How To Write Popular YA Supernatural Literature AND Defile Your SpiritBased on the popular YA novel Ever and aided by countless like it I have compiled an easy to read and follow list of rules for writing a popular series and being able to sell out your soul at the same time Does that sound too convenient? Well it's unbelievably easy to do if you follow my uick and easy program1 Create an 'Outcast' HeroineIt's important that your primarily female teenage audience can relate to your main character So whilst you can't have your main character associate herself with being cool it still has to be obvious to your audience that she totally is Now Meyer's approach of the goose turned Swan but was really still a goose Bella associated herself as 'different' and a 'loner' only to arrive at her new school and be immediately popular and accepted by almost everyone Noel's method is different yet in a similar spirit Her protagonist Ever was incredibly popular at her old school and has decided to be an outcast because she feels that she can't be accepted due to her psychic gift She also has the ability to perceive someone's personality through the colours that define them So instead of aligning herself with the shallow mean and popular crowd she aligns herself with the shallow and mean loners It’s very important for your protagonists to be 'different' because today's youth despise the sheep mentality and so they all strive to be uniue Since they're all different in almost the exact same way it is relatively easy to emulate this with as little effort put into characterization as possible in your female protagonistAs long as she shows no regard for her clothing appearance or any kind of interest in giving a shit about anyone but herself she will easily pass with young audiences It will be her ewniueness that eventually draws the Perfect Hero to her as opposed to any of the usual elements such as looks hygiene personality or determinable interest in the world outside their own arsePlease also remember that she probably should be a reader preferably of Wuthering Heights or Romeo and Juliet and that she should consider everyone around her to have inferior intelligence despite the fact that her reading repertoire extends to only a couple of booksA noticeably absent family is necessary and a completely dead family makes for a better story because then she actually has a perceived reason to be a moody antisocial self absorbed little bitch Do this even though in all likelihood she would be all of the above with a perfectly normal family2 Create a perfect heroIt is VERY important that your hero be perfect in almost every regard Unlike the female protagonist who can disregard her appearance he must not only be attractive than a G model without any of the effort put into his appearance but he must also be thoughtful intelligent and mysteriousIn no way is he to reflect almost every teenage boy to have ever existed and he must have no desire to find a partner for himself who is in anyway comparable in looks kindness intelligence or perfectionIf he is a vampire or some such immortal then he must be ridiculously wealthy If he is a werewolf then he is allowed to be poor but must make up for it with incredible bedroom skillsHe needn’t have a personality that extends beyond mysterious sexy and in love with the female protagonist Naturally in this respect Meyers Mead Marr and Stiefvater are something like overachievers but if Noel Saintcrow Clare Kate and Fitzpatrick are any indication then we need know little about the hero other than the fact that he’s gorgeous has a secret and is in love History friends likes dislikes family passions interests hobbies and personality flaws are all negligible information that is taking up precious space in your novel Especially when you could be injecting drooling from the female protagonist in place of any kind of characterization for your heroYour book will sell better if the hero stalks follows obsesses over and actively pursues the heroine beyond any realm of believability You could triple your audience just by having him watch her sleep3 Create useless friendsIt’s important to reiterate to the young adult generation that nobody other than the hero is important Since domestic abuse begins with one partner manoeuvring the other to have limited contact with anyone else we must strive to normalize this in literature Thus the female protagonist shouldn’t have anyone close enough to her that she can’t break contact or eventually forget about them It’s very important that her full focus socialization and all of her needs are eventually devoted or met by the male protagonist To aid this her friends must be selfish vain crazy slutty uncaring or in other ways undeserving of the heroine’s attentions and affections It’s very important that she never call them on their poor damaging and graceless friendship but must lovingly worry about them for the minimal amount of time acceptable to the reader before once again completely focusing on the mysterious hero4 Mix in a twisted convoluted plot designed entirely to provide dramatic and sexy subplotIt’s important that the plot no matter how unlikely must revolve around the hero saving the heroine The villains do not necessarily need to have realistic or conceivable motivations for their actions As long as the hero gets to save the day at least three or four times then your book will be profitablePlease remember that the actual plot of your story needn’t truly begin until at least 350 pages into your story The longer you can stall any interesting event occuring the less thinking you will actually need to doPlus FOR