Some Books Ago: Nevermore by Kelly Creagh

Every Tuesday I post about the new books I discover. So, I wanted to give a shout out to all those books published some years ago, I don't want to you to forget them!

Hi there! I hope you’re all having a great day.
Today, in Some Books Ago I want to give a shout out to Nevermore by Kelly Creagh.
I adored this book, and though I never had the chance to read the sequels I was in love with it. I remember it was fantastic. Nevermore is dark and thrilling and unexpected.
If you still haven’t read it, maybe now is the time to give it a chance!
Check it out, and have a great weekend!

Nevermore was published on August 31st 2010 by Atheneum Books for Young Readers



Cheerleader Isobel Lanley is horrified when she is paired with Varen Nethers for an English project, which is due—so unfair—on the day of the rival game. Cold and aloof, sardonic and sharp-tongued, Varen makes it clear he’d rather not have anything to do with her either. But when Isobel discovers strange writing in his journal, she can’t help but give this enigmatic boy with the piercing eyes another look.

Soon, Isobel finds herself making excuses to be with Varen. Steadily pulled away from her friends and her possessive boyfriend, Isobel ventures deeper and deeper into the dream world Varen has created through the pages of his notebook, a realm where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life.

As her world begins to unravel around her, Isobel discovers that dreams, like words, hold more power than she ever imagined, and that the most frightening realities are those of the mind. Now she must find a way to reach Varen before he is consumed by the shadows of his own nightmares.

His life depends on it.



  1. I remember seeing a lot of this author and the series years ago, when I was in my teen years! I have not read the books though. Probably not my thing. :o Great post, Lis!

    1. Oh, I loved this one, but I didn't read the sequels. I don't know why I lost interst.

  2. I have never heard about this book, but it's probably because I started reading in English only three years ago! While reading the synopsis, it totally felt like it was written in 2010, because it seemed full of tropes. Now, I know that back in the day I'd have loved it, but now I don't think I would, because I got better at detecting tropes ;)

    1. I don't think I'd read it now, either. But back then I really enjoyed it.

  3. I really enjoyed this one a lot too! I read it when it first came out, but I haven't finished the rest of the series yet either. One day I'll get around to it.

    1. I keep thinking the same! Maybe someday!

  4. I think I have this one on my GR list of books because I thought it sounded fantastic! Maybe I should gave it a try!

  5. I read and loved the first book but I think after that there was a looonng wait for the next two and I forgot about them. But I think they are now all out, so I can binge read them all :)
