Evermore by Alyson Noel
Genre: Romance/Paranormal/Young Adult
Evermore by Alyson Noel is about a girl named Ever Bloom, who can see people’s auras after a family car accident that destroyed her normal life forever. She is a psychic. She can hear people’s thoughts and know someone’s past just by human touch. While she struggles with denial, guilt, and hiding her secret abilities, a boy named Damen Auguste enters her life. Ever has an instant attraction toward him, but doesn’t know why. His mysterious, exotic, and enticing nature leads Ever to fall helplessly in love with him.
Characters: I thought this book was a fairly average paranormal romance story. There wasn’t anything unique about the characters. Although, my favorite character was Ever’s little sister, Riley because she gave Ever some sense into her life. It’s too bad she was ghost and didn’t have many parts in the story like I was hoping for. Damen Auguste was described as the, “perfect individual.” I strongly dislike male characters who are written impeccably because everyone has flaws. No one is perfect.
Plot: I started yawning so much when I read the first half of this book. The pacing was okay, but I could tell Alyson really took her time for the story to take off. It wasn’t until after the climax that I began enjoying the story a little bit. The story line was pretty cliche in my opinion.
Cover Analysis: Ever Bloom is holding a couple of tulips. I’m glad there’s tulips on the cover because they are symbolic to the story. They represent, “undying love.”
Key Notes: If you want to read a better story about paranormal romance and immortality, then I suggest reading Elixir by Hilary Duff would be a better choice.
Overall: If you love reading a typical romance book. You might enjoy reading this. Although, I warn you, don’t let the synopsis fool you. Other, than Ever’s ability to see people’s auras, Ever is just a hopeless lover girl.