FREE extras to help 'improve' your novel the bottom line of your sales and the expedient destruction of your soul How to create a senseless mythologyMythology is of a concept rather than something that needs to be respected or honoured Vampires don’t need to refrain from daylight and angels no longer need to “fall” for good they can now be redeemed like us The good news is that creating your own mythology disregarding anything written before allows you to twist and bastardize the plot beyond any recognizably interesting concept Explanations as to why research could actually DAMAGE your profitResearch takes time energy and intelligence Why do it? You’ve got ten fingers presumably and an attention span that extends past anything that could be compared to a gnat even if it is only barely Simply make it up as you go For example Ever is psychic Research may tell us that this has something to do with receiving visions of the future or possibly commnicating with ghosts Yet research is boring Instead she is imbued with the following powers that we guess can kind of be put under a psychic umbrella if we force enough information and logic out of our brains first Mind reading visions of near present and future personal life knowledge of any person she physically touches seeing ghosts seeing auras literary osmosis from touching any written object drawing the answers from any written uestion placed before her and any other supernatural abilities that seem convenient at the time Detailed observations on why the Deus Ex Machina rocksTying together a plot even if you work to keep it as non complicated or infantile as possible is hard It’s much easier to ignore tying together a number of plot points in any believable fashion and instead rely on some Deus Ex Machina to come in and take care of thoughtful planning for you How to expand one nonsensical idea into a series and why this is profitable than originalityLast but not least Ensure that your story is somewhat open ended so that you can create a series out of it Research shows that people even if they are intelligent enough to see that you’re writing is becoming progressively shittier and nonsensical will often still purchase books in the series in order to find out what happens So rather than creating a new story with new characters simply beat the same old horse it needn’t really be a horse – simply a pile of shit that’s been forced into a horse like shape for at least three or books in order to sueeze every last cent out of the franchise that you can This review can also be found on my blog Cuddlebuggery Book Blog THE EVERMORE DRINKING GAME It looks like you’ve picked up the Ever Drinking Game for whichever reason but if it’s because you have an interest in reading Ever I strongly advise against it for your sanity’s sake However if you’re still not convinced to stay the hell away from this book the Ever Drinking Game is here to make your reading experience as enjoyable as possible because trust me you won’t find anything enjoyable in this book without it The rules for the Ever Drinking Game are simple when you read any of the instances mentioned below when reading Ever you take a swig of anything It could be alcohol for the best results; it could be water sadly with this option you’ll still actually have some grasp of the story coffee but you’ll be as hyper as you’ve ever been before you reach the end of the game or really any other beverage in your disposal Let’s begin the game shall we? Once again when you read any of the following instances take a swig And go Whenever you roll your eyes take a swig Whenever you feel like taking a hammer to Ever take a swig and maybe that hammer Easy so far? Don’t worry – you won’t be saying that after long Whenever Ever heh is a complete and total idiot take a swig yikes Whenever someone uses a positive adjective when describing Damen take a swig preferably sexy gorgeous hot smoking or even combustible Whenever someone says “omigod” take a swig omigod you’re in trouble Whenever Ever presses her lips take a swig good luck with that one my friend Whenever another talent Damen has is revealed take a swig but Damen will probably swig better than you Whenever you find out something before Ever does take a swig Whenever Ever throws herself a pity party take a swig ya know her family used to like parties Whenever Ever dreams of Damen take a swig Whenever Damen and Ever declare their undying love for each other take a swig Whenever Riley is annoying take a swig Whenever you find a Twilight rip off reference take a swig man I’m harsh Whenever you feel the urge to run out the nearest window because you’re reading Ever take Cymbalta a swig When or if you finish Ever take a swig because you my friend conuered this monstrosityCongratulations You’ve made it this far and finished the Ever Drinking Game And if you haven’t that’s either because you’re too drunk to function and in intensive care in the bathroom doing only god knows what or deadWell wasn’t this game enjoyable If one thing’s for certain it was enjoyable than Ever Edit 04012018 Commentary from Present Day MeOh man sixteen year old me was so angry lmao Bless his soul This review was fun to look back on since I actually did read the entire series All six books all terrible I guess this was also during my Brony phase; I noticed the Rarity GIF immediately This series was one of those ones that offended me with how bad it was if I recall correctlyMy old review somewhere around 2012Hokay So Instead of reviewing the book I've decided I'm just going to review the whole series right hereIt is and I say this without even an ounce of doubt the