Hokay So Instead of reviewing the book, I ve decided I m just going to review the whole series right here.It is, and I say this without even an ounce of doubt, the worst series I have ever read Of all the worst things, this is absolutelyThere will be spoilers in this review, but you know, who the fuck cares I wasted my time reading this whole series, because it was basically for nothing I recently realized that all of Ever s struggles in this series are only for the sole purpose so that she can [...]

Ever is a wonderful book No, seriously, I mean that Disregard the one star rating I ve given it and hear me out, dang it It s wonderful in the sense that it makes Twilight look like a masterpiece of literature In fact, Ever is a terrible rip off of Twilight in the same way that most of the really popular YA novels from 2005 2010 were Girl moves to a new town Girl meets boy Boy turns out to be a vampire werewolf fairy some other mythological being that the author clearly only researched through I [...]
No Just no Absolutely not I could NOT continue this book The only minute thing I found interesting was that the car accident managed to knock the dog s balls off somehow Other than that, I couldn t stand any No no no no no Hell fucking shit no.
Back when I read this book, I didn t know what snark was Now that I do hehehehehehehe Now that I do and now that I remember everything that bothered me about this book, I shall write snark Yes, I shall.Mmmm snark.So let me explain what I thought I was reading with this excellent meme Ah, yes How Ever utterly reminded me of Bella Swan, I cannot explain in this review I just cannot And how Damen reminded me of Edward Cullen, I cannot explain in this review I JUST CANNOT The resemblances are ridicu [...]
Having satisfied my curiosity about this popular YA series, I can safely scratch the rest of the books and their author off my TBR list forever.The book starts off OK mind reading, auras, family drama, but very swiftly becomes just another pathetic Twilight rip off Same worn out story of an insecure girl falling for a mysterious sexy dangerous paranormal guy, same absent adults, same love without really knowing each other, same focus on outer beauty and expensive things, same gazing into each ot [...]
I rewrote most of the review, for I didn t like the old one Feel free to Unlike it if you don t agree with my present draft It s such a shame This book has such a beautiful cover It doesn t really make sense, but it s still pretty I was immediately curious when I saw it, and wanted to use it decorate my book shelf.Little did I know that the amazing cover was only hiding the shit that lay inside.I can t tell who I despise in this book Damen or Ever Probably Damen But ladies first, shall we Ever [...]
This book warrants a full on, GIF ridden review You ve been warned.Let me start out by saying this SoWe have Ever Yeah, EVER Who names their kid EVER There was also Honor, Haven and Stacia, but I digress Anyway, who would play Ever in the movie A light switch Think about it She loves him, she hates him She loves him, she hates him She loves him, she wants to barf at the sight of him.So she almost died and now she has psychic powers Which, by psychic powers, she means being restricted to only wea [...]
I absolutely loved this book It is a bit of an easy read, but well worth it I felt as though the author had taken some of my favorite young adult books and blended them into one solid story This is basically a young adult romance novel with a supernatural twist It had some humor peppered throughout it, but it was mostly just sweet Damen was an interesting character, but he did irritate me with the Drina situation I won t say because I do not want to spoil it I completely recommend this book to [...]
Review to come
I have heard a lot about this book reviews ranging from amazing to a rip off of Twilight, any way continuing with this tragic epic tale in which I have lost brain cells and I am warning you that what you read ahead is not for the easily offended as it does contain a lot of rage, incoherence and strong language Anyway, like most typical, shitty YA novels it starts off with a boring, emo girl who is a speshul snowflake because we are severely lacking some of these in the YA genre, of course angsti [...]
I m not surprised that I devoured this novel I m a fantasy junkie, what can I say I ve been pinning after this book for what seems like forever, so of course I had high standards And honestly most of them were met, there were a few things that I would have loved to seen Noel elaborate on, but overall I was utterly and completely satisfied Let s start with characterization Ever was a solid character, I got her guilt, I understood her struggle, and her name is Ever could that possibly mean she las [...]
I m listening to this one I m about half way and getting annoyed by how clueless and self absorbed Ever is She has a right to be in the beginning, but the time has passed for her to wake up Plus she s mean to her little sister, considering what happened to Riley, she should be A LOT nicer I m willing to keep listening The actress reader is excellent and I m thinking that I might not have lasted this long if I were reading the bookbut that s a hard one to call Ugh I did finish and it was a strugg [...]
I told myself that I honestly wasn t going to read this book after my friend, Aysha, came up to me one day just praising the book I read about twelve pages and then gave up, I had enough of all things with the words dark and romance in it after reading Twilight Nonetheless, I just saw this book sitting on a shelf at my local library and the prospect of making a bad review about it on just made me happy, so here we are There might be about one or two spoilers in the book, but don t worry it won t [...]

