Book Review: Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Why do you do this to me Jennifer? I’m such a mess right now. My emotionsssss. We left Katy and Daemon after a big shocker in Onyx and most of Opal is spent trying to repair the damage. In terms of character development, this installment is amazing. Katy comes to terms with the guilt of lying to her friends and family about, well, everything. Daemon transforms and finally trusts Katy enough to show his truly cuddly side. Dee is left in depression after the events of Onyx, understandably, and shows an amazing transformation throughout the novel (though it was sad for Katy in most of […]

Book Review: Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Review: Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout

With all my love for the Lux series, this prequel novella doesn’t disappoint. My biggest worry about this story was that I wouldn’t connect as much with Bethany and Dawson – and that the characters and the relationships would look identical. Well I worried for nothing. Armentrout does an amazing job of creating characters that are distinctively different and a love story that holds its own. It’s really a beautiful, but terribly tragic story. The ending, even though I knew what happened since I’d already read Onyx, was so awful (in the heart-breaking sense). I teared up. So tragic. But despite the pain and everything […]

Book Review: Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Imagine all the gushing sounds on the planet and that’s basically what I am right now. I’m just one puddle of goo, and don’t roll your eyes at me, that’s so opposite to how I usually am. This series is just plain amazing. While I personally don’t think it was as great as Obsidian, it was still amazing. This series is turning out to be one of my absolute all time favorites. This book seriously just had me trembling, giggling, squealing and I don’t do that. I just don’t. Let me get this out of the way, the reason why I’m giving a book that […]

Book Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

The simplest way to describe this book is “Twilight done right”. Now I feel your eyes rolling and your opinion of me falling, but let me be clear, I hate Twilight with pretty much every bone in my body. But this was perfect. My review is a bundle of emotions and squees, so if you want a more objective opinion of why this is so good, what “Twilight done right” really means, check out Stephanie Sinclair’s review. If I were to look at the novel critically it wouldn’t deserve the five stars. I mean, I found grammatical errors, sometimes the writing style was awful, it […]
