Evernight by Claudia Gray

Evernight by Claudia Gray

Publisher: HarperTeen (May 27, 2008)
Hardcover: 336 pages
Age Group: Young Adult

"Bianca wants to escape. She's been uprooted from her small hometown and enrolled at Evernight Academy, an eerie Gothic boarding school where the students are somehow too perfect: smart, sleek, and almost predatory. Bianca knows she doesn't fit in.

Then she meets Lucas. He's not the "Evernight type" eitehr, and he likes it that way. Lucas ignores the rules, stands up to the snobs, and warns Bianca to be careful—even when it comes to caring about him.
"I couldn't stand it if they took it out on you," he tells Bianca, "and eventually they would."
But the connection between Bianca and Lucas can't be denied. Bianca will risk anything to be with Lucas, but dark secrets are fated to tear them apart... and to make Bianca question everything she's ever believed."

Evernight is amazing and is definitely my favorite book at the moment, well... at the top. It's really hard to pick an exact favorite book. But I guess if I had to pick one favorite, it would be Evernight. I couldn't put it down at all. Every time I did it kept calling to me to pick it back up. It seriously became a drug.

Evernight is so filled with emotion and reality, even though it has fantasy throughout the whole book. The characters are so real. Bianca and Lucas's love for each other is so moving and heartbreaking. I can't tell you how many times I cried throughout this book.

Something in Evernight, which I'm not going to tell what because it's a major spoiler, completely made me drop my book. Seriously. It caught me off guard and I just dropped the book. It took me a few seconds to pick it back up and continue on.

Evernight is filled with so many things; unconditional love, suspense, great characters, original and intriguing storyline. It's just... wow. I recommend it to everyone. Don't wait any longer to read this! Just go and read it, no matter what. Read!

I hate myself for taking so long to read this. I had it on my shelf for a while!

Claudia rock! I can't wait for Stargazer!

I tried reading this one, but I got distracted and wasn't able to renew it. I'm going to try again though! It sounds really good!

It it! It's my number one favorite book now. Usually I don't have a number one, just have a huge list, which I still have the huge list of my favorite books. But it's at the top! Very, very good! :)
