Rather Be Reading: Magan's Farewell to 2013 - […] felt Veronica Rossi did a fantastic job of bringing the world to life in Through the Ever Night. I loved the first book in the series, Under the Never Sky, but dang did I feel even more hooked […]

Magan - We’ve since tweeted about this and I AM SO HAPPY YOU ENDED UP LOVING IT! Go, Hannah! You’re going to love, love, love Roar in TtEN. Dang! So good!

January 21, 2013 - 4:23 pm

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - I just started reading Under the Never Sky yesterday (I know, I know), but I already bought this one because I’m anticipating wanting to read it as soon as I’m done with the first book. I’m crazy, right?

I’m like 30% through and definitely need more info on what’s going on. Rossi just throws you right into the story, doesn’t she? I’m a little confused on some of this business, not going to lie.

Magan - Asheley — READ IT! READ IT! READ IT! 🙂

January 14, 2013 - 12:27 pm

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - Oh yay!!

I won a signed copy of this from Epic Reads several weeks ago and I’m DYING to get it in the mail. It seems like everyone has already read it and I’m having the most whiny of all fits because I WANT IT NOW WAHHH. Okay, I’m over that.

That being said, I literally DID just do a re-read of Under the Never Sky via audiobook recently and it was SO GOOD the second time around. And then I read the little novella. So I’m SO ANXIOUS to dive right into this story since everything is so fresh into my mind. I’m so excited that EVERYONE is loving it, and it seems like everyone is loving it at least as much or maybe even better than the first book. YAYYY!!!

January 13, 2013 - 2:49 pm

Magan - Anna — I don’t think I have a good answer. I LOVE THEM BOTH. EQUALLY.
Brittany — Yes! Natural is a great word to describe their relationship. It just worked. Le sigh…
Taylor — I hope you enjoy it just as much if not MORE!
Hemborgwife — you most certainly need to have this series in your life! 🙂

January 13, 2013 - 2:45 pm

Magan - Keertana — Yes! Me too! Ay yi yi! I just love all the characters! Can’t wait (well, I can because I don’t want it to end) to see how this wraps up!
Rachel — Haha! YES, your library does. I can’t wait to hear what you think about it. Roar = AWESOME.

January 13, 2013 - 2:43 pm

Magan - Mandee — YES, YES! Read UtNS SOON! 🙂

January 12, 2013 - 4:35 pm

VeganYANerds - I’ve skimmed this because I am yet to read UtNS (I know, I know!) but I promise it’s on my read-soon list!!

January 10, 2013 - 6:57 pm

Keertana @ Ivy Book Bindings - Yay! I’m so glad you loved this one! I just adored it and I was so pleasantly surprised by the direction Rossi chose to make this novel go in. I can’t wait for the sequel now and definitely Aria and Perry – not to mention Roar! LOVE HIM! 😀

January 10, 2013 - 3:15 pm

Rachel - MY LIBRARY NEEDS TO HURRY UP AND GIVE ME THIS BOOK. The wait is torture. I have heard nothing but good about TtEN. I’m so happy we get to see more of Roar. I loveeee him!

January 10, 2013 - 12:33 pm

Anna - PERRY OR ROAR: WHO DO I LOVE MORE? Decisions, decisions…

January 10, 2013 - 12:31 pm

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - I agree! I think Aria & Perry’s relationship felt much more natural in TtEN and I LOVED seeing so much more of Roar! I’m pretty sure I liked this one even more than UtNS! 🙂

January 10, 2013 - 10:31 am

Taylor @ Reading is the Thing - I loved Under the Never Sky, I can’t wait to read this one! Great review!

January 10, 2013 - 6:43 am

Hemborgwife - This sounds good I will need to search where I can get the first book!

Jasmine Rose - I’m glad to hear you enjoyed it because I’m always kind of fascinated by revenge stories so I’ve been looking forward to this one.
I went to such a small school that we actually didn’t have much of a popularity hierarchy. There were a few kids always got picked on throughout the years, but it wasn’t the throw-them-in-a-garbage-and-humiliate-them-in-front-of-the-whole-cafeteria type of stuff you always read about and see on tv. It’s sad to hear that stuff like what happened to your friend is really out there :[

September 6, 2012 - 5:41 am

Lori - I’m going to go ahead and admit that I scrolled to the end of your review to see if you recommended it first. 🙂 I really love Siobhan Vivian’s books so I’ve been really looking forward to this one. Now I’m even more excited. It’s nice that you could relate so well to it.

September 6, 2012 - 4:12 am

Kristen Evey - Hm, intriguing! This sounded interesting to me from the summary (though I’m with you, and revenge type books are iffy for me). I think this is something that I would enjoy though. Sounds like the writing is top-notch, and I can basically get through any kind of plot if that’s the case. Great review!

September 5, 2012 - 1:16 pm

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I really liked this book! I don’t necessarily condone anything done in it, but I do like the fact that I can understand where each of the girls is coming from. Can’t wait till I get a finished copy!

September 5, 2012 - 4:14 am

VeganYANerds - I know what you mean about wondering why bullies are the way they are, sometimes I read YA and think “come one, people don’t actually go that far” but it turns out they really do. I felt the same way, I could understand the girls wanting revenge but they went to extreme lengths and I was definitely all “What just happened?” at the end!

September 4, 2012 - 11:03 pm

Lisa - This book makes my heart hurt and my skin crawl in the best possible way.

Reading books like this is so hard, but so necessary. How else can we relate to other people’s experiences?

Sorry to be all Debbie Downer. For reals this sounds awesome and HELLO Han and Vivian? YESPLS.

September 4, 2012 - 10:04 pm

Aneeqah - I actually won a copy of this on Twitter, and my copy is going to get here tomorrow! (What, you don’t stalk your books with DC?! ;)) Anyways, I can definitely see how you thought the revenge was unnecessary, I believe that you can avoid revenge and settle things peacefully as well. However, it’s great to hear that the POVs are really distinct! I love when you can easily distinguish each character. =) And the action in the last part of the book sounds amazing!!

Fabulous review Magan! I am even more excited to read this book now. <3

September 4, 2012 - 5:29 pm

elena - I’m SOOO curious about this one! I like revenge stories (to a degree) and this sounds V INTRIGUING. It sounds like the authors did a great job writing the characters and I’m eager to find out more about them.

September 4, 2012 - 3:19 pm

Jamie - Omg this review makes me even more excited to read this one! I’ve been eyeballing it on my shelf since BEA but I’m SO bumping it up after praise from you!

September 4, 2012 - 10:44 am

Tara - This one is on my to-read list and I plan on getting to it every soon. You review is making me even THAT more excited to read it and I can’t wait to see this explosive ending 🙂
