Evermore by Alyson Noel

So I read half of this book in the bookstore today and decided to make a post about it now because who knows when I will get to read the other half (I didn't buy it and its on like mega-hold at the library). Annnyway, its a fairly easy read at about 300 pages. And verry similar to Twilight. Its like Twilight with one very major plot twist. And sofar, I am enjoying it, even though it is so similar. I think this is because the characters are actually developed, which is something SM seems to have trouble with. But by pg. 150, you can sense that drama is coming, but it definitely hasn't come yet. I will find a synopsis from amazon for you.

ok. this is actually from B&N and I only took a tiny tidbit because the other reviews seemed to give stuff away (things I didn't even know yet!)

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…

5 enjoyed the bouquet.:

I remember reading a review about this book from amazon, but for some reason didn't take a 2nd look at it.

But hearing your opinion Alison has made me curious now. I may have to pick this one up now!

I bought and read this book over the weekend. It was good! It was an easy read -- stayed up way too late because I couldn't put it down. I did find myself getting annoyed with the main character but, since I don't want to spoil it for you guys, I won't go into it here.

Funny we got a comment about this yesterday. Going to go watch the link now.
