As I was reading Evermore, I had a weird thought. The characters reminded me a lot of My So-Called Life. It was Ever's friend, Miles. He reminded me of Ricky and then I kept thinking of Haven as Rayanne Graff, and Ever as Angela Chase. Ever even has a younger sister. Anyway, this thought colored the first part of the book. Not that it matters, but I wanted to share this. Also I got some major Twilight flashbacks. Beautiful mysterious man tries to stay away from beautiful shy girl but their love is too epic and true. Blah blah. I was ready to write this book off, but then in the second half it got really good and actually surprised me. The direction it took was not unexpected, but the details were and that is a very good thing. I hope this keeps up in the sequel, Blue Moon.

What an interesting comparison! I loved My So-Called Life.ReplyDelete
I used to watch My So Called Life in the summers when I was feeling sluggish in the afternoon heat, but I don't remember much about it. I'm a little worried about this book because I didn't enjoy the writing in SAving Zoe at all, but i"m glad to hear this got better in the second half.ReplyDelete
You should rent My So Called Life and watch it again. It is still good after all this time.ReplyDelete
I was pleasantly surprised by Evermore. I just had to wait for it.

I felt the same way about Evermore. By th way, Bluemoon is better. It drags on at some points but it steps away from the Twilight similarityReplyDelete
Sounds fun! I've been seeing this book all over the place and wasn't really sure whether it would be worth my time. I'll give it a try now (if I can ever dig out from under my current TBR pile, that is!). Great review!ReplyDelete
I've seen so many mixed reviews of this book. It does sound like a fun read. I think I may have to break down and read it just to see what it's all about.ReplyDelete
