Will their love pass its greatest test?

Everlasting (The Immortals) - Alyson Noel

Will their love be EVERLASTING?
Ever and Damon have loved and lost each other for hundreds of years - facing deadly enemies, dark secrets and a powerful curse. Now their love will be tested to its limit.
Ever and Damon finall have the chance to discover their true destiny. The choice they're about to make will unite them - or tear them apart - forever.

OOFT :') the Immortals series and I have had our bad times and good times together. The books began to feel repetitive and nearly yawn worthy. BUT THIS, was amazingly fabulous. It was different, fresh and wonderful because I felt like Ever could finally do something on her own. Damon didn't have to be there to hold her hand. She had finally grown into a strong women, capable of more then she knew, and had learnt from her past mistakes. I thought she was wonderful in this book.

Damon on the other hand, annoyed me. He wasn't his usual peppy self, but I suppose they had to go through a big change, and that took its toll on him, poor thing. He was back to normal by the end, thank goodness!

There was still so many wonderful twists in this final installment of the series, and do they get the happy ending they so deserve? It left you wondering right up until the last second where you found out if they did, or if they didn't.

Fabulous book, and you must read the others in the series, I felt like I'd been on such a journey with Ever and Damon, and I felt like part of the story and their lives :'-)

My Book Boyfriend #6

Sorry it's been so long since I've done this post guys! I just haven't found anyone worthy enough to be MBB, but I've found someone recently!

My Book Boyfriend is a weekly Meme, hosted by Missie at The Unread Reader I will be taking part in this Meme (hopefully) every Wednesday where I will lust over my literary crush, who I would love to be part of my life. If possible, I will include the lucky boy's stats and some quotes. I will definitely be including a picture of how I imagine he looks like and reasons why I love him.

Today's lucky boy (man!) is Captain Rhett Butler, from Gone With The Wind. He was my favourite character all the way through the book!

He first becomes known at a barbecue, and gives our Main Character (MC) a 'devilish stare and a grin of treachery' which just made my stomach just go a little bit quivery...
He has a bad reputation which follows his introduction in the novel as our MC Scarlett is given the gossip about the newcomer.
  • He is gifted with suave and dashing looks
  • His hair is short and jet black
  • The mustache on his face curves with his sardonic smile
  • His hazel brown eyes give a piercing look
  • And his hands are both strong and steady (making it easy for him to become the best 'shot' in Atlanta)
  • His lips are firm, but they are practiced in meeting against a woman's softer lips
  • And his body far outstrips any other man's with his lean muscle and his skin is tanned and rough in the most weatherbeaten way
He mocks and taunts those he loves because he know's they are exactly the same as him, and that they will one day understand this, but also because he really isn't a gentleman and finds it amusing! He was a blockade runner during the Civil War, making money out of the nation being torn down and using it to his benefit in his attempts to win the love of our MC.

He is charming, but mocking at the same time, never serious but never joking and he is calm during a crisis except two that contain the two people he loved most in the world. He tells the cruel honest truth, because he wants no regrets and he is definately NOT a gentleman.

Funnily enough, not gentlemanly is just the way I like them ;-)

My Rhett Butler can be seen below :-D

Obviously imagine him in the dress code of the time, and an amused, cynical smile lifting the corners of his lips! He would be a charming guy to know. There's somthing about bad guys that are actually good just make me weak at the knees :-P

Love you long time Rhett!

In My Mailbox #6

Hello again my lovelies!
You probably have no idea who I am do you? It's been that long since I've posted, you've all forgotten me :-(
Ah well, I've actually got some things to post, whereas before I really didn't. Also, on the 24th you won't hear of me again til the 12th (ish) of August because I'm going away on the 22nd World Scout Jamboree!

So before this week, I recieved Gone with the Wind, The Princess Bride, Jane Eyre, and another book that I can't seem to remember.

Then this week I recieved EVERLASTING, the final installment of the Immortals Series.

I honestly cannot wait to read this, if any couple deserve some peace and happiness it's these two, the poor darlings have been chasing each other across the centuries and now finally have a chance of finding true happiness and being together. Hopefully.

Sorry it's so brief guys, I haven't really had much else, been far to busy to read, and Gone With The Wind is an alarmingly large book!