worst series I have ever read Of all the worst things this is absolutelyThere will be spoilers in this review but you know who the fuck cares?I wasted my time reading this whole series because it was basically for nothing I recently realized that all of Ever's struggles in this series are only for the sole purpose so that she can break the curse that's been preventing them to have sex Thus eventually having sex Which they do in the last book's ending predictablyEver is the stupidest heroine in the history of YA Every book ends with her making stupid choice after stupid choice In Blue Moon she listened to the bad guy thus unleashing the curse that I was talking about earlier In the third book she chose to save her best friend Haven who was actually a poser bitch that was barely even nice to her over curing the curse and by saving her she made her an immortal as well which I could not get over cause she was insufferable enough mortal And whadaya know she turns into the villain in book four ShockerAnd then of course there's Damen Auguste Arrogant muscular perfect rich He can paint better than Picasso He's absolutely perfect and flawless in every way possible He's also a controlling and selfish douchebag that irritates me to no end Honestly that's why he and Ever are perfect for each other Because they're both so eually annoyingAnd this curse thing God it dragged on and on for like four books with no resolution Basically at the end of book two Ever listens to the villain─yet another example of her utter stupidity─and ends up getting tricked by him Sure she cures Damen of this disease that the villain put on him but there's a catch they won't be able to touch or transfer DNA Meaning they won't be able to fuck Of course Ever is all freaking out about it cause she thinks that if they don't fuck sooner or later Damen will leave her since all hot guys are like that aren't they?Throughout the rest of the books all Ever wants is to get the antidote but due to her making stupid choices in every book it never works out And I think during book three or four or something Damen starts to be a little minimalistic─dressing less fancy getting rid of his expensive car etc─and you know what Ever does?She whines about itDamen is actually making an effort to get rid of his cocky arrogant self─to be a better person if you will─and you whine about it? My god do you guys SEE how absolutely ridiculous her stupidity is? I wanted to just reach into the page and knock some sense into herBut back to the whole antidote thing when I saw the cover for book five Night Star I thought Wow is she finally going to get that stupid antidote already?And you know how she gets this antidote? She doesn't It turns out that there's this magical tree with a magical fruit that when you eat it it makes you truly immortal In other words able to fuck And no unfortunately I did not make that up it's actually how it goesSo in the end they do fuck And that's it Done Ever claims that they're now truly together and everyone lives happily ever afterSo what was the message Alyson Noel gave? You have to have sex with someone to be truly together with them What a powerful inspiring message for young readers everywhere Bravo Ms NoelTo put it shortly this series is about two selfish people who want so badly to bump uglies Further I think that this series is nothing but a waste A waste of time space paper pretty much everything you can think of I still ask myself every single day why I ever chose to go through with reading all of the books I'll never get back those brain cells I lostYou may say Whoa isn't that a bit harsh? It can't be that bad can it? The reason why I may come off as very angry in this review is because it's not just the horrible kind of bad it's the offensive kind of bad The oh my god why do you even exist on this planet kind of bad The entire plotline of the series in general is pretty much the piss frosting on top of the shit cake because all this time I'd been reading a series that's solely about two selfish asshole teenage immortals who want to fuck that they're willing to do anything for it the female one being desperate than a thirsty reality TV star That's all there is to itThis is not the type of shit that tween girls should be reading and fantasizing over They should not take the message that this book puts forth about having sex with someone being the only way to prove your love or make a relationship last It's just disgusting and wrong on so many levels and I can't believe the gall of the author to implant this abysmal moral on young minds That may have not been her goal; she may not have realized it but I thought that it was crystal clearSo I advise you dear reader if you value your well being stay far far far FAR away from this atrocity Don't make the same mistake I did You still have the chance to save yourselvesTake it Have you ever heard of Mini Pop Kids? You know those thirteen year olds who fit 24 cheap covers of mega hit songs on to 2 CDs and pedal them on horrifyingly gaudy adverts between episodes of real 70s Scooby Doo on Teletoon Retro? By the way Teletoon Retro is the best channel on television Check it out It's absolutely brilliant You can watch crappily animated suggestive vintage cartoons like Dexter's Laboratory and Top Cat and The Flintstones at 3 am with short commercial breaks Love it? YesMini Pop Kids is basically the definition of pointless commercialism and they're so shiny I was not that shiny when I was thirteen I had terrible acne and I wore too much eyeliner because I thought I was emo and I really liked wearing these frumpy ex nursing shoes to school In front of