  1. What if the person to be feared is me I know you shouldn t go into a book expecting the worst, but these days it s hard not to approach any new YA fantasy without some trepidation The genre is often tropey and unoriginal Publishers churn out versions of the same old story again and again It s hard to find the hidden gems among the pile But Everless really surprised me.It s not a perfect book by any means and Holland does fall into some traps commonly fallen into by debut authors namely, the huge [...]

  2. Ah yes, my first 1 star rating of 2018 I guess it s that time of year again where I become 1% human and the other 99% is just crippling disappointment.I can t overstate just how much I don t care about this book I m looking at everyone s five stars reviews and wondering if maybe we all truly live in different realities and the internet is the only commonly shared space which doesn t change across universes, because how is it possible to have such astronomically different attitudes towards a thin [...]

  3. Oh, I loved this Full of mystery, intrigue, and well, mystery The plot was super fun and unique, and for the life of me, I couldn t predict a thing Ladies and gentlemen, we have a page turner here I m pretty sure I read the whole thing in almost 24 hours I seriously couldn t set it down after the 20% mark.Really quick a big thank you to the publisher for providing me with an arc In a world where time is bound to blood, and people exchange blood time currency to live, we follow Jules, the protag [...]

  4. December Fairyloot with link to close up pics CLOSE UPSI was totally thinking this was going to be my first DNF book Boy did it prove me wrong and I m glad I kept going At first I thought this was going to be like that movie, In Time Was that the name of it BUT in this book you give your time in blood gross It s crazy and I probably have this a bit wrong, but the rich people take from the poor as usual They can take their blood for whatever reason they can think up and they also use it as punish [...]

  5. Release date January 2, 2018Every so often I find a book that I simultaneously want to shove at everyone I see, yet also keep hidden secret because I just love it SO MUCH I really don t have the right words to explain how much I adored this entire story It s easily one of the best YA fantasy books I ve ever read and totally a new favorite Jules lives in a world where time is drawn from blood and forged into the currency of blood iron coins, which the wealthy drink to live longer This isn t just [...]

  6. ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.Maybe I would have really enjoyed this if I hadn t read so much YA Fantasy Maybe a younger Melanie would have ate this up and asked for seconds Sadly, I m just at the point in my life where I feel like I ve read this all before.And the aspect of this story that is really cool and different is the everyone s lifespan is their currency In this world, you can bind your blood to iron to make coins And they come in amounts o [...]

  7. You know what most captivated me The PLOT TWISTS HOLY WOW I was actually really nervous going into this because I d seen a lot of mixed reviews But I buddy read with my fabulous friend Danielle and we both ended up thinking it was pretty good OK so the premise about turning time into money is REALLY awesome.Nooo not unique, haha, I have seen In Time But I loved the epic fantasy esque spin to it And there was so much world building done around this that I was super impressed Although I really do [...]

  8. DNF 157 This conversation probably will happen when I have grandchild in the future.Me reads a book on a couch My Grandchild Grandma Me Yes, my dear My Grandchild Will you tell me a story, please Me puts the book down Me Alright, I ll tell you a story My Grandchild sits down on a couch beside me eagerly Me Once upon a time, there was a girl who loved reading books so much or rather too much She spent all her free time by reading books, because she thought there was no better companion than books [...]

  9. This is like a better Red Queen And honestly a whole lot wilder Okay Guys, I fully admit that this is not the Most high quality thing I ve ever read But god, if it wasn t entertaining This is an odd book because it has some tropes but isn t completely those tropes Everless sets up a few tropes and then proceeds to play with them, instead of falling into them so much that it feels predictable I had several guesses as to plot twists at the beginning, but as the book continued, I realized this book [...]

  10. DNF Sorry, I can t do it I know this review is going to be wildly unpopular, seeing as this book currently sits at a 4.17 average rating and most of my friends seem to be loving it, but I could not get into this book to save my life The only unique thing about it was the whole time currency aspect, which I hesitate to call original, seeing as I seem to be one of very few people who remembers that Justin Timberlake Amanda Seyfried movie In Time The writing feels trope y, and I just couldn t bring [...]

  11. Really enjoyed this story I have not read a fantasy in a while which feels unique This ticked that box

  12. This won Book of the Month on my blog for December 2017 littlemissnosleep.wordpress.cFirstly, I think the cover is absolutely gorgeous If it hadn t been for the alluring cover, I may not have even been tempted to read this book This thought now shocks me I don t read a lot of fantasy or young adult fiction, as my love for it seems to be a bit hit and miss I sometimes find young adult fiction too shallow or angsty, and my ability to connect with fantasy really depends on how well developed the ch [...]

  13. Everless was my last read of 2017 and boy am I grateful that I am ending the year with such a great read The world building in this story is absolutely phenomenal and so unique y all I loved the concept of combination of time into fantasy science fiction and fantasy are two of my favourite genres and although Everless was purely fantasy, I still enjoyed the incorporation of time into a world of queens and magic very much A big thanks to Netgalley for offering me an ARC for one of my most anticip [...]

  14. 4.5 STARS Buddy read with someone who hates Roan s timestopping eyesEverless is one of my most anticipated release of 2018 and boy was the wait absolutely worth it I finished this so fast and I was sucked right in from the very first page I honestly need the next book right now like wtf What I liked 1.The world building YASSSSSS YAS YAS YASSS I LOVE THE PLOT AND THE STORY AND THE WORLDBUILDING I LOVE IT SO MUCH I MEAN TIME AS MONEY YES YES YES2.The mystery I was so invested in what is ya know th [...]

