Evernight by Claudia Gray
I won this book in a recent giveaway, I wanted to read it because I had heard many different things about it; it was very similar to the House of Night and some mixed reviews. I decided that I needed to make my mind up for myself. On the note of similarities to the House of Night, I enjoyed this book far more than any of the House of Night series. This book worked vampires into a school setting in a different way with different mechanics in the vampires that was interesting and realistic as well as good to the storyline. The writing was fairly good, nothing out of the ordinary, but it provided all the necessary information. The characters were one of my favourite aspects of this book, I found Bianca to be strong and favor-able, and of the two male leads, I found that enjoyed Balthazar more than Lucas, he seemed more trustworthy and like-able to me. Overall, I would choose this book over the House of Night because not only does it have vampires in an academy, it also has a strong heroine, I give this book a 4/5.
