Having a book drought?

I suggest picking up Kelly Creagh's debut novel, Nevermore.

Cheerleader Isobel Lanley is horrified when she is paired with Varen Nethers for an English project, which is due—so unfair—on the day of the rival game. Cold and aloof, sardonic and sharp-tongued, Varen makes it clear he’d rather not have anything to do with her either. But when Isobel discovers strange writing in his journal, she can’t help but give this enigmatic boy with the piercing eyes another look.

Soon, Isobel finds herself making excuses to be with Varen. Steadily pulled away from her friends and her possessive boyfriend, Isobel ventures deeper and deeper into the dream world Varen has created through the pages of his notebook, a realm where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life.

As her world begins to unravel around her, Isobel discovers that dreams, like words, hold more power than she ever imagined, and that the most frightening realities are those of the mind. Now she must find a way to reach Varen before he is consumed by the shadows of his own nightmares.

His life depends on it.


I just finished reading this book myself & thought it was a good read to keep me entertained after coming off of such a book high from Mockingjay and Clockwork Angel. If you need something to quench your thirst, then I suggest grabbing this one. Don't be afraid of the 500 some odd pages. The story keeps you engaged & the ending will leave you wanting more. I believe this is the first of a 3 book trilogy (or at least I hope so b/c if not the ending will piss me off! lol). The references to Edgar Ellen Poe are interesting & something different than your typical supernatural teenage romance. If you decide to read it, let me know -- would love to discuss once you're finished.

1 enjoyed the bouquet.:
