Through the Ever Night (Under the Never Sky, #2)

Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi

Published by HarperCollins on January 8, 2013

Genres: Science Fiction, Romance, Young Adult

Pages: 341

Love is a rebellious bird that nobody can tame.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Unsurprisingly, the sequel to Under the Never Sky took me only a day to complete.

Captivating, well-paced, and packed with more urgency than the first book, it breaks the second-book-lull so often seen in trilogies.

She looked up. “A world of nevers under a never sky.”
She fit in well then, he thought. A girl who never shut up.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

To jump start my never-ending reading slump, I wanted to revisit this series since it was something I’ve thought about for a long time now. I read these for the first time back in 2013 and I am so glad I picked it back up. Not only is the book still good, but it’s addicting and I read it in only a couple days.

“It’s not insane to imagine that sometimes even horrible people are searching for a way out of their own darkness.”

 

After spending the better part of the last year moping since the release of Restore Me, I’ve been anticipating reading this. I needed answers for the excruciating cliffhanger Tahereh Mafi left us with and Defy Me had all the answers.

“One love fated. One love endless.”

 

 

 

After years and years and years and years of waiting, The Dark Calling finally landed in my hands.

Ok, that may have been a little dramatic, but it has been a long time. It blows my mind I’ve been reading this series since 2013 and I still love it now as much as I did then. Continue reading “The Dark Calling (The Arcana Chronicles, #5)”

I desired you before, but I never loved you until this life.

 

 

 

Kresley Cole never fails to end her books with a heart stopping cliff hanger. This cliffhanger is much worse, in my opinion, than the one in Poison Princess because I honestly don’t know what’s going to happen next. Continue reading “Endless Knight (The Arcana Chronicles, #2)”

I was no longer the collector. I was the collected, the hunted – a specimen to test.

 

 

This was my first (real) Adult book and it was pretty good. Continue reading “City in Embers (Collector, #1)”

Every Last Breath by Jennifer L. Armentrout

The kiss was almost too powerful, too primitive. It ripped open the ball of dread that rested low in my belly, because it was the kind of kiss wrought from the fear of losing someone, and that made our situation all the more real.

It made what I had done all the more painful.
