**THERE ARE TONS OF SPOILERS AHEAD**
**READ AT YOUR OWN RISK**
**NO, BUT SERIOUSLY**
**DON’T GO ON IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE HANDBOOK**

**OKAY, DON’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU**
Oh. My. Goodness.
I recently finished The Ever Never Handbook, and I’m still grinning like a total dufus. The book, engulfed in vibrant color and bursting with a familiar sort of magic, completely blew me and my (rather ...more
I am completely amazed by this handbook. If you're a SGE fan, I definitely recommend buying a copy because of the level of interaction (ex/quizzes).
Graphics: 4/4 (2/2).
All of the drawings were spectacular. Ever wondered what the School for Good and Evil looked like? Drawings of uniforms, the schools, the Trial by Tale, the former students — this handbook has all of that and more. This definitely did not disappoint!
I can say almost ...more
I would say I enjoyed it, and I think I would recommend this companion book to anyone that just wants something extra to read from this world, and wants to know more. It is filled with details on how the school runs, it's students, teachers, deans, alumni, and how quests work.
⚠️DISCLAIMER- if you have not read the first 3 books, and decide to read this, you will be spoiled for a lot of stuff
Personally some parts I found funny and enjoyable to read ( Hester's additions, student infor ...more
And so not really a complete book with a story, but still all kinds of incredible. And I loved reading it again so very much. It is still perfect. And there is still ...more
Companion books are usually of the lame variety. I’ve read many and the only thing that made me enjoy them was my love for that series, not because the novella itself was spectacular. There are exceptions, of course, like Ryan Graudin’s Iron To Iron and… “The Ever Never Handbook” by Soman Chainani, because
What a bundle of fun! I speak with utmost honesty and from the bottom of my heart, it is delightful.
a) It does a STELLAR job of exploring the history of the School for Goo ...more
And I was absolutely right. This book is exactly what it says it is: It’s a guide for a first year student on what to expect from the school for good and evil and it’s hilarious at times and quite insightful too. Not only do the characters get ...more
Now I really want to reread SGE x3 before Q4G comes out 👀
My Rating: 4 stars

[MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR BOOKS #1-3]
I've been dying to get my hands on The Ever Never Handbook for the longest time. Thankfully, during the last major bookoutlet sale (that I took part of), I was able to get my hands on a copy. I've been totally in love with this series since the summer of 2015 and I'm so excited for the new spin-off ...more
This handbook is also useful for guiding you through the actual series of School for good and evil!
This was a really short read but it was amazing and full of wonderful art. We got to see a bit of what is happening with our Favorite characters after the New-Old war and the events of book 3. If that wasn't great enough we also got to see what I really hope are hint for what is happening in the next book in this amazing series. ...more
PLOT: Pretty self-explanatory from the title. It's the School of Good and Evil's handbook/yearbook.
MY THOUGHTS: This was charming! I couldn't be more satisfied with buying this. It's the closest I'm going to get for illustrated editions of these books. Which is truly a shame! Maybe I should message the author and put the thought in his head. Now there's an idea. More gorgeous artwork! This time in color! I'll talk about some of my favorites. The one that stood out the mos ...more
The illustrations made this book.
I loved reading about the School for Good and Evil in such a creative, personal way! I really felt like I was reading the yearbook publication. Honestly, I wish I could visit this world because it's just so quirky and fun!
I really don't have anything more to say.
Read this book. ...more
AND HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT.
(view spoiler)[ In one letter to Hester, Agatha was apparently emotionally ranting about Tedros, Camelot and school to her, and HOLY CRAP, WHY DID THE SENTENCE CUT OFF AT: "Every time we are alone, he keeps asking me to---" something like that, anyways, and at the end of the book, there was a (SQEEE) wedding invitation for Agatha's and Tedros's wedding, so maybe Tedros was trying to propose to Agatha?? And he was asking Sophie for advice???? Ma ...more
Taking place after the events of the Sophie and Agatha trilogy this gives us a little insight into what the characters are doing, where they're at and what's going on at the school. We get to see how Sophie has changed the school, implementing some of the most ridiculous rules and costumes. There is also just a hint of possible future stories (or it could be my wishful thinking).
The art ...more
Still did not appreciate Sophie being a self-centered little brat, buuuuuuut...
This was amazing even so. The art, the words, it was all just so GOOD! My favorite characters were given DESIGNS!!!
(Also, anybody else picking up those "new series" hints?? If that's really gonna happen, then uuuuuuugggggghhhhh just let it end with the bonus content! I don't like when authors do a "next generation" kind of deal... except in certain cases, but as for this series I feel like everything has be ...more
The sequels, A WORLD WITHOUT PRINCES and THE LAST EVER AFTER, debuted on the New York Times Bestseller List as well. Together, the books of the series have been on the ...more
