[Short Review] Obsidian, by: Jennifer L. Armentrout

(Lux #1)
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.

Well, here goes nothing. Again... I'm captured by books of Jennifer L. Armentrout. I remember when I read her series called The Covenant. I couldn't breath well until the last book came out and of how this is going, I will not until this series is finished too. I loved the book, but I hate of how it end and the cover of the book. Like, it couldn't have been more terrible. I love The Covenant covers, so I don't know why the Lux got the worse part.

I don't know how to summarize this book, so keep the synopsis in mind. I like Katy, I really do, but I don't understand half of why she do everything she does. I mean, Daemon can be very infuriating, but you cannot explode that easily. How sexy is that? Plus, is obvious that he has something for Katy, but she is so dumb that doesn't see it. Is she blind or something? Maybe. Apart from that, she did good in how she reacted about the alien thing.

The end, end... like the last page, that's what I didn't like. It was not a cliff, but it didn't gave us love. I want some inside of him, Daemon. I wanted babies, hahaha. Nevermind, I loved the book, the characters, the plot and of course Katy and her blog and reading things. I recommend it.

[Short Review] Anna & the French Kiss, by: Stephanie Perkins

Anna & the French Kiss
(Anna & the French Kiss #1)
by: Stephanie Perkins


Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. She is less than thrilled about boarding school in Paris - until she meets Étienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, he has it all - including a serious girlfriend. Will Anna get her French kiss?
I don't know any french, yet, but google translate says this: "J'ai adoré ce livre!" Which is supposed to say that I loved this book. I really do... a lot. I never imagine that such a sweet story would got me. I must confessed that at the beginning, I didn't like it and I got distracted from reading it. But once I was 50 pages into, I couldn't stop.

Talking about the sweet story. Anna is just a girl who has a writter for dad and he wants her to finish her high school in Paris. Jezz, who would want that? But appearatly, she didn't. The thing she must hate is not that he sent her, is that he never asked if she wanted to. At the end, she went. Life as the newbie sucks and not knowing the language, worse. Until she meet Étienne St. Clair, who everyone calls St. Clair and is the most hot in the whole school. Time passes and they became best friends almost inseparable and feelings beginning to get in the middle, but St. Clair has a girlfriend. What would they do when those feelings begin to hurt? Because, he having a girlfriend hurt Anna.

This book was very thoughtful, it makes you think about who you are and what you want to be in the future. But most of all, how to find home. I don't have too much to say, because my last sentence resume it all.

[R] The Coldest Girl in Coldtown, by: Holly Black

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown
by: Holly Black


Tana lives in a world where walled cities called Coldtowns exist. In them, quarantined monsters and humans mingle in a decadently bloody mix of predator and prey. The only problem is, once you pass through Coldtown’s gates, you can never leave.

One morning, after a perfectly ordinary party, Tana wakes up surrounded by corpses. The only other survivors of this massacre are her exasperatingly endearing ex-boyfriend, infected and on the edge, and a mysterious boy burdened with a terrible secret. Shaken and determined, Tana enters a race against the clock to save the three of them the only way she knows how: by going straight to the wicked, opulent heart of Coldtown itself.
