Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring… until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something… unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.


Hello to the Book World,

This a busy week but don’t worry, I am back on track and here to give you the next book! This weeks books is OBSIDIAN by Jennifer L. Armentrout! If you guys read my review for Alienated, you will know how much I love intergalactic stories, and this book involves the two things I love most about it: Aliens and Alien Boys.

I was browsing my Goodreads suggestions looking, praying for a new book to obsess over and I saw Obsidian. The cover did not really appeal to me but because I don’t judge, I checked out the description and I was hooked! With minimum slow parts and many action scenes, Jennifer Armentrout does a great job of keeping people hooked on Katy and Daemon’s story.

One thing I really liked about this book is how they didn’t become a couple at all during the book. Only at the end when Daemon says that he likes her, she basically pushes him off because he had only made fun of her all year (Go Katy). I am really glad she is gonna make him work for it instead of giving in helplessly like many girls in books.

“The day my internet was hooked up was better than having a hot guy check out my butt and ask for my phone number.”

Katy Swartz is hot headed and relatable, all the ingredients for a totally lovable character. Her first appealing quality is she is a book nerd! Has a book blog? Check! Blogs are better than vlogs t-shirt? Double Check! Book nerds reading a story of a book nerd, who ever thought that was possible? She is completely adorable and easy to get hooked on which is why this book is definitely shelved in my favorites.

So Yes, this was fluffy and exciting and I recommend it to everyone trying a YA book for the first time! If this book is not to your liking, Email Me! I love hearing your opinions!
