Book Review- Evernight by Claudia Gray

Description provided by Goodreads:

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" either, 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.

My thoughts:

I love this book! It was exactly up my alley and read it as fast as I could so I could find out how it ended. It’s written to the point and flowed so smoothly I could barely put it down. It was fast paced and consisted of the most perfect elements: romance, mystery, surprise and paranormal history.

When I first picked up the book and read the description of the back, I bought it because it seemed like a book that differed from the usual genre I read. I started reading it and thought it was just about a girl who went to a boarding school with preppy, rich snobs. About halfway through the book, something so surprising happened, I actually down the book and just started at my roommate. I reread the back of the book, read the description on the back to my roommate and asked her what she thought it was about. Then I told her what happened in the book and asked her if she thought it was a paranormal type of book and she seemed just as surprised as I was. But don’t worry, it’s a good surprise; the kind that makes you want to read more and more so you can know what happens.

The purpose behind the Evernight boarding school is very interesting. I love the history that Gray puts in the book; it gives it a foundation and substance. Bianca also develops into a more mature vampire that eventually has to question what she has been taught.

Overall, the book was 100 percent worth reading and worth buying. I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of paranormal romance or vampire books. I hope my parents pre-order it for me for Christmas, even though I won't get it until February :(,so I can find out what happens between Bianca and Lucas!
