Review: Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout

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. Like that's possible. Against all common sense, I'm falling for Daemon. Hard.
But then everything changes…
I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him?
And what does the DOD want from them—from me?
No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies…
Aliens are hot. Period. This book made them even better. Onyx is a wave of hot alien action. This book is an amazing sequel to Obsidian. I loved it! But despite the hotness that is Daemon, there were some things that I wasn't a fan of.
Plot: The whole plot was well done. It wasn't just a straight line plot; there were little blimps of some other plots. They were mostly on the romantic side of things, but still: plots.
There was a major betrayal in this book. You could see it coming form half way through the book and the ending was predictable. But the person who did the betrayal is someone who you wish didn't do it. I kinda screamed, but I also wanted to hit this person on the head. His back story was a bit unoriginal too.
I've read a lot of books in my life. And in those books, they all seem to have something similar. The betrayal, the guy trying to get the girl but she's stubborn, and the boyfriend of the mom is the bad guy out for the heroine. This is the only thing I had a problem with. A lot of YA books have these elements. But otherwise, Daemon is still hot. :D
Characters: Katy and Daemon have grown since they've bonded. Stronger, nicer, smarter. Basically, the first book characteristics enhanced. The only character I didn't like was Dr. Will. Evil.
Romance: If you read the last book, then you know Katy starts playing hard to get. I didn't like this. Who wouldn't want Daemon? And the thing with Blake. I loved seeing Daemon's jealousy come out, but I don't think Blake was necessary in the romance department; more of the plot area.
Ending: Hated it! I'm happy with what happeend to the Blacks, but overall, I hated the ending.
Future: Opal comes out this December on the 11th!
All of chapter 16. Daemon is sooooo sweet here.

Review: Embrace by Jessica Shirvington

It starts with a whisper: “It’s time for you to know who you are…”

Violet Eden dreads her seventeenth birthday. After all, it’s hard to get too excited about the day that marks the anniversary of your mother’s death. As if that wasn’t enough, disturbing dreams haunt her sleep and leave her with very real injuries. There’s a dark tattoo weaving its way up her arms that wasn’t there before.

Violet is determined to get some answers, but nothing could have prepared her for the truth. The guy she thought she could fall in love with has been keeping his identity a secret: he’s only half-human—oh, and same goes for her.

