Yeah I'm a bookworm or haven't you noticed??
This is the Evernight Series - 4 books total to come from Claudia Grey. LOVE it so far! Totally preteen ok - a little scary but not horrible, there are some books that talk of ghosts, goblins and such and I just can't read them at night. This series is one of them due to the ghosts in the second book and me having to have a nightlight... stop laughing!
The first if Evernight -
When the story begins in Evernight, Bianca has just left the small town where she's spent her whole life. She's a new student at Evernight Academy, a creepily Gothic boarding school where her classmates are somehow too perfect: smart, sleek and almost predatory. Bianca knows she doesn't fit in.
Then she meets Lucas, another loner, who seems fiercely determined not to be the "Evernight type." There's a connection between Bianca and Lucas that can't be denied. She would risk anything to be with him—but dark secrets are fated to tear them apart... and to make Bianca question everything she's ever believed to be true.My Notes:
I picked it up in the store and after the first two pages, knew it was for me. Easy read, teen romance, teen girl somewhere she doesn't want to be and disobeys but loves her parents... normal first book - gets you wanting more ;)
Second book - Stargazer -
Stargazer returns to Bianca's story a few months later. Both she and Lucas will stop at nothing to see each other again—even if it means living a life of secrets and lies. But even as Bianca finds herself torn between two worlds, she soon discovers they aren't the only ones keeping secrets. Will powerful forces within Evernight Academy keep her from deciding her own fate, or claim her forever?
My Notes: This is where the action is... more romance, ghosts - again - read in the daylight lol, more twists and turns that shock ya... she ends it wanting more and thankfully the next book is already out! I've got it on its way :)