I loved the supernatural romance between Ever and Damen They might just be my new favorite fictional couple Beside Ever s supremely stubborn side, I liked her You got a real understanding for why she is so stand offish, why she s closed herself off from the world Damen is a mystery His hot and cold attitude towards Ever was frustrating yet, very intriguing Wanting to put the pieces of the puzzle together is what kept me wanting I loved Riley, Ever s sister Riley is unable to move on, out of fea [...]
Ugh Pretty well sums up how I felt about this book Not very original It is a Twilightesque book that manages to cover all the mistakes of that book and never even once hits a good note The plot makes little sense Girl dies Comes back Is psychic, can read minds and see auras and hates her life because she blames herself for her family s death in the car crash that very nearly killed her Can also see ghosts Is considered freak at school for the way that she acts and dresses, mainly all because she [...]
This was a YA paranormal romance story, about a teen psychic.I liked Ever and I felt really sorry for her the way she had lost her family in such tragic circumstances I liked Damen too, but he was a little irritating with all the red tulips all the time.The storyline in this was about Ever having been in a car accident that killed her family, and left her with psychic powers We then had Damen, a new boy at school, who strangely had no aura, and we spent most of the book then trying to figure out [...]
This book started really good but then it got dumb If you live forever and don t want anybody to know it, get some furniture Throw away the paintings that show you in olden times And what kind of dummy gets back together with a girl who keeps murdering his girlfriend I wanted to be in love with this book It was too dumb, so I couldn t I gave it an extra star for the beginning that was really good.

Hours of my life I will never get back were wasted reading this and I rarely feel that way Something made me keep turning the pages, but this book is horrible The romance is unconvincing, the characters flat, the mythology annoying, and there is something cringe worthy the names, for one Ever Summerland Haven are you kidding me on each and every page quite a feat It s a cheap Twilight Saga and Southern Vampire Sookie Stackhouse Mysteries rip off Sure, many of the aforementioned criticisms could [...]
Stop me if you ve heard this one before Girl moves to new city New, rich, and perfect boy shows up to school and immediately shows marked attention to girl Boy has all kinds of odd abilities moves fast, is drop dead gorgeous, never eats and girl can t figure him out but can t stay away either.Ring any bells I felt like I had already read the first hundred pages or so in this Twilight wannabe where Ever loses her family in a tragic car accident and moves in with her aunt in California After the a [...]
Decent writing, nonsensical plotting.
You know, I really feel bad for deleting my entire review because six people liked it I m not sure why, as it was me simply ranting indulgently about how much I loved this book.Take into consideration that I was young and innocent and unaware of young adult powerhouses like The Hunger Games and Shiver when I read this As I continue to read of this series, it continues to disappoint.What I m getting at is that I m not sure if I would grant this book five stars once I re read it now, as an older [...]
You know, I thought only books like Twilight, Fallen and Marked were a select few to be considered a real abomination to the YA literature scene at the moment But alas, I found another contestant and it definitely a shoo in to be up there with Twilight in just God awful terrible.In a Nutshell New kid Damen is a dream come true to the whole school, and especially to Ever Compared to the clutter of thoughts and auras, its a kind of silence that Ever welcomes They soon fall inevitably in love, for [...]
I felt inclined to write a review about Ever, considering this is the worst book I have ever read pun intended You would be deficient not to notice the similarity between ever and twilight I think the author was personally saying, In your face Stephanie Meyer, let s see if you can write a worse love story than this Twilight wasn t anything staggering, but at least it was somewhat entertaining I read this book last year, and by now my memory of Ever has faded Yet, some terrible recollections rema [...]
I ve been devouring YA supernatural fiction lately, and after having gone through some good and some mediocre, I finally stumbled upon Ever, which quickly proved to be neither good nor mediocre, just plain bad Ever Bloom is the most vain, shallow, egocentric, selfish, and mentally deficient character I ve ever had the unfortunate pleasure of getting to know She begrudges anyone else s happiness, ignores her friends when it suits her, turns into a doormat at the most unlikely times, and is mean t [...]
Eh, I don t really like this book The story isn t very original or creative The whole you are immune to my painfully annoying superpowers is really cliche and has been done way too many times before The whole OMG Damen s so hot and sexy thing is kind of stupid and superficial Plus, Noel never actually describes Damen she just says he s really hot Um, excuse me Hot is an opinion thing I want you to show me how Damen looks like so I can decide if he s hot or not Jeez.And Damen ugh I hate him, he s [...]