A centuries-old battle between fallen angels and the protectors of humanity has chosen its new warrior. It’s a fight Violet doesn’t want, but she lives her life by two rules: don’t run and don’t quit. When angels seek vengeance and humans are the warriors, you could do a lot worse than betting on Violet Eden...
What drew me to this book was the cover. I love the angel wings on Violet's back, and how she's crunched down. And the black feathers. Love it. And the blurb made the book sound amazing. I love angels. They are unearthly, different, unique, and fun to read about, because their tales can be spun in different directions. This book sounded like there would be a lot of action and drama. Love both. And there was plenty, but I wasn't impressed as much as I thought I would be. I know a lot of other people loved this book a lot, but I didn't love it, just liked it.
Plot: So Violet, our hero, finds out she's half angel, and that she's a mega super powered angel because who her parent is. Anyway, most of the book is about her fighting not to embrace her angel side and trying not to die from all the crap the exiled angels send her. Yeah, that's it. Yes, there is a lot of action, fights between the exiles, her and Lincoln, and her and Phoenix. Then the drama that follows her because she doesn't want to embrace. About 3/4 of the way through, she decides to embrace, and then she goes out with her friend Steph (note: this book is kinda like Hush Hush) and some bad angels show up, and Vi find out that she's some super halfbreed. Blah blah blah. In all honesty, the whole book was mostly Violet fighting against her nature and getting attacked, and then embracing and fighting the bad guys and finding out her angel parent, whose very powerful. Nothing really........different. It's a bit like Unearthly. I was hoping for something to go BAM! and not her fighting herself to embrace or not the whole book. Gag. Besides this little problem, it was okay.
One other thing I didn't like about this book was the way it rush. It was the third or forth chapter when Violet found out about what she is. And the chapters aren't that long. The longest one was maybe eight pages.
Okay, negative out the way, positive. The concept of the angels. That is what makes this book different from other books. Angels put a part of themselves in a baby if the baby's mother or father dies within twelve days of their life. Then the child grows up, and at seventeen, he/she can embrace. Embracing enhances their senses and special power if they have one. I wasn't a fan of the way Violet had to control hers, but it did create a lot of tension between the love triangle of the book.
Characters: I dont' know if it's me, or that I've just read to many books, but these characters are just like most. The determined, stubborn, strong, and caring heroine. The sweet and loving but secretive guy that loves the heroine but screwed up. The bad boy that has his own secret that screws over for him and the heroine. The bitchy mean girl that hates the heroine. The understanding best friend. And the evil villain(s) that want to take over humanity. Typical, but was hoping for more.
Don't get me wrong, I liked this book and it's characters. I loved Lincoln, even though he seemed more like a lovesick guard dog. Violet, well, read other YA heroines and she just like them, except I don't like her as much. The only reason why she didn't embrace was that she was mad at Lincoln. In the book it says she wanted a normal life, but she didn't think of the danger she was putting herself in, and that the only way she didn't have to see Linc was not embracing, until a situation made her. Selfish, yes she is. She annoyed me a bit.
Romance: Okay, this is where I'm actually going to rant rant. In this book, it was the stupid, shitty (excuse my language) insta-love. Lincoln and Violet's relationship I was fine with. They hung out and they fell in love, without telling each other. Violet's and Phoenix's relationship was the insta-love. It was: hang out twice, kiss on second date, hang/date/kiss for a few days, go to embrace but needs comforting and has sex (gag), and then poof! LOVE! Not. I'm not a fan of Phoenix, mostly because of what's revealed about him in the end. Sure, he did that, but that didnt' make the book any better.
Most of the book mentioned Violet hating Lincoln for lying to her. Always saying why too. "I hate him because he lied to me, so I'll get back at him by dating someone hotter than him." Yeah. There's the summary. But, it was clear that the boys loved Violet, or Lincoln did, and I love a good fight.
Ending: It was good. This was the part where I did have some emotions towards it. I hated Phoenix. I mean, manipulation? Guys are idiots (no offense to any reading this review). But it did leave an opening for the next book.
Future: Entice comes out this September 4th, 2012. I will read it. Usually after all of the discoveries are found and secrets come out, then the series gets better. That's my view.

Review: Hallowed by Cynthia Hand


For months part-angel Clara Gardner trained to face the raging forest fire from her visions and rescue the alluring and mysterious Christian Prescott from the blaze. But nothing could prepare her for the fateful decisions she would be forced to make that day, or the startling revelation that her purpose—the task she was put on earth to accomplish—is not as straightforward as she thought.

Now, torn between her increasingly complicated feelings for Christian and her love for her boyfriend, Tucker, Clara struggles to make sense of what she was supposed to do the day of the fire. And, as she is drawn further into the world of part angels and the growing conflict between White Wings and Black Wings, Clara learns of the terrifying new reality that she must face: Someone close to her will die in a matter of months. With her future uncertain, the only thing Clara knows for sure is that the fire was just the beginning


This book is just like the first one, Unearthly. Full of drama, romance, action, secrets: The Works. Anyway, if you read my review for Unearthly, then you read that I loved it. Well, I loved this book too, just not as much. Well, as much, not as much. You get what I'm saying? I loved it, but not loved it loved it. It's weird. Anyways, moving on!

Plot: Like I said, full of drama, romance, action, secrets. I liked it. But, instead of talking about how much I loved this book (just read my review of Unearthly, then replace Unearthly with Hallowed), I'm going to tell you some things I didn't like. I mean, the plot was good. Evil dude comes back to try to get mama and take her with him, dad comes back, and brother becomes rebel, but then there are the details details.

