Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

Blue Moon by Alyson Noel (unabridged audiobook read by Katie Schorr; 8 hrs on 7 discs): Blarg. When we last saw them, Ever and Damon were both immortal and Damon’s evil ex was out of the picture for good. Now Damon’s pressuring Ever into sex (he has been waiting four hundred years to bed her, after all) but she’s all caught up in the fact that he has four hundred years of conquests under his belt while she’s still a 16-year-old virgin. A new guy named Roman shows up and everybody except Ever loves him (she’s totally suspicious); Damon starts getting sick for some reason; and the whole thing is just kind of exasperating. I’d worried that the series would move toward omg twu wuv and away from the parts that were actually interesting in the first book, and so it has. It ends on a sort-of cliffhanger, and I found I simply did not care. I won’t be going out of my way to continue the series.

Evermore by Alyson Noel

Evermore by Alyson Noel (unabridged audiobook read by Katie Schorr; 8 hours on 7 discs): After surviving the car crash that killed the rest of her family, 16-year-old Ever gains the abilities to hear thoughts and see auras. Damen is the ridiculously hot new guy in school who catches Ever’s attention when she discovers he alone is immune to her telepathy. Comparisons to Twilight are inevitable, but unlike Bella, Ever has both a soul and a backbone. She doesn’t let Damen or anyone else walk all over her, and she genuinely cares about her family and friends. I had fun with this one, amused by some of the teenage silliness and intrigued by the speculations on immortality and reincarnation. In fact, Damen and Ever’s relationship was possibly the least interesting part. My favorite character was Riley, Ever’s dead little sister who still visits almost every day. I don’t know that I’ll necessarily read the rest of the series, for fear that it will focus too narrowly on the OMG-eternal wuv between Ever and Damen, but I definitely enjoyed this story.
