Review: Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Check out my review of Shadows (Lux #0.5) Check out my review of Obsidian (Lux #1) Check out my review of Onyx (Lux #2) Favorite Quote(s): “‘I love you, Katy. Always have. Always will.’” “’He…he kisses like he’s dying of thirst, and I’m water.’ I smacked my hands over my hot face. ‘I can’t believe I just said that out loud.’ Lesa giggled. ‘Sounds like one of those romance books you read.’ ‘It does.’ I started giggling. ‘But, oh Lordie Lord, it’s true. I’m like a puddle of mush when he kisses me. It’s embarrassing. I’m so, like, ‘Thank you, can I have another?’ Sad.’” “’You haven’t been smiling much. I missed it, so I decided to reward you for doing it.’  ‘Reward me?’ I laughed. ‘God, only you would think kissing someone is a reward.’  ‘You know it is. My lips change lives, baby.’” Favorite Character: Daemon. You will see why in the following rant-like musings! First Line: “I wasn’t sure what woke me.” My Musings: Oh..oh my god. Ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod. My hands are shaking so badly right now I can barely type this up. This book…it changed my life. No lies. I just…there aren’t words to explain it. That ending…ohmygod. I can’t…I can’t believe that…what happened…that cliffhanger…I need Origin right now. Or I will spontaneously combust. Jennifer has done it again…except this one tops them all. I’m […]

Review: Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout

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 […]

Review: Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Favorite Quote(s): “The stuff was like a nuclear time bomb in a bottle. Toss it and watch it go boom.” “He screamed for the first time in his life, really let lose like a pansy, but damn, the Arum got him.” Favorite Character: Dawson. His sarcasm and wit reminded me severely of Daemon. And he looks identical. Who wouldn’t love him? First Line: “A shadow glided over the frozen hills, moving too quick to likely be cast by something of this Earth.” My Musings: Jennifer has done it again. She managed to completely captivate me and insert me into the tale of Bethany and Dawson. It was a refreshing as well as informative read–It gave us more insight into the working of the Luxen world, showed us the past of the triplets and why Daemon is the way that he is, and gave us a great story all in one! This novel started right in the middle of the action: we;re introduced to the leading man, Dawson, as he struggles against an Arum. This type of beginning immediately captures your interest. It’s page turning from the beginning. Also, I love Jennifer’s writing style. All of her books are written in a way that is relatable. The characters talk , like modern day teens, think like modern day teens, and act like modern day teens. The sarcasm apparent throughout this novel was hilarious. Dawson’s character especially. I […]

Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Check out my review of Shadows (Lux #0.5) Favorite Quote(s):  “My lips pressed into a hard line. ‘You’re such an ass. Has…anyone ever told you that?’ He flashed a genuinely amused smile. ‘Oh, Kitten, every single day of my blessed life.’” “‘We aren’t weak. And you’re on our planet. How about a little respect, buddy.’” Favorite Character: I’m going to have to go with Daemon as my favorite character. Although he was a total douchebag most of the book, he had this certain vulnerability that pulled you in. Like Katy, I totally fell for him by the second chapter. His sarcasm and teasing is witty and there were a lot of laugh aloud moments for me. There was never a dull moment with Daemon in the picture! First Line:  “I stared at the pile of boxes in my new bedroom, wishing the Internet had been hooked up.” My Musings: Oh gosh…This book absolutely blew me away. I’m pretty certain that it just bumped Sing me to Sleep out of its first place spot on my favorite books list. At first I had a few doubts about the book–who really wants to read about aliens? I have to say though, I am extremely glad that I bought this book. Armentrout’s idea of writing about aliens was brilliant–and the fact that Daemon was not hard on the eyes was a complete bonus! So, Katy has just […]
