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 a ...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.

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
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).
Me while reading the book :

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
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
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
"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 wit ...more
So this book has every peeve you can possibly think of: TSTL, Mary Sue, Instalove, Cliches...fucking Romance taking over the whole plot.
Daemon was irritating.
Katy was irritating.
The plot--which consisted of “fighting against attraction”--was irritating.
The nonsensical worldbuilding was irritating.
The dialogue was okay but also irritating.
The writing wasn’t too shabby, because JLA is a unicorn, but for the sake of this review...it could have been irritating.
That’s like a million “irritatings,” so ...more

“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 feel that way towards it.
A lot of my goodreads friends recommended this book to me but I was like “Oh no! Aliens?”. Then I saw a lot of ...more
Welcome to West Virginia,the land of lost models.
There was something off with this little Virginia town Katy was forced to move in.Strange things happened,people were supposed to light up like Christmas trees and there was gossip about Men in Black lurking in the streets.And things got even weirder when Katy spent ...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
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
Reseña Completa: http://bastvilard.blogspot.com/2015/0...
Yes people I have done it. This is me DNFing a book at 3%. And you know what? I don't care. This book packs so many clichés in only 5 pages that it should be outlawed.
Perfect Daddy who died too young. Obviously.
Gorgeous Mommy with "glorious hair and sparkling eyes" (she even looks good in head to toe polka dots so drop dead gorgeous she must be).
Gorgeous Mommy deals with Perfect Daddy's death by working non-stop. And by relocating t ...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 b ...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
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
