1) by Alyson Noel

The Blurb:
Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever can see auras, hear people’s thoughts, and know a person’s life story by touch.   Going out of her way to shield herself from human contact to suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school—but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste . . . 
Ever sees Damen and feels an instant recognition.  He is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy, and he holds many secrets.  Damen is able to make things appear and disappear, he always seems to know what she’s thinking—and he’s the only one who can silence the noise and the random energy in her head.  She doesn’t know who he really is—or what he is.  Damen equal parts light and darkness, and he belongs to an enchanted new world where no one ever dies.

The Review:

I really liked this book, it was a good novel that kept me up all night, reading. I liked the protagonist, Ever Bloom. I sort of can relate to her and to what she feels sometimes. There are twists that you wouldn't see coming, so unlike other predictable paranormal novels. The perfect chemistry between Ever and her love interest is amazing. I mean, I've read a couple of romance novels -- some of them lovebirds weren't that affecting or moving or cute in a way, and some were sensational. I must say that Evermore belongs to the latter. I love Ever and Damen. I find their little "trips" to be very romantic and that Damen is totally the guy-in-every-girl's-dream. There is one loose-end though, but I'm sure it'll be all sewn up in the next book, Blue Moon. 

It's a major asset for the series that Ever Bloom is an immortal because I'm getting a little tired of the old "Damsel in Distress" theme, seriously. So Ever, being as strong and as capable as her Damen, is quite clever and imaginative. So all in all, Evermore is undeniably worth-reading. I hope Blue Moon is, too.

This is how I pictured Ever and Damen:
