Advent Calendar – Day 7

BB B11 (2).jpg

Hello! Can you believe it’s already the 7th of December. I think my brain is still on Halloween time. But nevertheless it is time for a new post. Today I want to try something new and if I like it I might just keep it past this. What is this new thing you say? Well thanks for asking. It’s called Go Ahead Gush. Basically any series/book maybe even movies I absolutely loved will be featured. I’ll review, let you know about it, and then maybe just gush over how much I couldn’t stop reading. Maybe you can find a new love here too.

So let’s go!


Everless by Sara Holland

In the kingdom of Sempera, time is currency—extracted from blood, bound to iron, and consumed to add time to one’s own lifespan. The rich aristocracy, like the Gerlings, tax the poor to the hilt, extending their own lives by centuries.

No one resents the Gerlings more than Jules Ember. A decade ago, she and her father were servants at Everless, the Gerlings’ palatial estate, until a fateful accident forced them to flee in the dead of night. When Jules discovers that her father is dying, she knows that she must return to Everless to earn more time for him before she loses him forever.

But going back to Everless brings more danger—and temptation—than Jules could have ever imagined. Soon she’s caught in a tangle of violent secrets and finds her heart torn between two people she thought she’d never see again. Her decisions have the power to change her fate—and the fate of time itself.

This book might be my top read of this year next to Sky in the Deep. The story was rich and new and ugh I loved it. Since the next one is coming out this month, Evermore, I figured why not spend a bit of time just gushing over it.

I loved it so much I purchased not just the US hardback but the UK version plus my paperback just came in. I plan to reread before the new one comes out at the end of this month. Of which I bought both the US and UK versions again. The covers are just so different and beautiful. How could I not! (Apparently I bought the UK paperback and hardback, OOPS!!!!!) 3 Copies of Evermore and 4 of Everless is fine. Not too many at all!

I mean look at them all. Yes I do have the ARC too. Traded for it. I’m obsessed I know.

Haven’t read this yet? Been on the fence? Well check out my review and maybe try it out yourself?

My Thoughts:

A story that begins as revenge turns into so much more. An original story that takes a look at blood money and the difference between classes. If our blood was the money used to pay for everything. The poor bleed their lives away while the rich stay young for hundreds of years by consuming the blood coins of others.

Each character has not just a back story but an elusive past that becomes clearer with each chapter. Who is who and who is the real villian of the story.
I have to say I was skeptical but I loved this story. It was so original and the plot was something that kept you guessing until the very end.

Interested? Check it out on Goodreads or Amazon. Read the first one before the second epicness of Evermore comes out at the end of this month. Links are below.
