(Some kissing and some violence) Summary from Goodreads: Keep Your Head Down. Don’t Get Noticed. Or Else. I’m Trella. I’m a scrub. A nobody. One of thousands who work the lower levels, keeping Inside clean for the Uppers. I’ve got one friend, do my job and try to avoid the Pop Cops. So what if I occasionally use the pipes to sneak around the Upper levels? The only neck at risk is my own…until I accidentally start a rebellion and become the go-to girl to lead a revolution.

Review & Waiting on Wednesday – Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Review & Waiting on Wednesday – Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Reviews, Waiting on Wednesday 5 ★★★★★

My Waiting on Wednesday post has been combined with my review of Opal because they are so related… I think you can probably figure out what I’m waiting for, but scroll down to the bottom to see for sure… Title: Opal Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout Release Date: December 11, 2012 Pages: 382, Paperback Goodreads Rating: 4.49 stars My Rating: 5/5 stars Content Rating: PG-16? (My made-up rating to mean something between PG-13 and R, Some near-sex scenes and one sex scene which is definitely described, but not in physical detail.) Summary from Goodreads: No one is like Daemon Black. When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well… There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on. But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love. After everything,… Read more »

Review: Onyx (Lux #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Reviews 3 ★★★★

Title: Onyx Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout Release Date: August 14, 2012 Pages: 396, Paperback Goodreads Rating: 4.46 stars My Rating: 4/5 stars Content Rating: PG-16? (Some sexually charged scenes, but no actual sex) Summary from Goodreads: Being connected to Daemon Black sucks… Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems. Something worse than the Arum has come to town… The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we’re linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And there’s this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him…. Read more »

Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Reviews 20 ★★★

Title: Obsidian Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout Publisher:  Entangled Teen Release Date: May 8, 2012 Pages: 361, Paperback Goodreads Rating: 4.36 stars My Rating: 3/5 stars Summary from Goodreads: 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… Read more »
