Obsidian (Lux #1)
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 al ...more

“I have a strange idea that I should test this out.”
“Test what?” My eyes dropped to his lips. I felt myself sway.
“I think you would like to know.” He moved closer, his hand sliding up my arm and resting carefully at the nape of my neck.
Well, now I know why this series is so popular :)
It took me one scene, meeting Daemon, to completely fall in love with him/the book. And it just got better and better! I literally couldn't stop reading and ended up finishing it in the same day I started.
Well that ...more
Most of my friends loved Obsidian and I respect that, I really do. I can even see why, the ingredients are all there: a gorgeous, mean guy and a plain, book-nerdish girl, a love-hate relationship between our protagonists, hero’s p ...more
Actual rating: 3.5 (I think? Geez, I don't know! I just know I liked it a lot, okay?)
Wow. I did not expect to enjoyObsidian as much as I did. For some reason, I've just been avoiding it, but it was always there in my Twitter and GoodReads feeds. Daemon was frickin' invading my life. Finally, after seeing everyone change their avatars to the Lux series' covers, I felt I had to check it out. Almost all of my friends have given this book anywhere from 3-5 stars, but most averaging around 4. So natu ...more

This Valentines Day I fell in Love with Jennifer L. Armentrout. I had been hearing through the grapevine about JLA an one particular grape has been rather loud about her work. So with all the faith that Kay @ K-books knows what she is talking about I picked up Obsidian first chance I had to read one of "my choice" reads. And now I can officially jump on Ms. Armentrout's space ship and enthusiastically follow her anywhere...
I am not usually a big sci-f ...more
"If she was mine, I'd cherish every inch of her. And I wanted to. Now."
HOLY ALIEN HOTNESS.
After hearing nothing but positive things about this series, I thought it was about time I'd give it a try myself to find out what all the hype was about and WOW... I'm SO GLAD I finally started it!!! There was never a dull moment in this first part of the series and once I got into the story, I ended up devouring it! I'm pretty sure this will quickly become my new favorite YA series once I continue with ...more
Seems like something Daemon would say right?!
First it was Noah Shaw then now Daemon!
I wanna get married now!!
“So the dickhead had a name. Daemon—seemed fitting.”
What do you get when you combine a shy girl from Florida and a sexy, arrogant next door neighbor?
You get OBSIDIAN!
What do I think about this book?
Okay! I think that shows just about how much I love this book! And how absolutely crazy I am of it but at first I didn’t really ...more
Picked this book up at 1 AM and read it straight through until 6 AM. A funny, entertaining, and very addicting read. (I'm totally exhausted after staying up late to finish this, but I ain't even mad.)
I loved the take on aliens, and the characters are so feisty and fun! It's one of those "new girl moves to town and falls in with a group of non-humans lead by a gorgeous yet douchey guy" kind of stories, but Katy is a really refreshing main character. She's snarky and can stand u ...more

Just to be clear, I approached Obsidian optimistically, looking for something fun and entertaining to read. Because hot alien spells fun, am I right? Particularly on the heels of a couple of quite emotionally taxing books.
Well, apparently I should have checked myself before I wrecked myself, and paid heed to those little warning bells in the synopsis: ...more
Obsidian gets us acquainted with Katy, who has just moved to a boring small town in West Virginia, and with not-so-boring Daemon who is the most arrogant
I really do. Just following the news these days is enough to make one lose faith in humanity. I really want to believe that there is something out there, god, gods, whatever. Aliens. ANYTHING. I want to feel like there are other creatures out there in this vast universe of ours, with greater knowledge, greater intelligence, and maybe one day they'll grace us with their presence and bestow on us their superior intellect.
I certainly hope those future aliens are more intelligent t ...more
It was kind of sad about the whole situation with Dawson (Daemon's brother). I can't wait to find out his story. I just wish he comes back with Bethany somehow. My fave part about the book was the first conversation Daemon and Katy have. I ...more
I loved this book! I was completely captivated from its angsty start to its sexy finish. Thankfully, book two is available because that cliffhanger would have been brutal...
For a moment, all I could do was stare at him. He was probably the hottest guy I'd ever seen in real life, and he was a total douche. Go figure.
When Katy moves to her new home, her gorgeous and mysterious neighbor, Daemon, is anything but welcoming. In fact, he appears to despise her for simply br ...more
1. I only consider spoilers to be major plot reveals - some examples would be : a character death, who a girl chooses in a love triangle, or how a book ends. Random plot points do not count as spoilers to me, so please expect some in the review ahead.
2. Normally, I do not go into reviews looking to compare one book to another. The reason I was a bit more anal about comparisons for this book is because I have been burned before by another of this author's bo ...more
”His gaze lingered on my face, and warmth blossomed in my belly. ‘Maybe I’m just curious why she is so enamoured. Dee doesn’t take well to strangers. None of us do.’”
This quote is extracted from one of the 'friendlier' scenes in Jennifer L. Armentrout’s young adult paranormal series starter Obsidian, which openly celebrates the hotness factor of supernatural je ...more
PURE YA GOLD!!!
I’ll be honest here, I didn’t think I was going to love a book about aliens. That’s why I put off starting this book for so long. Its not that I had anything against them, I just wasn’t sure if they were my ‘thing’, you know?? I was wrong. Horribly wrong. They are SO my thing. Well, at least Daemon is. Holy hotness. He’s just… *fans self*… seriously for a YA book the sexual tension is just out of CONTROL!! I mean wow! I totally loved it!! Honestly, I have no complaint ...more
4 RIVETING STARS.
WOW! I can't believe I waited so long to start this series. I loved this book, I loved the characters, and I loved the plot. Great start to a great series.
Note: I have to say, after reading Obsession, I'm not sure who the bad guys are–the Luxen or the Arum. I love both Daemon and Hunter. Maybe they'll team up and work together! Fingers crossed.
Katy has just re-located with her mom to a small West Virginian town. Kat and her mom lost her father three years ago, and her mom thinks a change will do them good.

What I wouldn't give to have the entire series be in Daemons POV! ~sigh~
I don't think I've ever been so consumed by a book like this in a really long long time, and it has nothing to do with fact that I read this in one sitting but the fact that I didn't want to eat, answer the phone or tend to my kids. Nothing could remove me from my spot. Even as my eyes bugged out from the computer, I still didn't.care. ...more
One of the best books I have ever read and also the best series starter I know.
I have read this series and I must say it gets better and better.But believe me it starts GREAT.The story is interesting and keeps you thrilled the whole time.The characters are smoky cool.I could relate so much to this book (beside the alien thing).

This book was...awesome. Thrilling. Intense.
And so damn sexy.
For the past couple of months, I've been hearing about Obsidian, and its author Jennifer L. Armentrout, practically everywhere. My first impression of the book was that I wasn't totally impressed. The cover looked a little cheesy to me, and the synopsis made the book sound even chees ...more
