Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

Rating: 5/5 Stars

Genre: Paranormal

Release Date: 7/7/09

Also Reviewed for!

About the Book: Ever is now an immortal, and she’s eager to learn everything - from manifesting objects to visiting the paradise Summerland.

Things are looking up for Ever and Damen, who can finally be together. But just as Ever finds her power’s growing, Damen’s starts to fade. He’s becoming weak and he’s even starting to forget Ever.

Ever travels to Summerland to save Damen, but while there she discovers she might be able to save her family. Ever must choose which path she’ll take and who she’ll end up saving.

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: There is so much going on in this book that I don't want to say in the summary because I don't want to ruin it for you. All I can say is read this book!

I really enjoy sequels, but they also make me nervous, especially when I loved the first book as much as I did Evermore. But Alyson Noel surpassed all my expectations, and not only is Blue Moon an amazing sequel - it sets the bar for the rest of this series very, very high! Even if you didn't love Evermore, I really suggest you pick this one up. I think that Blue Moon is better than Evermore - which is saying A LOT since I loved the first one. When I reached the last page of this one, all I could say was “wow!” This is one series that I can't get enough of. (I don't know if I can wait until February to read book #3!)

There were numerous twists that kept me guessing. Just when I thought I had things figured out, I would get pulled in a new direction, which kept the book fast-paced and full of suspense - I had to keep turning the pages. There is a lot more focus on Ever and her growing powers and we also get to find more about Damen's past, which I enjoyed. I really liked the addition of Roman and the twins Romy and Rayne that Ever meets in Summerland. They added to the story but still have a lot of mystery surrounding them, so I’m eager to see how the many stories that were weaved together in Blue Moon will play out.

Another highly recommended book from Alyson Noel, I can’t wait to read more about Ever and Damen. The Immortals series is one you’ll want to get your hands on! You can read the first three chapters on Alyson's site here. (And yes, I know it starts out about Ever and Damen's love life and all that, but the book doesn't focus on that-you really need to read the whole thing-it gets amazing!)


  1. OMG your review makes me want the book more! I am SO jealous of you. I'm dying to read Blue Moon.

  2. This sounds so good! I still have Evermore in my TBR pile. I am wondering now if I should try and wait until the series is done. I hate having to wait on pins and needles for the next book :)

  3. I can't wait for the the 7th! It looks sooo good!

  4. Kate-Let me know what you think of it when you read it-I'm eager to talk to people about it.

    Debbie-I know, I hate waiting too and this one has a pretty annoying cliffhanger!

    Erica-I hope you get to read it-it was very good!


  5. Ooooh, this makes me want to read Evermore even more!!!!

  6. Hi, just wanted to let you know I have an award for you at my blog :)

  7. God i really can't wait to read this book! I haven't even read Evermore yet, but im just itching to buy them already! I love your blog!


  8. I'm so jealous that you've read this already! I can't wait to nab a copy, I think I have a hold on it at the library - hopefully they'll give it to me early ;).

  9. Evermore was SO good, and you make Blue Moon sound even better! Fortunately we only have to wait a few more days for this one to be released.


  10. Sounds awesome. I can't wait to read Evermore.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