The book was wonderful. I loved it. But the one thing I hated was all the details that were not truly necessary. Now, I read the ARC, but I feel that because mostly everyone loved it, that Cynthia didn't change it much. Anyway, there were so many twists and turns, good right? But with those twists and turns, came so many extra details that I wanted to rewrite the book myself. Like this one: Clara finds out that she isn't a quarter of an angel, she's a Triplare, as in: 3/4. And she is because, load and behold! Dad's an angel, full blooded. Gah, and then BAM, look who else is a Triplare!? Come on, guess. Well, I got pissed. I felt that all the surprises of the book was just a way to get the book flowing. All those extra details were NOT needed. I didn't like it. I felt that Cynthia could have made the book flow without all the details. I mean, the idea that Clara's purpose isn't over is enough to get in three books, but that can be done with out adding that ooh! Clara isn't the only Triplare out there.

One thing I did like was the thing with Jeffery. For most of the books, there was always something wrong with Jeffery, and we finally find out what it is. Sure, I think he's an idiot for not telling anyone about his purpose, but then, he didn't have to do what he did afterward. Plus, I have a bad feeling that his fate isn't going to end well. It says that these books are part of a trilogy, but I have a feeling it could be four books.

Characters: If you read this book, you might think that they've grown, become more mature, but in my eyes, I think they are the same, just with a bit more drama. Sure, Clara had many changes in her live with her dad and discovering what she actually may have made her a bit more like an adult, trying to make sense of what's happening to her, but she's still the girl that wish she was human. The rest, eh. The same as the first book. Except Jeffery, he's full of hate, which really sucked to read.

Romance: Love triangles suck. In Hallowed, it sucked major. I have a feeling that Clara might force Tucker to be with this girl that really likes him. I think it's stupid. And her thing with Christian, yeah, I really don't like the fact that Cynthia keeps making him the twin of Clara. And that they are suppose to be together, even though she loves Tucker, but feels like he deserves a regular human girl. Blah blah blah. The love triangle in the first book was great, but in the second, it went down hill.

Ending: I do want to read Boundless because it's the last book, but I hope it's extremely amazing.

Future: Boundless is out Jan. 22nd, 2013.

Rating, Cover, & Ending:
I don't like the dress Clara's in on this cover.

The Sand Castle Bookstore (a.k.a.: Books For Trade).

Today's book is:

By Amy Garvey
Released: September 20th, 2011
Be careful what you wish for. . . .
When Wren's boyfriend, Danny, died, Wren decided that what she wanted—what she had to do—was to bring Danny back. And so, in a heartbroken fury, armed with dark incantations and a secret power, she did.
But the Danny who returns isn't the boy Wren fell in love with, and she must hide him away while her life unravels around her. Then Gabriel transfers to her school and somehow he knows what she has done—and he wants to help make things right.
But Wren alone must undo what she has wrought—even if it means breaking her heart all over again.

Cover Reveal! The Prey by Andrew Fukuda

The Prey (The Hunt, #2)

Pretty huh? I love it.

It's so different from The Hunt.

The Hunt (The Hunt, #1)

Anyway, here's the blurb, from Goodreads, of course.

For Gene and the remaining humans—or hepers—death is just a heartbeat away. On the run and hunted by society, they must find a way to survive in The Vast... and avoid the hungry predators tracking them in the dark. But they’re not the only things following Gene. He’s haunted by the girl he left behind and his burgeoning feelings for Sissy, the human girl at his side.

When they discover a refuge of exiled humans living high in the mountains, Gene and his friends think they’re finally safe. Led by a group of intensely secretive elders, the civilisation begins to raise more questions than answers. A strict code of behaviour is the rule, harsh punishments are meted out, young men are nowhere to be found—and Gene begins to wonder if the world they’ve entered is just as evil as the one they left behind. As life at the refuge grows more perilous, he and Sissy only grow closer. In an increasingly violent world, all they have is each other... if they can only stay alive.

Honestly, this wasnt' the blurb I was hoping for. I was hoping for something about Gene going back for Ashley, not him growing closer to Sissy. To me, that's an unnecessary love triangle. What happened to unrequited love? Gosh. But it does sound interesting. I can't for it to come out.

JANUARY 29TH, 2013!!

Hopefully I get an ARC. *Fingers crossed.

So, you excited for this book? Did you like The Hunt, or are you eh about it?

Keep On Reading!

