Evernight


I read this book for the " What's in a Name" challenge, but later found out it could also fall into the "Youth" Challenge and the "999" challenge. HA HA HA!

"Raquel whispered, " Don't you ever feel like there's something at this school that's....evil?" Her voice shook. " Do you believe in real evil?". Nobody had ever asked me that, but I knew the answer, " Yeah I do."

"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.
" The she meets Lucas. He's not the " Evernight type" either, abd ge kujes ut tgat 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 Biance, " and eventually they would."
" But the connection between Bianca and Lucas can't be denies. 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."

I love how fast I can read a teen/young adult book, I am not sure why that is, maybe me being stuck as a 18 year old in my head?!?!? Evernight was an extremely fast read, even at 327 pages. This book has great twists in it's story. I will give this book 4 stars!!

Until next time...
Happy Reading

I can't read all YA quickly. The one I am reading now, I can't read fast enough. I do love YA fiction!
