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.

Blech I hate bad boys. But…damn you Jennifer L. Armentrout, I sort of love Daemon.

Oh, and he’s a TOTAL jerkface in Obsidian. SO MEAN. Yet, so appealing. What is happening to me?! WHO AM I? Perhaps I’ve been abducted by aliens?

So, I won’t say what type of paranormal book Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout is because I don’t want to spoil you…but it’s one you don’t see too often in YA literature, so I enjoyed that part too.

Obsidian was a crack book for me — totally guilty-pleasure paranormal fare. My one complaint is that the main character was a book blogger, which I thought was a little cheesy. But, regardless, the crack took hold and I love it.

Now, how can I get my hands on the sequel, Onyx? ANNA WANT!

    I’m so glad you liked it! AND I agree with you on the bad bad boy thing. They don’t do anything for me, but I love Daemon. I don’t know why! He’s such a douche, but I love him to pieces!

    Really? One of my favorite things about Katy is that she’s a book blogger.

    Loved it! πŸ˜€ It was so much fun to read and I really like how Kat didn’t take crap from anyone. Not even the hot guy next door πŸ™‚ But I kind of felt as if the book blogging thing was just thrown in there. Like it really didn’t matter and that Kat just needed a hobby besides gradening O.o And so Daemon could have yet another reason to tease her πŸ™‚ So I completly agree with you! Except I prefer badboys πŸ˜‰