peopleSee this book is basically the Mini Pop Kids of the YA paranormal romance genre It's this awful shiny cheap knock off written on really floppy paper It's like the gas station version of Twilight and that's assuming that it's possible for anything to be worse than Twilight Is it possible to be worse than Twilight? It's not like the plot even makes any sense Ever and Damen's romance just happens randomly one night at a party said party being an example of how aggressively Ever takes advantage of her aunt Sabine It's pretty formulaic YA fare smokin' hot Lothario and cloth eared cardboard cut out check each other out for a while do a little stalking and then Adonis tells Plain Jane how much prettier and smarter she is than all the other short skirted sluts at school and then they kiss and fall in eternal love within about one hundred pages Blah blah And there's this painful gotta catch the girl pursuit in which Ever expresses strong disinterest in Damen but he ignores this and continues to push against her until she gives in According to this book no means keep tryingThis is dangerous and it is bullshit If you're disinterested in someone you have absolutely no obligation to pretend to be interested in them If someone pursues you but you don't want to be pursued by them it's 200% reasonable to tell them to go away stop it or leave you aloneI could wax on and on about the whole virginwhore dichotomy that tears through this book like a bull seeing red but that would be a waste of time We already know it's going to be a sexist racist homophobic mess Why do we already know this? Two reasons One? It's a New York Time Bestseller and sits at the forefront of most bookstore YA displays and apparently the prereuisite for both of these privileges is appallingly offensive content Two? It was written by someone who lives in a world where it's perfectly fine and acceptable to pat rape culture on the back fetishize people of colour ridicule and commodify people within the LGBTA community and to use a woman's appearance intelligence and sexual choices to degrade her So let's not bother with the formalities of this is why it is offensive It just is offensive and that's that It doesn't take a genius to work out whyYou'd expect a book with such shitty content to at least have some mercy and be properly written It isn't It's like fanfiction all hel lo and totally and with the narrator using I mean as a prefix to about 60% of her inner monologue It's appalling It's like Marked because it's not even fun to laugh at It's just cringe worthy in it's crappiness Didn't I say this was a gas station Twilight? Well it isSpeaking of the narrator? Ever's a piece of shit That's basically it She's a huge piece of shit She treats everyone around her like garbage and then expects them to paw at her adoringly while she mopes in her hoodie with no makeup on her face Okay okay So you think you're a wallflower and you think you have some kind of really cool selfless tragic indie life Cool story bro You can do the whole self centered teenage thing if you want but don't pretend you're some kind of saintly madonna of a character who doesn't buy into the petty fads of the whores around you because you're just too damn obscure That's what this book tries to do It tries to make Ever out to be this sympathetic holier than thou Christ metaphor but in all honesty she's just an asshole I also want to add that absolutely zero research was conducted into the world of psychic mediums Psychic abilities are very specific and you can't just lump them all under the title of psychic Ever can read auras and see ghosts and read thoughts andyeah it lost me Reading thoughts? That's not a psychic ability Psychics don't get their information by reading your thoughts Telepathy is in a completely different ballpark and it's just shit like this that proves how few fucks the author gives about authenticity and integrity in her writing And not to mention the total lack of continuity surrounding the whole thing Ever says she sees spirits everywhere and they wave at her and stuff but she isn't at all bothered by this? What about people who died in horrible accidents? What about angry spirits? What about the mere fact that supposedly everywhere she goes she sees these dead people walking around like they're at the fucking carnival? She literally mentions it once and then never again The fact that she can see ghosts wandering around doesn't even factor into her daily life How can this even be?Listen because here's something this book won't teach you you aren't better than anyone else because you've had hardship in your life Yeah that sounds harsh doesn't it? But it's true Because you can't ever know what other people have gone through or had to deal with And even if they haven't had any hardship so what? Everyone is deserving of happiness People who have average painless lives aren't less street than you and they don't deserve to be shit on from a great height by people who've been through the wars If you've had pain in your life and you know how it feels to be truly unhappy then where the hell is the logic in wanting to inflict that on some content stranger?Needless to say Ever doesn't get this Does she have to scorn Haven and Miles? Does she really have to invade other people's privacy using her mediumship and then proceed to critiue their character based on their private thoughts? What goes on silently in someone else's head is seriously none of your business Does she have to be a huge brat to Sabine who has also lost family members? Sabine is grieving too and Ever is old enough to realize this She has lost her whole family