  15. Imagine a world where time is used as currency, extracted from the blood in your very veins turned into blood iron coins A plethora of ideas may pop into your head including the possibility of robbers in the form of bleeders to steal time from you The world building here is fantastic asSara Holland creates a world where the rich tax the poor, ultimately having centuries to live while the poor are continually struggling to get food on their table and pay their taxes or rent The issue isif you can [...]

  16. I m just sitting here STUNNED y all I FEEL BETRAYED BY THE AMOUNT OF PLOT TWISTS THE AUTHOR THREW AT ME.The last 80 or so pages are just plot twist, after plot twist, after plot twist, after, you guessed it ANOTHER PLOT TWIST Yes, there were that many While I did see a few of them coming the vast majority I would have never guessed.Things I liked Liam Honestly at this point is anyone surprised with me I knew there was that meets the eye with himIf he was portrayed as a villain for this entire s [...]

  17. Meh The I think about it, the it s a 3 starsMini spoiler free review.Buddy Read with JasmineSo I m just going to give a mini review because like I said, I feel so ill at the moment The basis of the book was really interesting a persons time was represented by blood money, so often the poor would die young and the rich would live for many years In the first few chapters a lot of information is thrown at you with different back stories and it was a lot to take in at some points.Some of the chara [...]

  18. Woah, I enjoyed this than I expected to It was slightly predictable and cliche in places, but was also full of surprises too I loved the world building and learning about the back story of the mythology or the world I loved all of the characters too as their depths developed and grew over the book I honestly wish I d read this quicker than I did, I read the majority of the book within about half a day aha, it was slow going at first, but that was mainly due to being really busy and not having [...]

  19. Thoughts now that I ve simmered down a little and my brain works Holy This book originally caught my eye a while ago with its interesting premise and beautiful cover, let s face it and as soon as I started reading it, it drew me in SO rapidly I inhaled it in less than 24 hours.Now, fantasy for me has never been one of my favourite genres I usually find it a bit daunting learning new worlds, words and the mythology that comes with it and therefore I read at a slower pace than I normally would any [...]

  20. 3.5 5This was such a unique story Seriously The whole idea of being able to drink time to live longer was something I ve never read about before So yay for originality However, the biggest downside was how the story started slowly however, luckily, it picked up towards the middle and end.Since this is Sara Holland s debut novel, I m quite impressed with her originality Normally, all YA fantasy novels have similar qualities an obvious romance, similar plot, characters, etc Not with this one, thou [...]

  21. The first thing I thought when I read the summary for this book was that terrible movie In Time with Justin Timberlake Come to find out it was a lot like that but a fantasy version I found there was some creative aspects, but than anything there was a whole lot of nonsense and soap opera feels Is it possible soap opera fantasy can be a thing Because that s what this is It was also a mixture of several other fantasies I have read.My main pet peeve was this girl was so in love with this guy, Roan [...]

  22. I loved this story so much Such a fun plot and different I cannot wait for next book This is definitely one you need to read

  23. What A WONDERFUL surprise I absolutely adored this masterpiece of a novel When I try to think of what book I want to read next, a weekly occurrence, I immediately think back to this story time after time after time I read this the first week it came out, yet I ve been backlogged horribly on time with which to write a review it so rightfully deserves I was sick, then husband, then daughter then fast forward and daughter gets it again and BLAH just TOO MUCH so I waited And I waited And I waited An [...]

  24. Actual Rating 2.5 starsIf I wanted to give this a mark out of 100, it is going to be exactly 50%, no and no lessYou see, if I hated something it will be balanced by another thing that I liked The idea is not new, I saw the movie In time eons ago and liked the idea very muchSo I was intrigued by the idea of a book about it and the similarities were obviousI slept 6 times while reading the first 6 chapters and actually considered DNFing this but that was probably a transient slump which ended aft [...]

  25. I have seen and read a lot of reviews praising this book But honestly, I do not think it is that good The premise is definitely interesting Being able to sell and steal time The upper class living long past their time on stolen time and the poor forced to give up their time, their lives, just to get by All interesting concepts But for most of the book, I felt like nothing of significance happened Jules was fine as a protagonist, but I never really connected with her I found her infatuation with [...]

  26. Ughhhhhhh Almost a love triangle Pretty Mediocre Gift With Awesome Wrapper Concept 4.0 5.0Execution 2.0 5.0 Characters Bespoken 2.5 5.0Cover 5.0 5.0Until like chapter 22 And then of sudden Reading the blurb it did imprison me to start it instantly Time as the Currency, human blood turned into iron blood coins, royal time bank I expected world building, plot line would be as unique as the concept But it shattered my every sky rocketing expectation being mediocre So much vagueness and totally anno [...]

  27. UMMMM THIS WAS AMAZING 5 stars purely because I didn t predict the twists AT ALL and all my guesses were WAY OFF

  28. if you really think that i, a brokeass student who usually gets all his books secondhand, would pay a couple of quid for the US version because the UK version is ugly as shit, then you are 101% correct why am i like this

  29. Real rating 3.5 starsIt s possible to feel joy and grief at the same time It s possible to look forward to the horizon while mourning what you ve lost.The first word that comes to my mind when talking about this book is promising a promising debut, a promising characters, a promising plot and a promising development of all the above components in the sequel A lot of people compare Everless with Red Queen and movie In Time I agree about the latter but disagree about the former I don t see connect [...]

  30. 2.5 starsI m starting to think I m in a rut considering the last 3 books I ve read have been rated 2 stars And now we have a fourth This is not a good sign.When I rate something 2 stars, I don t necessarily hate the book They have some positive traits in them but the negatives outweigh them Everless, while a decent read, was lacking.Everless tells the story of Jules, a girl trying to make ends meet with just her and her father living in a small town In their world, blood can be drained and made [...]
