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

I really enjoyed this book. It was a vampire book, which immediately grasped my interest. The writing was very refreshing and easy to read. The plot was very interesting, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Although there a lot of vampire books out there today, this one was different. These vampires were not "vegetarians" and were more of the stereotypical vampires. It was a different experience and a very interesting one at that. I really liked the setting, I mean an eerie gothic academy just screams vampires! This book sets up a great series and makes you excited to read the next installment. 

The characters were well done. I liked all of the students being portrayed as clothing conscience were very interesting. I liked finding out their true story and reason for being they way they are. Raquel was very cool. She's the kind of best friend I would want to have. She isn't explored much in this book, but I really enjoyed her presence. Bianca was a good protagonist. I liked her. She was realistic, but still unpredictable. I feel like I didn't get to know her as well as I wish i could, but there is still more time in the series. Ohmigosh Lucas... swoon. His part in the plot was just terrific and an amazing twist. It was completely shocking, but still not too outlandish. Lucas was so sweet and nice and just great boyfriend material. I'm looking forward to him in the next book. 

The ending was very creative. I really was surprised and left wanting more. I cannot wait to read the next book to see what's in store for Lucas and Bianca. I'm really excited. Evernight Academy is definitely a place I would love to be a part of because of the mystery surrounding it!

My Favorite Part: Lucas's role in the plot and story. I loved the romance between him and Bianca.

Do I recommend this book? Yes it is quite a change from other vampire books.

Will I be reading the next book? Yes! I already have it and cannot wait to start it.

Thanks for reading! I love having so many followers and viewers, it's a great feeling that you liked my blog enough to follow it. I know it has been awhile since I last posted, but I've been swamped at school and have been too busy to read. I'm reading a lot of books now though and will be beginning to post more readily now.  

It's a Book Thing