(like the new name tag? made it myself. :D )

Review: Unearthly by Cynthia Hand


In the beginning, there's a boy standing in the trees . . . .
Clara Gardner has recently learned that she's part angel. Having angel blood run through her veins not only makes her smarter, stronger, and faster than humans (a word, she realizes, that no longer applies to her), but it means she has a purpose, something she was put on this earth to do. Figuring out what that is, though, isn't easy.
Her visions of a raging forest fire and an alluring stranger lead her to a new school in a new town. When she meets Christian, who turns out to be the boy of her dreams (literally), everything seems to fall into place and out of place at the same time. Because there's another guy, Tucker, who appeals to Clara's less angelic side.
As Clara tries to find her way in a world she no longer understands, she encounters unseen dangers and choices she never thought she'd have to make between honesty and deceit, love and duty, good and evil. When the fire from her vision finally ignites, will Clara be ready to face her destiny?
Unearthly is a moving tale of love and fate, and the struggle between following the rules and following your heart.


Unearthly is unearthly. It captivated me from the beginning. It was emotional. Never a dull moment. Drama and supernatural mixed together to create a book that had me on my toes through it all. I loved this book.

Plot: It started out a little slow, but then it started to go faster. Not too fast, but fast enough. There's a part in the middle where it might seem a little boring, but it has it's purpose. Other than that, the book's plot was fabulous. Clara's mom's secrets start to come out slowly. As Purposes goes, they are hard, and Clara's was hard, a bit. She had a choice to make in the end. And there was the biggest plot twist in the end that had me screaming my head off. It would have been soo much easier to keep him normal. And the cliffhanger, kill me.

Characters: Clara is like your average girl. Wants to fit in, have friends, find a boyfriend, go to prom. Well, her angelic side gets in the way with that. But she's determined to succeed in her purpose, never letting the fact that there are several obstacles in the way. And that curious when it comes to trying to figure out her mom. And loving when it comes to her friends and family.

Tucker. Tucker Tucker Tucker. I LOVE HIM!!! Official Book Boyfriend. He's so sweet. He's the boy that your dad would approve of. He's sweet in general. Kind, smart, a good athelete, and not to mention, completely hot. He's mine. End of story.

Christian. I have mixed feelings about him. It all started on prom night when he took his ex home (jackass). I didn't like him. And then he started being sweet and nice to Clara, and I was like: Ah *&$&%#*^. You'll find out what I mean in a second.

The rest of the characters are like your basic minor, high school characters. The best friend, the friend that's just like you, the mean girl, and blah blah blah. They were fine. Mom, well, she was complicated, and I think what is happening in the Angel world is making her stress. Period.

Romance: Well, there's a love triangle. Normal, I hate them. Why can't the heroine just stay with one guy? But this one, well, no agruments. I LOVED IT!!  Well developed, complicated, and it made it soo hard to choose which guy to root for. There's sweetheart Tucker, and Complicated, but just like Clara Christian. I felt sorry for Christian and in love with Tucker at the end. GRR!!! This is one love triangle that I will not like to read about when it ends.

Ending: Like I said earlier, huge twist in the end, kinda didn't like and felt that it shouldn't have been there, but it makes everything so complicated and amazing that you're screeming "WHAT?! NO!! WHERE THE HELL IS THE SECOND BOOK AND WHERE CAN I BUY IT!?!" That was my feelings on it. Thank God I have the second book. Even if it's the ARC version.

Future: Hallowed and then the last book, Boundless (made me cry when i found this out)


"I'm looking at you. Why are you always trying to hide how pretty you are?" Tucker. pg 307

"And Tucker thinks I'm pretty." pg. 309

"And then I can feel what he feels. He's waited such a long time for this moment. He loves how I feel in his arms. He loves the smell of my hair. He loves the way I looked at him just now, flushed and wanting more from him. He loves the color of my lips and now teh taste of my mouth is making his knees feeling weak and he doesn't want to seem weak in front of me." pg 335

"'I still thought I'd never seen anyone as beautiful as you.' He drops his head and rubs the back of his nec, embarrassed. He's blushing.
"'You're a real Romeo,' I say, blushing, too, trying to cover it by teasing him, but then he pus his arms around me agian and runs his hands over my wings." pgs. 349-50

The Big Kahuna. I really loved this book.

