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.

I expected a lot while reading Evermore because everyone was REALLY excited. And I will admit that I was a little disapointed. I got tired of Ever blaming herself for her family's death. It's obvious that it wasn't but she still wallows in self pity. Oh and why was she always against Ava. She was just trying to help her. But god forbid someone is nice to Ever. Beside those minor flaws Evermore was fantastic. Oh and if this book ever said anyone was a vampire I was gonna punch them in their fictional face. I was expecting something different, thankfully this wasn't needed. The whole idea that Ever had these great mind reading powers that annoyed her was interesting. I would have loved those powers but Ever was different. But of course Damen is the only person that could penetrate her tough exterior. Thanks Damen for making Ever fall head over heels. Am I the only one that gets annoyed at books with boys that are all a girl thinks about? I got over that though and the ending was very well crafted and I can't wait to read the next book in the series!

I'm actually in the process of reading this atm.

And seeing this cover in juxtaposition to North of Beautiful's cover has just sparked a revelation - and a new blog post! ;) Awesome.