and she has survivor's guilt and you can't expect someone to be whole and cheery with this sort of weight on their shoulders but Ever's not a little kid She's not a tiny child who doesn't know what death and grief is She's big enough to be able to empathize with other peopleBack to no means no if your friends try to force you into a relationship with someone or try to force you to confess to being interested in someone that you are not interested in like Haven does to Ever make some new ones If someone scares you and makes you uncomfortable get away from them This is an actual problem that this book normalizes women putting up with shit Ever puts up with being badgered into acknowledging Damen constantly This is pretty much a phenomenon within YA In fact it's a phenomenon within society in general This is what we're taught don't be a bitch or a prude or the angry girl Just humor him Smile be a ladyNo Fuck that Listen this is serious If you are not interested in someone or someone is making you feel uncomfortable you are not obligated to be polite to him If some dude comes and sits next to you on the bus and badgers you to talk you do not have to put up with it You do not have to talk back You do not have to be a lady and let him enjoy frightening youIf a dude sits next to you in class and makes comments about your body you do not have to sit there silent and ashamedIf a dude asks you for your number and you don't want to give it to him you do not have to pretend to forget it or give him a fake number to avoid an argumentIf a dude touches your body or your clothes in a way that makes you uncomfortable you don't have to make the effort to move or pretend not to notice it If your dude boss calls you crazy you don't have to laugh it off and take it on the chinIf your dude friend fetishizes your sexual preferences your clothing and your body size you don't have to try and twist it into a joke or pretend to enjoy the attention even though it makes you feel sickI have experienced all of the above scenarios and Say fuck off Say leave me alone Say I don't want to give you my number See this is the fucking problem with so many YA books like this one No is being muddied It's being replaced with maybe YA is telling young women that no means try again later It's this whole predatorprey formula that prowls around YA like a fucking snake in the grass etching the gender binary in stone What's it telling young women? Be pursued Even if you don't want to be That's what you're there for To be looked at to be touched to be courted To be prey And the vice versa is what it is telling young men you're the predator Push shout beat her down She's yours to look at to touch to court If she says no don't respect that Don't respect her at all Just keep pushing Eventually you'll wear her downThat's not consent That's coercion But hey Talkin' 'bout those blurred linesAnd the cycle goes around and around getting tighter and tighter and ingrained in society until we don't even know it's happening Until we don't think twice about sitting on a bus silently and passively while some guy stares at us from across the aisle licking his lips and make obscene gestures with his hands Until we don't say no for fear of being the bitch who broke the binaryI am almost done with YA especially paranormal YA It's just the most problematic shit How can we all be putting up with this? This is fucked This whole genre is fuckedI need a drink Let's just say that after reading this book I was unable to see a tulip without having a strong urge to kick it 🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷 Back when I read this book I didn't know what snark was Now that I do hehehehehehehe Now that I do and now that I remember everything that bothered me about this book I shall write snark Yes I shallMmmm snarkSo let me explain what I thought I was reading with this excellent meme Ah yes How Ever utterly reminded me of Bella Swan I cannot explain in this review I just cannot And how Damen reminded me of Edward Cullen I cannot explain in this review I JUST CANNOT The resemblances are ridiculously striking Noel's hero must be Stephenie Meyer right? I think so too The writingHoly crap How did Noel not see how absolutely dreadful her writing was? She must be stupid or blind Maybe a mixture of both I bit my lip hard I pressed my lips together I bit my lip hard I pressed my lips togetherI swear I knew about Ever's lips than Ever herself I'm sorry Such a crappy review that revealed nothing about how the book was I know but I honestly cannot No Just no Absolutely not I could NOT continue this book The only minute thing I found interesting was that the car accident managed to knock the dog's balls off somehow Other than that I couldn't stand any No no no no no Hell fucking shit no Having satisfied my curiosity about this popular YA series I can safely scratch the rest of the books and their author off my TBR list foreverThe book starts off OK mind reading auras family drama but very swiftly becomes just another pathetic Twilight rip off Same worn out story of an insecure girl falling for a mysterioussexydangerous paranormal guy same absent adults same love without really knowing each other same focus on outer beauty and expensive things same gazing into each other's eyes and same chaste sleeping in the same bed Well you know the drillThe characters are flat unrelatable stupid and acting out of character whenever it is convenient the relationships are shallow the style of narration is juvenile the mythology is full of holes the story itself is boring unoriginal unexciting and full of clichés Pretty much a waste of time