Review: Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick


The noise between Patch and Nora is gone. They've overcome the secrets riddled in Patch's dark past...bridged two irreconcilable worlds...faced heart-wrenching tests of betrayal, loyalty and trust...and all for a love that will transcend the boundary between heaven and earth. Armed with nothing but their absolute faith in one another, Patch and Nora enter a desperate fight to stop a villain who holds the power to shatter everything they've worked for—and their love—forever.


I don't know how I got this book. One day I came home from school and it was in the mail. Said it came from the publisher, Simon & Schuster. I don't remember winning it or anything. I just know Mom was disappointed because it was going to be a part of my Christmas present. Anyway, I was so happy when I got this. I just put off reading because I had so much to read already. When I picked it up a few days ago to read it, I was really excited. Then I read it.

Plot: I started off by reading the inside flap summary. In my head, this is what I said: I feel like the book series is starting over. It kinda felt like it. She loses her memory and is trying to come to sense on what happens. But then I read a bit more and realized that her lost memory plays into the bigger plan.

As I read, I like to book mark certain spots when the book really sparks my interest or that's a new favorite spot of mine. In this book, I didn't do that much. (Sure, there were amazing sweet scenes between Nora and Patch, but not many.) The reason why is that I felt like the whole book was on fast forward for the whole book. Fitzpatrick automatically jumped into Nora starting to dig around into unknown Nephilium territory with Scot (ugh) and running into Patch (Jev) almost five chapters into the book. Yeah, rushed. I wish it was slower, Nora first trying to go back to normal for a few more chapters, and then dive into the Nephilium stuff. Other than that, the overall story was good. Suspense, action, and drama.

Characters: Nora was brave yet I can't like her the way I like some other YA girls. She's one of those girls that I can see has more potential to her, she brave and smart and caring, but she makes a lot of mistakes that I can't like her. Making mistakes is something that makes me cringe. Sure, I make them, but it's the memory of them that I dont' like. I'm still haunted by some past mistakes. But she made some stupid ones that made me mad at her. I'm happy she made a good choice in the end, her love for her mom and her friends made her choose their life over hers.

The two characters I was mad at was Hank and Nora's mom, Blythe. Blythe because she was so in love with Hank and didn't talk to Nora on why she dislike him so much (even if she was being mind controlled). Hank, well, Hank is Hank, and he's a *#^#*^#*&#%^. That's all.

Romance: I felt that it was rushed and insta-love crap. Once Nora saw Jev, instant attraction, not "I feel like I know him, I should find out how) feeling. I was hoping that Nora would see Patch, start trying to find him, ask him if he knows anything, and instead of finding out that he's a fallen angel and knows about her past, she would ask him to help her find her kiddnaper, and fall in love with him again along the way. Nope. Middle of the book BAM! Love. Ugh. Oh, and the thing with Scot, didnt' like. I kinda hoped he would get killed off.

Ending: I really wish this was a trilogy, but no. Fitzpatrick made room for the sequel, Finale (stupid name). I will read it. I just hope it will not disappoint.

Future: Finale, out Oct. 23rd.


"'I love you.' His voice was straightforward, affectionate. 'You make me remember who I used to be. you make me want to be that man again. Right now, holding you, I feel like we have a shot at beating all odds and making it together. I'm yours, if you'll have me.'" Patch. pg. 428. (N, he's not proposing. He's just professing his love.)


The second best cover. Crescendo was the best.

An Apology

Hey guys, I owe you all an apology.
On a post that was previous to this one, I had the cover of Opal up, thinking:

Honestly, that's all. But then I received an email post from JLA from her blog site that said that the cover was just a mockup cover, not the actual cover. So, the post has been deleted.

So, I apologize to Entangled Publishing and JLA for posting what I thought was the cover.
Honestly, it wasn't bad. Daemon looked amazing. Wish I was Katy. :D

Sorry again!

This is where you can buy all the books I don't want or will never read. :D
Check it out when you have time.

Keep On Reading!
