Evermore by Alyson Noel Rating: So so... Difficulty: Normal Pages: 306
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.
In the beginning of the book i was not that in to it to be honest. It seemed to kind of drag along and Ever was super depressed and very grouchy the whole time. Just before i decided to close the book and just give up, the book started to get a little better and then a little more better and then i was hooked. It might take a little patience but once you get past the first chapter, Evermore is a really great read. Damen is strangely familiar to another literary character, (as i've heard many others say) Edward but he's also very different. Miles and Riley have to be my two favorite characters in the whole book aside from Damen, they both put a little humorous kick to this other wise intense and passionate novel. If it wasn't so ho-hum at the beginning i would say this book was great but sice it was, i only rated as So So. I'm glad i got into this book though and i really can't wait to read the next book in the Immortal Series- Blue Moon!

Ratings and Difficulty!
Rating: Incredible- A book that I rate as incredible is both captivating and creative! It is highly recommended and a definite must read!
Great- A great book has some bad parts but mostly a bunch of strong points. It is interesting but seems to lag at some points.
So So- A book labeled as So So is not recommended unless you are highly interested in the topic or author. It has a few good parts but a ton of bad parts.
Total Bomb- A book that is a total bomb is not recommended under any circumstances. Usually I like to find the good in every book but a bomb is just a waste of time!
Difficulty: Advanced- Everyone’s reading abilities are different but an advanced book is exactly that…advanced! This may have dialogue from another era or highly developed words.
Normal- A normal book is a book that has everyday dialogue and vocabulary but also may have a few “big words” scattered here or there.
Easy- An easy book has basic vocabulary and can be read by anyone over the age of ten.