Putting this next to other mediocre Twilight rip offs Shiver and Hush HushReading challenge #1 E This book warrants a full on GIF ridden review You've been warnedLet me start out by saying thisSoWe have Ever Yeah EVER Who names their kid EVER? There was also Honor Haven and Stacia but I digress Anyway who would play Ever in the movie? A light switch Think about it She loves him she hates him She loves him she hates him She loves him she wants to barf at the sight of himSo she almost died and now she has psychic powers Which by psychic powers she means being restricted to only wearing hoodies acting like a total loon constantly treating your friends like shit going deaf on heavy metal and generally being a lacking human being How does anyone deal with her kind of crazy? Throughout the whole book I never did get why she kept thinking psychic powershoodiesThen we have Damen with an E Not Damon with an OSee even Damon with an O thinks that's dumb Oh and Damen's last name is Auguste Was somebody really trying to recreate a Salvatore brother? Hm? Got a nice ItalianSpanish sounding name and dark hairand viola Now he's an immortal But he drinks weird red shit which is never fully explained and being red sparkly and keeping him immortal I can only assume is magical unicorn blood screws with people's heads is insanely fast and strong is psychic and down right creepy So I'm sorry Noel but you just invented the vampire Good for you IdiotAnd he falls for the emotionless creepy loner girl that is gorgeous but doesn't seem to notice ala Edward Cullen And thus the selfish stupidity ensues He flirts with her then her worst enemy then her then the enemy again Then a bunch of pointless teenage drama happens They make out She decides she hates him because???? I never could follow why she hated him half the time Because he didn't give up his phone number??? Somebody dies Ever worries about Damen than the dead girl Her best friend almost dies She worries about Damen than the best friend Oh and let's not forget she's seeing the ghost of her dead sister and kinda holding her hostage saying things to the tune of I can't lose you too I know you're giving up Heaven and our parents but STILL I need you here Deal I haven't seen this much selfishness sinceuhTwilight And that brings me around to the Twilight rip off checklist1 vampire oops I mean immortal check2 human love interest check3 mind reading check4 emotionless main character check5 stupid red haired bad girl bent on killed MC check6 strange lovey feelings near vampire immortal whatever check7 MC hating her life and being ungrateful of everything and everyone checkI'm sure there's but you get the point If you take a shot for every similarity you'll be dead in minutesI hated this book Especially when it came down to the power of love saving the fucking day Yes we pulled a Halo and love wins the war Damen's wife I repeat WIFE is angry he's in love with someone else shocker and Ever kills her Granted Drina was a crazy bitch but she WAS married to Damen and all She punches her in the chest the heart chakra and it kills her because she's lacking in love and Ever has so much? I Just StaredSomebody thumped an immortal's breastbone and she croaked No there's no punchline I didn't make it up This shit really happened A 600 year old immortal vampire whatever got taken down by a whiny little teenager with a girly punchAnd what was Damen doing BOTH times Ever the supposed love of his life was fighting for her life against his wife? Not coming to her rescue until he was sure she really wanted to live Let that sink in he refused to come save her until she voiced and voiced believably that she really didn't want to DIE Your wife is beating the shit out of the woman you love and you don't DO ANYTHING?The whole story made me sick It made no effing sense Summerland Sparkly red drinks Damen screwing with her memories and trying to convince her she didn't really see him bleeding her bestie on the living room rug The power of LOVE saving the day SMHEver has some pretty serious trauma to deal with but every time someone offer her counseling help with her powers a shoulder to cry on she flips the fuck out and gets defensive Like helping her NOT be a nut is the worst idea on the planet Like the other psychic who is trying to help her let go of her guilt is the BAD GUY Instead she chooses to self medicate with vodka drive drunk and get expelled I wanted to smack Ever With a fish Plus the story was so easy to figure out I didn't even have to finish the damn book to know what hadwouldwas happening There was no real surprise although the acid induced Summerland place was a bit of a weird shocker More like a scene thought up while high than anything relevant To sum it up this book made my angry Ever was ungrateful bitchy emotionless I can't figure out how Damen is in love with her insta love of all things And Damen is the Edward Cullen wannabe creepy sneak into your room and watch you sleep kinda stalkerThe other characters were rather pointlessIn conclusion What I wanted to do when I finished this stupid book I absolutely loved this book It is a bit of an easy read but well worth it I felt as though the author had taken some of my favorite young adult books and blended them into one solid story This is basically a young adult romance novel with a supernatural twist It had some humor peppered throughout it but it was mostly just sweet Damen was an interesting character but he did irritate me with the Drina situation I won't say because I do not want to spoil it I completely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good YA supernatural romance
