Check out my review of Shadows (Lux #0.5) Check out my review of Obsidian (Lux #1) Favorite Quote(s): There are just too many! “What are we going to do kitten?” My toes curled at the deep octave of his voice. “I don’t know.” “I have a few ideas.” I cracked a grin. “I’m sure you do.” “Wanna hear about them? Although, I’m much better at the show part rather than the tell.” “Somehow, I believe you.” “If you didn’t, I could always give you a teaser.” He paused, and I could hear the smile in his voice. “You bookish people love teasers, don’t you?” “‘Oh, I still want to strangle you. But i’m insane. You’re crazy. Maybe that’s why. We just make crazy together.’” “‘You didn’t come straight home after school.’ Annoyance colored his tone. Like he was my own screwed-up, super-hot version of the Secret Service and I’d managed to evade him.” Favorite Character: Daemon. Need I explain? First Line: “Ten seconds passed between when Daemon Black took his seat and when he poked me under the shoulder blade with his trusty pen.” My Musings: I’ve been trying to write this review for a few hours now, thinking about all that i’d say, and how to put my thoughts into words; I finally figured out that it is impossible–no words can describe how amazing this book was. I had high expectations […]

Favorite Quote(s): “‘I kind of wish they’d shut up,’ Jack said. ‘Dude, true dat,’ Lend answered. Jack nodded solemnly. ‘For serious.’” Favorite Character: Lend. I made a little acronym about him. See my musings for more details. First Line: “Here’s the thing about dragons: I know absolutely nothing whatsoever about them.” My Musings: What a great ending! I’m soooo disappointed that this story has come to a close. I personally loved everything about this series– the romance, the action, just everything! I actually cried when I finished; I was heartbroken that I don’t have anymore Evie and Lend to look forward to! Just like the rest of this series, the plot was in-captivating White’s innovative idea on paranormals is what drew me in in the beginning, and boy did she ever live up to my expectations! There was literally never a dull moment, possibly in the entire trilogy! The writing its self was detailed and descriptive, and it made it easy for me to transport myself into Evie’s world (as well as Lend’s arms (;). The characters were amazing. Evie’s character develops very much over the course of this series, and it was fun seeing her grow more serious and open up to love. Her longing for being normal was amazing; she would have given everything up for it. Her and Lend have to be my favorite literary couple, because they compliment each other so […]

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. “What was wrong? Everything. Nothing. I didn’t know. I couldn’t think. I felt as if the Milky Way, hovering above our heads like a celestial pitcher, had suddenly overturned, pouring suns and planets down my throat. Stars seemed to be shooting out of my fingers and toes, the ends of my hair.” Abandon, by Meg Cabot
Favorite Character: It’s really hard to say, because the characters aren’t very well developed in this prequel. See my review of Kiss of Frost for more information. First Line: “‘Can I borrow your hairbrush?’” My Musings: This prequel really didn’t do it for me. The only thing that it did was tell me things that I had already pieced together over the course of the actual series. Some things that I read, I had sworn were the exact same that I read in the actual novels. Henceforth, I didn’t gain much from it. The, typical to Estep, was great, but there really wasn’t much of a plot. It was more of an extra explanation. Overall, it is not a necessary read in order to understand the series in more depth, and if you’ve already read the series, you don’t need to worry about reading this prequel.
